My old blog at http://more.zites.net was running on Drupal 5 for quite a while. With the recent release of Drupal 7 I thought it would be a good time to update my blog. So finally, I did and here it is: http://wolfgangziegler.net As the old node-profile/views-fusion demo was running on my old blog, it's offline now too. During the last 4 and a half year, about 3000 users tried the demo. But who knows how many of those just tried to spam the site? ;) Anyway, good bye, Drupal 5!
I'm really happy to announce that Content Profile is going to be the common base module for "profiles-as-nodes" solutions in drupal 6.x! After a long discussion thought my efforts to join bio and node profile development were for nothing. But then the discussion continued and we were able to agree on a common base module, which avoids unnecessary code duplication and provides an API on which further extension modules may rely on. The people from FunnyMonkey started working on it and agreed with me on continuing my previous work on this topic: Content Profile :) So now as we have a decision we can concentrate on coding..
Some time ago I started a discussion about the profiles as nodes modules in drupal 6 (link). I'd like to see node profile and the bio module merged into one superior module!
I'm happy to announce the 1.2 release of node profile. Apart from a lot of bug fixes the new release features integration with the rolesignup and the workflow-ng module.
Thanks to the great subform element API module, which I wrote originally for pageroute, it was quite easy to implement some great new features for the node profile module, which make building simple node profiles a lot easier. So node profile 1.1 features
- configurable user edit categories integration - edit a simple nodeprofile like a core profile
- configurable node profile display integration on the user's (my account) page or - if used - also on the usernode
- configurable user registration integration
- easy integration of a nodeprofile in any theme
Drupal 5 has been already released, so it's time to port the nodeprofile modules to 5.x My current employer Pro.Karriere has now also employed jpetso, who helps me porting the modules to 5.x. So thanks to jpetso the usernode module has been already ported - just check out its 5.x development branch. So what's next?
- port nodefamily to 5.x -ported
- port nodeprofile to 5.x -ported
- port views_fusion to 5.x -ported
- port pageroute to 5.x -ported
Great news! merlinofchaos has released views version 1.2 for drupal 4.7, which comes with views fusion support out of the box. So there is no further patching of views required :) So making sophistaced views containing data of several nodes like this userlist becomes easier than ever. Thanks to merlinofchaos :)
Sym has created a great addition to the nodeprofile modules, the Registerprofile module, which allows one to place the nodeprofile forms on the registration screen. Furthermore this works fine together with his rolesignup module, which allows the registering user to choose his role when he signs up. Thanks for your great work sym :)
I added more documentation to the pageroute module. Update your nodefamily and pageroute modules! You can find it in the documentation area of your drupal installation ('admin/help') if you have the help module activated. Now I'm considering all really necessary documentation as complete :) So I've finally tagged all the nodeprofile modules with DRUPAL-4-7!
Finally the usernode module got its own project. As an effect its no t distributed with the nodeprofile module any more. So be sure to download the separate usernode module to get the latest updates :)
