Note: I've updated this tutorial for Drupal 6 in this post on the Geeks and God website.
This example "mysite" module demonstrates hook_form_alter. There is a lot of good info out there about hook_form_alter, but I found very few examples that put all of the pieces of custom module creation together in such a simple way as this.

Matt Farina recently posted a question on FriendFeed about increasing adoption of Drupal among churches.
I'm wondering how we can make Drupal easier for churches to adopt. Drupal for Churches distribution? Documentation targeted at churches? Thoughts?

Drupal 6 was officially released this week! When I started my current Drupal installation series, I said that Drupal 5 would be around for a while, and I wouldn't jump to Drupal 6 right away. To be fair, I haven't tried out Drupal 6 at all yet. It looks like a very exciting release, and there are many improvements over previous versions. For simple sites that can use mostly core modules, Drupal 6 is probably the way to go at this point.

What led me to choose Drupal as a website platform? To answer that, I first need to explain what led me to choose a Content Management System (CMS) in the first place.
