Relating Nodes with Views

Evan — February 24th ’12

Just today we were struggling with a Views concept that was leaving a couple of us scratching our head -- how do we get a list of nodes that share a taxonomy term with another node? At first I thought this would be easy, just throw in a relationship and we'd be done! Unfortunately this was only partly true, the final solution was a little more complicated and involved a bit of trial and error.

Drupal Performance Tuning ++

Codi — January 27th ’12

Evan wrote a good article about the various high level options you have when looking at performing some lightweight drupal performance tuning. Good if you're just looking to optimize page load times and resource utilization on a server you may not have command line access to. What I'm going to share is the learning we've done over the course of many Drupal deployments in VPS and Dedicated hosting environments where we DO have access to some of the more low level options and settings made available with root or administrator access.

This is a quick post to go through some of the important factors to consider when applying security updates to your Drupal site.  It's not always as easy as just downloading the updates and applying them.  I've assembled a list of things we consider when we are updating our client sites.  For our clients that are reading this post, this is what we do for the $$ you pay us each month!

Before you update

My first ever Fuse blog post will focus on the Context module developed by the DC based Development Seed. With 29577 reported installs of the module, Context is quickly climbing the module ranks. It's already part of our base install for all sites we work on here at Fuse. 

This is Part 2 of a 2-part series examining two different ways to arbitrarily ordering a View. Part 1 can be found here.
