Some tweaks for a Drupal WoW guild site | leafish_paul: "built initially on Drupal 4.7 and recently upgraded to Drupal 5.1. It provides guild membership management via user accounts and roles, forums with public and private access, raid listings with sign-ups and other groovy stuff like private messaging, image galleries and a links/resources directory. For managing raids and sign-ups we use a CCK type called ‘raid’ which includes fields for:

- Instance as a drop-down list (see the attached instance_list.txt for the values we use);
- Notes for anything else, eg what the goals of the run are.

I've pointed out XML/SWF Charts to many people, and nobody ever seems to think it's as cool as I do. I wanted a graphing solutions for another module I've been trying to get going: Reports. That module is a bit boring without nice graphs. But the typical solutions for graphs (one of the several PHP Graph libs out there (such as JPGraph) require additional server installation and configuration and also generate additional server load. This solution doesn't." & SWF Charts | drupal.org: "A wrapper for XML/SWF Charts.

Geographic archives at Dan Karran's blog: "I love finding new sites that use the Drupal KML module, and seeing what they're doing with it. The great thing about it is that it can be used for absolutely anything that has associated location information, so every site out there can be a site about something completely different to the previous one... The site I discovered today is an Ontario real estate website, listing houses for sale and their locations, but also events and other such things. Not only are they able to add a 'kml' link to each relevant page, allowing the user to click through to Google Earth and see the location, but they are also able to have people find their properties through Google Earth itself..."
