Drupal Meetup - Field Collection Alternatives

Start: 
2014-05-12 18:00 - 19:00 America/Detroit
Organizers: 

Now that we've covered the Field Collection module, we're going to explore several of its alternatives. The Field Collection module is great for creating related entities that are only used in a single place. If a site needs to be able to use that entity in multiple places, though, you much use something other than a Field Collection. The main alternative we'll be covering is the Inline Entity Form module.

Preferred Responsive D7 base themes

Hey peoples,

I'm about to start working on a new theme for a client of mine. I do have some experience creating my own themes and modifying themes developed by others, however this will be my first attempt at creating a Responsive Drupal 7 theme.

The client is working with a designer who has sold them on a site that needs to work similar to this one: http://ffc.com/.

My question - what is the preferred base theme for a D7 Responsive site? I know there are a lot of base themes out there so I appreciate this groups suggestions for which ones are easier to start with.

a bit more on module building and forms

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I'm not even sure what to google here . . .

I have a module I built that's working. It's a block form that has two data items: say "amount" and "number."

These data are used as variables in some if/elseif code I have going that then sends the user to a particular page conditioned on the data inputs. Great.

But I also want to echo back those two pieces of data in that page--since these pages are views displays, I'd put the echo code in the header area of the view display using, I assume, some combination of HTML and PHP.

Get a free site built by University of Michigan grad students

Hello, everyone —

I am seeking clients for a class at the University of Michigan School of Information. Students in this class break into teams to build Drupal websites.

We have about 30 students in the class this winter, so we need 10 sites to create.

That’s where you come in.

Know anyone that needs a site (re)designed that would be a good candidate for our students?

Question about Pantheon

So as some of you know, I teach a course called "Writing for the Web." We have an intermediate and advanced section of this course for our Writing Majors (B.A. Writing).

Anyway, in the advanced section (which I teach next semester) I've been having students purchase shared hosting space (SITE5.com) and then we build from scratch. Even though this is complicated on the first day of class--imagine explaining to 20 undergrad humanities types how to use the wget command, distinguish between MySQL login, SITE5 login, user #1 login--it has, in the end, worked out well.
