Recently I created a website for my micro-cinema project Casket Cinema with Mark Wojahn using Drupal 7. Each month we show a documentary movie focused on social issues. The site has an upcoming event list, a news feed, and a MailChimp email list.
The site willince.com has been down for a little while. In my hast, I overwrote this Drupal 6 installation with Drupal 7 core. Oops.
So today the site is live, and updated with a current install of Drupal 6. Still not caught up with all the projects I have been working on, but that is for another day. We need to update a few more Drupal installs today.
In Drupal 6, there is a known limitation in Autonode Titles, that NID and taxonomy terms cannot be used as autonode title tokens for node names. On node creating these elements are not assigned when the node is saved, therefore they return empty values, and the name of you node is empty.

For the move, I chose the Framework theme. I am using it straight-out-of-the-box, because I like the cool blue accents and the Drupal logo. That's what we are about.
I need to add some content types for client sites and start building it out, but at least we are up to date and have a decent theme going again.

Here's a quick tip to make Theming your Drupal website a little easier.
For me, theming is a dance between my text editor, FireFox views of my Drupal website, and Firebug. How many times have you looked in Firebug to find and modify an element's CSS properties, just to realized that there is no CSS declaration for the element in question? IF this happens to you all the time, you are in exactly the right place!
I whipped up a Twin Cities Drupal Logo for our upcoming Twin Cities User Group meeting. The logo is below.
We will try to broadcast the meeting via Ustream.tv in real time! Tune in and check out the techies.
