Now running Drupal 6 and Views 2

I finally “re-launched” my blog last night, after tinkering for a few months. I’m now running (at the time of writing) Drupal 6.3. More interesting, however, is that my site is almost entirely powered now by Views 2.

The biggest visible change is the home page. Inspired in part by Dave Shea’s lovely blog, I wanted to make my front page shorter. So now, I’m displaying the latest full post, with 9 previous titles only. This is all done with views (using the awesome new “attachment” display type).

The other interesting bit is that I’m using the latest version of twitter module so that the “twitter” block on the right is actually views2 powered as well (and gets cached).

I’m sure I’ll keep tweaking, but I dig it. How about you?
