Hey guys,

It's really good to be hearing such positive feedback on the tutorials so far! I'm currently writing a tutorial for the search form which will be released soon. If you have any topics which you think a tutorial on would be really helpful, tell us, and we'll see what we can do. :)

Cheers
Andy

Tnx.

1.Maybe some tut on authenticating users, adding them in CMS, granting acces to diferent sites?
2.Something with newsletters? Like where to put template for sending and similar.
3.Or something very basic things.How to accomplish $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] or how $_GETs are jumping around...
4.Integrating some existing services (google maps, youtube...) into site?
5.How to write heavy Ajax sites.
6.Best practice for multilingual sites.
7.Writing custom module maybe? This would be great I think.

If u did something of that already I apologize. I haven't gone through forms tut jet. I'll be posting more ideas soon. I'm too tired now and going to sleep ;)

Oh, and tnx again!

it could be nice to have a tutorial how to create a picture-gallery using scriptaculous or one kind of ajax library ;-)
(some new CMS like contentNow has aleady integrated this kind of gallery n i find it so nice)

Definitely count another vote for authentication / registration etc, that's definitely essential and not 100% obvious (I'm assuming you use the security / member mgt of the admin console? Or not? Could you expose some of the community bits perhaps?)

"4.Integrating some existing services (google maps, youtube...) into site? "

If accepted into Google Summer of Code, I plan to work on Google Maps integration. After I complete that, I plan to write a tutorial on how to easily integrate it. :)

I've integrated Lightbox into another CMS.
Here is an example of it in use:

Who knows, maybe after I finish the work on Google Maps, I could work on creating a Photo Album module for SilverStripe that use Lightbox. That'd be fun. :)

Well, I must go and do homework (my spring break is almost over).

I look forward to being active here in the summer.

Until then,
