Ever wanted to do a quick module or theme test without having to setup an entire drupal clean install locally?  Ever needed to setup a quick clean drupal core install just to show a couple of potential module functionalities for a colleague or brainstorming meeting?

If you need a super quick clean Drupal install ON THE FLY, simpletest.me is here to the rescue.


The BeautyTip module provides pop-up tooltips on elements which are setup for it.  There are multiple styles and positions for the pop-up, and you can control with great granularity which elements it should apply to.


In this tutorial, you'll learn how to create a simple custom Drupal module.  Our specific use-case will be to modify the default search page on our site.


This admin section is one of the smallest, so I will share a few extra configuration options and other bonus modules, along with all the basic defaults.

With the 'People' admin section, you can

  • Add a new user
  • Add/edit user roles
  • Configure site permissions, which are based on roles in Drupal (they are not on a per-user basis)

Maps are all the rage these days! Have you been wanting to create maps on your Drupal  website?  You may want to display office locations, locations for projects you've worked on or simply to show desirable businesses that are in your vicinity?  When you want to map multiple locations, provide views-based filtering or want to have custom map markers, embedding a Google map may simple not be enough.  You need the OpenLayers module which integrates beautifully with Views!

Read on!


People cite sooo many ways to check if a site is running Drupal or not.  Some are easy, but not entirely accurate and others are a little harder to do, but more accurate.  Rather than giving you an entirely full list (considering that you're probably already overwhelmed with the options online), let me give you a small subset with a commentary on which are more likely to be accurate.


I'm sure you already know Sass is the new way to do Css.  Use variables like you do in all your other programming languages and call your colors $medium-grey or $border-color.  That way if you want to change them later, you can just do it in one spot.  That and nesting and mixins and selector inheritance should be reason enough to have you convinced to make the switch.

And - setting up your Sass environment and making the move is not painful at all.  Here is how you can get setup to use Sass with a sass-ready drupal theme. 


I have seen so many questions online about how to get hierarchical taxonomy terms to display better as views filters or to content editors who have to work with them.

So my first 'cool module' blog will be to show you how to use this module!  It's simple, and unlike some of its predecessors works only with hierarchical terms.


Here are the step needed to show the count of nodes that are tagged with each term in a term list view!




Now that I have this wonderful new blog, I want to help my viewers by letting them know where they are in the hierarchy of my site when they're looking at a particular blog post.  By default, Drupal's breadcrumbs aren't quite as helpful as I'd like as every page has only a 'Home' breadcrumb at the top, since I'm not using the menu system, as much as taxonomy to organize my blog posts.

Here is how you can use the Custom breadcrumbs module to configure how you want your node types, paths, taxonomy and/or views to control the display of breadcrumbs on your site.
