The Grand Rapids Drupal User Group (GRupal) is a collection of developers, designers, content managers, and businesspeople who use Drupal personally or professionally. We meet monthly, at 6PM on the first Monday of the month, at The Factory (38 Fulton S. West, Suite 400). Our meetings involve presentations on technical topics, assistance with each others' projects, and social time for networking and relaxation.
It’s 80 degrees and sunny in beautiful Ann Arbor, Michigan, and we are enjoying a tasty cold beverage while dreaming of sprints for Drupal 8 and the community that comes with them.
Make your plans to join us for the Drupal Midwest Developer Summit, August 19-21, on the University of Michigan campus, in Ann Arbor MI.Read more

After some discussion at our June meeting, the Grand Rapids Drupal User Group is adopting a new format and schedule for future meetings!
To avoid conflicts with some other popular meetups in the area, we will now be meeting on the first Monday of each month. Meetings will continue to take place at The Factory, but will begin earlier; we will plan on having an informal period from about 5:30 to 6:00 to socialize and help each other with specific challenges, followed by our scheduled presentation from 6:00 to 6:30 and more time after that for questions and collaboration as desired.Read more

Michigan Drupal returns with a summer Meetup on June 17th in Northville Michigan.

I have a form I created with an input function that looks like this:
$form['annual_income'] = array(
'#type' => 'textfield',
'#required' => TRUE,
'#title' => t("Your annual income"),
// Optional description
'#description' => t('Monthly income times 12'),
I want the user to be able to enter a number but not with commas separating the thousands. So 2330 but not 2,330.Read more
