Email confirmation of anonymous content through Rules and Flag

We regularly need to create workflows that enable anonymous users to add content to one of our Drupal sites. Often it is desirable to make anonymous users confirm the nodes they post by following a generated 'secret' link they have received by email.

Easy embed

Although the following code (a video embed code to be used by visitors of a video site) is discussed in the light of a MediaMosa related site, the implementation can easily be generalized to other video solutions.
It has been a pleasure to work with the MediaMosa framework, a tried and tested Dutch open source software solution enabling you to easily build a full featured, webservice oriented media management and distribution platform.

Parsing a taxonomy tree in Flash Actionscript 3

I often need to integrate Flash AS3 elements into Drupal projects. Something made very easy by the great AS3 Drupal Proxy and Drupal AMFServer module from the guys at DPDK. Of the structures that are returned by the default Services module, the taxonomy tree needs a little more processing than most.

Find and Replace Script

When moving a Drupal install from one server to the next you often need to replace paths within several database fields and tables. To make this chore a little easier I have started to use the following DB script (thanks, krazyworks).

Finding the vocabulary id in Drupal 7 with Drush

In Drupal 6 as you could go into the taxonomy section of the admin area and look at the vocabulary edit URL to find the numerical vocabulary id. In Drupal 7 the URL is no longer as verbose as it now shows the machine name of the vocabulary, for example admin/structure/taxonomy/my_vocabulary/edit.

Webform conditional answer options

For a Webform based survey site I needed to create questions offering a choice between some *conditionally shown* answers. Because I had very little time, I decided to make some quick & easy changes to the Webform template, instead of creating a custom module.

Drupal Staging - Site Update

In researching more streamlined options for our Aegir based dev/live cycle, I (re)discovered several takes on the staging problem: everything in code methodology, the deploy module, the site_update module, migraine, the patterns module and of course features.

Open Atrium Time Tracking

I have been on the lookout for a Drupal project management tool for quite some time. Open Atrium came close, but missed an easy to use, straightforward time-tracking tool. Happily, Fuse Interactive has risen to the challenge and made a great time tracking feature for Open Atrium available.

Aegir Single sign-on

On a recent project we had to retroactively enable a single sign-on for two existing Drupal sites. One a front end site for the general public, the other an intranet build on Open Atrium. Both were hosted on the same Apache server, administered by Aegir.
