Working out the bugs

on May 6th, 2010 at 4:52:13 PM

I'm getting great support from the Drupal Gardens team. I've identified some bugs on our site (problems with posting "replies" in the Forums) and they're working to fix that. Hope visitors to the site enjoy looking around and helping us test it.

More content...

We're adding new content, mining back issues of Welcome Home (the journal published by the organization from 1984-2004). If you are the author of an article or poem, or the contributor of art work, please let us know so we have your current contact informaion! Email:

And if you have a favorite from the pages of Welcome Home that you'd like to see posted on our website, let us know about that too. We'll do our best to contact the author and get permission to post it.

There is a lot yet to be done...

Still experimenting

I'm trying out some new features, managing to confuse myself along the way. Once I learn how to use Drupal Gardens it will be pretty awesome!

Getting started with Drupal Gardens

on February 26th, 2010 at 7:49:10 PM

I'm thrilled to be able to use the Beta version of Drupal Gardens-if you're reading this you've probably volunteered to help test this website and/or help edit the content. So you made it through the registration process. Welcome! And thanks so much for your help.

For now, registration is required to view the website. That will change - we'll make many things available to the public and have other things available just to registered users. There may be a way to set up a sub-site jst for members, I have to look into that. 

Please remember, the "look" of the site will be changing. Hopefully I'll be getting some help with the design aspects, and Drupal Gardens will be releasing some more themes over the next few weeks. One of the great things about this kind of website - a content management system - is that the content (each page, each blog entry, each image) is stored in a database. The design of the site is changeable (of course it does require fine tuning and time)... but the design can be changed without losing any content.

Please explore, and leave comments wherever you want to. Ask questions!  Tell me what you like and what you'd like to see changed. If we end up working out a lot of editing by using the comments features, I'll probably delete those comments before we go "public" with this site.  Don't worry, anything you do can be fixed - or deleted.

Start by leaving me a comment on this blog post - just to let me know you've been here, and to try it out. Thanks!
