You may be wondering what is all the odd and disjointed components on this website are all about. Certainly it is not intentional the way it currently looks right now. I am experimenting with some techniques on improving the navigation on this website.
I did some research on the subject by first visiting http://drupal.org/ and went straight to the drupal module downloads. Read a bit on the taxonomy access module and find that this would require me to patch the existing core taxonomy.module – now I am no expert on unix patching and my linux host only provides me a cpanel access… so I cannot do patching without a shell access to the host. Also read that patching also is a bit of a minefield, so scratch that thought. Let’s wait for another solution to come up.
installing a web links module
The weblinks.module for 4.6 has been reworked and the directory module has been removed. This is done in anticipation of a “links bundle” which is supposedly better built.
re-designing the layouts using CSS
There are a few links on the www which are very useful references in this regard. But I think I shall post them on a separate page.
Another mega-cool feature of drupal is the ability to add RSS news feeds to my website. I’ve just activated the news feeds which can be accessed by the news aggregator or the world news links on every page on this website.
