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. 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 might reschedule the meeting.

Nextspace address
101 Cooper St.
Santa Cruz, CA 95060

Best Californian companies

Hi.
I am thinking about moving into California(from Europe) and I am curious about which California based companies are the best ones to work for? I'm more interested in full service advertising afencies rather than just companies specialized on websites(pure Drupal shops). Also I'm more interested in companies with more than 50 employees(I've worked for small companies and want a change of environment).

Which companies would you recommend?

Why do you go to Drupal Camps?

I go to Drupal camps because I know that if I learn one new thing or meet one cool person who's willing to share their experiences with me, then it was a successful use of my time. Whatever I learn doesn't even have to be Drupal related, the point is I'm a wiser person for having immersed myself into the community. I organize Drupal camps because I want others to have that same opportunity, and it's rewarding for me to see people get together and share their brilliant ideas and work.

So, why do you go to Drupal Camps (big, small, local, international)?

Media Browser

I have some work that needs to be done around the Media Browser and I could either use some assistance, or direction from others experience on the site I am working on. I am happy to hire out the work if you know what you are doing and get it kicked back out quickly.

The Need:
The website adds content through a media browser that can search through directories as configured and then place them inline where needed. This media already exists and just needs to be grabbed and shown in the browser.

If you have ideas, please share.

Commerce content type product displays

Does anyone have experience creating new product types, products, line items, content types for commerce so that one can add a product?

I can use the commerce kickstart, but I need to implement commerce via module install on an existing site. I might even be able to use you for a short while on the project for some of the heavier pieces or to jump start the site.

Locked out of site . . .

Hi, I could use a little help. I just updated several modules on my site, along with the corresponding database updates & now I can't get back in. Everything went fine. No errors at all. With all the updates complete I could navigate throughout the site fine before I logged off. (I did update the modules without updating to the latest version of Drupal core for D7.)

Here is the error I'm getting:

Groups and Profile2 inquiry

I like to post locally first, before going global. ;^)

Here's the scenario:
Each user has their profile using Profile2. I have a OG group type where users of course are going to be admins. I need all group members to be able to view the group admin's profile.

Of course this to me seems basic and doable, but now been struggling with this for a few days now. Seemingly after reading some threads this is doable, and need to turn on Profile2 Group Access to make this work. Well, I have turned it on, and I see no changes to any cfg page anywhere.

May Santa Cruz Drupal User Group Meeting - Nextspace 7pm to 9pm (Tuesday May 7, 2013)

Start: 
2013-05-07 19:00 - 21:00 America/Los_Angeles
Event type: 
User group meeting

We will meet next month on Tuesday May 7th at 7pm at Nextspace.

I can't remember if we picked any topics at the last meeting ;) If we did, add a comment. Otherwise, I would like to go through my multilingual presentation slides (for DCPDX) with everyone to get feedback. I could do the presentation (45 minutes) or just walk through the slides. Might also be a good day to do a "round robin" to see what everyone is working on.

Thoughts?

Images and content

I am trying to work with some images in ckeditor wysiwyg and I can input the links but I am seeing them as anchors and the image-x-generic.png instead of images. I am using media browser...

Has anyone had experience with this?
Does anyone have a better solution for inlining images?

It appears that IMCE is having a bit of an issue with the file browser...

March meeting?

There has been little response to Carl's post about not being able to present tomorrow night.

Should we stay or should we go?

(I mean, stay with tomorrow night or go to the following Tuesday - probably not what the Clash were singing about.)

Anyway, if we're staying with tomorrow night, I can give a technical talk about using the Migrate module. I've been hot and heavy for the last couple weeks migrating a vBulletin forum to D7, and I can talk to the specifics of writing mapping code between them.
