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.
My wandering mind will not ever allow me to be happy with a single layout structure.
I was moderately happy with the previous layout which I named “Tokyo” but that had its limitations in relation to dealing with large size images.
Ok, back a bit.
I just activated the image gallery module in this website. The image gallery will allow authorised users to upload images into a directory, and display them on this website. Unfortunately, the previous right column menu layout was not able to cater for large size images as the image would either run over the menu, or push the menu beyond the limited width. So I had to find another suitable layout.
Hence I am currently tinkering with the “Bluemarine” layout and codenaming it “Bluelagoon” for now. This layout uses tables – which I would like to see if I can do away with.
So let’s see how things progresses. Over and out.
Just learnt that bluehyppo and TM smart schools have collaborated on education content at the following website:
This includes govt school syllabus from standard 1 all the way to form 5. The materials look interesting, although not quite top notch levels. But this is sufficient to get by.
In addition to this TM Smart Schools have also developed School Management Systems which would allow the school management to use a web based interface to run the school administration. The benefit of this is for parents to be able to view various school and children performance online… and perhaps in the future be able to compare from one school to another.
Gosh I have many stuff going on at the same time.
I have a few blogs going on which potentially overlaps. So I need to thinkof how to segregate the targets / the focus of each blog. I should firstly try to make this blog much more livelier. So this shall be my main blog and should be quite light and fun.
The Mind of Paloque is an interesting blog… it was intended to be philosophical… but how philosophical can one get?? One thing’s for sure, I prefer the WordPress blog engine compared to drupal or blogger.com. To be honest, drupal is not the tool for blogging per se… although it is in my opinion a fantastically versatile tool which does blogging quite capably.
So I would like to keep “Mind of” for some sort of blogging activity… but what?
I also have a blog on blogger.com. This is intended to be a light record of my website visits. But do I need it, given that my drupal based blog here is tuned to the same thing? I think not. So what should I use my blogspot for?
Think think think.
