Using the taxonomy term associated with a node as an argument in a view

How to in Views 2

Using a taxonomy term associated with a node as the argument in your block view. In the original Views module, the PHP Argument handling code was a collapsed fieldset that opened to reveal a textarea in which to input code. In Views 2 this is still necessary, unless we're missing out on some uber-advanced method, but harder to get to.

Agaric wants a "Save and Add New" button for content types

Agaric wanted and now has happily found a way to submit a node and get the create new content form immediately.

And there is a module to do that:

(I recall I wanted it as a button to "save and add new" – I still think that would be a superior user interface.)

Agaric wants Drupal to upload files with any or no extension and stop being a pain about it

Agaric is not alone: Allow any files to be uploaded or make "Permitted upload file extensions" a required field

The workaround of adding the file name to the "extension" list didn't work for us though for a file called "Capfile" (with no extension, of course).

Adding a .txt extension to the file for now. But may I say: annoying!

Alternate_login module does not provide a security benefit

Responding to Lauramba's Using Alternate Login Module to Protect Your Site (she doesn't have comments enabled, so in addition to e-mailing through her contact form I'm posting here for posterity).

Hi Laura,

I agree with your post in theory, as in that approach would be a good idea, but alternate_login module doesn't do that– it still allows people to log in with the regular username, so it actually increases the chances people can guess a correct login.

Configuring Global Redirect and Path Redirect

Download and place your modules in the sites/all/modules directory of your site using your chosen method. Agaric recommends Drush.
