Drupal 7 Data Module

So, I'm a Drupal n00b and I'm trying to display some data from an external MySQL database in a View. I found a Module called Data that says it can do what I want, however, there is no documentation and I have NO idea where to begin with it.

Do any of you guys/gals have experience with this module?

I could really appreciate some pointers.

Thank you in advance!!!

Upcoming May Meetup Topic for Tampa?

So, Tampa has it's next meetup coming up on May 3rd. As far as I know, we don't have anyone currently scheduled to present anything. We can always fall back to just general questions and show & tell, which I think can be just as valuable as an actual presentation, but if we want a presentation we should throw out some topic ideas and see if we can't get one of us to speak on it.

I'm not actually sure what I want to know more about at the moment, so I don't have any pressing topic ideas :)

Drupal and accounting

How do you take information out of Drupal sites selling widgets and into an accounting programs like Quickbooks?

Business software like TradePoint360 and NetSuite are commercial packages, which are tightly integrated with accounting . . . yet I never see any mention about Drupal and accounting - none whatsoever but this is the very first question I hear form business owners.

Inaccessible site

Hello everyone. I'm having trouble accessing a site migrated from Webenabled to my localhost. It seems that I lost access to the site following a Windows update. Please see attachment with screen shots for file structure, Drupal control panel, and databases as well as a detailed explanation. I am curious if anyone else has encountered a similar problem and if so, how did you solve it? Thank you.

Seeking ace with the Florida Drupal Empire!

Greetings all!

I am working on a project and could use a little help with some tweaks from a Florida Drupal Empire ace in the Orlando area. This is pretty basic stuff, but I'm a content dude and not a developer! Here's where I need a hand:

To add new rails to my right rail. This should be simple, but something is keeping me from being able to do it. I need someone who can show me how to create them and move them around as I please.

Add a teaser rail to my right rail with thumbnail images that link to other content. I have an example of what I want to do that I can show you.

  3. Aerostars
  4. Central Florida Computer Society

At the April 12 Brevard meetup, we were able to discuss a few of these. If you're involved in any of these projects, please leave a comment below with a status update.

Drupal Site Sprint + CrowdFunding Donations = Sustainable C4C

The issue of supporting the C4C effort beyond the initial burst of energy provided the C4C event is still a problem. Assuming that we improve our batting average with this years event, we might able to boost the sustainability of the effort with Crowdfunding.

I know some thoughts addressing the sustainability problem have been floating around. I thought this should be added to the list of possible solutions.

FLorida Drupal Empire - Branding Discussion

So, after taking a lot of our (FL Drupal Mafia) discussions from DCon Denver a couple weeks ago into consideration, I've come up with some sketches of the ideas that had the most relevance and interest. Attached is a PDF file that has three pages.

The first page is the initial ideas that I had about how we could implement a design, but they are a bit complex for a t-shirt, and way too complex for a sticker.
