Just realized I neglected to leave revision comments (sorry!) when I made the following changes to "Building a feature" yesterday, and tweaked the wording this morning:
A) I added 2nd item under "Setting up a reasonable development environment", so it now read as follows:
- Install drush
- Use a 'contrib' subdirectory for contributed modules
- Enable devel module
Reason: A default D6.x install does not include sites/all/modules/nnn subdirectories, but if you don't set it up this way then the features module directory conflicts with the installed features directory.
B) I added the following paragraph under "4. Add spaces metadata to feature .info file":
"If your feature has a view page that requires a menu item, you have assign it to a menu when building the feature. The Features module adds "Features" to the standard Views menu options. Selecting that will cause it to show up with the main Atrium menu items (e.g., Blog, Dashboard) once you've enabled it in a group."
Reason: It's not obvious how to create a main menu item, and the text as it was made it sound like all the work was done on the OA side as part of installation. Also, the standard D6.x themes use the Navigation, Primary Links and Secondary Links, so my (incorrect) assumption was that OA would use one of these. I didn't think to look for the new menu created by the Features module.
This wording may be a bit Views-specific, so I'll review that as I learn more.
