Have you ever wanted to add a signup form to your free events? The Webform module, which has been around Drupal for a while is a great option. The following is a simple recipe of modules and configuration that will allow you to add a signup form to your event content type ... or any other content type of course.

You can draw any kind of layout you want on paper but that doesn't mean you can accommodate that layout with the theme you are using. If you want to manage your design budget, create an opportunity for efficient page development, and ensure flexibility while you work to sustain your site, you need to plan your layout with your theme in mind.This session explores the basics of:
There is a Drupal module called Panels. There is a Drupal module called Context. There is a feature in Panels called context. Panel's context and the Context module are not the same, not even close. According to Earl Miles, the developer of Panels: "In Panels, context is lingo for a wrapper around any significant object. By default, Panels supports 'Node', 'Taxonomy term', 'Taxonomy vocabulary', and 'User' as contexts." But what does that mean?
I recently purchased "Drupal 6 Panels Cookbook" from Packt Publishing, hoping to get all my context/relationships questions answered. I did learn a couple things from the book so it wasn't money wasted but it didn't answer all my questions. So I did what I often have to do, I starting clicking and observing what happens. This article is what I have figured out. I hope you find this useful.
I have had a couple people ask how to manage group membership so here is a quick how-to on the subject.
This article looks at Drupal's Organic Groups module configuration and access setting for a project management support scenario. I chose this scenario because it doesn’t naturally fall into the social media and networking conventions for which organic groups naturally fits. Drupal and many of its contributed modules are designed to work the way you want them to.
Organic Groups (OG) includes several modules, one of which is Organic Groups Notifications (OGN). By using the OGN module, you can allow your group members to receive notifications and subscribe to group content. OGN runs on Drupal’s messaging and notifications frameworks so you will need these modules as well, which brings me to the purpose of this article.
Notice: This post is for Drupal 6 OG
There is a presentation online, Intro to Organic Groups, that has some useful information but the nature of the presentation might not be enough to help you install and configure organic groups. Given how long it took me to find the answers to my questions, I thought I would share what I learned and did to set up this site.
