Basic Module Design and Custom Content Types

I'm fairly new to Drupal and I'm working on creating a new module to help me better understand the product. My background includes technical consulting with commercial enterprise web content management systems and now I'm trying to pick up Drupal.

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Add a vocabulary to a content type

To use taxonomy terms to organize your content, the vocabulary must be associated with the content type. To add vocabulary, go to structure->taxonomy->add vocabulary. Here you can add a vocabulary list. Once, created you will see it appear in the list and can click to "view terms" and then will be able to add terms to the vocabulary list.

Adding Nice Menus Support

Nice Menus is a lovely module that extends the Drupal menu system so that it allows drop down and collapsing menus.

The default recommended way for using menus is to use blocks, and Nice Menus is very easy to configure as a block. However, if you've already built your page using a Zen subtheme and the main menu system, or you categorically feel that blocks are not the way to go for your site, then you need to change the page generation code in your subtheme. This little guide mentions the steps necessary to enable Nice Menu support on your Zen subtheme on the Drupal 7 series.
