triDUG

TriDUG LogoOur mission is to connect Drupal users in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, North Carolina and surrounding areas. We get together monthly for presentations, site demonstrations, and hack nights. Our goal is to help new Drupal users get up to speed, foster the development of existing Drupal designers and Developers, and contribute to the larger Drupal community. The Research Triangle has a big concentration of technical folks, universities, and start-ups and we want to expose as many people as possible to Drupal and all that it offers.

Propose a meeting topic here.
Find us on IRC at #drupal-nc and on Twitter at TriDUG

D7.21 , DCommerce 1.5, Rules 2.2, Address Field 1.0-beta3

Well I built my first module. It populates a field in Address Field with selectable NC counties. It works well, albeit my code is likely ugly (having never written a module and no real experience in coding).

what am I doing wrong now?

could someone shed some light on this? I want a background color on the entire background. However, I get a block of white at the bottom of the screen. I can add padding to get rid of it, but is that what I am supposed to be doing?

#page {
background: #E7CBBB;
padding: 0px 0px 400px 0px;
}

see the attached image.
When looking at it in Firebug or Chrome inspect, I can't select the area.

Open source all the cities

I thought some of you would be interested in this...and I'll mention that TriDUG gets a shout-out in the book :)

I've got some exciting news for you today! I've pretty much finished
my book. Oh wait, you've been writing a book you ask? Yes. I decided

The book is in the final stages of editing and I'm raising money to
get the first 500 copies published. Here's where you can help.

I've launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign (think Kickstarter,

TriDUG slowing down?

I haven't been seeing much traffic on the d.o. group page and it's been a couple months since there was a meetup of any kind. Is this an indication that interest in the group has waned?

Advice

I have a new non-profit client, a guild, that wants to upgrade their site to have multiple bloggers (300 members), various forms of e-commerce (member dues, show entries, online and brick & mortar museum store, and possibly member sales).

Currently they have one domain. If I can't convince them the museum should have its own domain, would OG be a good alternative to doing all this in one domain? I have only played with OG on my local dev. Thinking the groups would be the guild, the museum, and individual artists.

How well does Drupal commerce work with OG?
