I've started to do a bit of iPad work and have been using a blank template and building from scratch. I'm starting come up with a template of my own to deal with the peculiarities of the iPad but wonder if someone else has done work in that area also. I'll keep building on mine and will probably release a blank iPad template if there isn't already one.
Miami Drupal Group will meet at The Miami Herald on Sept. 22nd.

I have a five page site that I'm building. One login, one webform survey and three subpages based on answers to the questions.
The survey URL is www.site.com/content/survey-content. I've set the default front page in Site Info as this page. The client would like the URL of that page to read as just the url www.site.com without the subpage references upon login (it shows as the true URL on login). Pathauto doesn't seem to want to let me do so. After searching around, I'm out of ideas. Any thoughts?
We are continuing to keep our meetup open to remote users. To participate, all you have to do is send me a skype message stating that you want to join the meeting before the meetup begins (we start around 7pm). My id is hectoriribarne. We share our desktop via Yugma (https://www.yugma.com/products/yugmase-skype-edition.php), since Skype can only share a desktop between two users. We may use team viewer (http://www.teamviewer.com) next time, because I am not sure Yugma lets you pass control of the desktop to another user with the free version.Read more

We'll be getting together for the 2nd Tampa Bay Meetup in Feather Sound on October 21st. (We plan to meetup on the first Thursday of each month, but due to availability at the chosen location October will be the 3rd Thursday.)
Since our group so far has a pretty mixed level of experience with Drupal, Mike Wright has volunteered to go over setting up a basic Drupal site and how to use cron with regards to Drupal. He mentioned that he would be utilizing one of the Acquia one-click stack installers.
There is wifi available, and Mike will be bringing a projector for the meeting.Read more
Waaaaay back in February, we started something that we never completed. Now is the time to do the right thing and finish what we started.
As part of Florida DrupalCamp 2010, we committed to building new sites for two local non-profit organizations: the Greater Orlando Mothers of Twins and Triplets and Junior Achievement of Central Florida. While we made great progress on both sites, but neither site was ever completed. We underestimated the necessary theming effort for both sites.Read more
Has anyone created a custom node and inserted a slideshow? Is there a hook that I can use to do this? I noticed that there was a Slideshow_Framework module but it requires that you install the Skip_Validation module in order to get it to work. I am leery of using it because of that.
So if I had a custom node (i.e. node-vehicle.tpl.php) and I wanted the images to display in a slideshow, what would be the best way to approach it? I could create a view to display the slideshow but is that the only way to do it?
I was creating some subdomains for a few nodes this morning and I had a problem with a couple of nodes that "vanished" on me. When I tried to view the node - using the URL alias I created for it - I got a 403 Page not found error. I ended up just deleting the old nodes and recreating them. The strange thing was that I had to change the title of the nodes. If I named it the same I would get the error again.
I tried clearing the site cache to see if that would correct the problem but I was still getting the error. Has anyone else run into a similar problem?
I am trying to get a list of certain values from within a multidimensional array:
[field_vehicle_models_ref] => Array(
 => Array(
[nid] => 175
[view] => Turtletop Limocoach ** This is the Value I am trying to get returned by the foreach loop
 => Array(
[nid] => 176
[view] => Turtletop Odyssey ** This is the Value I am trying to get returned by the foreach loop
Come join the new North Florida Drupal group. We will be meeting on Monday 8/30 at 6:00 pm at Meeting Room A at the Headquarters Library 401 E Univeristy Avenue Fourth Floor, Gainesville, Fl.
This will be a meet and greet opportunity and a chance to plan the next steps for the organization of the group.
See http://groups.drupal.org/node/88409 for more information.
The short version of problem:
After updating Content Profile, the Drupal core "add user" link (user/user/create) and the "edit member profile" (profile/profile/1) both give Page Not Found errors. When I disable Content Profile, "add user" functionality is returned.
No new modules were added; only module updates of modules that were all playing nicely together. The Content Profile nodes are unaffected -- they still display fine.Read more
Join us on Saturday, September 11th, 2010 from 10am-6PM for a special extended meetup at MindComet's offices in Altamonte Springs.
We will be working on finishing up the Coding for Cause projects we started back February.

Lunch will be provided and we will go out afterward for food and libations. We hope to see you there.Read more
I am working on customizing a Views Slideshow and I was wondering if there was a way to list the title and teaser in little div's off to the side of the main image by changing the CSS. I got slideshow working on www.msvehicles.com. What I am trying to do with the new site is have all of the text appear stacked to one side of the image in their little row containers. Right now, only the text from the currently loaded image shows up. In looking at the output through Firebug, I can see a bunch of inline CSS that hides the teasers from the user. I would like to override it if I can.Read more
