OVERVIEW OF UK'S DRUPAL CLASSES

Kosta Tovstiadi, Technical Administrator for the College of Communications & Information Studies, with the backing of UK Information Technology, has developed a Beginner Drupal Class for anyone willing to learn. He's already held two-day, six-hour sessions in June and July which focused on implementation of Drupal 7. Since UK is currently authorizing use of Drupal 6 Kosta's class in August will put it's emphasis there. Plans are in the works to develop monthly classes for whatever version the University is using, and incorporating fully trained interns to help.

Kosta also teaches Special Topics in Social-Cultural Media (aka, TEL 590 or Drupal 101) as a regular class in the College.

You can in qui ire about either class by emailing Kosta or watching for notices on the DrupalUsers Listserv ( subscribe to DRUPAL-USERS@LSV.UKY.EDU).


QUICK LIST: 10 CSS RESOURCES +1

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) are used to control typography, color, and other layout elements on a web page or site, so TechReplublic blogger Ryan Boudreaux decided to compile a list of CSS resources to help us "jump-start" our own library.

I've added one more that's sort of an online sandbox that allows you to play with settings to create different borders, gradients, animations, transitions and text using CSS while maintaining accessibility standards. Once you're created what you want you can download the coding as a zip file and add it to your page or site.

HOW TO USE CUSTOM VARIABLES IN GOOGLE ANALYTICS

Google Analytics is the preferred traffic analysis service at the University. You simply create an account, put in your home page URL, a script is generated, you copy onto the source code of the page and check back once a week or so to see how your site is doing.

But what if your unit supervisor decides they need more information. SitePoint's Craig Buckler provides description and details for going about producing customized reports for everything new and returning visitors to what topics those visitors are viewing.
