Over the weekend I finally got happy enough with radiant and my extensions to go live: http://www.thegroggysquirrel.com/ I'm probably too lazy to actually write up anything I did to get it going, but you're completely free to have a look through my extension: http://soxbox.no-ip.org/radiant/svn/extensions/x_groggy Everything in the extension is specifically tailored for the site. I've been fairly lazy with some of the coding, and I doubt anything in there will be directly transferable to another site, but there's probably some interesting things in there for budding extension developers. You'll also need both of my other 'real' extensions: http://soxbox.no-ip.org/radiant/svn/extensions/par... http://soxbox.no-ip.org/radiant/svn/extensions/admin_parts (soon to be obseleted by the work in the facets branch) Some of the things that I've done are: - An alphabet-based Page that divides up pages based on their titles. - An ATOM page for producing an atom feed - provides tags to get the variables you need for an atom feed, still needs you to write a decent template. - My own custom redcloth filter to make referencing images through textile easier. - Customisation to the Admin::PageController to preselect the type of a child page There's more in there, have a poke around.

Hello Daniel, (and List) That's a really nice extension to radiant you've come up with, I'm just now starting to look into developing an event management type application myself (and radiant looks like very nice place to start from). I suspect this type of extension might be of interest to many others as well, could you perhaps be persuaded to provide some very very brief notes about what's what? Thanks for sharing this, I'll be sure to checkout your code, it looks very exciting. And congratulations on launching the site - it looks great... Cheers, Dominic

Hey Daniel, I'm curious, what's your hosting setup?

> Hey Daniel, > > I'm curious, what's your hosting setup? I've got a computer sitting next to my television (that I use for mythtv) running Gentoo - AMD Sempron with 1gb ram. I've got Apache 2.2 with mod_proxy_balancer redirecting requests to a cluster of 3 mongrel process. Runs over an ADSL connection (512/128). Costs about $80/year in power, but I'd be using that anyway running myth, so really there's no extra costs involved here (it's a volunteer run site with no advertising). Dan.
