Daily Dose of Drupal Episode #111

Learning module development in Drupal is not easy, but this Daily Dose of Drupal episode provides a very simple but practical module development video tutorial to use when learning about Drupal Module development. If you have a complex form on your Drupal websites, whether it is a Node creation form or perhaps even a webform, you may want to warn users before they navigate away from the page. This can help inform users that if they navigate away from the page before submitting the form, they may lose the contents of the form.
