Playing with Drupal

Saturday Aug 09, 2008

Now that the Tour is over, I've got some bandwidth for development. So, I've been doing some experimenting with Drupal. In response to a post, I tested a method to create an auto-fill search form that was fun to play with. I also wrote a pretty interesting slideshow module for VeloNews that we're testing out this week. The module uses CCK to associate a bunch of images, then constructs a slideshow and corresponding thumbnail gallery that scrolls using Javascript. I don't get to do much Javascript coding, but it's a lot of fun. I might play around with jquery and try to do some more complex animation, but it'll have to wait. I'm headed home this week to see the Folks. Cherokee should be lovely right now... nothing like August heat in Iowa!
