Typo3

Almost all the tutorials out there are geared toward an administrator, not a user.  I did find a few links though.  If you find anything useful, I'd be very interested in hearing about it.

  • Typo3's video Quick reference.
  • Typo3's Tutorials (scroll down to "Helpful Typo3 Tutorials").  NOTE: this is for an earlier version of Typo3, I include them because it's one of the few places I've found user tutorials, not developer tutorials.  So if something seems different, it's likely because the version shown is not what we are using.

General website planning and some on content design.  Good sources if you are planning your website's structure and content delivery

Drupal

Drupals "home" is http://drupal.org/ there you will find documentation as well as an extensive community where you can ask questions (I have!).  They also have a beginners cookbook which shows everything about setting up a simple site.  Please note that some of the topics cover administrative aspects of Drupal, and you may not have access to this.
