Why I care about the Drupal drama

There’s been a lot said and written about the most recent drama in the Drupal community, quite a few people have asked me why I care. This is hard to answer without sounding flippant in 140 characters, so I’ve taken the time to write another blog post about the topic. This one a little less angry and more reasoned than the first.

Shave a couple of stubborn of DIV-wrappers off your Drupal site

One of the more annoying things about theming Drupal sites is having to wade through the staggering amounts of wrapping <div> elements and containers. Some of these are are fairly easy to get rid of. Others require you to override core templates.

I recently found a clean way to get rid of a couple of those. These two were introduced in Drupal 7, and you will probably find them on almost all Drupal 7 sites – they look like this:

del.icio.us – can the Drupal community do better?

As you may know, Yahoo! is in trouble, and has decided to jettison the social bookmarking service del.icio.us (Delicious).

I am not a big delicious user anymore (actually, I deleted my account when Microsoft was trying to purchase Yahoo!), but this recent closing made me wonder if the Drupal community couldn’t do better...

One of the great strengths of Drupal is self-hosting, and a bookmarking service is not a complicated thing.


Relauching my blog on Drupal 7

More than a year ago, I was agitating for a move to Drupal 7 for all the blogging developers. As is rather obvious now, Drupal 7 was not in a state then for public websites. There was outstanding security issues, no upgrade path, lots of API changes to be made, etc.

However, since that has all been resolved now, I figured it was about time I moved my blog over. I have obviously been preparing for this for some time, as I will get back to in later blog posts.
