This post deals with a weeks worth of work. I’m just that kind of guy.
I don’t know if the title is apropos, but this may or may not be the final post about the internship. I’ll mainly be concentrating on finishing my paper, so I’ll do what work I can on the CMS. For the past week I’ve been: changing the theme for the fourth time (it’s more or less the same), adding a navigation bar with dropdown menu; changing the site from a three column setup to a two column to match the Read more »
So today (May 9, 2010) I spent a good portion of the day trying to get a version of the dropdown menu on the WAHomeowners site onto the Drupal site.
