Bug triage on Commons

I will try to help out in the Drupal Commons issue queue for the 7.x-3.x version on Thursday. Come and join me. The main objective of the bug triage is to narrow down the bug count and maybe fix some low-hanging fruit in the issue queue, so it will be easier for the main developers to get stuff done and focus on the most important stuff.


On Thursday from 10.30 CEST til around 14.30 CEST I will be working an online in #drupal-commons.

Brooming the Panels issue queue

I've been involved quite a lot lately in helping out with Panopoly - and it has just got to a 1.1 release because of great work @dsnopek, @mrfelton and @populist. Panopoly builds heavily on Panels, and I saw that they are getting close to releasing a 3.4-version

@japerry started to maintain panels, and he is working hard moving Panels forward, so everybody else can benefit from this great module.

Samsung Galaxy IIs

I was growing tired of my Samsung Galaxy sII which came with Android 2.3 being too slow after applying all upgrades to the Android system to reach 4.1. Therefore I wanted to root the phone and flash a new ROM on it.

No need to root your phone first

First, I thought I had to root the phone before starting. That was a big mistake, and I ended up paying for oneclickroot.com. Do not do that.

Just use cyanogenmod

Change database and password on an Aegir managed site

My server is setup using Barracuda, and therefore running Aegir as a backend. For unknown reasons, I've experienced a couple of times that my database has been lost when having cloned a site. That meant I had my dev-site intact, but the production site database was lost.

First I edited the credentials for the dev site in the backend, both for the settings.php and the drushrc.php.

Then I edited /sites/domain.dk/drushrc.php and changed it with the database credentials from the development site.

Setup a new PC computer

When getting a completely new Windows 7 computer, you will probably want some programs on it. You probably need an e-mail program, an officie suite, some security, some cloud storage and some media stuff.

Enter ninite.com

Start by going to the free ninite.com. Here you will get the possibility to choose from a long list of Windows programs. Choose the ones you want and start installing.

Other ideas?

Do you have other free services, that you would recommend when setting up a new Windows 7 PC?

Google Drive Doc Filter sandbox released

I needed to embed some Google Drive Presentations into some of my articles. However, I did not want to give the users full HTML access. Therefore, I created an input filter. I added the code to a sandbox on drupal.org.

This module provides an input filter to add a document from Gogle Drive anywhere input filters are accepted. You can choose to embed the document or link to the published document on Google Drive.
