I am using Drupal 6.
I would like to create for a limited time (start date, end date) another version of a node that would share almost all its properties. This featured version is in fact a recipe sponsored by a company, so we have to put the company logo, etc.
About the only thing that would change is a couple of line of data, another category (keeping the other ones) and the main image.
An exemple of the node I want to create a featured version is here : http://www.moietcie.ca/cuisine/recettes/entrees-et-amuse-gueules/acras-de-morue
The big difficulty is to have the possibility to create a temporary version. After the date is passed, it must return to normal. Hence, I must keep all the data of the normal version.
I first thought of hijacking the translation system since we don’t use translations and force a fake language: French — Featured. Content without this translation would fallback to French (the normal version).
I did some quick tests, and beside the fact that my admin menu is now in English, it works but I hate my idea. I have to modify core modules of Drupal and I know this is bound to fail at some point.
Do you have any ideas ?
Thanks a lot
