using webform

I like to use a single contact form that is routed to different expert emails depending on where the user comes from. I also need the form title and intro text needs to be customized. I am using the webform module.

Example: I have a link “talk to expert A” and a second link “talk to expert B”. Both links point to the same form at forms/generic_form.

link A points to forms/generic_form?
link B points to forms/generic_form?

In the form I have set a field “recipient” with a default value of %get[recipient]

aaron's picture Launched for the Sprint!

As a supplement to the Media group, I launched Drupal Media today to help with the ongoing Media sprint efforts. On its front page, you'll see a map to the next sprint (which is at Mansueto - 7 World Trade Ctr, New York, NY this Friday-Saturday, October 23-24, from 9-5). Tabs are also available for discussions (add your own), videos, and a feed to the Media module issue queue. Please give me any feedback or desired functionality that would be useful for the site. (Including long-term plans for the useful domain, contributed by the good folks at Development Seed.)

Drupal Media

Don't forget that you have to pre-register if you plan to come to the sprint, with your full name. Hope to see you there, or at #drupal-media in IRC!

How to theme categories on a node edit page?

I find it not so easy to theme categories on node edit pages. For example, if I have a group of input fields for location, where "City" is a CCK text field and "State" is a vocabulary, I don't know easy (standard Drupal) way to put "City" and "State" close by; there could be other vocabulary fields that are not related to location and should be placed apart from "State".

I have been resorting to kind of hacky approaches such as javascript to manipulate/relocate fields on client side, which works but I can't help feeling there must be a better way.

Monster Media Sprint!

2009-10-23 09:00 - 2009-10-24 17:00 America/New_York
Event type: 
User group meeting

Fellow Media Moguls,

We're shaking off the dust from the Media module, which was sadly neglected during the heady Summer of Code, where we got Stream Wrappers into core! I'm excited to meet now with my fellow Drupalistas, and get the module presentable for Drupal 7 (and Drupal 6, if anyone is interested in helping on that front).

How to create group home page w/ tabs like drupal dojo?

I'm trying in create a group homepage similar to the Drupal Dojo homepage at least with respect to the tabs (home, lessons, etc.) across the top. Somewhere along the line though I'm running into issues and I'm not sure if it is a path alias issue or a views issue. Here's what I've done so far.

I've created several group content types.

- Path Auto: groups/team/[title-raw]

- Path Auto: groups/committee/[title-raw]

Base off this alone I can list my groups and navigate to those URLs. I see the standard group home page with the river of news.

Fine tuning views

Okay so I have the views setup and everything looks perfect except the last row of images. It stacks them vertically. I would like it to stake the images horizontally within that row. I have it setup on the Fields Row Style and have inline checked for the image field. What seperator should be used to display these items one after another in this row? Any ideas would be great.

Examples of what Im talking about...
