Grand Rapids, MI

This group should probably have more organizers. See documentation on this recommendation.

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 second Monday of the month, at the Community Media Center: 1110 Wealthy Street (http://g.co/maps/5u89j), next to the Wealthy Theater. Our meetings involve presentations on technical topics, assistance with each others' projects, and social time for networking and relaxation.

Michiana Drupal User Group, introduce yourselves

For those of us stuck halfway between Chicago, Indianapolis, and Grand Rapids, this groups is for you.

My name is Brandon Morrison, and I've been a Michiana resident for about 3 years. I've been developing in Drupal for about 5-6 years, and I'm a co-maintainer of the Geofield and Openlayers modules. I've been a semi-regular attender of the Chicago and Indy groups for awhile now, but a few of us here in South Bend wanted to start a mini-group here in South Bend.

Drupal 7 Developer - Job Filled | SIL International

Employment type: 
Contract
Telecommute: 
Allowed

I need a developer for a straight-forward Drupal 7 site development. I do a lot in Drupal myself, but it is more of a hobby for me. Now I have a site that I put up and some data that needs to be set up on the site via Fields and Taxonomies. I believe it is fairly straightforward, but I lack the time. As far as I can tell, this can be done with out of the box solutions and no customizations beyond the standard tools and modules. In short, we have 1,800 nodes, and they will all have several children nodes. We need someone to import those into Drupal 7, then set up the Views and filters.

The Rapidian's second birthday!

Start: 
2011-09-15 16:30 - 18:30 America/Detroit

Fellow GRupalers--

The Rapidian's having its second birthday on Sept. 15, and I'd like to invite all of you to join us over at Wealthy Theatre's microcinema (1130 Wealthy SE). I think it'll probably be interesting to you theming nerds and maybe ecommerce, too (George and Ron will correct me if I'm wrong here). We'll be taking down The Rapidian, which is based on Drupal, to overhaul the site and relaunch it with a completely new design (all George--he's got some mad design prowess) as well as some additional features that are pretty nifty (Ron is a pretty rad developer and a little shy, in case you haven't met him). Some site architecture, too.

Please do come down. There will be either cake or cookies, maybe some punch and confetti. But all in all, a good time. Mingling starts at 4:30p, presentation at 5p and then time to bombard George and Ron shortly after.

September Meetup - Organic Groups

Start: 
2011-09-12 18:00 - 19:30 America/Detroit
Organizers: 

The September meetup is upon us! I'll be talking about the Organic Groups module (http://drupal.org/project/og). What it's for, why it can be useful, and how it can also be annoying.

We're meeting, as always, at the CMC offices at 1110 Wealthy Street (http://g.co/maps/5u89j).

And, of course, we'll head to Winchester for drinks, food, and conversation afterward.

Oh, and since dennypenny will be absent, she's provided us an icebreaker ahead of time: What memorable movie did you see this summer?

Hope to see many of you there!

Views Slideshow Hacking/Hook or Setting Changes?

Hey everyone,

I have been searching and have found no way to get views slideshow to display the way that would look best for my site. I feel like this is a big favor to post if anyone tries to mess with it or maybe/hopefully I am missing something obvious that one of you already is aware of? :)

Ubercart for subscription

OK, I see. I think Ubercart would work fine for this. Not sure you need a custom module.

Just sell the first annual subscription that includes one (or all three) of the first three reports (have the download files as "features" to the product) and give the user a particular role (e.g., "subscriber") when they complete the purchase. Then, provide the extra reports for sale on an a la carte basis but only available to those that have this role of "subscriber." You might have to use Taxonomy access control or some other access restriction to the product page node but I suspect there's a pretty straightforward way to do it.

Need a custom module developed

Hey everyone, I have a client that needs some custom Drupal development done, with a custom module. A lot of the code is written already, and I have copies of everything, but it's a little over my head. The site is using Ubercart, and they have a custom framing section and an API they need tied in together with their current site.

They are looking to stay local, and while I cannot do the work myself, I told them I would find someone who could. So, if you are looking for some extra work, know you're php pretty well, and want to tackle this, let me know, and we'll talk a little more.
