Planet Drupal aggregates drupal related blog posts from a number of drupal sites and bloggers. I've only recently discovered it, but have already found some incredibly useful drupal posts here. For example, this one shows you how to allow "everyone, including “anonymous users”, to be informed of updates to nodes right inside their content", something very similar to what a client has just asked me to do.

Drupal node insert error related to the sequences table

I recently added a lot of data to a drupal site by running some scripts that I'd created in php. This was to save me the time of manually capturing the content. After successfully adding the content, when I tried to add a new content item, I got the following error: Warning: Duplicate entry '503-503' for key 1 query: INSERT INTO node (nid, vid, title, type, uid, status, created, changed, comment, promote, moderate, sticky) VALUES (503, 503, 'World Bank ', 'content_organisation', 1, 1, 1171017191, 1171017191, 2, 1, 0, 0) in It turns out that Drupal uses the sequences table to keep track of what the highest id in certain tables is. I had forgotten to update this table with the id of the most recent node that I'd added.
