kwlug.org, Drupal @ - What's here, how is it organized, and how is it used?

At the March 2007 meeting we had an excellent presentation on Drupal. A nice high-level overview of what Drupal is, what it can do, and how it's being used in various places.

Could we have a presentation on the next step please? How is Drupal being used at kwlug.org? How does one participate / contribute content to kwlug.org, as an individual, or as representatives of K-W LUG?


Creation:

- as a demonstration of how one might create their own Drupal site, how was kwlug.org initially created?

    - Who did this? What did they do? Where did they do it?


Concepts and Terms:

- Drupal appears to have its own set of concepts and terms, such as 'nodes' and 'blog entries.' Various concepts and terms appear as one browses around kwlug.org - what are they and what do they mean?


kwlug.org Structure:

- How is the particular installation of Drupal at kwlug.org structured? What's in there, and how does it all fit together?
- Every kwlug.org page has a plethora of functionality within it, in not always obvious spots to click. What and where are these links, and how do they fit into the whole site?


kwlug.org Content:

- As a visitor to kwlug.org, what all is here / what is the layout?


kwlug.org Authoring:

- As a contributor to kwlug.org, what is the authoring process?
- What is filtered HTML, what is markdown?
- Can I post more complicated HTML, script, or objects? e.g. underlined text, collapsible text, self-referencing text, and so on. Are there 'builtins' for variable substitution allowing, for example, named anchors?

- As an individual contributor to kwlug.org, what can I do? What types of content can I create, where does it go, and how does it fit into the whole?

- As a (kwlug.org) organizational contributor to kwlug.org, what can I do? What types of content can I create, where does it go, and how does it fit into the whole?


Current state:

- What content contributions are needed / what remains to be done - call for volunteers.


Future vision:
    - Why was the kwlug.org site (re)created?

- What is in progress, what could be in progress, where might things go?
- Call for volunteers to contribute.
- How to participate?

Content entry is confusing.

Having typed in the basic entry, it was all run together in one big blob of text.

Cutting that same blob of text, pasting into Nvu, and copying the resulting source version back into the original text box, resulted in what you see.

Trying to demonstrate this in this comment resulted in yet another format.

Content entry and comment entry are not the same thing / don't create the same end result. What's going on?

Could this be changed to make text entry consistent, please?
