  13. Key points/learning from it all:
  14. God (or the devil) is in the taxonomy views…
  15. Taxonomy + views are a powerfulway of organising a project, but have key limitations.It helps if your designer/IA is awareof these limitations (e.g. limited data that can be added to terms).
  16. Field overrides! (though not so bad for D7, I hear)…
  17. Theming individual fields is far morepowerful (and cleaner) than doing it from CCK could ever be. Though it’ll also make you take a crash course in PHP.
  18. Node references can also be a nightmare, or incredibly useful….
  19. Knowing how the content is going tobe interacting with different sections plays a huge role in setup (or, plan twice, cut once).
