Hi there,
I have latest openscholar + drupal 7.31 installation. I have the main site and 5 department sites and many more personal sites. I need to display a view generated block on the main site and not on the rest of the vsites. Currently view created block is appearing on the front page of the main site + front page of all the department and personal vsites. Can anyone provide some help on "How to display blocks on a specific vsite's front page but not on others" .

I have been stuck with this issue for a long time. Any help much appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Page Redirect in OpenScholar

Hi All,

I was wondering what other people use to redirect OpenScholar sites to other non-OpenScholar sites (say a faculty member leaves and they want this site to redirect to their new one).

Do you use a Drupal module to do this? We are running the latest OS version (3.15, Drupal 7).

Thanks in advance for your time and help.

[Solved] Default page doesn't accept relative URL

My OpenScholar site consists of a department site and subsites under it for lines of research, facilities and faculty, researchers and students.

Rather than have the site-url go to the standard OpenScholar login at http://site-url/home I wanted it to go to the department site which is at site-url/department.

It seemed from reading that what I wanted to do was change the default home page.

Admin/Configuration/System:Site-information has a section called Front Page which shows the default front page.

[Solved] Slow page loads related to database logging

I have been seen extremely slow page loads, on the order of 20 seconds for a simple front page.

In order to figure out what was going on I enabled the Query Log by navigating to Configuration/Development:DevelSettings and checking "Display query log" and below checking "Display page timer" and "Display memory usage." Of course, "Save Configuration."

I completed an upgrade to 3.12.1.

There were some warnings at the beginning of the process and many more at the end, some in the yellowish box with the yellow triangle with an exclamation mark and others in the pink box with a red hexagon with an X.

Should I be worried about these warnings (errors?)?
If so, are there known solutions?

The warnings (errors?):

Dear OS lovers,

I would like to upgrade from my 7.x-3.5.0 to 7.x-3.8.1. Drupal version is 7.22.

How is the easy way to do that?

I could extract the 7.x-3.8.1, upload to the server and run the upgrade.php script located on the drupal root dir?

Thank you very much.

PaxHeader folder in prebuilt packages

I tried to download 3.7.4 and 3.6.0 prebuilt packages from
But all the zip's included PaxHeader folder with duplicate files, maybe a virus? Or maybe something went wrong with prebuilt package creation?

This does not seem right to me or there is nothing to worry about?
