Suffering Drupal

Drupal is worse than many politicians. Says and promises a lot, but most of it does not work out of the box as they want to make you believe. Kind of the same way you do not really get "happy" when you drink coca cola, as they always claim in their sassy publicity.

Still trying videos - Drupalsux 002

Riccardo Wed, 06/01/2016 - 13:30
  1. Video thumbnail with link!!
    both for video-embed fields as videos within content (WYSIWYG)
    However video thumbnail frequently brings problems
    and including a link is simply impossible.
  2. Open in colorbox/lightbox
    if Drupal just were able to do the above,
    then colorbox/lightbox most surely should not be a problem


Feeds and stuff

Horrible... let's see if we can work it out:

Get list of taxonomy terms for current node through Views

Riccardo Sun, 15/03/2015 - 01:26

Wat ik eigenlijk wil is een blok waarin je de andere elementen kan zien van dit term-niveau,
of diepere term-niveaus vanaf deze node
misschien wel diepere menu-niveaus...

Probleem met GeoPHP? 

zoiets als: "Exception: Invalid GeoJSON: GeometryCollection with no component geometries a GeoJSON->objToGeometryCollection() "

Database abbreviations

Riccardo Mon, 09/03/2015 - 20:39

Since it seems no listing exists of the numerous and ununderstandable abbreviations used in the Drupal database I need to create this list just to know what I am looking at when I see nid, vid, gid, ref, lang, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.....

Loosing life on Drupal

Riccardo Mon, 09/03/2015 - 20:38

To have a precise follow up on how one looses life-time trying to get things working with Drupal is an impossible task. Besides the time you loose just trying to get things working, one would need double the time to also report it with all the search for solutions to the endless number of bugs, patches and other problems. It's like a giant rubik's cube where every time you fix one side/color, you find out you just messed up other two or three... "Fortunately" I don't seem to be the only one with this problem.

Leaflet maps & taxonomy icons

Riccardo Mon, 09/03/2015 - 20:35

Nou, ik hou er maar weer even mee op. Ben er duizelig van... en rugpijn!


Na twee of meer weken zinloos ploeteren met OpenLayers zonder énig resultaat, heb ik nou in elk geval een werkende kaart, dankzij Leaflet.
