Drupal Series Wrap Up

Ok, finally....relief for all you Drupal Haters out there. This 10 episode Geeks and God series on the Drupal content management system is finally coming to a close. Time to wrap it up...time to move on.

So, today we tackle all of your questions...you've asked in the forums. You've sent us emails. You've called us...one guy even hired a skywriter to ask about the elusive "do everything for me so I don't even need to get out of bed" module. Weirdo.

Some of the questions we tackle include: How to use taxonomies and roles on your church website. How to divide your site up into multiple sites, multiple areas, or multiple ways to password protect your pages. How to setup areas on your site for small groups to function online. Having multiple themes for different users or different parts of your site. Multiple language sites, and why not to use the Event Repeat module. These questions and much much more....

But before all this, we talk about churches who are afraid of technology and the internet. It's more widespread than you may think and possible more justified. All this on today's Geeks and God podcast....

I figured that sense this

I figured that sense this was a site to help people understand and use some of the various features I'd post a link to the writeup I did on setting up Drupal to serve multiple sites with one codebase.

My writeup is at:

Checked amazon. Its at the "Order is being process and cannot cancel order" stage right now. Estimated deliver is set to April 18th for me. Im really excited. Hopefully reading this will stop me from bugging people so much for help and better yet be able to help others with what I know. Really looking forward to it.

Did you go to tracking?

Mine says the same thing. Sadly, I went to the tracker to track my package and their estimate is the 21st at the earliest. But, it is in route... yay

Yes, I did go to tracking.

Yes, I did go to tracking. Mine may show the earlier time because I have a prime membership (was given to me for my birthday). I get two day shipping free. Thats probably explains the difference in the estimated delivery time.

Item is shipped via fedex today

I cant wait to get it. Im so excited....and I just cant hide it....... Ok, now my daughter is looking at me stranger than usual. I almost did the sprinkler like you....almost :)

Getting close...
