Forum Module, Blogs and css to come.

Since I now have the Facebook login stuff largely completed, and views and panels in pretty good shape, I’m adding some Forums. This isn’t too much of an effort although I recommend getting the advanced forum module to augment the core module. Later today I’ll be working with the multi-user blog module. I do plan on offering blogs to members who really want to contribute something meaningful. My concerns about blogging mainly center around usability. making sure that the blogs integrate well with panels. possibly through views. at this point, i’m really not sure what the best approach is. but all in all things are starting to come together.

i’ll soon focus on the css elements of the site. that will be fun and will build on some of the earlier posts about inheritance. the good thing about the adaptive themes theme that I am using is that it is fairly generic but still looks good. simple but stylish. I think that it will be a great place to implement css. i’ll also release the name of the prod site that I am working on at that point. that way, you can see how the css changes take effect. more to come.


Advanced Forum

Now that i have installed the module, i’ll be doing some configuring in sand. I’ll then add some of the new stuff to prod. I know that forum is not the strongest feature of Drupal. so there will most likely be additional installed mods as I go along. But i am pretty sure that using AF is the right way to go.
