Inline Form Errors

Drupal 8

There is currently a working group trying to figure out how to improve form errors in Drupal core. This includes inline form errors. If you are interested in the discussion and want to help out checkout the following threads:




NodeBolt adds a simple layer of protection to remind admins / editors that for some reason, this node should be handled with a little more care when it comes to editing. For the node ids specified by the settings page, NodeBolt adds an extra step when editing.


Spanish LOPD

File logger

File logger is a lightweight module that allows developers to configure a log file from within Drupal and dump variables to it from within a running Drupal app. Its primary function is to support debugging, and it avoids the awkwardness of dumping variables either to the console or to the watchdog table. Instead, using the unix tail command, a developer can easily view debugging output. This is particularly useful when dumping large data structures such as nodes, views, menus, etc.


  • Copy the module's directory to your modules directory and activate the module.
  • In Site configuration > File logging (admin/settings/flog on D6 or admin/config/development/flog on D7), specify the path
    to the log file(s) and the default log file name.
  • (Optionally) Configure the date string to be included with each logged variable.
  • Ensure that the user running the webserver has write permission on the file you specify.
    It may be simpler to create that file in advance using the unix command 'touch' as in
    'touch /var/log/drupal.log'. Then, set the permissions on the log file so it is writeable
    by the web server user, e.g. 'chmod 777 /var/log/drupal.log'.
  • Enable file logging. When disabled, no output is written. You'll probably want to disable
    file logging in a production environment.


Variable API

This module extends the Drupal core variable API that handles persistent variables. It implements a class that:

  • allows finding the directory where a library has been installed (branch 2.x for Drupal 6 and 7),
  • forces Drupal to re-build the menus (branch 2.x for Drupal 6 and 7),
  • allows obtaining the value of a persistent variable without passing the default value to each function call,
  • deletes multiple persistent variables,
  • and implements functions to centralize static PHP variables. The functions are a back port of drupal_static(), and drupal_static_reset() implemented in Drupal 7.

Installation notes

Install the module only if you are instructed to do so, or you are a developer and want to use the module.

If you are installing Variable API because it is a dependency of another module, you need to first install (and enable) Variable API, and then install (and enable) the other module. If the modules are enabled at the same time, you will get the error message class Vars not found. The same problem is actually present if you install a module that depends from the Variable API using Drush; in the moment I am writing this note, Drush will not download the Variable API module, with the consequence that you will get the error message class Vars not found.
