Multiple forms on one page


I have been struggling with a forms issue that I thought maybe someone could help answer for me.

Basically I am trying to have several drupal forms laid out in one page, with one "Save" button, which will save all of the forms on the page at once. Each form is already assumed to edit an existing node, so I do not need to worry about the case where the user is creating a new set of nodes from the forms on the page.

Shoudl I use CCK for everthing?

This is a newbie question, so please forgive me if it's obvious (my copy of Pro Drupal Development doesn't cover it):

I am writing my first module. It needs to use a table with zip-codes and regions and other attributes to work. My first inclination is to add this table to Drupal. But I was asked if I could create a new content type and import these records as content (unpublished). That way if any

How to professionalize my workflow by adding Drush, CVS, SVN, etc?

I'm still coding in DreamWeaver (embarrassed). Have tried switching to other apps/methods, but always drift back to what I know and where I can stay productive. Is there documentation anywhere on how to move to a more professional workflow that covers integrating a real code editor (perhaps Eclipse) with Drush, CVS, SVN, Dig, etc? I can find snippets on each but can't get my head around linking the whole process together--at least not fast enough to also stay productive.

I feel a module coming on......

I'm building a site based on OG Panels, and one thing has got me befuddled:

I configured the node template for my group node in the panels dashboard, then created some panel pages on my group node:

So my Menu_local_tasks look like: tab1 , tab2, tab3

However when I click one of my posts the tabs "disappear"

Looking at my menu_router table: node/% has a page_callback of page_manager_node_view and a file entry of sites/all/modules/ctools/page_manager/plugins/tasks/

Best way to do requirements checking on CCK or profile fields

Hi everyone,

I have code popping up like this in a few of my modules ... basically I go through and check all of the hardcoded profile and CCK fields I use actually exist.

It seems like there could be a better way to do it, any ideas?

function example_requirements($phase) {
$requirements = array();

if ($phase === 'runtime') {

// Check for the profile category
$categories      = profile_categories();
$category_exists = FALSE;
foreach ($categories as $category) {
  if ($category['name'] === EXAMPLE_PROFILE_AFFILIATE_CATEGORY) {

Buttons on Nodes

I'm looking for a way to add a button to the end of a node that actually does something.

Rendering the button is easy:

function button_nodeapi(&$node, $op, $a3 = NULL, $a4 = NULL) {
  switch (
$op) {
$node->content['button'] = array(
'#type' => 'button',
'#value' => t('A Button!'),

The hard part is getting the button to DO something!
