Details of next South East UK Drupal Group meeting in Brighton - feedback pls!


OK I've come up with a plan for meetings, please reply if this is an issue for you! I've tried to accommodate everyone's needs, including mine which is at some point to go to the Brighton Robotics meetup which is the last Thursday of the month.

So, seen as we did a Thursday last time for the workshop, I'm proposing:

2nd Thursday of each month at the West Hill just behind Brighton station, so should be easy for commuters, 6pm start.

4th Wednesday of each month at the Farm Freelancers meetup, 6pm start (Farm starts at 8pm). Usually they meet at the Hampton Arms.

DrupalCon Paris

Hi there,
Now that they have announced the dates of the Paris DrupalCon (1st - 5th September 2009), I was wondering if anyone has any plans from this area to attend.
I know I'm massively jumping the gun, as prices, etc haven't even been released, but I'm very eager to go - and because of monetary restraints, want to attend as cheaply as possible, so am considering apartment shares, transport, etc, if anyone is interested?
Best wishes,

    Automatic nodetitle problem

    I have run into a problem with the automatic nodetitle module which I have researched and failed to solve.

    No matter what I set the 'Pattern for the title' to when I enable 'Automatically generate the title and hide the title field' it always sets the title of the node to 'ant'

    Here is a related post

    If anyone has any ideas on how to solve this I would be really grateful.
