Over the last week Twitter and Facebook users across New Zealand and the world, have been blacking out their avatars in protest of S92A, a change in New Zealand's copyright law that will require ISPs to disconnect any user accused of copyright infringement. No proof or evidence is required, just accusation. This is a terrible law for many reasons, which are well documented on CreativeFreedom.org.nz, and elsewhere.
The online protest stimulated and supported a physical protest in Wellington outside the Beehive (beehive.govt.nz is a Drupal website) (NZ's parliamentary buildings) last Thursday. It inspired others to follow-up with a website blackout event today, Monday 23 February. I already partially blacked out my blog last week, however this blackout will be more thorough than my website-decolouration or 'grey-out'.
I have created a Drupal module to help any Drupal websites owners quickly blackout their website, if they want to participate. Currently it's only a Drupal 6 module, however if anyone really wants it for their Drupal 5 website and doesn't have the technical skills to backport it, I may help out with this.Read more
At the University of Delaware, we are just getting started with Drupal as an officially supported resource, maybe for only 6 months or so. Having just barely more experience than most others at UD, I'm trying to help everyone get up to speed with the basics and offer suggestions how to enhance their sites from there.
Currently, the focus is on module selection. I've put together a set of modules that hopefully would satisfy most of UD's needs. We currently use Sakai as our LMS so Drupal's role is primarily for public websites for colleges, depts, programs, research centers, initiatives, faculty research groups, community sites, etc.... Drupal will also be used for internal collaboration sites.Read more
We are looking for someone to do some quick modifications to an existing Drupal deployment. Simple changes on the admin side for this site:
Drupal Proficiency: 7/10
Development/Markup Proficiency: 6/10 (mostly admin changes anyway, maybe some small PHP outside of Drupal)
Time Sensitivity: medium
We have other Drupal sites in development, or will need updates soon. Looking for a mid- to long-term relationship with a programmer.
In my multi-site setup, I want to install only "finished" releases (so: no dev version, no beta, etc.) to
So when I install a dev version to my multi-site
/sites/example.com/modules, and this module will get a release later, I want to move it to
Does this work without any problems? Anything to mind?
Would I need to update the module at the multi-site first, before deleting it and re-install it in
We're looking for a very skilled themer to aid us in developing a large scale social networking website for academics. There's also an opportunity to build up a long term relationship to work on several other websites we're developing.
Candidates must be very proficient in theming and have at least an intermediate understanding of custom module development. Being an independant player who doesn't need much guidance is a very important asset we're looking for.
In short, these are the requirements:
* Perfect understanding of Drupal 5's theming layer
Någon som vet någon modul som tillåter besökare (ej inloggad) att välja flera noder från exv. en sökresultatlista och att de visas i ett block?
Kan tänka mig att det hanteras via cookies eller sessions på något vis.
Funderar på att kika hur webbshopping-modulerna har löst det, men tänkte att det finns någon modul just för detta, som ni snubblat över.
I'm in the process of creating Eclipse module which will simplify drupal module creation.
For now it providing a wizard where you can choose module name, description and some hooks that needs to be implemented in this module.
I will provide it in a week or so.
If you're using eclipse for drupal development, fell free to post your wishes and feature requests.
P.S.: if such eclipse plugin already exists, let me know.
My book review pasted from Amazon.com. I reviewed the book for the publisher but that never guarantees a good review, so read on.
I must say I was asked to review this book, and I was very excited to do so. I thought it'd be good to comment on areas for people who aren't familiar with Drupal on a daily basis yet, and to give you some background, I was very excited to read this book. I needed a book that had the words "Drupal 6" and "module development" in it and luckily this book was titled exactly that and delivered. So, to newbies and non-newbies I offer the following review.
If you're impatient and don't want to read this review all the way, then just know this book must be read by each programmer who will be tinkering with Drupal, so yes, I recommend it. This book is not for people learning how to use modules, this is for people who plan to code and build their own modules. This book is not large, has great learning material, and brings tons of info down from Drupal's web site documentation into stress-free chapters. One entire chapter (Ch. 2) covers how to do an entire module from scratch and following chapters show how expand that module and build, and build, and really get to know important APIs that come with Drupal core.
In all honestly, I'm jealous that most new users get to read something as collected as this to learn from. If you read this book you'll basically catch up with content I took months, if not over a year to explore and read online. I had also held off heavy Drupal 6 development for myself until a book like this came out, so we're in the same boat.Read more
A new module for Drupal 6 I developed over a couple different weekends. Shows how many users you have, no biggie there, but it also shows a breakdown of registrations per month so you can see your good months. The report also includes counts of unauthorized (vs. registered) users with a percentage against total registered users, and there's a table showing popular email domains and their simple stats too.
