Learning PostNuke

PostNuke by Kevin Hatch
I’ve begun reading PostNuke Content Management by Kevin Hatch

(Buy at Amazon.co.uk / Publisher’s website)

Having struggled to learn any Content Management System (CMS) from online tutorials and half-written documentation I was pleased to read that Kevin Hatch also regards much of the available documentation confusing. (He’s not the only one, Jeffrey Veen vents his spleen in this article on his blog.)

I’m hopeful. The book is very readable, and includes a number of real-life practical examples of how to set up PostNuke sites — something that is sorely missing from the online manuals. My hope is that this book will help me get my head around the theory behind how CMSs work, and that it will aid me to get to grips with not only PostNuke, but Drupal and even WordPress, from which this blog is powered. I’ll let you know how I get on.

Shower day tomorrow

Just on my way to bed now. It’s been a long day, but a good one. I was out on my bike again for the first time for a couple of months. It was good to be out cycling again.

Like I said, I’m on my way to bed. Just had a glance at my calendar in Outlook to see what I’m up to tomorrow. It appears I’m having a shower, so that will be nice … Oh, hang on. No. It says “Shrove Tuesday”, not “Shower Tuesday”. Sorry about that.
