    So I just finished teaching myself Drupal. It wasn't as hard and confusing as it first appeared to be when I initially installed it.

    I have to now go and learn how to redesign the template.

    The site idea is guess is a bit old, is it too late to jump on this bandwagon?

    Installling is the easy part. Start playing with modules! That's the fun part!

    Yeah, and work on the theme.. . Default garland is too obvious.

    We just finished our first vbDrupal site (combination of vB and Drupal). It's currently at www.usloc.com (awaiting transfer to the live domain). We have lots of add-ons. CCK (absolute necessity in Drupal), UberCart for e-Commerce, video uploads, advertising, and more!

    Personally, I found out that Drupal is a great way to learn CSS. It took some time and a lot of trial and error, but it was worth it.

    Top navigation "HTML, CSS, Javascript..." is distracting and cluttered.

    And merely duplicates the side nave without aiding the user. A better idea would be to have some other categories, for instance "Direct Response, Branding, Manufacturing, Healthcare..."

    Try hard to communicate your understanding websites are not all about technology.

    how do you like ubercart? was it hard to install and use?

    Also is that a custom design or did you work with a template?

    Ubercart is really easy to use, and is very customizable. You can set options for products, e.g. size, add-on packages, etc. Allows multiple images, pretty flexible styling, and stores everything using nodes and taxonomy. It's very nice. Only downside is that some other modules that you might want to integrate will be made for the E-Commerce module only, which is the leading Drupal shopping cart module. Personally, I think it's a little sloppy, though, and I prefer UberCart.

    ChaseCam is a custom design. We don't work with templates.

    When I played around with Drupal, I found it much more easier to work with the Zen theme. It was made for developing new themes easily.
