In my previous post I explained how to get up and running with OpenAtrium. Once you’ve done that you’re ready for the next step – creating a basic feature.
Features is one of the cooler contrib modules I’ve seen in a while. It probably ranks just below MenuTrails on my list of totally awesome modules. Features allows you to create what are in effect mini-modules which contain code to import CCK types and fields, views, imagecache preferences, blocks, panels settings – pretty much anything that has an export/import function.
