Hi all:Read more
I want to be a Drupal ninja!
I have seen so many cool sites lately! There's one functionality set that has really caught my eye. I can't figure out how to do it, though. Can someone here give a hint? I've been through all the searches I can think of on Drupal.org and this is the first time I'm really asking, so I hope I give enough information! Here's a recent question verging on this: http://drupal.org/node/115058
What I'd like to do is display a view in a tab in a panel, and have the view be created by a stored argument that is autogenerated from the node ID.Read more
First, Thanks to everyone who works hard on drupal and everyone who is working hard on the dojo...im learning a lot.Read more
Contribution Module Rock Star Roundup! CCK, views, panels... oh my!
Today we will be seeing what we can do, creating rich content layouts with modules such as CCK, views, panels, and how to make use of some of the core modules, such as taxonomy. And as we shall see, you can use views within panels...
Comment: It would be helpful to have an abstract of what will be accomplished, or even a demo of the end results for those who get scared browsing half way down and seeing all that code.
First step is to install the relevant modules.Read more
Torrent for my high quality screencap of the Fourth Lesson is up!. The whole thing is 2:20 and about 180mb.
If you want to post a recode or other derivative, drop a link in the comments here and I'll flesh out the main node with more downloads.
Note: Video is compressing, will be up later tonight.
I'm back on to teach another Dojo Lesson this Sunday at 11am PST (2PM EST, 4PM Buenos Ares, 8PM Belgium/Hungary). Topic is TBA, but see the great wiki page Matt Koglin pulled together and let's start a comment thread on it.
I'm open to doing a more high-level beginner-friendly session after last week's dive into NodeAPI. I'm also open to doing a practical "how do I make a site do xyz" type lesson. Once it's decided I'll edit this event node to include the topic and we can collect pre-reading, etc, as per usual.
Two other points to note:
- Greggles has stepped up in the IRC room to lead a session on how to use CVS to manage an official Drupal project. Awesome! He will be leading Lesson #5 on Sunday the 27th. [edit: see and edit the lesson plan wiki]
- SamTressler has offered to set up a session at Drupal Camp NYC where the Dojo lesson will be projected and people can take part; an exciting real/virtual world crossover!
