Drush Snippets: Menu Trace

Random snippet of the day, find out what modules are involved in building out a given menu route definition. When you type a URI into your browser, Drupal’s menu routing system connects that to your page content by processing the path into instructions for how to build the page.

Release: Organic Groups 6.x-2.2

I have just tagged the first OG6 release since March of 2010.

We have a fine assortment of changes (see the changelog), ranging across:

  • New Hook API Documentation
  • Views integration improvements
  • Localization improvements
  • Miscellaneous areas of moderate interest

This release locks in some changes, clarifies the status of Notifications (sticking with the 2.x line for now), and sets up OG6 for a stable position to start looking at what should happen next. I’ve posted a sort of maintainer’s philosophy position on how I see OG6 moving forward, you can read it at the d.g.o address of Organic Groups. What does all that translate into for my next steps?

Well, aside from a few clear cases, it’s still very much up to the community. I’m going to focus on a few good patches, and see if I can help the groups.drupal.org-related issues, performance, and the Weirdness subqueues. I’m hoping to have enough cool stuff pulled together to release 2.3 in honor of Drupalcon Denver.

D7 Upgrade Process: Backports to Close the Gap

The following post originally appeared on the GoingOn.com blog.

After more than a year of continuous investment in GoingOn’s Drupal 6 platform, the idea of upgrading to Drupal 7 is incredibly daunting. We have custom modules from form behaviors down to the access layer, we have features encapsulating hundreds of exported components, and an aggressive feature release schedule that does not set aside 6 months for a complete rewrite of the codebase just for a new version of Drupal. What to do?

We’ve been playing around with the idea of iterating our Drupal 6 platform toward Drupal 7. By pulling markup, design patterns, APIs, and architecture in Drupal 7 down into platform incrementally, we hope to shorten the final leap that will come when upgrading the entire system.

Node Form Dominos via Node Reference and Prepopulate

I like Prepopulate. I like to have that pseudo-RESTful way of preloading a form to minimize the amount of work a user has to do to get to the point of submitting a form. But I also like clean URLs. This post reviews in detail a technique to use a single prepopulated nodereference field to prepopulate a bunch of other fields based on that reference.

Single Group Login Redirect

Community.OA had a request for functionality that would redirect a user with a single group membership to that group’s homepage.

I packaged that functionality up as a Feature, so you can use it too. The oa_ prefix refers to the support for spaces_og/purl to generate a group URL.

Freelinking 1.9 will fix a number of bugs in 1.8, and smooth out the transition to FL3. Please go on over to the Freelinking homepage and download the dev version to try it out.

Freelinking 1.9 will be released this week.

Overriding Prepopulate: Do Not Use hook_form_FORM_ID_alter

> EDIT: As of Prepopulate 2.0, you cannot directly use hook_form_alter() anyway. See Node Form Dominos to learn about using #after_build to work with Prepopulated values. – 2010/09/09

The Prepopulate module works some great magic to preload forms from URL variables. But suppose you need some extra magic to modify the titles it puts in place?
