Henrik Sjökvist - Drupal /topic/drupal/feed en Spruce up your Drupal search box for Safari users (Updated for Drupal 6) /archive/2008/8/spruce-up-your-drupal-search-box-for-safari-users-updated-for-drupal-6 <p>My favourite browser Safari has support for a snazzy custom input field type called "search". This gives the field a rounded look and the ability to remember search history (amongst other things). The major drawback is of course that the HTML will no longer validate since this feature isn't part of the official spec.</p> <p>In order get around this problem I whipped up a jQuery snippet that dynamically changes the Drupal search input field to a Safari search field if the visitor uses Safari.</p> <p><a href="/archive/2008/8/spruce-up-your-drupal-search-box-for-safari-users-updated-for-drupal-6" target="_blank">read more</a></p> /archive/2008/8/spruce-up-your-drupal-search-box-for-safari-users-updated-for-drupal-6#comments Browsers Drupal JavaScript Usability Web Standards Fri, 29 Aug 2008 09:22:17 +0000 Henrik Sjökvist 13 at Duplicate id attributes for submit buttons in Drupal 5.x /archive/2008/7/duplicate-id-attributes-for-submit-buttons-in-drupal-5x <p>Drupal 5 doesn't generate unique id attributes for form submit buttons. This means that if there's both a login form and a search box on the same page they will both use the same <code>edit-submit</code> id causing the page to fail validation.</p> <p><a href="/archive/2008/7/duplicate-id-attributes-for-submit-buttons-in-drupal-5x" target="_blank">read more</a></p> /archive/2008/7/duplicate-id-attributes-for-submit-buttons-in-drupal-5x#comments CSS Drupal Web Standards Thu, 31 Jul 2008 17:03:10 +0000 Henrik Sjökvist 14 at edit-On Pro WYSYWYG module for Drupal (Updated) /archive/2008/6/edit-on-pro-wysywyg-module-for-drupal <p>I've put together <a href="http://drupal.org/project/editonpro/">a module</a> that integrates the <a href="http://www.realobjects.com/edit-on-Pro.435+M5d9bfab1bf7.0.html">edit-on Pro WYSIWYG editor</a> with Drupal. edit-on Pro is a full-featured cross-platform (Java) editor that outputs clean accessible XHTML. Unfortunately it isn't free/open source. <a href="http://www.realobjects.com/Pricing.564+M5d9bfab1bf7.0.html">Pricing</a> starts at €249 for a 10 seat license.</p> <p>There is still a fair bit of work to do. For instance the module currently lacks support for image uploads.</p> <p><a href="/archive/2008/6/edit-on-pro-wysywyg-module-for-drupal" target="_blank">read more</a></p> /archive/2008/6/edit-on-pro-wysywyg-module-for-drupal#comments Accessibility Drupal Mon, 09 Jun 2008 08:14:22 +0000 Henrik Sjökvist 12 at XStandard demo site now runs Drupal 6.0 /archive/2008/2/xstandard-demo-site-now-runs-drupal-60 <p>I just finished updating the <a href="http://xstandard.sixshooter.se">XStandard demo site</a> for Drupal to version 6, making it my first live Drupal 6 site. The only modules I use on it are <a href="http://drupal.org/project/xstandard">XStandard</a> (obviously), <a href="http://drupal.org/project/demo">Demonstration site (Sandbox)</a> and <a href="http://drupal.org/project/google_analytics">Google Analytics</a>, so it was as straightforward as it gets. It went pretty smoothly, despite my complete disregard for the upgrade instructions.</p> /archive/2008/2/xstandard-demo-site-now-runs-drupal-60#comments Drupal Sun, 24 Feb 2008 18:37:20 +0000 Henrik Sjökvist 11 at Drupal 6.0 is out! /archive/2008/2/drupal-60-is-out <p>Drupal 6.0 <a href="http://drupal.org/drupal-6.0">has been released</a>! No 6.x versions of <a href="http://drupal.org/project/views">Views</a> or <a href="http://drupal.org/project/cck">CCK</a> are out yet, so I'll have to hold off upgrading my sites a while longer.</p> <p>I'm very exited about the new built-in multilanguage support. The old i18n contrib module didn't always work right with other modules since many module authors didn't take it into account.</p> <p>I'm also looking forward to sinking my teeth into the improved theming system with the new <a href="http://drupal.org/project/devel">Theme Developer module</a>.</p> /archive/2008/2/drupal-60-is-out#comments Drupal Wed, 13 Feb 2008 16:16:32 +0000 Henrik Sjökvist 10 at XStandard module version 1.0 released /archive/2007/12/xstandard-module-version-10-released <p>I've finally decided to roll out version 1.0 of my <a href="http://drupal.org/project/xstandard">XStandard module for Drupal</a>.</p> <p>So why choose XStandard over FCKeditor or TinyMCE? Simply put, it produces valid markup. The pro version can actually filter material pasted from Word into semantic XHTML while retaining structure.

I've been using it for development for quite a while, but found it dog slow and I never got the GUI tools to work right under 10.5. I've been using <a href="http://www.lighttpd.net">lighttpd</a> on servers and decided to give it a go on my MacBook Pro. It runs superbly.</p> <p>This setup requires MacPorts which is a Linux style package management system. Everything you install through MacPorts is contained in the folder <code>/opt</code> and it doesn't tamper with your existing OS X installation.</p> <p><a href="/archive/2007/12/setting-up-a-drupal-development-environment-with-lighttpd-in-mac-os-x" target="_blank">read more</a></p> /archive/2007/12/setting-up-a-drupal-development-environment-with-lighttpd-in-mac-os-x#comments Drupal Hosting Sat, 15 Dec 2007 00:24:12 +0000 Henrik Sjökvist 8 at
