[DCMuc16] Can you smell the gingerbread and hot spiced wine? DrupalCamp Munich 2016 is coming

Hey Drupalistas!
We are just a few blinks away from the DrupalCamp Munich 2016 (31.11.-02.12.2016 CodeSprints @ Burda Media // 03.12.-04.12.2016 DrupalCamp @LMU Munich). As you know, this is our 2nd Camp after the great (and 1st) DrupalDevDays in 2010, and we think we will be great hosts again.

So, it's your part to submit your session prosposals until 14th of november and to be part of the special spirit of a camp with friends, Drupal, PHP, Symfony, beer, a lot of socializing, food, another beer, coffee, code sprints, very special welcome-bags, ...
We are thankful of our sponsors so we have a special prizing for students and WWCode. Please contact us for further information.
We look forward to seeing you at DrupalCamp Munich 2016 and to drinking a mug or two of "Gluhwein" or bavarian beer together.

Greetings from our Team

Solution for x 2 SSL's sitting on same architecture?

Hi

I was hoping someone might be able to help with an issue that I have.

Basically I want two different SSL's (as they belong to two different and independent companies) to sit on my AWS architecture but my architect is trying to tell me this is not possible, which I personally can't quite believe.

The current system has been working perfectly for around 6 months using the x 1 SSL cert, but now I want to use a 2nd SSL cert this is where the problem has raised its head.

Tour De Drupal [Ireland to Amsterdam via UK]

So some people are planning to cycle to Amsterdam for Drupalcon.
https://twitter.com/TourDeDrupal
It's perhaps a little far to cycle all the way from the West of Ireland to Amsterdam, but Gavin is going to give it a shot.
I'm going to cheat just a little, and do the trip with a combination of train and bike. I plan to make my way across England and Wales over 3 days, with a good few train sections thrown in for good measure. We'll meet up somewhere before the ferry at Harwich, and hopefully meet the bigger Tour De Drupal gang along the way too.

The Drupal way to add Div's and Javascript to D7

Hi

I was wondering if anyone could advise me the best way (the advised Drupal way) to add some html and javascript a SSL provider has passed me to pull in their Trust Seal to my site.

Ideally I'd like to add it as a Block but assumed if I pasted the entire contents into a block under 'Full HTML' that perhaps it might not be secure (or certainly might not be the Drupal advised way).

The code has been provided in two ways, either (A) altogether or (B) separated between Java Script and HTML.

SSL Certificates - Advice in buying?

I'm currently looking at buying a SSL certificate and attaching to one of my domains. The main reason (along with encryption) is to provide more peace-of-mind for users who will providing their personal data (we are also signed up to data protection).

Can anyone provide any advice as I'm totally new to this, especially in regards to:

  • green bar or not (and if not do you think the average Joe will understand the site is SSL)?
  • best companies in relation to price and service?

Taxonomy - what technically happens when you delete or change a taxonomy term

What actually happens to a content type's term reference field if you (1) edit/change a taxonomy term or (2) delete a term (considering the taxonomy is part of a live content type)?

I'm wondering as I'm considering giving users the ability to add to taxonomies if the term is not already available. If I'm correct I think if I allow them to add new terms in can add them to (A) a new taxonomy (which easily distinguishes the new terms to check) or (B) to the end of the existing taxonomy (which I ever I choose).

Ultimate Definitive World List? Regions, Cities, Towns - does anyone have one?

Hi

Does anyone out there have a definitive world list of all the countries, their regions, cities and towns etc that they might be able to pass to me?

I've been trying to create my own and its a hell of a task, and there's so much conflicting information.

A full definitive list would be the ideal, but failing that I would easily settle for:

  1. UK & Ireland
  2. United States
  3. Canada
  4. Australia
  5. New Zealand
  6. Germany
  7. Spain
  8. France
  9. Italy

Any help would be greatly appreciated as the Location module just doesn't appear to be definitive.

Thank you

Turn off Error Messages... but keep all others?

Is it possible just to turn-off error messages but show all other messages, particularly showing only the green system messages? The 'Error messages to display' does not appear to allow for this.

Most of you will probably thinking 'why do you need this', but unfortunately due to circumstances I have no other choice at this time but to do this.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Why is Views (on saving) spitting out a screen of garbage?

Could anyone provide any insight as to why views is spitting out garbage on saving content?

Basically it goes to a white page with loads of garbled text on it.

It appears to save the view but once it renders the garbage page I then have to re-navigate back to views (which is a major headache) to make any changes (and then again when I save its back to square one with garbled text).

See screenshot (which is only part of it).

Thank you
