How To Become A Drupal Ninja With The Lullabot DVD Series

Thu, 2009-08-13 08:19 -- dougvann

Seriously....
I run into people all the time who want to learn how to leverage the awesome power of Drupal. Often, they want to learn as much as they can AND as quickly as possible. There's NO reason why any one can't get exactly what they want out of Drupal. The abundance of resources is OVERWHELMING.
There is NO SHORTAGE of free screencasts and podcasts and tutorials and online recipes, etc. Most of them are good and many are even great! However...

Creating Browser Specific Drupal Template Pages

Tue, 2009-06-16 07:50 -- dougvann

I have a client who absolutely insists that the ie6 layout and mouseover issues must be resolved.
I did some of the usual tricks but found that I needed to change the HTML markup in order to really get it right.

My front page at www.genesisplasticswelding.com has some background transparent png files that swap on mouseover. I could NOT get these to work in ie6.

Day one of Drupal Camp WI

Fri, 2009-06-05 20:04 -- dougvann

Day one of DrupalCamp Wisconsin is over.
I've met some cool people. Some I knew from twitter, others I knew from groups.drupal.org.
The more I present the more I want to do it again. I love it when ppl have the AHA moment and things start clicking.
I particularly enjoy getting people up to speed so that when they hit the crazier sessions, they can get more out of them. I remember sitting through API and CCK and Views when I wasn't quite sure what a node was. I'm glad I hap people around to educate me. Now I can't wait to give back any chance I get.
