What is a good starting point?

So I have been tasked with a new project. This is going to be an independent news site using Drupal 7. What are a couple of the best themes or templates that could help us get it up and running very quickly? I have been looking around at some themes that offer a news site look and feel. I'm whiling to pay for a good template in order to have a rapid turn around on getting it up and running. Of course over time I will be doing some modifications and updating.

What would be the ideal News/Magazine architecture


We are working on a few publishing projects by now and there seems no final good option out there to quickly get the site up and running. We are investigating what's best solution to build robust premium Magazine/News themes (by this I actually mean a complete Drupal website profile).


We want to develop at least 5 different Drupal News and Magazine themes and offer them as basic off-the-shelf package and add customizations on top per bespoke business requirements.

Seeking a Free Lance Drupal Developer for Newspaper Website

I'm working with a small radio station that currently has a daily e-news paper and adds news to their website manually using Dreamweaver.

We are looking for any recommendations for a developer that has experience with the module and would be able to help us transition the site over to Drupal.

Thank you for any help / guidance in this matter.

Inject Ads into Teaser List

I am looking for a module or method to inject banner ads (these would be direct sales banner ads, sold and placed by the site owner, not Google Adsense ads, etc.) into a teaser list at a certain spot in a teaser list (for example, the default front page when Articles are promoted to the front page). For example, I would like a banner ad to appear after the third teaser listed on the front page.

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.

Byline Taxonomy

After trying CCK for our bylines, I decided to make a taxonomy term for authors instead. I want readers to be able to click on bylines that lead to a taxonomy page with all of the author's published stories.

My set-up looks something like this:

if ($node->taxonomy[xx]) {

Photo Essay

Hey -

I am looking at setting up a way for my newspaper site to handle "photo essays" or articles that are simply a collection of still photos.

I have played with Views and the Views Slideshow module and achieved the desired end result, however that will work for a one-time configuration. I am looking for a solution that will support multiple "photo essays" that are added on the fly to the site...

Anyone have any ideas?
