TUTORIAL DRUPAL : CREATING HOMEPAGE [part 2]

Now i’m gonna write about how we make “News and Event” that appear at homepage.
First off all lets see the analysis. Overall analysis is already made at the first part of this blog. You can access it from these link. Anyway here’s the analysis.


From the first analysis-i don’t know if that is called analysis- i still don’t know what “Content Type” or “Module” that being used.
After done with several test, and try it seems that “Blog Module” have some “Block” called “Recent Blog Post”. This block is displaying recent blog post without the dates. I think its preety much the same except maybe a little detail. So im gonna use this module. To create “News and Event”.



Activate the module to add blog functionallity to the web. Go to [Administer->Site Building->Modules]. Then Check “Blog” to enable them.


As you can see we now have “Blog Entry” Submenu at the “Create Content Menu”.



Lets just start creating Content. Go to [Create Content->Blog Entry].

Fill Title as the title of an article that youve made and Body for the article.

And the don’t forget to Uncheck “Promoted to Front Page” so the article won’t be shown at the homepage area. “Promoted to Front Page” located at “Publishing Options” Category.




Create a few article, two article maybe three. If you don’t know what to write just copy paste something from the web.

We’re done Creating Article. Next thing to do is to activate the “Recent blog post” blocks.
To activate the blocks go to [Administer-> Site Building -> Blocks].



As you can see now “Recent Blog Post” block is already appear at the Disabled Category.
Now lets decide where the right area for the “Recent Blog Post” to appear. I think right side bar is a good idea. Lets choose right side bar from region combobox. Then click save.



As you can see now a “Recent Blog Post” is actually show at right side bar. And now all we have to do is to change the title into “News and Event”.

Just go to blocks again click configure at "Recent Blog Post" and then change the title of the block into “News and Event”.

Thats it. Congratulation you’ve done creating Recent “News and Event” to the site without the date and without which site that updating the article.

Thanks for reading. I don’t know what to write for the next chapter. But i’ll figure it out somehow
