After a few days of much struggling, I think I've finally had my "a ha" moment with drupal. I got what It had the potential to do, that's why I decided to use drupal, but I never really understood how the system worked. I'm still at the tip of the ice burg but I'm starting to get how powerful the abstract/fluid nature of nodes and taxonomy combined with modules such as views can be. At the moment I have a few questions: 1. On my homepage I want to have two boxes, each box would contain the teaser from the most recent story in a given category. Would the best way to do this be to setup two different blocks using views and have those blocks appear only on a certain empty page which could be set as the front page? 2. Can someone explain to me exactly what the CCK module lets you do. 3. What is the best way to get image support in Drupal? Right now I have image and image assist enabled in conjunction with tinyFCE. None of these modules work with Drupal 6 so would it be best to use 5 and upgrade later?
