1930 Domain Names Proposed to ICANN

This year ICANN offered businesses to proposed top level domain names to add to the existing top level domain names such as .com and .info. It received 1930 propositions. Some are regional such as .alsace and others are brands such as .google and others are broad names such as .cart and .art.

Now comes the work of choosing which names will indeed make it and which will be dropped. Plus some names such as .app were proposed by multiple companies and that means additional deliberations to know who will be awarded that TLDN.

The following table defines all the names. The table is nearly 500Kb ...

Insert Node Parameter: plain (6-1.2) [no content]

The plain keyword is used to avoid having the content being inserted put inside a tag. By default, the content is inserted inside a <span> or a <div> tag (<span> is used if the output does not include <div>, <p> and other such tags.)

Although one could overload the theme_InsertNode_node() theme function, it is at times practical to be able to use both methods.

The plain keyword does not otherwise generate any output.

This keyword primary use is for adding CCK parameters inside HTML code as proposed by one of our users (see here):

What are yellow pages good for?

Since I work a lot with the Internet, I often have people asking me whether the Yellow Pages are still useful...

The fact is, there are still many people using the Yellow Pages. Most advanced geek will use an online directory such as Yet, for certain things such as looking for a plumber, people still use the Yellow Pages.

So, how do I choose whether to have an ad in the Yellow Pages?

Simple! Take the latest Yellow Pages book you've received and look under your category and see what your competition does. If you have 1 or more full page advertiser, you bet that you have ...

Insert Node Parameter: booktree (6-1.2)

If you have books and you are using the booktree module, then you can insert a book tree in another node using the Insert node module with the booktree parameter.

The book tree will start with the specified node.

See Also: Insert Node Parameter: cck (6-1.2)


This parameter is an extension that should be part of the booktree module and not of the Insert Node. It made not be supported in future versions (3.x, D7...)

The Insert Node module verifies that the user has permission to view that book tree. If not, nothing is output which means that the tag may instead generate ...

Insert Node Parameter: cck (6-1.2)

The CCK parameter let you insert one of your CCK field and some node fields that cannot otherwise be added without being themed.

We support CCK fields and several special field names as follow.

Fields that appeared after version 6-1.2 have a version specified between parenthesis (i.e. 6-1.3).

cck=field_<name>; [requires CCK]

The CCK parameter must be followed by a field name. An empty name is likely to generate an error. The name of a field that does not exist is likely to generate nothing.

For instance, if you have a field named see_also, you would write:

Creating Turn Watcher — An Adventure Unto Itself

I think I'm like just about everyone else. I have the work 'me' and the play 'me'. Only difference is, the two once merged, and what was born was Turn Watcher.

I have played in D&D campaigns for many years, but never thought of running my own campaign until I got a very unusual present for my 40th birthday — the Dungeon Master's Guide. I started reading the book and was hooked. How fun I thought it would be to create encounters and intriguing situations and worlds for my players. It wasn't until I ran my first game that I realized that it would take more ...
