Organic Groups in Drupal 7 does not use entity IDs as group IDs

Update: Here is the code we currently use, abstracted into a helper function with lots of comments but it's really just two lines:

Installing Etherpad Light on Debian

It's actually called Etherpad Lite but i hate that spelling.

This will be a copy-paste of http://mclear.co.uk/2011/08/01/install-etherpad-lite-on-ubuntu/ except for a few things taken from https://github.com/Pita/etherpad-lite#readme and workarounds when things do not go as planned.

Modules in consideration for the SDL project

Available role: A module for Drupal to allow users to choose which roles permitted to them they currently use

When developing a site it is well known you need to log in as different users to properly test functionality, or you will always be surprised by incorrectly-configured permissions.

However, it should be much easier to test out working as a given user role by anyone with these privileges.

Installing Compass and Sass with Susy on Ubuntu

As long as gem and rvm are already set up (see RubyGems and RVM on Ubuntu), all you need to do is:

gem install compass
gem install compass-susy-plugin
gem install stitch

Most recently on Ubuntu: This worked with sudo.

Background

Main Gotcha:
compass-susy-plugin does not show on gem list

Deleting Drupal Fields Programmatically (So As to Change Field Type with Features)

In brief: The code at the bottom of this post deletes the named fields. If you are changing the field type for one or more fields, put it in an update hook for a feature module and run update.php before running features revert, your feature will happily rebuild the fields with their new settings. This destroys data.

FieldException: Cannot change an existing field's type. in field_update_field() (line 230 of /home/ben/code/sdl/web/modules/field/field.crud.inc).

Administrator Experience for Drupal: Skip Confirmation for Deletion of Less Important Items

CS would like a module that lets you set in which places you want to be required to confirm delete and which places should just let you delete.

  • Menu items-- don't make me confirm
  • Content-- make sure

I don't think the confirm form is necessary to present cross-site scripting-- that's in the token with the form (or delete link— that might be an easy way to do this, change one or the other to links so you can visually see if you're getting a confirmation or not, and maybe think twice faster).

How to create a Feature without the initial download through the UI

If you hate downloading and unzipping the initial feature you create as much as i do, because you haven't bothered with that foolishness since Drush, this post is for you.

This is the minimal information needed (from my experimentation) for Features to recognize your module as a Features module. Then you can add variables and other features through the UI (or Drush), and drush fu feature_example to update your module code (where feature_example is the name of your feature) and fu stands for features-update.

In feature_example.info:
