Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Modules A module is some additional programming that gives your site some additional functionality. A number of optional modules come installed with the original Drupal download. In addition, you can get many more modules from the Drupal web site. The first step, then, is to look at the list of modules that comes with the Drupal download. So I select 'Site Building' -> 'Modules'. Aggregator The Aggregator is an RSS aggregator.

Dan Pontefract

The hurdle was overcome well before we went live to the organization, but the lesson for others is to ensure you sort through the relationship of Jam to BizX if you are launching other SuccessFactors modules at the same time.

The harvester is getting a "Not Allowed" response from a blog. Which means that the same blog is always next in line to be harvested, because harvesting is done one feed at a time, which is always the earliest 'last harvested' time. - I took a few minutes to comment out the references to the Facebook OAuth module (which is now depreciated) and also to remove a 'defined' operator (which is also depreciated).

A New Website, Part Eleven - Content Construction

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

First of all, how do define events: I needed to decide between the ' Calendar ' module and the 'CCK' module. How about the Calendar module? I don't understand the thinking behind the module pages in Drupal. And why doesn't the 'support forum' link to a module-specific support forum? Given that 'calendar' requires the 'views' module, but not 'CCK', I conclude that calendar data cannot be associated with the other type of data I want to create.
