Drupal for a School Boards Association? Need to set access levels.

I've been given the task of re-doing a state school board association website entirely. Right now it's on Typo3, which has proven too difficult of a learning curve for those involved, and it's too difficult to make it "pretty." For a slew of other reasons, I'm trying to sell the switch to Drupal.

I'm 90% sure I want Drupal. Especially over Joomla because of SEO and the ability to control what different viewers can access.

I have different types of viewers:
*The average School Board Member
*Members who have paid to have access to Policy information

Internet Blackout NZ

New Zealand's new Copyright Law presumes 'Guilt Upon Accusation' and will Cut Off Internet Connections without a trial. Join the black out protest against it!Over the last week Twitter and Facebook users across New Zealand and the world, have been blacking out their avatars in protest of S92A, a change in New Zealand's copyright law that will require ISPs to disconnect any user accused of copyright infringement. No proof or evidence is required, just accusation. This is a terrible law for many reasons, which are well documented on, and elsewhere.

S92A protestors blacked out in Wellington last ThursdayThe online protest stimulated and supported a physical protest in Wellington outside the Beehive ( is a Drupal website) (NZ's parliamentary buildings) last Thursday. It inspired others to follow-up with a website blackout event today, Monday 23 February. I already partially blacked out my blog last week, however this blackout will be more thorough than my website-decolouration or 'grey-out'.

I have created a Drupal module to help any Drupal websites owners quickly blackout their website, if they want to participate. Currently it's only a Drupal 6 module, however if anyone really wants it for their Drupal 5 website and doesn't have the technical skills to backport it, I may help out with this.

Module List Review

At the University of Delaware, we are just getting started with Drupal as an officially supported resource, maybe for only 6 months or so. Having just barely more experience than most others at UD, I'm trying to help everyone get up to speed with the basics and offer suggestions how to enhance their sites from there.

Currently, the focus is on module selection. I've put together a set of modules that hopefully would satisfy most of UD's needs. We currently use Sakai as our LMS so Drupal's role is primarily for public websites for colleges, depts, programs, research centers, initiatives, faculty research groups, community sites, etc.... Drupal will also be used for internal collaboration sites.

Move modules from /multisite to /all

In my multi-site setup, I want to install only "finished" releases (so: no dev version, no beta, etc.) to /sites/all/modules.

So when I install a dev version to my multi-site /sites/, and this module will get a release later, I want to move it to /sites/all/modules.

Does this work without any problems? Anything to mind?

Would I need to update the module at the multi-site first, before deleting it and re-install it in /sites/all/modules?

modul för node val

Någon som vet någon modul som tillåter besökare (ej inloggad) att välja flera noder från exv. en sökresultatlista och att de visas i ett block?

Kan tänka mig att det hanteras via cookies eller sessions på något vis.

Funderar på att kika hur webbshopping-modulerna har löst det, men tänkte att det finns någon modul just för detta, som ni snubblat över.
