How Trellon gave back to Drupal (May 2008)

As a well-known Drupal shop, Trellon continually strives to contribute back to the Drupal community in any way it can. Sometimes, we're just too busy, other times, we're just plain ol' lazy and, more often than not, Morbus is complaining about quality or phenoptosis or whatever. By keeping track of what we give back, however, we hope to more clearly see how much we are, or aren't, helping Drupal help ourselves.

This month saw the release of a number of modules:

Teleport 1.0 Released

I've just released version 1.0 of the Teleport module. Teleport is "QuickSilver for Drupal", but if you don't know what QuickSilver is, that's not going to tell you much. Basically, Teleport lets you quickly jump to a page on your Drupal site by typing in part of the path or the title. It saves me a ton of time when jumping around to administration pages that are nested two or three levels deep.

How Trellon gave back to Drupal (April 2008)

As a well-known Drupal shop, Trellon continually strives to contribute back to the Drupal community in any way it can. Sometimes, we're just too busy, other times, we're just plain ol' lazy and, more often than not, Morbus is complaining about quality or apoptosis or whatever. By keeping track of what we give back, however, we hope to more clearly see how much we are, or aren't, helping Drupal help ourselves.

This month saw the release of two modules:

Super-flexible forms in Drupal 5

It's common practice for theme function writers to give every div a class, so that it can be targetted by CSS. For us, this is especially important in forms, since our clients often ask us to lay out forms in complicated ways.

This was a problem in Drupal 5 (and earlier). Although form elements had ids, so specific elements could be accessed from Javascript and CSS, they are all encased in wrapper divs with class "form-item". This means there's no easy way to lay out a specific form item.
