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.

Santa Cruz, CA 95060

I am hoping to reschedule an appointment to be to the group meeting at 7, but may not make it til 7:45. Sorry to ask a question and then be late :(

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! :)

June Santa Cruz Drupal User Group Meeting - Nextspace 7pm to 9pm (Tuesday June 5, 2012)

2012-06-05 19:00 - 21:00 America/Los_Angeles

Start thinking about the June Santa Cruz Drupal user group meeting on Tuesday June 5th, 7pm to 9pm...

Open to ideas as to what to talk about!

Kristen has been creating a Drupal 7 site with some fun modules including:

  • Media
  • Field Collection
  • Field Group
  • Bean

and could demo these and explain how they can make things better for your content editors.

(She had previously said she'd talk about Installation Profiles but they are such a pain that maybe another time... ;)

Other ideas? Anyone going to SVDUG tomorrow? Anyone going to Sac Camp?

D7 Lock out error

I was recently working in a D7 install trying to get some slideshow views to work when I got this error:

PDOException: SQLSTATE[28000] [1045] Access denied for user 'username'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in lock_may_be_available() (line 167 of /usr/home/dskaggs/www/7_eleven/drupal/includes/

Now I've looked up other info on it within its self and what it says is kinda disturbing as far as fixes go.
