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.

Daily Dose of Drupal Episode #87

The Drupal 7 Fences Module is a lifesaver for the HTML purist in all of us. By default Drupal adds a lot of extra markup that is not always needed. The reasons Drupal adds the extra markup is to make sure it can work out of the box for as many different requirements as possible. However, in many cases this markup is not needed. This is where the Drupal Fences module comes in. This module not only lets you choose how to structure the markup around your Drupal 7 fields, it also comes with a wide variety of completely customizable field templates.

    The Drupal 7 Field Formatter Class module allows you to add classes to the display of individual fields that are output by Drupal using the Field API. This module is useful to help save you from writing as many lines of CSS as you can use this to implement common classes across multiple fields or even use it to differentiate the same field used across multiple content types. This is a flexible tool for those site builders or themers that need a little extra help when styling the display of their Drupal fields.
