Have you been working on our local machine on a new project. Now you are at the point where you need to get your initial progress where the client can do some content entry, or perhaps a second developer is going to start working with you, or perhaps a themer needs to start accessing the code... what ever the reason for needing to broaden the development environment, that's one option for what you can do.
We are going to utilize our local machine, WebEnabled, and unfuddle. The goal being revision controlled files, in an accessible setting (http://).

Last week I wrote about preprocess functions and wanted to do a little follow-up because I was having even more fun making changes, adjustments, and alterations. There is so much here for themers, there is an excess of options and they can be organized and structured very well. Again, as I often say, I do not profess to be a php-guy (I continue to get better, and using it daily now, someday I will be where I want to be with it...) so this structure and framework has been completely awesome for me. So what's next with preprocess...

The less tpl files the better. Don't get me wrong... LOVE the tpl file, can't live without the tpl file... If I need several tpl files, let's do it... but, in some cases, one tpl file can provide enough power and flexibility to handle several content types, and keep the job of a themer a little easier.. o.k., not easier, but a little cleaner for my tastes.
The magic is the preprocess functions. Here's a little about the preprocess function.

My goal is to continue my work exploring the 960 grid system. I ‘mostly’ like the mark-up, and I really like the visual representation. The classes and id’s seem to fit my style. I have an awesome “Mothership” (morten), and developing some very cool subthemes for a client that will allow them some incredible flexibility and the ability to add new themes (colors, images, shapes) pretty quickly without losing the overall look and feel...

Am I the only one that wants a t-shirt that says "I Don't Support IE6"? Let's face it, not many people would get it, and I would just give the impression that I am a negative person. The fact is... I am a realist, and IE6 is going to be around for a while longer, at least long enough for me to keep finding newer better stronger ways to work around troublesome browser.

Getting images to play nicely is not always easy. A content management system like Drupal has so many advantages, and so many options, and so many ideas. The options around images is no joke. Lots of options, lots of solutions, and benefits to many different choices. This blogthingee is to discuss one of those options, specifically, displaying images inline in Drupal 6.

I spent a good deal of time working with views carousel in Drupal 6 yesterday. There is a great screencast at Mustardseed Media to help you hit the ground running. Before starting, please remember that you need the jcarousel module if you want it to work at all.
