Posted on: October 30th, 2013 by admin 1 Comment

I recently had a need for users to be able to attach webforms to some node types to allow users to give feedback. Each webform could be attached to multiple nodes. When the webform data was submitted it needed to record which node it was attached to. This was easy enough by adding a hidden […]

If you find yourself wanting to style each tab individually, or attaching a certain JavaScript attributes to a particular tab this this code is very useful.

I keep finding myself writing functions like this again and again so putting up here for future reference as this just does what it says on the tin: 1 2 function array_to_table($array) { $out = ‘function array_to_table($array) { $out = ‘ ‘.PHP_EOL.”.PHP_EOL; $first = true; foreach($array as $row) { if($first) { $out .= ”.PHP_EOL; foreach($row […]

Drupal urlencode and Drupal urldecode

Posted on: February 7th, 2013 by admin No Comments

In Drupal when even I try to urlencode a url and pass it as an argument to a function then I get the error Not Found. It seems drupal does like the forward slashes, even if they are url encoded. To get round this I’ve written these two functions: 1 2 3 4 5 6 […]
