If you have been around CodeKarate.com for awhile you have noticed that our branding has been, well inconsistent. In less than a year, we have managed to swap in and out three different logos. Each logo I suppose tells a story of Code Karate and played an important role in getting Code Karate to where it is today. As we embark on what we believe to be a turning point in Code Karate we wanted to share with you our old logos and show off our new logo.
If you have ever built a site using the entity reference module, then the Entity Reference View Widget module is a module that you should know about.

This module, which uses jQuery, allows you to specify an end date which the countdown timer will countdown to.

Using this module allows for various different layouts and styles to be called based on defined CSS rules.
The Drupal 7 Node Expire module allows you to use the power of the Rules module to perform actions on nodes at a specific point in time (when the node "expires"). This is useful for things such as unpublishing your content after a certain amount of time, or removing your content from the front page after it's been published for a week. You can also create rules actions to send an email at a specific time to serve as a reminder to do something related to a node on your Drupal site.
