I can't seem to catch a break lately. I started the task of learning Omega 4 (a theme creator module) so I can begin my next project, building a website for my class reunion. I figure this would be a good project to start practicing all the tutorials I have been going through.
My old gig has been diverting me lately but I haven't forgotten where I'm pointed.
I have been really busy the last few day. On Saturday I finished the Views tutorial. It was very enlightening and its nice to be able to understand the makings of the different content types. I ended up using what I learned the next day after starting the Commerce KickStart Tutorial. Unfortunately the distribution changed a lot since the tutorial was done.
Was a productive day yesterday. I got a lot accomplished with my tutorial. I'm understanding views a lot better now and am a lot more comfortable with manipulating data with drupal. I SO pick up things much easier when I observe how its done.
The last couple of days I seem to be doing better at refocusing on the task-at-hand. Last night I finally completed the tutorial I started on "Photoshop CS5 for Web" on Lynda.com (http://www.lynda.com/).
Turned out to be a scattered day. I was comparing distributions looking for something suitable for my class reunion site. I did the last one which was fine for a static site, but I am wanting to make it more interactive, user friendly and also a tool to make the committee's lives easier.
Yesterday I wrote about my efforts to install a text editor for blogging and comments. I originally tried to use the combination of WYSIWYG & CKEditor (and later Tiny_MCE) but could not get comments to work (but was able to do blog posts). It turned out to be caused by a few different issues:
In my previous post I said that I would use this blog site as my guinea pig in my quest to hone my Drupal skills.
I am a new Drupal Developer having worked with Drupal for over 1 1/2 years. Drupal is a CMS platform that has a lot of complexity to it. After being laid off over a month ago I have decided to pursue Web Development as a new career.
