An Ad Module That's Not an Ad Module

I use the simple ads module and sell my own ads.
Local, smallish town news can't survive on 3rd party ads.

For a time I used the google chrome ad block so I could get rid of the annoying popups that lead to malware on weird channels that stream sports sites.

But I realized that was hiding the ads on my site, so I stopped.

While there has been a lot of discussion about OP in D6 & D7, I believe you can still do a lot with OP2 (D6).

Newspaper taxonomy best practices

As newspapers, we are taxonomy nuts. Surprisingly, there isn't any documented best practices for how to form and use a taxonomy tree.

I am in the early phase of deciding on a main taxonomy tree for 6 newspapers and would be very interested in knowing how others run things.

Some questions:

  • Did your main taxonomy start from a pre-made tree? Associated Press offers one but are there others?

  • Do you include geographical information (State, Region, City) in your main taxonomy tree or do you rely on a set of address fields.

ProsePoint Express, A Drupal-based multisite newspaper CMS

Hi all,

Good day. Just wanted to pop my head in and let everyone know about the new newspaper cms we've been developing. I did a Drupal showcase write up on it a couple of months ago but that seems to have faded away into obscurity.

Case Study: Fight Back! Newspaper Re-Launched Using Drupal

Only local images are allowed.Fight Back! is a grassroots newspaper that exists to build the people's struggle and “provides coverage and analysis of some of the key battles facing working and low-income people”. The newspaper was founded in 1999 by a core of activists who wanted an independent publication to help with their organizing efforts for social justice, peace, and equality. Ten years and nearly two thousand articles later, an all-volunteer staff and dozens of correspondents across the country report (in English and Spanish) from the front lines of the most important struggles facing working and oppressed peoples in the United States and internationally.
