What's that File (layout)?
There are many different ways to figure out what information the node table contains.
What's that Feature?
When your code executes a variable_get what actually happens is that Drupal inspects the $conf global array variable to see if it contains an index with the variable name. It does NOT actually query the variable table.
I was writing an extremely simple custom module (for a D6 site) to make use of hook_block. Every time I enabled the module the blocks no longer displayed on the pages. Since it had been a long time since I had done any work in D6, I figured there must be something I was overlooking in how I wrote the function. If I disabled the module (or even just commented out the hook_block) function then the blocks reappeared. So, I spent a fair amount of time looking over how I had written the hook. But, I couldn't see anything wrong with it.
I always stumble around looking for the link. So, I am saving it here for easy access.
I am running a Drupal 7 site on AWS with an EC2 micro instance and RDS on Ubuntu 12.04. When I navigated to the URL patterns for Pathauto
admin/config/search/path/patterns I was getting a nasty white screen with an error along the lines of
PDOException: SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 2006 MySQL server has gone away. As it turns out, this is not the fault of Pathauto. The solution to this problem was to increase the
max_allowed_packet value in the mysql server configuration.
From the Rules project page:
The rules module allows site administrators to define conditionally executed actions based on occurring events (known as reactive or ECA rules). It's a replacement with more features for the trigger module in core[.]
I'm sorry to say that I have to admit defeat in the war against the spammers. I have been unable to take any automated measures to keep the site free from spam, and it has become too time consuming to keep deleting the spam comments.
If you wish to leave a comment on the site, you will need to request an account. Please accept my sincere apologies for this inconvenience. Rest assured that I am not trying to harvest email addresses so that I can spam people or sell those addresses to others.
Whenever I am surfing around on the internet, I like to examine the different web sites I come across. I open up FireBug and have a look at the HTML markup and the CSS. I check out the site with BuiltWith's FireFox plugin. Then I think about how I might build that site in Drupal. If it turns out that the site is already built in Drupal, I poke around looking to see what modules were used, whether they have disabled access to CHANGELOG.txt and what they have done with the /user page.
Many of you are probably already familiar with using the amazing Views Slideshow display plugin for Views. Out of the box it comes with different types of controls for the navigation. But, perhaps what you really want is to be able to add some other form of navigation, like those "dots" that you see in many slideshows. Here's how you do it:
It took me a long time when I first started using Drupal to conquer my fear of the Taxonomy module. With its technical sounding name, I figured you had to be a really smart advanced user to take advantage of something like that. The module description says "Enables the categorization of content." How am I supposed to know how to categorize my content? What if I do it wrong?
