Drupal Pop up Confirmation on Node Edit/Add Page

Use this module to help protect users from repeat work and losing time by warning them before they leave the node/edit page by accident. The Node Edit Protection module basically adds some simple javascript to alert the user that they are leaving a node edit or add page without hitting the submit button.

The common case for this is if the user accidentally hits the back button on their browser or accidentally closes the browser tab. If the user is currently adding or editing a node it will pop up a message informing the user that they are navigating away from the page and that any unsaved work will be lost.  Read more »

Drupal Web Design Series - Episode 6 - How to Setup your Mysql Database

This is episode 6 in our Drupal Web Design Series. The final preparation step to get your Drupal site live is to setup a Mysql database on your server. Every Drupal site requires at least one Mysql database. The Mysql database is where all your website data is stored. This is common for almost all current websites. The only time you wont need a database is if you have a static website. We will show you how to setup your Mysql database using the CPANEL server software. If you purchased a Godaddy plan, you will have this server software. If you used a different provider and they don't offer CPANEL, the process is similar, and you should be able to follow along with our tutorial. Enjoy!
