The term <strong>Blog</strong> is derived from the term “Web Log” and is pretty much a word in it's own right.
A Blog is a web site, often refereed to as a <strong>Blog</strong> Site, set up for a person or business so that they can write or “blog” regular posts or articles and publish these to the web with relative ease.
Blogging has become very popular over the last few years and with more and more bloggers emerging every day writing a blog for your business is a fast effective way of reaching your audience as well as helping to improve the presence of your business on the web.
There are a number of different blogging platforms and tools out there so whether you are creating a stand alone blog site or want to incorporate a blog in to your existing web site the chance are that setting up your blog will not be as labour intensive as you may have thought.
Recently we were passed a large existing project developed in Drupal 5, and asked to make modifications to it pending a full upgrade of the site to Drupal 7. Given the age of the code and the fact that Drupal 5 has been unsupported for some time, none of the development teams machines had the necessary tools to work on it. What we needed was effectively an old machine with an old copy of Ubuntu to develop it on.
If you write PHP on a Windows computer then setting up a reliable method for debugging your scripts will at some point be something you will want if not need to do for when simply writing out variables to the page will not do.
A recent article from eMarketer highlights the fact that small businesses don’t believe that social media is an effective tool for marketing and promoting their businesses. At Tigerfish we believe that social media in isolation may not give the results required – but combine social media with email marketing, newsletters and blogs and that maybe a different story.

Pull up your website. Pretend you are a new prospect and ask yourself the following questions. Or better yet, find someone who has never seen your site before and ask them to answer these questions:
You may have read Otto's article, “Creating vocabularies and terms when installing a Drupal module” that covers the basics of creating a Vocabulary and adding a term as part of the module install file.
Coming from a .NET background, I love the Visual Studio debugger. I can stop code execution at any time and look at the values of any of the variables. There's none of this dumping huge arrays to the web page and examining the output. I've wanted to set up a debugger for Drupal with Eclipse for a long time now, and setup instructions vary wildly. Here's my take on it.

Having just left DrupalCon's BoF session on the proposed DrupalCRM project, I thought I would take the opportunity to reflect on the progress we made and where the project will be going from here.
A great turnout saw around 20 people show up to discuss the current state of the project and its goals. To skip directly to the conclusions, the DrupalCRM project is aiming to produce a native Drupal CRM in Drupal 7 (which can then be backported to Drupal 6) which is flexible, robust and does not suck to use.
If you have ever wanted to add a quote box to the side of an article or add an image box with a caption, we have added a few standard templates to the Drupal 6 editor to use.
Sometimes we need to do more than test whether a particular piece of text is on the page. Using XPath, we can examine the DOM (the structure of elements making up the page) and get ourselves a nice extra bit of information that we can use to write more robust tests.
In our example, we have a table of results, and we want to test the number of rows that are in the table. We might be using an API function or a node edit form in order to add some information, and as that information is added, we would expect to see more and more rows in the table.
