Daily Dose of Drupal Episode #207

Taking a content type and displaying it in a Drupal View is core to any Drupal website. If you are new to views, you can check out our Drupal views video. As you venture into views you will learn hundreds of ways to manipulate content to change the way the end user is able to interact with the content. To help enhance this, you can use the Views Isotope module. This module uses the jQuery isotope library to dynamically filter views content. As the title states, it’s pretty fancy.

In episode 173 you learn about how to make a simple countdown timer using the jQuery Countdown Timer module. This module, which uses jQuery, allows you to specify an end date which the countdown timer will countdown to. The countdown timer is available as a block and can be placed in any region that you desire for your website. Also, at this recording their was a minor bug that didn't allow for countdown dates to extend beyond 100 days (wouldn't display the third digit).

Daily Dose of Drupal Episode #94

In this Daily Dose of Drupal episode, we really go for a double dose as we look at two modules that have very similar functionality. We first look at the Drupal 7 Scroll to Top module and see how it can be used to create a nice button that scrolls to the top of the page using JavaScript. We then look at the Drupal 7 Back to Top module to see how it differs. These modules do different things but they have different settings/configuration options that make them unique.

jQuery form validation using JSON object and PHP

There are no shortage of examples or tutorials showing you how to validate a form using jQuery and PHP but not many utilize the JSON object the most efficient way. This tutorial will also use Twitter Bootstrap to provide the UI elements and HTML layout for the tutorial.

As a follow up and update to a post I wrote on Adding Javascript to your Drupal 6 module, I figured I would write a quick post on doing the same thing in Drupal 7.

scripts[] = MYMODULE.js

The next step is to create the MYMODULE.js file. The general template of the javascript file looks like:

I recently ran across a problem where I needed to handle user input in a textfield in real-time. What I needed to do in my situation was to perform an AJAX call to my Drupal site as the user was typing into a textfield (to see if that value was available in the database). The main problem was that there were a few easy options for doing this in JQuery, but most of them were not good enough. Here are two of the options I tried.
