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 7:00pm. 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.

Rules Guru needed

Hey all,

Well, as title suggests, I need some help with a complex rule. Here is the what I am trying to accomplish.

On the registration page for new users, I am using profile2, I have a select list, this select list is within a field collection. Based upon the selection from this select list the user might join, one, multiple, or no groups.

Similar questions have been asked over the web, but there seems to be no answers.

I believe I have the bulk of it at least to test a simple version of the rule, before creating a rule set.

Event -> After saving a new profile

Profile2 and creating Views

Hi All,
Having a hell of a time getting Profile 2 to display the fields I want.......Not familiar enough with Views I think. Got this error when trying to add relationships..

SQLSTATE[42000]: Syntax error or access violation: 1064 You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'LIKE '' ESCAPE '\') ))) subquery' at line 5

Any thoughts?

Start: 
2012-12-04 19:00 - 21:00 America/Los_Angeles

Hi all!

I just found out that the Silicon Valley Drupal User Group meeting is on December 4th:

http://www.meetup.com/DrupalGroup/events/92129612/

Since I'm doing a migration project right now, the topic:

Best Practices for Drupal: Migration (Data and Versions)

is of great interest to me.

Murias was going to be presenting for our December 4th meeting on slideshows, but I'd like to take a poll to see if there is any interest going over-the-hill for this meeting:

http://groups.drupal.org/node/270933

I have a mini-van if a lot of people need rides.

Dump/list of Drupal modules per project

I find it useful to scan the list of modules other people have used on a project. I can often find one or two new "gems" :) It is hard to find modules on drupal.org (though I've been recently trying to follow the new module releases on twitter). And, of course, we do find out the latest-greatest modules via Camps and Cons.

Anyway... this is an easy exercise. Go to each of your Drupal 7 projects and list out the modules and paste it in a comment... bonus points for telling a little about the project ;)

Foot in cast -> boredom; Omega responsive theme

My foot is still in the cast, so I have been mostly stuck at home on our 2nd floor. I've got a little project to do for a friend's firefighters union. I took some of my free time to do something I knew was possible but hadn't tried to do before.

Before I get into it, please don't tell me how ugly the site is. OTOH, please do feel free to give me some constructive feedback. I'm a programmer, not a graphic artist.

Permissions problem; advise sought

Friends, I'm encountering a permissions problem with a page I build using hook_menu and a custom form. I am not able to access it as an anonymous user. No permissions are required for the page. After hours of debugging, I am thinking it is a black hole permissions problem such as described here:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2017665/drupal-anonymous-user-permiss...

Wondered if anyone else has encountered this? Do you have any insights to offer me?

Thanks, and have a great weekend.

contractor needed

Hi, Everyone, that was a good meeting last night!

My client in San Francisco asked me today if I know any drupal developers willing to take on a project due in early Dec. They're a design/development agency.

They're a very professional company, working off requirements docs and wireframes and requiring pretty detailed reporting of hours on different tasks of the project.

Please contact me directly if interested.

October Santa Cruz Drupal User Group Meeting - Nextspace 7pm to 9pm (Tuesday Oct 2, 2012)

Start: 
2012-10-02 19:00 - 21:00 America/Los_Angeles
Organizers: 

I almost forgot to post this! We'll be meeting tomorrow night: October 2nd at 7pm at Nextspace.

What should we talk about? Anyone want to present? I'd love someone to demo using Omega+Delta+Context if anyone has done that as an alternative to Panels :) Or, if you know how to do "fancier" stuff with Display Suite (layout within a layout?).

Other topics welcome! Leave a comment...
