drupal compact form

How to make drupal forms more compact

Do you ever need to make your form look compact or perhaps beautify it?

Drupal forms are ugly, as far as I can see. But drupal gives you some flexibility to change them. You can go through some theming part, install a module if you are with drupal 5, or go with javascript in your drupal 6.

If you are with me in drupal 6 and need it for a client, perhaps, then here is what I have done with javascript part. The steps are:

Lorem ipsum anyone

An intro to themes showcase and this one serves as a sticky:)

I have no idea who Richard McClintock is. But he was mentioned to be the first who discovered the old greek lorem ipsum passage from Cicero's De Finibus Bonorum et Malorum (On the Ends of Goods and Evils, or alternatively [About] The Purposes of Good and Evil ) by searching for citings of the rarely used word 'consectetur' in classical literature.

The original passage began: Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet, consectetur, adipisci velit (Translation: "Neither is there anyone who loves grief itself since it is grief and thus wants to obtain it").

Intense Debate supercharges WordPress commentsphere

intensedebate-automattic blog

Automattic, the company behind WordPress, has aquired Intense Debate (ID), a hosted commenting system based in Colorado yesterday.

ID with its cool features like threading, e-mail replies, reputation points, voting, and global profiles will be built directly into future versions of WordPress and Gravatar. It means better management, tracking, organization and easier comment flow with the holy grail of a universal OpenID. And with its comment importers and exporters feature, you are free from the fear of losing your comments database.

I couldn't find out how big is the money for the acquisition. Do you know? With 4,194,374 blogs hosted in WordPress.com alone, and still counting, along with more than a quarter of a million legitimate comments every day, I bet it is huge money.

Drupal on newspapers

Just wanted to share this slideshow video for those who are interested to see dozens of newspaper and journalism websites that use Drupal, the open source social publishing software that empowers individuals, teams, and communities to easily publish, manage and organize a wide variety of content on a website.

Lifestream on the block

Micro-blogging, nano-blogging, or pico-blogging whatever, changed the way we express and interact online. We don't need any more in-depth stories, err well we do sometimes. We have no more time for long story, most of the time yap. We want things simple and simplified. Yay!

Twitter comes with its pros and cons, facebook status, yonkly, sweetter, kronologger follows. Spoink goes a bit further with its multimedia micro-blogging service that enables you to podcast on any phone from anywhere as well as post audio, video, pictures and text via short message service (SMS), instant messaging (IM), email or via a web browser.
