July Meeting - Drupal Orlando

Start: 
2014-07-14 18:30 - 20:00 America/New_York
Organizers: 

This month will be an overview about Migrate API - used to migrate Drupal 6 to 7, or using a legacy database, XML file or spreadsheet. Migrate from Wordpress to Drupal is one popular example.

Migrate will also be the official upgrade path from Drupal 6 or 7 to Drupal 8, so it's a good idea to become familiar with it now.

Orlando Public Library
101 E Central Blvd, Orlando, FL

2nd floor - Melrose Center

open uploaded PDF file in NEW Window

Looking for a work around to have my PDF files, which are uploaded through the attach file, to open in a New Window
I found this node
https://www.drupal.org/node/301234#comment-4764468
Using Drupal 7

27 seems to be the answer however I do not seem to be able to make it work

It says to edit this in the php code when you insert it.
function THEMENAME_file_link($variables)

THEMENAME I think should be the machine name of your theme.
How do I find this?
If a theme is based on another theme which template.php would I edit.

thanks in advance
Cheryl

Start an Ocala MeetUp

Hi. Since I am on the west coast, in Crystal River, I am between Gainesville, Orlando, Tampa, Spring Hill.. so I figure I would see if anyone would be interested in a meetup in Ocala; possibly the Central Florida campus. Let us see how this goes.

Parent/Child Data Modeling Part 2

Hey Everyone,
I'd say it's time to approach part 2 of our little workshop from last month. What I'd like to do is this:

1: Give all of you, prior to the meetup a full working copy of Part 1. As in the full site completed up to where we left off.
2: Finish up the few items we did not get to at Part 1.
3: Complete a new list of enhancements, changes and features together.
4: Do a complete review on a high level of everything we covered between Part 1 and Part 2.
5: Together, brain storm some future requests of features.

CFCS Drupal Camp Site Assistance

After all this time the site created by Drupal Camp has been migrated to Pantheon and now has Drupal core 7.23.
CFCS hosting is up 13th of July and we are hoping Pantheon will donate hosting for us, but need to get the site live etc.

I have been trying for a week to update the modules and even add content.
I have run into many error messages which I am not able to resolve.
Would anyone be willing to get the site up to date and working so we can start and add content and put live?

thank you all in advance
Cheryl

#IRC, it's not a hashtag

IRC #drupal-florida is one of our best kept secrets. It's a great place to ask questions, brainstorm, or just chat. Here is a short guide to get you started if you fall into one of the following categories:

  1. You don't know what irc is
  2. You haven't been on irc since 1990
  3. You didn't know that Florida had their own channel
  4. No one ever answers your questions in the "big channels"
  5. The bot scares you

How to join (it's free)
Easiest: Click here: http://webchat.freenode.net/
Nickname: use your drupal groups name
Channels: #drupal-florida

Brevard Meetup - Tuesday June 17, 2014 - Cocoa Village

Start:

Organizers: 

Come join us on Tuesday, June 17, 2014 at 6:30pm at Ryan's Village Pizza in Cocoa Village. Come for Pizza, Beer, Wine, Learning and Friendship!!

A while back I had to customize a entityform form. Try as I might, I just could not find a module to do what I needed. So, I had to take that dread plunge into the the dark work of php, Drupal hooks and functions, and arrays of deaths. Other than additional head trauma, I survived.

drupal developer: mix of front-end and back-end | localwild, inc

Employment type: 
Part time
Employment type: 
Contract
Telecommute: 
Allowed

We are a Gainesville-based tech company specializing in support and sales of neurofeedback systems.

Our website is based on drupal commerce kickstart, but has some issues that may be trivial for someone with experience in this area. Or not, i don't know. I have some experience with drupal dev, but mostly limited zen theme/front-end stuff (some sass/compass cli too).

Ideally we'd like someone who is open to developing a working relationship with us, though we're open to some contract work to start with, to see if it's a good fit.

Anybody down in SW Florida?

I recently moved to Naples from Orlando to live closer to family. I'm wondering if there are any other Drupal folks down this way? I thought maybe we could organize a get together or possibly a meetup if there are enough of us.

Let me know if you're down here and might be interested.
