To Do List Requirements

Requirements

The following are the requirements for the To Do List module.

To Do Items

The basic To Do List module offers you a new Node type and several User lists. There are no specific requirements for the main module to work other than Drupal Core.

Block

The Block module is mandatory, so in itself it is not a requirement.

In order to use the To Do List Block sub-module, you need the Core Block module.

How do I add my Facebook badge to my Blogger page?

When I created my blog on Blogger, I felt like it was a bit dry at first. So I looked into what to add in the column on the side... Since I like to make friends on Facebook, I thought that adding my badge would be a good idea.

It is quick to do and everyone can do it, really! So... first log in both Blogger and Facebook. In Facebook, go to your wall and click on Edit My Profile. The link is under your picture (and I hope you uploaded a photo! People want to see your face!!! Not your dog or your car.)

Discuss This! module Known Issues

The module works and is secure, however, there are problems difficult to circumvent. The following lists them. If you can help fixing some them, you'll be more than welcome!

Reordering the Comments on your Node

It is possible to reorder the node fields using the CCK module. If the Discuss This! comments do not appear exactly where you'd expect them to be, try using the the CCK module:

  1. Download the CCK module
  2. Install the CCK module
  3. Go to Administer » Content management » Content types
  4. Click on Manage content fields next to the node type you are ...

Insert Nodes used as a macro (6.x-1.2)

This module can be used to create macros (as pointed out by one of our user in a Drupal issue.)

The following steps show you how you can create a macro with the Insert Node module.

Create the Macro

First, create a node that is to become the macro. We will call this node macro. It is used without the Insert Node filter so the Insert Node tags do not get changed. This is important since we reference the main node (with the asterisk) and that reference would look like a recursive reference.

One idea is to use the macro as a PayPal button which gets set with parameters from another node. ...

Coming back at the right place when adding/editing/deleting Comments

It is now possible (See #418004: Comments included --> Back after reply) to have Drupal send you back to the page that inserts the node instead of the inserted node. Say you create node A and B. You include node A inside node B. You are looking at node B now. You decide to add a comment on node A (that you see from within node B.) Click on the Add new comment link, write the comment and click Save. At that point, you probably want to come back to node B instead of node A.

This feature is only necessary if you have the links at the bottom of the node and allow comments to show up.

Upgrading from version 1.0/1.1 to 1.2 or newer (or -dev) for Drupal 6.x users

I changed the name of the module back to InsertNode (although I did not want to, I did not want to jeopardize the Drupal 5 version... which would probably have been fine, but well...)

So, the newer version of the D6 module is again called InsertNode.

To upgrade you will want to keep the other version running until you get the new version as the replacement (although you can manage your site the way you'd like this procedure let you switch from the previous version to the new version without having to turn off your site for a little while.)

  1. Extract the new version, it adds InsertNode ...

InsertNode Installation

Decompress the module in your sites/all/modules folder.

Go to admin/build/modules (Admin » Site Building » Modules) and select the new module (under package named "Filters input".)

Go to admin/settings/filters (Admin » Site Configuration » Input formats) and select the Insert node filter1.

Make sure that the text areas using the [node:...] tag make use of one of the formats having this Insert node filter ...

  • 1. It is suggested that you create a new format if you are to use this filter only on a few pages. This way, you avoid wasting time on all pages.

InsertNode Compatibility (D5/D6)

Version 6.x added many new features (parameters, themes, etc.) to the module. However, the tags themselves remain backward compatible except for those two parameters:

  • collapsible
  • collapsed

The D5 version will insert the node content and make it collapsible or collapsed.

The D6 version inserts nothing on these parameters. It only makes the result collapsible or collapsed.

So if you are using D5 and want to keep the collapsible and collapsed look the same, you must add the body keyword as in:

[node:123 body collapsible]

[node:123 body collapsed]

Pop two values and one string, the first value is the new string size (at most that many characters) and the second value is the index (1 based) of the first character to start the copy from. The resulting string is pushed back on the stack.

Since version 5, the String object substr(), substring() or slice() functions should be used instead.
