Horizontal instead of vertical formatting..


I am trying to create a simple photo gallery that will be exported as a feature and loaded onto a production site.. I have created a content type that has a multi image field for the photos.. When viewing the page the image thumbnails show as a long vertical list which is obviously not ideal..

Is there a quick simple way to get the thumbnails to line up horizontally instead of vertically, preferably without using a view?

How do I create a static block in code?


Hopefully someone can help me out here.. Firstly I am not a coder but I have a problem that needs code to be resolved..

I am creating a feature using "features" and I need to create a static block where the content is a simple HTML table.. Features doesn't export blocks so my plan is to add it in code to the .module file of the exported feature..

I haven't been able to find any code examples for a simple block to start from so if anyone can give me a pointer and perhaps a sample that would be great!!


EDIT: I am using Drupal 7 if that makes any difference..

Best deployment strategy with D7 ?

Hi all,

This may have been asked many times, I have already found quite a large number of posts out there, but found no answer to a simple question -> how can I easily deploy a new version of my site from dev / staging to production (without losing any single piece of user content) ?

I have seen Features, Deploy modules. Smart approaches like this one http://drupal.org/node/181128, well -- all kinds of things, I also know that deployment should be at the heart of D8 with the DOG initiative.

But yet, I am completely confused because as of today, I would like to be able to :

When is it NOT a good idea to use taxonomy?


I seem to be chasing my tail a little here trying to decide how to classify the content on something I am working on..

Its basically an issue register for managing a project.. I have created the content type with all the fields but now have to classify the issue based on its severity and likelihood each with 4 options from low to very high.. This gives a total of 16 options.. Eg "Low-Low","Low-Medium","Low-High" etc.. Views will then be used to query and sort the content..

Now this can be done in one of two ways..

  1. A taxonomy with the 16 options as terms..

filtering pdf file attachments

I have a Drupal 7 question that I can't seem to find a clear solution. I have a lot of pdf files that I want to add to our website. I want to be able to query/filter the pdf files based on year and department. I would want something like a drop down menu or radio buttons to accomplish this so the user can select to sort by year and/or department. I can't figure out how to add any taxonomy or association to the file to do so.

Do you know if this can be done or not? If you know of any books or tutorials that will help me, I would greatly appreciate any assistance.

Webform. Specifically, formatting the webform-mail-xx.tpl.php

I am using Webform to build an simple order form and with the help found @ http://1013.fi/cms/theming-drupal-web-forms and http://1013.fi/cms/interactive-drupal-web-forms-jquery-javascript-library I was able to get he form data entry stuff accomplished and looking presentable. However, to really refine the product (i.e. create a decent looking receipt), I need to be able to format the submitted data in email so that is looks at least a little like what the online version of the form looks like.

Introducing Myself and my somewhat naive ideas about education.

First and for all, I am completely new to Drupal, so forgive me if this post is not where it should be.

Let me introduce myself, I'm Jo, a engineering student beginning my final year at the university college.

Let me tell you how I've got here:
This year I have to write my thesis. And unlike the other students I wanted to try on something unusual. Not the imposed corporate thesis proposals but something that could maybe, in some minute way, benefit society more. Read the title, I like to be naive!
