Disable Textarea Resize


Newer browsers now include textarea resizing. This is a great feature, except when using something like Drupal that already has resize functionality built in. With a single CSS property applied to textareas, you can quickly disable the native textarea resizing of browsers:

textarea {
     resize: none;

Put that in your CSS and you're ready to go. No more native browser textarea resizing to screw with your other resizing handlers.

Hello hook_module_implements_alter


While working on a project for a client that was a perfect fit for the file_entity module, I came across an issue I didn't care for. Implementing hook_file_presave, the file_entity module assigns the file type based upon the first part of the mime type. This is a good thing technically, but my client's needs had to trump that. Instead they wanted two file types; image and files.

Drupal is about impossible to learn and configure!!!!

How many times do we hear that? It is by far the most common complaint that plagues Drupal.

Drupal 7 And Pager Elements


While working on updating my client support system to Drupal 7, I encountered an interesting problem. In the page to view tickets, I have a pager query running, utilizing the new Drupal database layer. The only problem was my pager wasn't showing. I started poking around and found a view in a block that has a mini-pager. That was causing my pages theme_pager to return the wrong element. There was one of two fixes I could take for this.

ANNOUNCING: Drupal 7 Ruble For Aptana Studio 3


Lately I have been growing tired of NetBeans. While the IDE still remains strong, the lack of support for the Drupal module has left me a little frustrated. I have been keeping it updated for the public when NetBeans releases new versions, but this is about the limit of my knowledge when it comes to NetBeans development knowledge.

I also found myself switching between NetBeans and Eclipse more and more. Eclipse offers far more features, like the Remote System Explorer, which I find an invaluable tool.
