These instructions don't make sense with Drupal 7.

Also, I've noticed (playing with Drupal Gardens) that the content type "book" would be great in conjuncture with ScreenSteps. Can screensteps upload content to a Drupal Book?

@James - We haven't looked at Drupal 7 as of yet. It seems it just barely entered beta stage. Once Drupal 7 is released I can revisit the instructions.

Drupal 6 doesn't provide a way of posting content in any other way the one outlined here (at least not that I could find). I don't know if this has changed at all in Drupal 7.

Well, everything has changed with drupal7. Blogapi is outside the code. so they is a module. I can t make it work with so iPhone tools like BlogPress or another. They support Drupal Api but the module come without it. They support blogger, movabletype and more. Even by choosing this in service type nothing work. I will try harder.

I have started looking into Drupal 7 but have not had any luck getting the blogapi module to work. I located the module on this page:

http://drupal.org/project/blogapi

I then downloaded the version from github and installed it. I then enabled all 4 options (Blog API, Blogger, MetaWeblog and MovableType) in the Modules screen.

ScreenSteps is able to communicate with drupal and drupal allows ScreenSteps to upload a lesson. The blog post on Drupal contains the text "Array" in the blog title and has no content so it appears some work still needs to be done on the new module.

It may make the most sense for us to write our own module for Drupal at some point. That will have to wait for another day though...

Any movement on the Drupal situation?

Trevor DeVore

@Daniel - I have not revisited Drupal integration with Drupal 7 to see if they have improved the API situation.

Allison

Is there another thread that has updated instructions?

Trevor DeVore

@Allison - no there is not. ScreenSteps no longer exports to Drupal so we haven't updated the instructions.
