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:

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

HTTrack from the command line, some preliminary notes

Warning: None of the below was successfully used. We switched from a Mac to use an httrack GUI client.

From http://www.httrack.com/html/fcguide.html

Example:

httrack http://www.shoesizes.com/bob/ -O /tmp/shoesizes -N "%h%p/%n.%t"

Example:

httrack http://www.shoesizes.com/bob/ -O /tmp/shoesizes -N "%h%p/%n.%t"

[where] %h is http://www.shoesizes.com or ftp://ftp.shoesizes.com), %p stands for the pathname (e.g., /bob/), %n stands for the name of the file, and %t stands for type (file extension).

So I think I want to use this option:

-N "http://archive.example.org%p/%n.%t"

Get the value of a single associative array element

split array into key and value

I want to do what foreach does, but without the iteration, because I know I only have one value.

Oh, maybe each()?

Side note: It appears that Drupal coding standards (at least several examples in core) call for a lowercase, not capitalized, "as" in

foreach ($array as $key => $value) {
  ...
}

I ended up using <code>$key = key($single_element_assoc_array);

And then getting the value with $value = $single_element_assoc_array[$key];

Icon changing and editing in Mac OS X

You cannot drag and drop the icon to create it in Mac OS X Tiger

You have to click the upper representation of the icon in the "Get Info" pane and select Copy from the Edit menu (control click doesn't get you anything, either)

Domain Name Server caching on personal computers

Perusing Yahoo's rules for speeding up your web site, I came across the explanation to an interesting phenomenon.

On Dan's computer, it can take hours after the DNS resolves on our ISP, for his computer to recognize it! (I have to out my co-collective member at Agaric: He still uses Microsoft Windows.)

Yahoo explains:

Agaric Wants a way to replace a directory, have SVN just deal

So we're moving a client's site from a server that only had FTP, and find out the download wasn't complete after we already added the files to our SVN repository. So I thought, this is what Subversion does, right? You make local changes and it keeps track of them. Apparently, wrong. Not when it comes to replacing entire directories.

svn replace directory with another directory
.svn' containing working copy admin area is missing

Drupal Indymedia setup notes from Boston volunteer Developer

ekes' Hidden module for
hiding stories. Ekes is an Indymedia developer and involved with the
larger IMC Alternatives project. It's a pretty good module save for
one issue I'll explain in a second. Here's a quick rundown of all the
modules we're using though:

- Akismet
- Captcha
- CCK (along with calendar, date, link, imagefield, and email fields)
- Hidden
- Imagecache
- MySite (installed by not active)
- Notify
- Panels
- PathAuto
- Token
- Update Status
- Views
