Denotes Trademarks owned by Our consultancy were closely involved with the whole process 13. Key points/learning from it all: 14. God (or the devil) is in the taxonomy views 15. Taxonomy + views are a powerfulway of organising a project, but havekey limitations.It helps if your designer/IA is awareof these limitations (e.g. limited data that can be added to terms). 16. Field overrides! (though not so bad for D7, I hear) 17. Theming individual fields is far morepowerful (and cleaner) than doing it from CCK could ever be.Though itll also make you take a crash course in PHP. 18. Node references can also be a nightmare, or incredibly useful. 19. Knowing how the content is going tobe interacting with different sectionsplays a huge role in setup(or, plan twice, cut once). 20.
