Start: 
2012-07-12 18:00 - 20:00 America/New_York
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

The Gainesville Drupal Users Group will be meeting this Thursday 6pm at the downtown Alachua County Library. We'll be meeting in the Foundation Rm (ask a libarian if you need help locating it).

This week, we'll be talking about several topics including responsive design using various sub-themes. In addition, the illustrious Roland Riddell will be giving a quick demo of tinynav.js, which is a Jquery libary that facilitates responsive design. I'd also like to talk about several responsive design patterns and solutions- specifically formatting megamenus. If anyone has any solution, I'm all ears!

We'll also discuss current projects, blockers, Gators, and other things!

All newbies and ninjas are welcome!

How to get products showing in categories?

I have a site with a mobile capable theme loaded at www.promodeler.com. The purpose of the site isn't to act as a shopping cart, but to act as a catalog for the products.

However, I am having trouble figuring out how to get the products showing by category. I do not want to use Commerce since the products are sold by brick-and-mortar stores, e.g. this site is a reference of what ProModeler offers. Can I do this without Commerce? Simply put, the products need to be sorted.

Brevard County Meetup

I've had a lot of questions about the Brevard Meetups and whether or not folks are getting the notifications so I thought I would put something up here and see if everyone concerned is getting the notifications. Also, Caroline suggested Parrish Medical Center 951 N. Washington Ave. Titusville, Florida 32796 as a venue for the meetups in the event we cannot use the Porcher House, which we can't do when Mike is unavailable. Parrish has meeting rooms with wi-fi and projectors.

    Drupal of Miami

    Our Last Workshop

    Last Saturday we talked about Categories: Taxonomy, Vocabulary and Terms. Taxonomy is the science of naming and classifying things. Inside of Drupal the term “Taxonomy” refers to any form of organization based on terms, the vocabularies they compose, and any hierarchical structuring of them.

    This coming Saturday we will continue working with Taxonomy, Vocabulary and Terms since it is one of the bases for the structure of building a website using Drupal.
    Please come and join us for the fun.

    administrator cannot edit block content???

    Interested in Drupal, we loaded a D7 site on our server, added a $50 theme, and got started. Unfortunately, we're stymied by something seemingly simple.

    Lynn created the site, then created my account and assigned it administrator status. However, my login cannot edit block content. Weird, eh?

    While I suspect it'll be something silly, despite our best efforts, we haven't been able to get this working. Since I am the part of the team that creates content, we're stuck unless I login as her. What gives with this? See attached jpg please.
