Hi Dorien, I am using your wonderful book (I read it over the weekend) to help me create a Social Networking site aimed at a quite broad cross-section of the population.
This is my third site and my first commercial contract in Drupal, so far have found a few things where changes in module terminology in Views and Panels have meant following your recipes a bit difficult, but I am documenting as I go so will feed back.
Your site will provide the basis which I will then extend.
If when done this site goes viral and grows to it's max potential size we will have a very good idea of how Drupal based Social Network sites, scale. It is as exciting as it is scary.
Nice to hear. Good luck with your project!
I think your site has become a haven for spam as the last few emails I have received are from west african scammers.
Hope this finds you well
Ok, where in your book you show how to do it. Right now, I am going step by step as I am building it. And according to your book this is where you are saying to add those two nodes. admin/build/pages/add
On this pages they are asking to add:

Excellent site and I'd like to know if the book about building communities website is updated with the latest additions for Panels and views.
Yes, it is written for Panels 3 and Views 2.
How mutch money i have to calculate for a profilepage (datingsite) - searchfunction - and a searchresultpage,when you build it? (so in etwa^^).....
You are probably best off with the package (http://book.drupalfun.com/socialnetwork). Here is a coupon that gives you 10% off this month: 639FUN
Interesting to see comments module being used as a wall
Hi dorien...I am Yiannis from Crete, Greece. I am trying to build a computer geek (in drupal 6.15) social networking web site with blog, articles, video gallery and ofcourse user profiles. I am using latest content profile module for users with cck fields but it seems that i am stuck because I can't get nice tabs to display the profile. For example I have view, edit and under edit i have account and profile. My theme is from template monster and it manages local tasks in style.css. Any ideas or module that will allow to theme those tabs easily? What I am looking for is something like quick tabs ( i followed your tutorial in http://drupalfun.com/question/quicktabs-user-photos-and-user-videos-fina...) but i can't get it to work for the account edit (user/%/edit as path in a page view) and profile edit (user/%/edit/profile). Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Try adding a view at user/*/something and add a menu tab for that.
I really would like to know whether is possible to page the "My Wall" entries in a AJAX style? I mean,
1- It is possible to split the comments in several pages, this would make "My Wall" have a fix size.
2- go through the comments pages without reloading the profile page.
BTW, great book, congrats
Thanks for the support. I noticed something on this website, nothing major, just a grammatical error - but there is a block entitled "What are YOUR doing?" instead of "What are YOU doing?".
Thanks for the head's up.I guess that sneaked in during the upgrade.
Doreen or Dorien??
Hi, Are you Doreen ("Hi, I am Doreen...") or Dorien??
Hi, it's Dorien, but it pronounces Doreen (dutch)
Thank you so much for the creation of your Social Networking Book. It is awesome!! It has really helped to jump start our site. I had to make a few changes for the new Panels module. Other than that, it has reduced the time to not only create the various configurations, but also the creative approach to the site design.
Thanks! Best $8.00 I ever spent.
congrats for your usefull book.
I'm a Drupal novice and "Drupal 6 - Ultimate Community Site Guide" is a must for me.
i m still impressed about drupalfun and your book. This site(konzept) seems what i was loking for a long time for the community i m trying to build now. I have to read your book first and ask then, but pls one question before: the complete package you are offering contains exactly what? I did not find enough infos about it.
What I like about drupalfun is the implementation of Google-Ads with the members of the community. Is this part of the package?
In which (language) area of swiss you are?;) Do you speak german?
Thanks! The package is the exact same site as you see here. So including the AdSense sharing, profiles, photo galleries, videos, groups, etc...
I used to live in Valais-Central, Loye. I recently moved back to Belgium for a while. I do speak german :-)
You forgot to hide something in the settings !! Check in the profile above "My Website" :)
Just read that's it's a bug with imagefield. False alarm!
Sorry. This is a test about replying a comment. Thank you very much for your site
