To do's for building project subsites

A brief list of things that will need to be done to build project-highlighting websites.

1) Identify all publications and people associated with a project.

These will need to be tagged somehow (Drupal's taxonomy?) so they can be distinguished from other web materials. In this sense, then Views would be built to display this information and the view would be a member of the subsite

OR

Each individual node can be edited to be a member of a given subsite

2) Gather photos to be used to populate the project website (subsite)

Can use Link Image Field to allow these images to direct to a new URL. Forest example, the main project homepage could consist of minimal text and images. When the user clicks on an image - which represents a subtheme of the project - they will be directed to the main page for that subtheme.

This would require (at least) these modules
http://drupal.org/project/linkimagefield
http://drupal.org/project/imagefield

3. Find a theme to use for the subsite. This will describe the look and feel of the website.

4. much much more.
