Drupal Dojo Session: Views 2 - Writing plugins, handlers, and supporting new tables.

Start: 
2010-07-27 12:30 - 13:30 America/New_York
Organizers: 
Event type: 
Online meeting (eg. IRC meeting)

Views is an incredibly powerful module if you know how to use it. If you know how to extend it, well, you're golden. But how do all of Views' moving parts fit together?

This session will attempt to explain the over-arching design of the Views 2 module, and how one goes about writing plugins, handlers, and supporting new tables. The goal will be to give attendees a sense of how Views is put together, and therefore how to extend it gracefully. There will be much reading of code.

Active trails between two different menus

What I have:
A primary menu (one level depth) at the top of the page.
Some secondary menus to the right, that changes depending on primary links (controlled via Visibility).

What I need:
Primary links to stay active when secondary links activated.

You can see the project I'm working on at nexos

I'm a graphic designer, trying to evolve to serious web design with Drupal, and think I accomplished the theme task very well, but this challenge of active trails...

Drupal Dojo session: Media for Drupal 6

Start: 
2010-07-06 12:30 America/New_York
Organizers: 
Event type: 
Online meeting (eg. IRC meeting)

Our clients want Drupal 7 Media right now? But they don't want to wait until Drupal 7? And they don't want to pay for the development necessary to make it happen? Don't worry (too much); there are alternatives.

Aaron Winborn discusses future-proof approaches to creating and using media in Drupal 6, giving a glimpse of what's just around the corner, and harnessing some of the power that's already available, even if it is currently a state of mashing together pieces that weren't necessarily made to work nicely with each other.

Help with OG and PHP Field

Alright... so I've got a view which identifies users with a sign-up for a workshop and executes a custom php snippet to subscribe them to a group which serves as the on-line classroom. I am using og_subscribe_user for this and it works great.

Now, when the workshop ends, I am going to remove them from the group and purge their contributions from the group. Browsing the CVS I find the og_unsubscribe_user function which looks like it work just like the og_subscribe_user function. Great! Except, the function doesn't exist in the latest stable release of OG.

Drupal Dojo sessions: Sustainable Theming with Fusion

2010-06-01 12:30 - 13:30 America/New_York
Organizers: 
Event type: 
Online meeting (eg. IRC meeting)

Don't theme yourself into a corner. We built Fusion after years of feedback from designers, site builders, clients, and developers. It's a powerful and supported base theme, with layout and style configuration options built in that you (or your clients) can control through Drupal's UI using the Skinr module. Based on a simplified 960px or fluid 12 or 16-column grid, you can easily define your own custom grid if needed.

Drupal Dojo session: Drupal Commerce - Under the hood of a major Drupal 7 contribution

Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

Drupal Commerce is a professional e-commerce solution for Drupal 7 and beyond. The core modules are lean and mean, enforcing strict development standards, a hard separation of underlying APIs from the default UI, code comments and documentation, and full test coverage.

Core features like Products and Orders take full advantage of D7's core Entity and Field systems. The modules leverage the popular Views and Rules modules to provide easily customizable user interfaces and order workflow automation.

New RHEL/CentOS Install Notes for Aegir Hosting System

Needing to use RHEL on a project forced me to write up these docs, as I spent days and days (even with druroot already having done CENTOS install months and months before) trying to get the install script to work. After many tries and just starting with CentOS on Rackspace Cloud (pretty standard stuff) I found that this was now the best way to go with all the recent changes and lack of consistent documentation on Aegir on CentOS/RHEL w/ the newest Drush and Drush_make changes.

I had pointed my domain name at mediatemple vps, so I simply setup an A record there to point to my Rackspace Instances IP. (If you have not checked out rackspace cloud vs. Amazon's "interesting" offerings you seriously should.) Then I went and added DNS entry on Rackspace clouds DNS tab. So I setup the hostname on the instance (ssh in) like:
