A Skrooge website

Blog Tags: 

We have been busy over the past few weeks in launching the skrooge website. It doesn't contain much at the moment, but we're working on it. On a side note, I moved all my past blog entries from blogspot on the site also, I hope planetkde won't get it wrong.

The site is drupal powered. I played a bit with joomla back in our sourceforge days, but I'm much more comfortable with drupal now that I understand it more. I guess choosing your CMS is like choosing your linux distro, to each his own (shrug). Anyway, if someone is interested in helping us putting it together, please step in ! This is a good opportunity of getting involved in an Open Source project.

Hey thanks, I will look into it :) Please keep suggestions coming, you seem to know drupal much more than we do... 

Currently don't see anything else, except that you don't seem to be using any spam-protection. Drupal has very sophisticated anti-spam modules, like "CAPTCHA", "spam", "AntiSpam" or "Mollom", the last is an akismet-like service run by the company of Dries Buytaert (founder of Drupal).

If you're stuck somewhere, I'd be glad to help.

Will go for Mollom first, since Dries runs it :)

I failed with custom_pagers, will try with prev_next tomorrow.

Yeah, I guess the setup of custom_pagers is a bit complicated if you're not used to Views. By now, I do nearly everything with Views (and some panels mixed in). It's really powerful.

OK, mollom was very easy, should be checking comments now...

I've played with views a little bit (the news page, and the recent news in the frontpage panel), but can't say I'm proficient at the moment.

Also, is there a way to get mail notification when a user posts a new comment ? I installed subscriptions, subscribe to, well, everything Tongue out. But I didn't get notified for that last comment of yours.

There is a bunch of solutions depending on what you want to do. Do you as a site administrator want to get notified about everything? Then you could simply use a Trigger on new content to execute an Action to send you a mail. If you want to offer subscription to comments to your visitors, I suggest you to use comment_notify (http://drupal.org/project/comment_notify) or Watcher (http://drupal.org/project/watcher). Personally, I prefer comment_notify and use triggers/actions for admin notifications. But as I said, there are many more solutions.
