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.
First on my agenda was to install a text editor so users can do some styling to their posts. I chose CKEditor at the editor and got it installed easily enough and tested it. All was good until I attempted to add a comment to a test post. The comment window had a grey color to it and when I typed, no text would appear.
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. I have read that there is a lot of demand for Drupal Developers so it sounds like a good field to get involved with, I feel pretty comfortable with the basics of the Framework (I went to a workshop and was told emphatically that Drupal IS a Framework) but when it comes to the finer points I am definitely lacking.
