» Trying Mollom

I’ve just installed the Mollom module for Drupal, lets see how it works. I’ve read so much praise on the official Drupal Planet (read for example this, this or that) that I could no longer resist. Installation and setup is a breeze, OpenID is supported on the Mollom website.

As you might have read I’ve ported the Spam module for Drupal 6. It worked fine. Haven’t got a problem with it at all. But I recon Mollom is the way to go.

I’ve got a pretty well working spam module for Drupal 6 now. Please test it, you can get the most up-to-date tarball here:

Take the last tarball available, should be the best. I’m planning on testing it live on this site. On my localhost testbox it worked pretty well.

Yes! I’ve finally done it. I’ve moved my website to Drupal, which is so much better than my old 3co stuff. Tons of great modules out there and those I couldn’t find for Drupal 6, which was recently released, I ported. Well not all of them, there are still some I’m really looking forward. On the top of my list are definitely the spam module and the Akismet module. Minutes after my move I got my first spam comment…

Well let’s see how I might get involved into Drupal development. I already filed some patches for the following modules:

  1. Marksmarty: better GeSHi support and some other minor things, but it doesn’t seem to be what the maintainer wants. I’ll have to move it into another extra-module then. Also some work to separate Smartypants and Markdown into distinct modules. Furtheron I’ve added support for PHP Markdown’s no-markup mode. This as well needs some more work. Maybe it will be dropped again and the pristine Drupal HTML Filter will be used, lets see.

  2. Spam: started porting it to Drupal 6 but I think I based my work on the wrong branch. Needs much more work.

  3. Get Content Type: added RSS feeds, my Blog and Code Snippets section are based on this module. My patch was accepted and committed already.

  4. Filter by Node Type: ported to Drupal 6, works like a charm; patch didn’t get any reply yet

It’s crazy how easy development of Drupal modules is. I love it! Stay tuned for more Drupal related geekery.
