Santa Cruz

The Santa Cruz Drupal User's Group is looking to connect Drupal users in and around Santa Cruz, California.

We have a budding tech community in Santa Cruz. One factor in our tech growth is the use of Drupal at several local web shops, start-ups, and organizations. Drupal use at UC Santa Cruz is also growing and it's time we all got together to share knowledge and learn from each other.

We (almost always) meet on the first Tuesday of each month, at 7pm (see to discuss time). Meetings are free and held at NextSpace at 101 Cooper Street in downtown Santa Cruz. All are welcome. Ring the buzzer to get let into the building.

Note - If the meeting day falls on a holiday or during the winter holidays (e.g. January), then we will probably reschedule the meeting.

Nextspace address
101 Cooper St.
Santa Cruz, CA 95060

Question about Views Rewrite Results

Hi Everyone,

I have a question about a Views Rewrite Results issue. I am trying to rewrite a Field Collection ID field as a link and change it to reflect the Content:Title as the link. When I output the field as a link and fill in the Link Path with;

path to view/[item_id]

the link works fine, but of course the Field Collection Item ID is what is visible not the Title. So, I hunted around and found I should use an HTML link in the Text rewrite box. In the text I set;

I just took -- and passed -- the Acquia Certification Exam

I am at DrupalCon Austin, and on Wednesday, I noticed a room off to the side of the hubbub with a sign out front that read "Acquia Certification". I had heard about the program and had a certain amount of trepidation about it. Being a mostly homegrown industry, it can be difficult to have a feel for how sharp your skills are in comparison to others around you.

Branding is everything, right...?

Ubercart Anonymous checkout

Hi All,
Has anyone any experience with Ubercart anonymous checkout? I have it installed and it works, but the Drupal account verification email is sent along with the Ubercart one, so people get two emails regarding what to do next for login on your account. Of course he onetime link used in the Ddrupal email is invalid, because Ubercart logs the user straight in after checkout.
Any way just wondering how to shut off the Drupal email without affecting the normal create account workflow that I have set up (requiring administrator approval).

Thanks for any help

SFDUG - Don't Let Crappy Content Ruin Your New Site

2014-05-12 18:00 - 20:00 America/Los_Angeles

Come to New Relic to hear Nica Lorber Chapter Three's creative director share her tips for maintaining the quality of your new site after launch.
Nothing is worse than delivering a sparkling new site full of promise and seeing it ruined with crappy content. The best designed sites can be wrecked with blurry imagery, TLDR* copy, and incorrect use of styles.

In this session, I’ll cover factors that contribute to crappy content implementation and the steps we can take to avoid them. I will share deliverables that close the gap between site launch and maintenance.

I will cover:

    Calendar Repeat dates question

    HI Everyone,
    I am trying to find a way to simply and cleanly add a (completed) flag to individual repeating date. I have a calendar that sets tasks for repeated schedule and want a way to flag each date as complete. I am finding very little in my searches and wonder if anyone else has run across this functionality? Any leads will help. Date instance may be the solution, but I am not sure how I feel about breaking each date off into a separate node.

    Forum and Mailing List integration on D7?

    Does anyone have any experience with trying to integrate a Forum with a mailing list on Drupal? I have a possible project for a group that has a relatively unused 3rd party forum product on their website but generally talks over a private Yahoo Groups mailing list. Can these be integrated so that emails to the list end up on the forum (and are owned by the correct account, not glommed into a single account like anonymous), and forum postings go out to the email list?

    Kirby CMS

    There's always some interest in people getting outside the Drupal box and seeing what is out there... Kirby CMS might have some appeal for folks.

    It looks like it should have some of the appeal of the simplicity of Jekyll (all flat files), while having a UI for non-technical folks. I'm not sure when I'll have a chance to play around with it (it might have been a good solution for a small gig I was intending to use as an excuse to play around in Ghost with, though I ended up just going back to a familiar CMS).

    And it's in PHP. :p

    Help needed

    I've just joined this group.

    My company has 5 or so Drupal sites for different purposes, such as our website ( and for our end-user documentation (

    We have an occasional need for some custom PHP work to be done with modules and I'm looking for a local resource to help with this - our engineers are too busy with our core product. There's an immediate need to move some modules from version 6 to 7, and to help with the theme upgrade.

    If you're interested, please contact me.
