This Blog is Built in Drupal 6

Share this

I've finally decided to set up a personal blog, which you are looking at right now. I can usually find a few minutes a day to write about whatever's going on, but haven't had a decent forum for some of it, or stuff gets all scattered.

As most of my day is spent working with Drupal, it makes sense that Drupal will get the bulk of these writings. For the purposes of Planet Drupal, those will get sorted on my Drupal blog, whereas the rest will get scattered here and there (until I come up with other relevant categories).

The site itself is built with Drupal 6, and I'll probably use that to feature and test some of my contributed modules, such as Embedded Media Field, Views Slideshow, and others.

I'll also write about my current projects, work-related or not, such as my current ongoing redesign and relaunch of Air America (still under wraps), or the recent launch of Erik Gecas's portfolio (my brother-in-law).

That's all for now!

about views slideshow

hi, aaron, could you help me out? really sorry to bother you with such a rookie question I just cannot get the answer from the forum.

After installing and enabling slideshow modules (Views Slideshow and Views Slideshow: SingleFrame) I went to "Views" -> "add" and expected to see sth like "slideshow" under "view type", but it's not there. Or this is not the correct procedure?

The versions i've tried:
drupal 6.16
views 6.x-2.8
views slideshow 6.x-1.x, 6.x-2.x, 6.x-2.x-dev

Please shed some light! Many thanks!

Hello. Prompt please, how to create a display categories as you right?

I assume you're talking about

I assume you're talking about the tag autocomplete: in your taxonomy category settings, when you set up a new vocabulary, set it to be Freetagging; that will get the autocomplete working, so it displays categories as you write.

The Society for Venturism has chosen me as the recipient of its charity for this year, to hopefully offer me cryonic preservation when the time comes. And this month, Longecity, an excellent forum for the discussion of issues related to extending the lifespan of humans, has offered up a matching grant of up to a thousand dollars to help out! So help out! Please.
