In this fairly simple tutorial I’ll show you how to use Drupal to create a simple news archive.
We’ll cover creating a new content type, setting up a new View and then add a bit of theming to smarten things up.
Although I’m focusing this tutorial on creating a news archive the principles can be reused to create lists of any types of content, blog posts, videos, whatever.

Drupal 7 version If you’re looking for a Drupal 7 version of this please check out the jQuery UI Selectmenu module: http://drupal.org/project/selectmenu.

RSS Feed Aggregation allows you to take RSS feeds from other sites on the web and import their content into a Drupal site.
You could for example import news from the BBC website or like DrupalSN import news from all the other great Drupal sites there are!

In this tutorial, submitted by Ms_Kristina, we will be using CCK to determine age from a birthday using date, and computed field. This would work well with node-profile (5.x), and content profile (6.x). I am personally using content profile along with the 6.x version of Drupal.
First off you need the modules listed below:

Anyone who has ever developed with Drupal will know that jQuery was an amazing addition to the Drupal toolkit as of Drupal 5, but you have to be a developer to make use of Drupal as there’s already a great selection of modules using some great jQuery plugins.

Rather predictably I’m a massive fan of Drupal, but in this article I’m going to explain why Drupal is the only choice for me.
Overview of CMS options
So what other Opensource CMSs are there besides Drupal:

I started out with Joomla because at first look Drupal is scary and Joomla has nice shiny buttons and looks easier out the box.

Drupal is a fantastic CMS which I have been actively developing for, for some time now. Yesterday was the first time I had really ventured into the Ajax territory but I learnt a lot and hopefully this guide should help others.
Currently this example is Drupal 5.x only. I will update it for Drupal 6 in another post in due course.

Since the official release of Views 2 and now CCK for Drupal 6 I've had the pleasure of using Drupal 6 a lot more in my day job.
So I thought I'd share some of the new hooks and functionality I'm finding really useful in Drupal 6:
Seems like Drupal has been crying out for this hook forever and now it's here.
