Moving a Node to a Different Menu Fails - Workaround

(Drupal 4.7) Sometimes moving the menu entry for a category, page (I think), or other node will fail when done from the "edit" tab on that node.

Don't panic.  Just go to administer/menu and edit the menu item from there.

It's worked every time for us so far, but we rather hope this bug will be fixed in Drupal 5.0.

Don't let this happen to you

A neighbor was telling me today about his web site. About how he can't change anything on it himself, and how he calls and calls the person who designed it to have a change made and his calls aren't even returned.

About how his direct request to learn how the web site works so that he can hire someone else if necessary did provoke a response, but he still hasn't been taught anything.

About how he has hired another person, a "virtual assistant," to deal with the web site and the person who made it.

Nice Menus drop down bug

A good, simple module for Drupal called Nice Menus has an annoying bug (supposedly not on all themes, but certainly on most of them): It frequently loses the focus when the mouse moves from the top-level menu to a child menu, causing the drop-down menu to disappear as the user goes to click on it.

Very annoying. (If you click and hold and move the mouse down, the second-level menu stays and you can then click on it. Not exactly a solution you can ask your users to do.)

Really, really close to Zing Auction launch

My e-mail:

* Beauty icon up.

* I must have broken something on the minimum starting bid setting when I did the special treatment for auction items. It was all working before. Bleh. I'll fix that.

Chandler and Drupal

Chandler is cross platform (Linux, Windows, Mac) Email, Information Management, and Collaboration software.

Open source free software arriving in time to help Agaric coordinate?

Chandler and Drupal integration (e.g., tags with taxonomy and some sort of coordination with the casetracker module) would be wonderful. Now's a great time to get Drupal people involved in guiding this, as Chandler is still in development and we could be sure it provides the hooks for Drupal to XML-RPC intelligently with it.

Save content and open a new create content form at same time

drupal save and create new post

Agaric was all set to make a new module called "Form Alter" to store this and all sorts of other fun, but thanks to a helpful response by Jenni S. to this post:

Save content, then create new, in one click?

The solution already exists, with more options:

Wordpress Sites to Convert to Drupal 5

Drak.net is on the PHP5 bandwagon, and we have another incentive to convert our (well, my) wordpress sites... by Memorial Day:

  • CockrillCorp.com (we can charge a couple hundred)
  • ShadowAppys.com (Cathy- also a paying client who still owes and will pay a couple hundred)
  • ReedLindsay.com (same deal, he wants to pay for an upgrade anyway)
  • DemCC.com (my brother, total deadbeat, but hey...)
  • ???

Amazing Things Zing Auction implementation detail fixes

Can anyone figure out why Category module is listing images associated with items (even though the images aren't in the category themselves)?

category module listing images
category module listing attached images of nodes drupal

Very, very strange. If you just click on the image node and edit it and save it, without changing anything, it stops being listed.

If you unpublish the image node, of course, you also get rid of it-- and can still see it in the picture.

But if you click
