Words words words

Oh my! Look at all the books in our library! Thanks to the secret elves (a.k.a. Michael, Richard, Kevin, and Charles) for entering in all of these.

Unfortunately there are some bugs:
- If non-administrators enter books the status is "on loan"
- The ISBN number is not required (and it should be)
- If administrators add books they have status "not published"
- Navigation of the library is not so good. You click on a book and can't get back the original list of books you had.
- I want to be able to check out and sign in things en masse.

More meta comments

Here are a couple of uneducated opinions about the website, before I forget:

0. I think the "Reviews" session should go. We should move the two reviews in there somewhere else (maybe to somebody's blog, maybe to an "archive" section as stories) and take out the link. I think the personal blog section is the right place to put reviews.

1. I wish we could enter in a lot less information for the library page. Ideally, we would enter in an ISBN number and our module would use the magic of Web 2.0 to find as much of the rest of the fields as it can. Even if this only worked for a limited set of publishers (O'Reilly, say) we would be better off.

Image module


Image module added for testing.
Add images to your blogs / presentations by using the image and img_assist modules.

  • Upload the image using add content / image
  • Create / edit your blog entry
  • Click Img_assist icon below blog text area.
  • Select from images.
  • Select filtered or html.
  • Insert image.
  • Adjust html img tag for positioning, if needed.

Testing search updates

I have installed the search box, and run the search index update once, manually. If the cron job is running correctly on Drupal then this post will show up in a search for wireless within 15 minutes. We'll see.

Okay, search and re-indexing works.

BBcode module added

The BBCode module has been added. You may now use BBcode tags in your submissions.

Modified flexinode module

I've modified it by adding a new field for presentations. This allows presentations to be linked to meeting agendas. The presentation field is derived from the exisitng field for book nodes.

Done for now

Everything should be okay. Report any web site problems to the kwlug-discussion list. Site work completed (for the moment) at 2300H21Mar2006

Added flexinode moduile

Added flexinode module. This allows the creation of arbitrary node forms from existing node components. This will be used to connect presentation topics with meeting dates.
