So, I’ve decided Drupal just isn’t the way to go on the home page of Galaxycow.
I’m considering a “backpedal” of sorts and going with just something like RapidWeaver to create the website and maintain the podcasts, but it presents a bit of a problem. If I choose to open a forum or whatnot later on down the line, then that’s Yet Another Disparate Database. The WordPress blogs linked in from here are on their own separate databases and so would the forum. You’d be registering multiple times for this website.
I’m open to ideas. Really.
