Social Networking Tutorial



It has been a while that I wrote this blog:

creating social networking like orkut in Drupal

We are about to launch a social networking site, more precisely, a Facebook clone and are calling it Kickwork. There is lot that has happened. It has become a huge code and a lot of templates. One article that has come a lot of useful is:

This article talks about how to create your custom user profile. The way user profile can be overriden. Rest automatically falls in place. Most of the time, we were overridding already existing code in template files. Sometimes, we had to customize the already existing module to suit our specifications. Other time, we wrote a couple of modules. Overall, it was a pleasure working on Drupal on a community site. If time permits, we are going to release step by step tutorial on how to make a social networking site on Drupal.
