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.

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 (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:

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.

Office Space Available

For anyone who might be interested in a small office space, there is one available on the East side of town next to mine. It's about 500 sq ft with its own bathroom and 3 parking spaces. (It's rare to find private offices of this size in SC.) The landlord is great. The rent is reasonable. Just let me know and I'll hook you up offline.

Views slideshow centering

I've been struggling on getting a views slideshow to output it's content in the center of a content area with little success. I'm running into some CSS that I can't figure out where to override.

When inspecting element, it is apart of the row class and is coming from "" and setting a position of absolute. I've done a search for this setting in all views, views slideshow, and pix reloaded theme (using) CSS and tpl files but with no luck on track it down.

Anybody have an idea what I'm missing or where else to look on how to override?

Thanks! :)
