I will try to help you build from scratch a Premium Social Community in just a few hours.

How to fill the available space when using floated divs

The migration from table layouts to div layouts brought me some headaches. When I discovered the CSS float property, I had a problem from the very beginning.

I will try to explain it with a small, simple example. Imagine a two columns layout: one column with fixed width and the other one dynamic.

The problem I had is that I haven’t been able to fill the available space without setting the dynamic column to a specific width.

Now let’s see the example.

Drupalcamp Romania 2011

I just found out that this year, the Romanian DrupalCamp will be in Bucharest, on April 16th. Last year it was held in Timisoara and from my point of view, it was a really nice event.

Most definitely we will attend the event this year too and if everything goes well with the new AVChat 3 Integration Kit for Drupal 7, maybe we will prepare a presentation.

How to build a Paid VideoChat Website with Drupal 6, AVChat 3 and MoneyScripts Membership Suite

In the last few years, I’ve worked a lot setting up video chat web sites and installing and integrating AVChat with them. I have gathered a lot of experience and I’ve decided to make a tutorial on how to build a simple paid membership web site with 3 user levels: guests, free registered users and premium users. Users at each level will have access to different video chat features and they will also have to pay a monthly fee to become premium users. We will call this web site http://myvideochat.com .
For this tutorial I will use Drupal 6 as it is free and it has the best user management system for this kind of web site!

Hello world, do you mind?

How should I start? Well, I’m not a big fan of blogging, but somehow I need to be there and say something. You might think that I’m frustrated. Maybe you’re right, but I feel really good knowing that it’s here. Maybe someone, sometime will find it, I don’t know, usefull ?!

I will not start an endless story now, a few words about what you’ll find here are enough. I will try to post more about me and  my activity (if you are interested) on a dedicated page (I hope that I’ll find the time to do it soon).

In the beginning I will post some tutorials/HOWTOs/name them however you want, coming from my experience as integrations specialist, pseudo-programmer, pseudo-web-designer,  technical support for hundreds of websites and part time copywriter (this is actually new) @ AVChat Software.

I have an article that is almost ready about how to build a Video Chat Website (not porn if you are thinking about this, and I know you do) and make some money with it. Pretty cool huh?
