Drupal HowTo: Turn Off The "Read More" In Commerce Product Displays

As any regular producer of Drupal sites will know, be it a Developer, a Themer, an Administrator or all of the above, some times you want to be able to do something in Drupal which sounds simple, and in fact, IS very simple, but only when you know how. One of the many projects I\'m involved with is the heavy metal t-shirt and greetings cards online store Raging Horns (www.raginghorns.com) which is built in, yep, you guessed it, Drupal Commerce. Upon the advice of an excellent SEO friend of m....

A Drupalcamp London 2014 Roundup

Drupalcamp London 2014 was a thoroughly enjoyable experience which brought together something like 600 members of the Drupal community from the UK and indeed across Europe and a few welcome visitors from across the pond as well for three very informative and productive days about Drupal held at City University in Islington.

Returning To The Drupal Way

After three and a bit very successful and fun years with my previous company, last week I changed jobs.

For the last two years plus I\'ve worked in a demanding job where I\'ve been able to make use of large amounts of work put in by the Drupal com....

Drupa 6: Adding a relationship to a Custom Module via a CCK content field in Views 3

Recently, I've been taking my first plunge into the world of custom coding for Drupal Views, with version 3 of the views module and Drupal 6. I've been doing various things such as trying to expose a custom module's database table to views, and establish relationships between my custom table and existing parts of the site in question, and it is this aspect of views that I am going to focus on with this post. Usually, when setting up a relationship or a join in Views, you will be associating ....
