Views, Feeds, Aggregators and aggravation

I’ve had a few frustrating days with Drupal this week. Hence, the dearth of new posts. A word of warning though: don’t make too many assumptions about Drupal when you’re getting your “sea legs”. There are many, many ways to do things. and some that appear to be promising are frequently blind alleys. I think the best piece of advice that I could give right now would be to KISS – keep it simple stupid. Drupal is already complicated enough. Don’t go out of your way to make things any more difficult than they need to be.

  • Learn Views inside and out (it’s the saving grace of Drupal)
  • Have a dev/sand environment
  • be patient and creative. think around drupal problems and not through them

that’s it for now. going to try to get these feed imports to work the way i need them to work.
