My goal is to continue my work exploring the 960 grid system. I ‘mostly’ like the mark-up, and I really like the visual representation. The classes and id’s seem to fit my style. I have an awesome “Mothership” (morten), and developing some very cool subthemes for a client that will allow them some incredible flexibility and the ability to add new themes (colors, images, shapes) pretty quickly without losing the overall look and feel...

It seems like every time I set up a new site I eventually see the same screen... not the welcome screen, tho I do see that every time. I'm talking about the
The max_packets_allowed screen!
If you are finding this post, you probably need to find a way to fix it... you probably don't want me to cram in some lame images and funny words... so I'll get right to it... here's my secret to fixing it quick.
- Call Hosting Company
- Tell them to set my.cnf, remind them it's part of mysql
- Please find the section called [mysqld]

We all know that planning and as much time as possible in pre-production is extremely valuable to the result of a website. We also know that we have all had to cut corners, make do, and just power through… One of the barriers to pre-production can be the tools used to get the job done. This week I found a great tool, and used some existing Drupal stuff to get it dialed in for my purposes… and now I will share with you.
What Goes Where

o.k. it's not just for Drupal 6, but it makes the title sound so much better :)

I was hard at work on a recent website when I came across an interesting issue, you see I wanted to use a primary menu at the top as main navigation for the website. No dropdowns or anything fancy, just a smooth top horizontal navigation bar.
Additionally, I have a different menu (could one of several options) displayed along the right side based on the content being shown. Now I want my primary menu to display as 'active' when I am somewhere deep within the site on a page that the primary menu has no idea about. So, I want my primary navigation menu item to be active, even tho it has no idea what page I am on.

In an effort to continue adapting themes for Drupal. I came across several themes at Design Disease. This theme is GPL (no documentation, but it is listed as so in their site). I am asking for clearification to see if they will allow me to post it on Drupal.org, until then it will be available at ThemeThingee. It was created back in February of 2008. Now it is available for Drupal. The sidebars are really cool in blue, yellow, and pink. I also like the submit info (username, date posted).

After a long day of work and more work I decided to do a little more work... I was just getting started in a project for a new client with a Drupal site that was in development (almost done). I was given all of the access information, however; I was not able to access the site as user1.
Well, if I can't access the site as user1, then I'm pretty stuck.
The problem was not the username that I was provided, I know this because I could see the name in the database table. It was the password, it wasn't the right one.

You don't have to re-invent the wheel. Sometime a theme, module, or core will provide you with some great little "additions" you can use to improve your site. In this example, I am going to share a little cut and paste I did to improve (IMHO) my webform.
Here's how it looked before
You'll notice that I used the header section of the webform to let the end user know that the form has some required fields, and that those fields are designated by the star (asterisk).
Good WebDeveloper :)
Let's take this one more step.

I spent quite a bit of time trying to get that Flickr to work with my blog. It was a nightmare... Hopefully someone will come across this blog and find their solution much, much faster than I did.
The user id
I got all kinds of errors no matter what I tired.
error 1 user not found error 2 undefined or something unknown...
