Core Upgrade – 7.26 – 7.27

It has been a relatively long time for this update but it is finally here and should be installed as soon as possible. I followed the same procedure as always and have had no issues with the install.

Here is a link to the procedure:

Drupal Core Upgrade – 7.24

There is a new core upgrade out and it appears that there are some pretty hefty security fixes in this one so there is no time to lose.

I followed the same procedure for this one as all the rest and have had no issues at all.

Drupal Core Upgrade 7.20 to 7.21

Core update was released yesterday and since these generally address security issues, always a good idea to put it in place ASAP. Plus, then you won’t have to read all those warnings!

I have installed this on my sandbox and had no issues. I’m doing a reboot now and after checking the status report and a few of the features, i’ll install this on prod. I followed the same procedure as before. Here is the link. Will issue a Change Request when I am done.

Make note that I am on Centos 6.3 and the commands are specifically for this OS. BUYER BEWARE!

Drupal CSS, TPL Files and More

Drupal 7, CSS, TPL, PHP

These can trump all the rest of the files’ styles if the naming conventions are followed properly. This too-busy diagram also attempts to help me see how I deal with many colors, shapes and layering. I’m not a design guy and I don’t really care for design, nor am I any good at it. But, I have to learn some of it.

these are the files that I am particularly concerned with:
