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 - How to apply Module Patches

Are you a Drupal programmer or someone just starting out with Drupal? You may have come across modules that have issues with their code and you will see the maintainers or someone post up a "patch" for the problem you are experiencing. But how does one apply these Drupal patches?

It's such a treat when you come across tutorials like this. Youtube has no shortage of videos, but videos with value, well that's another story. Enjoy! Read more »

The Drupal Cumulus Module

I simply love Drupal's CMS. I love it so much that I use it for all the sites I design and maintain. It allows a person like me with a programming background and understanding of coding languages to put together a website relatively easy with little to no actually coding required. Granted, there is a huge learning curve to learning how to use Drupal, but that's simply because it is ridiculously powerful and can basically do anything.

But I love finding new modules to play around with. The one I just installed is called Cumulus, you can see it on the left side of this screen with a title of Popular Content. Basically it tags the vocabulary I created which I tag all my content on my site with keywords and then drupal calculates how many times these keywords appear and then Cumulus takes it and represents it visually in a 3d rotating space. Really cool if you ask me.

If your into creating things and tinkering around, and wouldn't mind throwing together a website, I definitely recommend diving into drupal and start with a basic site, and you will soon get consumed and just keep adding and adding onto your site. It's fun playing around and seeing what you can create!
