The Rate module is a flexible voting framework for Drupal sites. In this series, Brian will explore the ins and outs of the Rate module, and use it to add rating widgets to nodes and comments.
I got back into Drupal about a year before Drupal 7 was released, so I built a couple of sites in Drupal 6. Then in January I completely switched over to D7 when it was released. Because I decided to make the switch right away, I was running into a lot of bugs/issues that hadn't been resolved yet. So, I started to make videos helping other people with the problems I found.
With the videos I made, I realized that I had shown some solutions, but people still had a lot of questions about edge cases. That was when I saw the light, and had the idea to put together series of short videos covering different topics. This format allowed me go in-depth with each module. I'm glad to be sharing these videos on OSTraining!
