In anticipation of creating an intranet for my organization, I'm attempting to create my first group feature (and feature in general).
Fortune Cookie: Give your group the encouragement only a fortune cookie could provide.
I even made the icon yay!
Alongside the group calendar, shoutbox, blog, etc, I want to add a fortune cookie feature that shows a random fortune cookie each time the url is loaded. It's simple, and I'll blog about how it was created. I'm just fuzzy on a few things I was hoping to get guru advise on:
If I were to create a fortune cookie content type, would the fortune cookie nodes I create in dev transfer over with my feature?
I'm reading http://openatrium.com/build_a_feature
. Do you see anything different with this feature than what is discussed on this page? Any additional thoughts?
My fortune cookie view may need some theming e.g. add a fortune cookie to the side of the view. How does that work with the theming of a view?
Am I missing anything? (besides a few screws?)
Thanks for your feedback in advance. I don't require much hand holding .If you had any short examples or just plain feedback I'd be super appreciative. :)
