Mirror Drupal 7 nodes on a second Drupal 7 site

This should be dead simple, but it's not... yet.

Exporting Redirects to Webserver Rules the Awesome way

Interplay between Drupal and human progress

Prominent Drupalistas reflect on our community's social conscience:

Alex Urevick-Ackelsberg, Zivtech

Kristof Van Tomme, Pronovix

Drupal is unique in that it is both a tool for social activism and a
skill that enables people, regardless of their background to build up
a decent living in an awesome community.

Use different view mode based on theme


Both these are needed to work for teaser nodes in a view, at least:

Set up RubyGems and RVM on Ubuntu 11

This makes the gem command work:

sudo apt-get install rubygems1.8

But more is needed...

sudo apt-get install curl ruby

We already have Git installed; if you don't you may want to throw a git-core in there. (And if you already have curl installed, you can leave it out of the apt-get command-- or put it in, it will work either way.

Ubuntu Usability

  • The mouse should not disappear off the screen, ever. Makes it very hard to orient by zipping it to one corner, because it disappears. This is literally covered in usability 101 - buttons on the sides of a screen can get infinite size for free. (Note: current problems here may be the result of the dual monitor setup. #firstworldproblems)
  • Unity's start menu thing opens to cartoonishly big icons and font, but the default size for the rather important x (close) and expand buttons on the menu bar are miniscule.

Making DraggableViews work for Files (and any Entity) Not Just Nodes

If you make a Files view a draggable view, with an integer field and using the FieldAPI handler, everything looks great except for this error:

Undefined property stdClass::$nid in draggableviews_handler_fieldapi->get()

and the fact that it doesn't work at all.
