 Here's another quick one,  We recently had a client report that they received a PCI violation because Drupal login forms do not feature the "autocomplete=off" attribute. This could be fixed with a custom template, or hacking core (!!!) but I whipped up this quick module to fix it instead, so that I wouldn't have to worry about issues integrating with client templates and could...

While planning for the Fort Bend Women's Center charity event that we sponsored, I was tossing ideas back and forth about how to handle the requests for pickup of donated goods for the thrift store. Webform does a great job of getting you halfway there, but the submissions aren't exposed to views and it doesn't give you access to the full featureset available to CCK. The mother of invention...

Here at eMUNICATIONS we love to play paintball. The game has a lot to offer: teamwork, adrenaline, exercise, and good old-fashioned sunlight (something usually alien to the eMUNICATIONS team). Naturally, we also like good quality websites (something usually alien to the paintball community). Most paintball websites I’ve come across are in a state of disrepair -- there’s usually little to no...

The biggest advantage of using Drupal for a high school website is the ability for the staff to make edits without any previous web building experience. However, this is also the biggest disadvantage.   The root of the problem is a lack of communication between editors. The goals of the site become lost in a sequence of delegation, design standards eventually go out the window and...
