by Marjorie Roswell | May 2009 | MySQL Content Management Drupal Open Source PHP

This is the first part of a two-part article series by Marjorie Roswell. All of the recipes in this article require CCK and the date field (also Views, and Views UI), so we won't take the space to list them in every ingredient list. In this two-part article, we create a wide variety of views, mostly from a single workshop content type. Several of the views implement style plug-ins, which appear as new options in the Views Type drop-down. If you are still working on the 1.x versions of Date, be sure to check out Recipe 44, Upgrade Date and Calendar Modules which will be discussed in the next part.
