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.

Has anyone used the Flickr Sync module?

Exploring some media options, and Flickr Sync looked like it might be a valid way of storing our photo media. https://drupal.org/project/flickrsync

Any opinions?

Can you suggest best practice for Main Menu organization?

Our existing website has a pretty clear menu structure:

Home
Tours
Animals
Education
...

Tours has a sub-menu of the different tours we offer, plus tour relevant items like Directions, Area Attractions, etc. So in the new site, if the viewer clicks on the Tours option in the menu (rather than clicking on one of the sub-menu items), I would like a page that lists the sub-menu links with a summary.

To do this, I created a view for a tour page that lists the node title and summary, and then used Views PHP module to sort the view by menu weight.

content nodes or views?

When you create content, you also create a page with that content.

Today I added a date field and scheduled it to repeat so that I could use it in a calendar. However, when I look at the content page - it displays all the repeat dates and I only want the start date displayed. I can't seem to find a way to fix this on the content page, but I think I might be able to do it in a view.

Is the page that's created for content the page you're intended to use on the site, or are you supposed to create a view for that content type?

Thanks Guys! Really made some progress today.

random people creating user accounts

So, last week all of a sudden I had a bunch of random people attempt to create accounts in my "non-live" site. When I had to rebuild the site, I'd forgotten to put it in maintenance mode.

But, since there shouldn't be any links out there pointing to this test site, I suspect the attempts at creating accounts are spammish. Is this normal? how best to handle?

thanks, Amanda

getting Media going

hey guys,

I was trying to get Media going so I could start playing with it, and I went to the Media project page, looked through the required modules and installed them individually, then installed the Media module. I went for the 7.x-2.0-alpha2 version because I'm in the Media group and noticed that a lot of people said they were using this version just fine.

I went to add a photo to my sample animal profile (content type), and after I clicked select I got this error:

Upgrading Drupal 7 core with Drush

OK, my co-working buddies, I've gotten Drush installed. Yay!

Looks like I'll probably use pm-update to update my Drupal core, but when I ran this, I got this message:

Command pm-update needs a higher bootstrap level to run - you will need to invoke drush from a [error]
more functional Drupal environment to run this command.
Command pm-update needs the following modules installed/enabled to run: update. [error]
The drush command 'pm-update' could not be executed. [error]
A Drupal installation directory could not be found
