blocks always on right side?

First a quick 'Wow!' for Drupal. I've just discovered it after seeking a phpnuke alternative for weeks. 10 mins later 4.2.0 was installed on my cheap shared linux hosting service and working. Never had a simpler install. Wow!

But... all my blocks appear on the right side of my page, never the left? I have region set to 'left' but they're all right. I added a 'right' block just to see if that changed anything, but no.

I suspect this is my user error somehow, but... any pointers please? thanks!

user error: Can't open file: 'node.MYI'. (errno: 145)

Using version 4.10. I only tried to update a book page, and pressed Preview, then made a few changes and pressed Submit when everything went awry with the following error messages:

On the home page:
user error: Can't open file: 'node.MYI'. (errno: 145)
query: SELECT n.nid FROM node n LEFT JOIN book b ON n.nid = b.nid WHERE b.parent = 0 AND n.status = 1 AND (n.moderate = 0 OR n.revisions != '') ORDER BY b.weight, n.title in /usr/www/users/photojpn/notes/includes/database.mysql.inc on line 69.

Adding a new locale

I've added a news locale. The user is able to select it ad the default for thier account.

I've translated couple of strings and made sure they where entered using UTF-8.

When loging in with the user account that has the new locale as default I still get the original english text.

What am I doing wrong?


Upgrading Drupal 4.1 to 4.2 on Debian Unstable

I have 4.1 and need to upgrade to 4.2. The update.php seems to offer some upgrade paths but not from 4.1 to 4.2 and the Upgrade to CVS seems to mess up my installation.

I've installed from scratch and would like to know how to move on with this. I've also tried the update.php availabe with the 4.2 tarball, with no luck. When I upgrade either way I end up with a message saying I'm not authorized to access the page.

This is my phpinfo() -- partial

Sorting blog entries by date and not entry number

It appears that when going to the blog page (www.mysite.com/blog)on a Drupal site, that it displays the entries on the page by entry number (ie: order they were entered) and not by published date. While the majority of the time this is fine, I have a few times where I remembered a blog I wanted to write and preferred it be posted on a specific day (or before another entry), but just modifying the posting date field does not change the order it appears on the blog page.

Images in my blog

How can I add images to my blog? What is the easiest way?
