CSS Reset Module for Drupal

Submitted by daniel on Wed, 02/18/2015 - 17:27

I have been using Drupal since 2009 and one of things that is impressive is how modular it is. The core Drupal build is very extensible and there are literally 100's of thousand's of contributed modules out there, many of them regularly updated and maintained by the very active open source Drupal community.

So it has taken me a while to come up with an idea for a Drupal module that no one else seems to have addressed, the idea of a 'CSS reset'.

I am in the process of migrating a Xoops site to Drupal and wanted to migrate the 'Web Links' module feature to my new Drupal based links directory.

One option that adds a field formatter for the link type field type is the pagepeeker module that integrates nicely with the link module. However for my purpose I wanted to avoid any additional costs or compromising my sites identity etc.

Touching on :hover states

Submitted by daniel on Thu, 11/28/2013 - 11:54

For years now web designers and developers have been utilising the :hover pseudo class to add life to their website or project. This is quite a common convention and is tradionally used to give hyperlinks diffferent states, but is not restricted to use just on hyperlinks (apart from say older browsers) .

 

The :hover selector is used to select elements when you mouse over them.

Tip: The :hover selector can be used on all elements, not only on links.

Speeding up Mac Mail

Submitted by daniel on Thu, 08/29/2013 - 10:48

I have been a Mac user for many years now, but have been less than pleased with Apple's Mail application recently due to the fact it takes so long to start up and then to find anything using its built in search. This has been a problem for me for some time, so I thought I would share a solution with those of you who might be experiencing similar issues.

 I am personally using Mac OS 10.7.5 (Lion) with Mail 5.3.

In 1998, Netscape released most of its code base for it popular Netscape Communicator browser suite under an open license. Around the same time, the Mozilla Organisation was formed, and they would later go on to release the first Mozilla Bowser, which would later surpass its predecessor Netscape in terms of  features, stability and standards compliance. This development continued under the AOL banner until 2003, when it was passed over to the newly formed not-for profit Mozilla Foundation.

Getting started with Git to manage your projects

Submitted by daniel on Mon, 02/18/2013 - 23:11

I have seen various people using Git on a daily basis from design agencies to software houses, all in slightly different ways. There are many reasons for using Git or even other version control systems especially where there are two or more people collaborating on any one project at the same time.
