Friend asked how to get the latest d7 version. I said go to the Download link, eg under Build > Download and Extend, or under Try Drupal > Download.

He pointed out that it only has a button for d8 download at https://www.drupal.org/download.


  • Simply not the best idea to funnel people to a conceptionally outdated project. Why would your friend download D7?

Most likely because they don't want people to be confused by the two different versions and want to simply funnel folks to the latest D8 version.

Here's likely the easiest download link to share for D7 enthusiasts: https://www.drupal.org/project/drupal

    And not to forget backdropcms.org, a D7 fork for people who don't like the OOP turn of D8.
