If you don’t get CCK and VIEWS then you don’t get Drupal.
In one hour we’re going to set up a simple website that allows user submitted “Cooking Recipes” and offers different ways of showing recipes based on custom VIEWS configurations.
The Views module is at the heart of any modern Drupal site. But are you really using it to its full extent?
