WebSite building in Drupal

drupal-logo1 We have been working a lot in Drupal lately.

Currently we have just completed a site (can't give details sorry) for a client that had very exacting requirements. We were very proud of the work we pulled off as a team and the client thanked us profusely. Here is what she wrote to us:

I just wanted to give you and your team a very BIG THANK YOU!!!! for everything you have done to getting this project complete and working so well!

She has two new jobs to pass to us. We received the first scope document yesterday.

Lots of Links

Following a is a list of cool stuff I didn't have time to write individual posts about.

Random Web stuff

MyOpenID - If you don't know what OpenID is, think of it this way, one sign in authentication process for every website that supports it. Drupal 6 has it, Yahoo has it, lots of places have it - learn more about OpenID and get your own.

Tagurself - enter a feed link or a url and it generates a tag cloud for you.

TeamViewer - excellent remote desktop sharing software - and its free!

Microsoft SharedView - remote connection - sharing applications - great for training people how to do things remotely.

Getting Live Writer to play nicely with Drupal

Getting Live Writer to play nicely with Drupal wasn't as easy as it seemed. When following the default setup all I was able to do was get the blog to connect. That meant I couldn't create other types of content (images, polls, pages etc) from Live Writer. I use the page content type for my non blog related posts, as I have family and friends etc who only want to read the personal blog entries and don't want all the technical guff I stick on here appearing in their RSS readers.

After a bit of Googling I found this comment on the Drupal website

Here are my revised instructions:
