User login


Agaric wants to set User pictures in post per content type

You can set authoring information display per content type, which takes the user picture with it, but this should be more configurable.

May tie in as far as code needed with something i apparently want so much i've posted it twice:

Show authors of all revisions on an article of content

Node Authors module: give multiple people edit rights to specific content based on userreference field

Add Book Module Style Next & Previous Links to non-book content


This should be the only time i do this on data, but the solution to this is in the Definitive Guide to Drupal 7– buy it! It's in the Other 90% chapter.


Adding next & previous links for node types within taxonomy terms (e.g. Image Galleries)

HTML5 placeholder via form alter

In a module OR a theme:

  * Use the HTML5 placeholder attribute to add help text to the search box.
function PROJECTNAME_form_search_block_form_alter(&$form, &$form_state) {
  $form['search_block_form']['#attributes']['placeholder'] = t('enter search terms');

Use of -p is not recommended: set file permissions explicitly

Stefan told me not to recommend scp -r ~/code/example

What is the s/findthis/replacewiththis syntax called?

what is the s/find/replace syntax called?


that's called search and replace with regular expressions

ed is the line editor used by vi [which includes this]
sed is just a stream version of ed

s is the substitution command.

Adding a remote calendar to Mozilla Thunderbird

Pretty easy, once you know where to look-- not under Calendar, but under File > New > Calendar

then On the Network and (probably) iCal/ICS.

Calendar, To Do tasks, and contact management Free Software

For contacts (address book), the current plan is still to find people to port Sbook to Linux to do at least as much as it currently does on Mac OS X.

Thunderbird/Sunbird are the fallback of choice for calendar (i've already uninstalled Evolution, it's that bad), but i don't know how to sync them except by actually entering all data in Google Calendar which is an ugh (but what i currently do).
