Welcome to the Bellingham Drupal Users' Group!

***If you've just joined us from, thank you for making your way over to GDO. If you don't usually spend a lot of time here, you should take some time to check out all that GDO has to offer and see if there are other useful groups related to what you're doing with Drupal (or what you want to do). Going forward, this will be where we announce meeting dates and times, discuss your Drupal questions, and post interesting events and ideas related to Drupal.***

The BhamDUG is currently planning its meetups to talk about Drupal, to contribute to regional Drupal events like PNW Drupal Camp, and have some Drupal Fun. During BhamDUG meetups, we showcase modules and projects, share tips and tricks, and answer nagging questions about Drupal.

This is a geographic Drupal User Group, meant primarily for planning local Drupal related events and meetups, and for supporting users locally.

Don't know much about Drupal yet? That's okay. New Drupal people are welcome! To get the most out of our meetups, you should have at least installed Drupal and played around with it some before you attend one. At some point, we may host some opportunities for learning Drupal locally, but this is not a group for learning the basics of Drupal.

Please don't post job offers in this group unless they are local to Bellingham, Skagit, or Whatcom County. Thanks for helping us keep it local.

Employment type: 
Not allowed

This is a volunteer opportunity and I believe they are looking for someone in the immediate area (Bellingham, WA or vicinity). Just posting on behalf of the group, I don't know anything about what they need. They used to run the conference on COD but I don't know whether that is still the case.

Please follow up using the email given in the announcement.

Access site variables via

If you have reason (e.g. troubleshooting) to review and/or edit site variables, you can do this via a GUI interface (rather than drush vget/vset) using the devel module and then going to the following location on your site:

This will provide you with a clear list of all the variables and the ability to edit them via a simple text editor interface.

I found this easier (or at least more straight-forward) than using drush vset, especially when editing arrays.

Javascript in Drupal - Notes from Meetup

Hi everyone,

I meant to post the slides from our session but it slipped my mind. Thanks to Rob for reminding me.

It is an .odp file so for best results in viewing it I recommend LibreOffice. Keynote and PowerPoint should open it as well.

Join us for Devsigner (designers + developers) Conference in Portland this May

The first ever Devsigner Conference is happening in Portland May 23-25, and we'd love to see you there!

Devsigner is a brand new event that will bring together frontend developers and technology-oriented designers and invite them to share their expertise, helping them take frontend development to the next level. We will be using Drupal as an assumed base platform, but since frontend development isn't tied to a particular backend, our audience includes any frontend dev and web-focused designer.
