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 we might reschedule or cancel the meeting but there will be a discussion or event here for it.

Vagrant and Drupal

My fancy homebrew + dnsmasq & virtual host custom mamp localdev didn't make it past my upgrade to Mavericks... not wanting to go back to MAMP I decided it was time to learn how to use Vagrant. I'm liking it! It's basically a wrapper for vmware or virtual box that makes it handy to spin up isolated local test environments that you can create and destroy at will.

Two useful Drupal related projects:

https://drupal.org/project/drush-vagrant
https://drupal.org/project/drush-hosts

https://github.com/dotless-de/vagrant-vbguest is handy if you're using virtualbox

Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

Hi folks, the December Santa Cruz DUG meeting will be all about patches! Did you know it is not a module maintainer's job to review patches? Neither did I until I found it buried on this page. It is in fact the community's responsibility's to review patches. According to the doc, "Patches need a positive review by at least two people other than the original author before being declared Reviewed and tested by the community" Trouble is, nobody reviews contrib patches, and it's a big problem.

Sub theme question* Update

Hi All
So I am trying to use Adaptivetheme as a sub theme. It is installed, but the block regions are not laying out as they should. Attached is a screenshot....everything is in one single column. I have followed the sub theme instructions per www.http://adaptivethemes.com/documentation/sub-theming

and I have dug around for issues like this, but no avail. I am SURE this is an operator error issue, I just am not sure what I missed. Any help is appreciated! Thanks :)

Site Warnings

Hi Everyone how have you been?

I was working on my site and trying to get content viewing permissions straightened out for my needs when I noticed this warning when trying to look at specific pieces of content:

Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in node_node_access()

The content is displayed as it should be, but the problem is that the warning is distracting and it displays file path....not wanting that

The code on that line is:

line 3083: function node_node_access($node, $op, $account) {

line 3084: $type = is_string($node) ? $node : $node->type;

When it's really ready™

There's an interesting post by XJM that came up on Drupal Planet this morning. In it, she discusses the state of critical bug levels in D8. The good news is that the core devs are holding their ground now and hopefully, the count will start to gradually reduce.

But what I found interesting was a remark she made in passing:

Paul suggested that some of us could port small contrib modules from D7 to D8. We could work on some of the Examples modules for this or whatever your favorite small D7 module is that you want to port.

September Meeting - more Drupal 8?

I'd like to direct everyone's attention to Cameron Eagan's post today. Cameron was one of our speakers last month on Drupal 8. This is an important and brave piece of writing that echoes the concerns that some of us have expressed (privately) about Drupal 8.
