Drupal vs WordPress: Which one is right for you?

Here at Raised Eyebrow, while we have experimented with dozens of Content Management Systems (CMS's), these days we mostly build websites using either Drupal or WordPress.

Why these two CMS's, of the thousands of content management systems available? Both CMS's share several key qualities:

Contribute to the Community? Yes You Can!

I'd been a little skeptical about the idea that anyone can contribute to the Open Source community by giving a little help now and again. This skepticism came from the flaming given for asking 'newbie' questions, asking a question in the wrong room or from suffering the raging ego of a well seasoned and highly adored contributor. Today however, I feel much more positive about my ability to give back to Drupal and the Open Source community, and it all came from a simple (or maybe not so simple) thank you. Here's the story:

The Big Reveal: Recent Launches at Raised Eyebrow

The past few weeks have been quiet here on our blog, and as often happens, that silence has been an indicator of just how busy things have been here at Raised Eyebrow headquarters. We've been putting the final touches on some exciting new websites that we're very proud to share with the world. Two major redesigns have just launched - one for a wonderful nonprofit group here in British Columbia and the other for a foundation that's changing the face of lung cancer research across the United States.

Strange permissions on Coda file uploads

I've been working with Coda now for a few weeks and it's been going pretty smoothly. There are a few bugs in the software, or they may even be feature requests :) When creating a file locally and subsequently uploading it to the server the file permissions are set to 700. This was causing all sorts of weirdness on a Drupal site that I'm currently theming. This is definitely a bug, however it's pretty easy to overcome. In "Preferences -> Transfers" there is an option to "Set permissions on upload".

Theming multiple value CCK fields in Views

I'm working on a site right now that has a Publications content type, which in turn has a multiple value CCK text field for Author. If more than one author was input I needed them to display as a comma separated list in a view. How do you go about modifying this? My first stop was the theming info link in Views, and that helped me narrow it down to a template file to use, views-view-field.tpl.php().
