Sweet Knowthings

Technology Blog

Last week I got the idea for a site where people could post pictures of mysterious things and ask for, or provide, an explanation. So I set to work and within a few hours there it was: Knowthings.co.uk, everyday mysteries.

It’s a good example of how a Drupal site can be built very quickly if the needs are simple. It uses the celju theme with one or two small modifications to fix cross-browser issues.

The whole thing cost very little – £6.56 to register the domain name, plus about 3 hours of my time, plus some hosting space and bandwidth on a package I’d already paid for. If it starts attracting hordes of visitors – which I doubt, to be honest – then I’ll put ads on it and maybe it’ll pay for itself. It was fun to do, anyway.

Have you an idea for a site which could be done as quickly?
