I recently ran across a problem of needing multiple Drupal Commerce add to cart buttons on a single page. Instead of trying to add a second add to cart form, I decided it would be easiest to create a custom link that could then be used to add products to the cart. This is useful if you need to create multiple add to cart links on the same page, or if you just need to create custom add to cart links to place in other areas of your Drupal Commerce website.

If you are familiar with me or with Codekarate.com, you know that one of the core goals is to help Drupal developers, designers, and site builders learn and improve their Drupal skills. Another one of my goals is to work to improve Drupal and the entire Drupal ecosystem. There is no better way to do that then to start getting more people involved with Drupal at a younger age.

Daily Dose of Drupal Episode #154

In this episode, we are taking a looksie at the Drupal 7 Multiblock module. This gem, allows you to create separate instances of your site blocks. This is a helpful tool when you want to display blocks in different regions of your site without having to create separate entities or blocks. Note, at this time of recording we are using the Drupal 7.x-1.1 version. Even though this isn't a recommend release, it seems to function properly.

The Drupal 7 Scheduler module can be used to easily publish or unpublish nodes as a specific time. This module can be used to automate the publish of content such as blog posts and can be used to ensure your posts are published at the time you want them to be published. Using this module, you could create multiple posts and schedule them to all published, this way you don't have a lot of content created at once.

The Commerce Stripe module integrates Stripe with the Drupal Commerce checkout and payment system. This is one of the easiest services to use when setting up payments for your ecommerce site built using Drupal Commerce.

Keep in mind you will need to download the Libraries module and the Stripe library in order to get this to work (I do not mention this in the video).
