We have now joined the Drupal Churches Group. We are positioning ourself to market Drupal based CMS (Content Management System) websites to churches here in Australia and New Zealand, though of course location is no barrier.
We are preparing marketing and promotional material and will be starting to deliver this to churches soon.
As a special pre-release offer, if your church or other not-for-profit organisation mentions that you found this promotional code XMJCDC01 on this website we will give your organisation a 40% discount off your first years hosting when you sign up for a combined Drupal website development and managed hosting package. Thats right 40% off! Once we release the promotions this offer will expire and this page will be updated.
I have just completed the redevelopment of the Spy Journal Website. From now on all Personal, Excel, Tech and Blog posts previously put on the Spy Journal site will be in the new Drupal site. The web address is still www.spyjournal.biz.
This site is using Drupal version 5.2.0 This version is now matured enough to be easily installed and configured. In fact it is a lot easier than previous versions with every 3rd party module that I installed that required database modification having a script that worked perfectly.
For all the previous posts check these Spy Journal Archive links:
For the specific pages in Version 2, check these links:
The latest website hosted and developed by Jethro www.annasbeach.com
This is a Drupal website with a custom designed theme.
If you are looking for a content management website, incorporating restricted access to specific logged in users, custom drupal theme development or hands on training then contact us.
Under create content you can choose a type.
If you want to put in news or information that is not date related – e.g. it’s not an event as such - then you use story.
If you want to set up an event and it will go into the calendar then use page.
You can see who it is authored by, the date and timestamp (the only reason you would change this is if you want to switch the order things are displayed in with out using sticky)
Published means it is visible on the site. Only turn it off if you want to work on something as a draft.
In moderation queue you don’t really need at the moment so ignore it.
Promoted to front page is only for info you want to have it show on the very front home page.
Sticky at top of lists (see previous page for explanation).
Each bit of information you enter on the site is called a node.
Nodes can be pages, images, polls, forum topics, replies, or stories. These are the node types set up on the site. Comments are also nodes.
They all have a timestamp - that is the date and time they are entered. By default they all go in chronological order.
What is sticky used for?
Anything that is always at the top of a page is sticky.
If you want something to stay at the top of a list, even if it’s older, then you make it sticky, then it will always stay at the top. If you make more than one thing sticky in a category, then they will both be at the top with the newest one higher up.
When you don’t need that bit of information any more (e.g. the Christmas play is now in the past and people don’t need to know that it’s coming up) you can edit it and make it not sticky (or delete it altogether).
