November meeting a success, no December meeting

For those who did not have the pleasure of seeing Dan talk about the new local Indymedia site, you missed a good meeting. And you'll have to wait until January to get your Drupal fix, as we're foregoing the December meeting.

See you in 2008.

CSS example files

I promised to post the example files from the CSS demonstration last month, and promptly forgot all about it. Late's better than never, right?

I'm not allowed to attach zip files to this post, so I'll keep this link active for a couple weeks.

A Sub-Group?

I am wondering if there other people in the Twin-Cities using Drupal, that would want to create sub-group for development of Drupal or more advanced topics for Drupal.

I really like the group we have going here. I think the range of Drupal expertise is a huge benefit, but I also feel like it is limiting at the same time. The difference between beginner CSS and writing Drupal Modules is huge.

My idea has spawned from this post (http://drupal.org/node/160239) and what others have said about other Drupal Users Groups.

CSS Overview and Drupal Q&A

Start: 
2007-07-26 05:00 - 06:30 Etc/GMT-5

It's not that CSS is such a simple topic that it will only take 30 minutes to cover in depth - It's that there's so much to cover that I'm not sure how to tackle it without rambling from subject to subject. I'll talk about critically important concepts like specificity, inheritance and the box model and such, but after that, what's the best use of our time? Any suggestions on how to focus this discussion would be appreciated.

If I understood correctly, for the rest of the session we'll attempt to tangibly tackle user's Drupal questions by starting with a fresh, local installation.

New view plugin module: Node Cloud

Hello,

I wanted to announce a new module, just released today: Node Cloud. If you're familiar with tag clouds this module should look pretty familiar: it themes the output of a view like a tag cloud.

The primary ordering of the view is from the first sort. The sizing of each item is based on the second sort order. This makes the plugin very versatile for making clouds of popular content, highly rated content (say with the voting api), highly commented content, etc.

Theming Demo Help

Hey everyone. I have agreed to give a Theming Demo at the next Twin Cities Drupal User Group. The problem is that I do not own a laptop. So if someone could possibly help me out here, that would be great. Preferably I would like:

Laptop with a local webserver and a fresh install of Drupal. A simple, but good text editor, and Firefox.

OR I can set up my own fresh install of Drupal and use someone's laptop for the demo. I would need a good ftp client, good text editor, and Firefox.

Any takers? Thanks ahead of time.

It looks like I volunteered to give a demo on creating a Drupal theme from scratch. Here are some initial things I have in my head:

I will also assume you do not know PHP but can understand it's basic usage in web development. http://www.php.net
