The one that works like a folder where you click on the tab “Name” and it sorts alphabetically ascending or descending. Well i’ve got a tutorial for you.

    First create a view with the content type that you wish to have in it. In the image below I will be using Articles content type.

    Recently I migrated a drupal site that uses ms sql server to mysql.

    One of the conversions required me to convert all the tables from latin1_swedish_ci to utf8_general_ci character set.

    If you only want to convert a few tables, just execute the following sql statement.

    When working on larger projects, software architects and tech leads inevitably come across a few big hurdles in the project requirements for some not so “out of the box” functionality. They start asking themselves questions about the best way to approach these tasks:

    Have you ever been working on a site, and had your QA department or your client come back with issues because when logged in, the local tabs (view, edit, etc) distort the page layout? Or maybe there are a lot of pages that contain a lot of content, and it has become frustrating for site admins to have to scroll all the way back up to edit the page?

    Cheeky Monkey broke my Foundation cherry.  It’s been a pleasurable experience.

    Coming from frameworks like Zen Grids (+ Drupal Theme) and Susy2 Grids, I can appreciate (and need) some major control over the grids.  I have to say though, foundation does a bang up job of letting you control the ‘big stuff’ with ease, and still being able to get down into the nitty griddy(see what I did there?) -- and change what you like without too much fuss.

    Drupal, Drupal he’s our man.

    And then, oh yeah, there’s a Drupal theme for it!
