Wrapping text into columns: no reasonable automatic method

So over at Driscoll Associates "Where We Operate" modular home pages we wanted that long list of local Massachusetts counties and towns to wrap into columns.

It turns out there's not reasonable way to make them wrap:

Maybe CSS will get there soon.

Why is this stupid grey line in my theme?

Is there an annoying grey line in your Drupal theme, #ccc in color and 1px thick? Just a little gray border of completely unknown origin, seemingly caused by your header table or your body content table?

Would you like it to go away? Are you trying to remove it from a bluemarine theme you want to customize?

Is the line beginning to drive you insane trying to get rid of it?

Have you run out of HTML elements and CSS selectors to override?

If you searched for "die #cccccc one pixel border line, die" then we can't imagine why else you're here.

Where to put the files directory

This is probably my all-time favorite conversation from the Drupal Documentation e-mail list.

Personally I consider it /bad practice/ to place 'files' under
'/sites/example.com/files'. This is a sure way to make your file links
dependent on your current domain name.

What I consider relatively better practice for a multisite's files is
to place them under '/files/s1' where 's1' is a general short
identifying name of the site which you can reuse elsewhere.

Agaric's ideal Version Control system

An SVN system to work locally in concert with Drupal CVS to make test sites and maintaining custom modules really easy.

  • Drupal core and contributed modules are kept up to date in example_test with cvs update (easy when the site has been set up with shell commands)
  • Share Tables Method

    Architecture of subdomains for different sections/departments sharing maximum number of tables
    http://drupal.org/node/54649

    consen - http://drupal.org/user/13462

    http://drupal.org/node/54649

    consen - http://drupal.org/user/13462
    http://consen.org/

    We have the Editorial sections sharing the tables
    $db_prefix = array(
    'default' => 'EXTRA_',
    'users' => '',
    'sessions' => '',
    'role' => '',
    'authmap' => '',
    'sequences' => '',
    );
    and the Drupal files in the subdomain extra.mainsite.org

    This same we have done for the administration section
    admin.mainsite.org
    and for the Office section
    office.mainsite.org

    Hello Dave,

    I'm going to be attempting to do pretty much exactly what you describe in "Drupal for my family" http://drupal.org/node/18023

    ...
    need this "single site with subsites with different blocks and themes" functionality.

    If you've kept up with the various new options (multidomain: http://drupal.org/project/multidomain settings.php hardcoded themes, split databases, Organic Groups, where Sections is at...) and you want to take another crack at a multi-section site, we can definitely find some money to avoid evaluating all that ourselves.

    Themes to Consider as starting points: Drupal 5

    5.0 Themes

    Allegedly Foundation theme is also 5.0, and "the best starting place" according to someone at DrupalCampNYC...

    (+ means included in Agaric's site recipe generator)

    (Drupal 5 as of 2007 January 29)

    To Consider:
    http://drupal.org/project/biblio
    It closely follows the EndNote model: http://www.endnote.com/
    * EndNote and bibTex import / export
    * keyword filtering
    * selectable output styles (original, CSE, APA and IEEE so far)
    * admin selectable "base" URL (you can change "/biblio" to anything you want)
    * full text entry field; you can now enter the full text of the publication (Text or HTML) and it will be displayed when the user views the biblio node.

    See http://liiscience.org/biblio for a live example.

    SSH on a nonstandard port

    After trying a lot of stuff that didn't work, like ssh -2 username@example.com:6927 or #6927 and many possible and impossible permutation, and after some internet searching, Agaric Design cobbled together this for your benifit. For those of you on Windows, I think you can just type in the port number. For those of you on Linux or Unix-like systems, this may help. It is tested and approved on Mac OS X:

    Edit or create a plain text config (no extension) file in the .ssh (invisible system) folder in you ~/Username/ directory.
