Enabling RSS feeds of Apache Solr Search result pages

This extremely simple howto is intended for beginners.

  1. Install and enable the OpenSearch Feed module.
  2. That's it! To test, try a launching a search; an "XML" button will appear next to the "Search" button on all Apache Solr Search results pages.

Term Fields - define fields for taxonomy terms

This module enables you to add custom fields to the taxonomy terms of vocabularies via the web interface.
Summary - Why would I need 'term fields' ?
Drupal provides only title & description fields to terms & if you wish to have more fields to the terms forms you can make use of this module to define custom fields.

Flickr ImageField

Flickr Imagefield depends upon and enhances ImageField. You must first know how to use ImageField in order to use Flickr ImageField. It also uses the settings from the Flickr module so this module is required as well.

Preventing contact spam e-mails

It is important to note that Drupal core and it's Contact module do not provide any kind of spam prevention and could open up your site to lots of spam e-mail attempts if anonymous users can use the contact forms.

The good news is there are lots of good spam-prevention modules that easily integrate and protect the contact forms and other forms (like comments, nodes, etc).


Documentation, guide of easySlider module https://drupal.org/project/easySlider.


1) Place this module directory in your modules folder (this will usually be

2) Enable the module.

3) Make a view and set the type to List, you will need to add fields, at least add node title and node body.


- Don't group any fields, because this will make the whole list, just one list item, so make sure that on the config of the field you are using there isn't the group fields option enabled.

- Did you name your view easyslider read the project page carefuly its at the end (I will make it clearer)?

- Is your view a list type? Make sure the style of your view is set to list, and it has the ul option checked in the config.

- The arrows are hardcode in the css to: /sites/all/modules/easySlider/, so if you have the module in a default or site-specific folder, you won't see the arrows, just move the module to sites/all or change the CSS file in line 83, I will fix this so it works no matter where you install the module.

Views configuration example:

Only local images are allowed.

Howto: Node-based galleries with CCK and Views

Most Drupal-based Gallery solutions use Taxonomy to build sets of images; the resulting galleries are Taxonomy pages that can be easily maintained and expanded, but are not available to the node system: They can't be referenced from other nodes through a CCK node reference field, they can't be tagged, they don't accept comments and so on. Thus in many cases a node based photo gallery would be preferrable - if it would exist.

As usual, Drupal can solve this problem with a set of core and contributed modules. This Howto is a transcript of the screencast Photo galleries with Views Attach by Jeff Eaton, where Jeff demonstrates how to to create node-based galleries with CCK and Views. In the end, this is one of the most advanced approach to publish images with Drupal, so there are tons of reasons to educate the Drupal community about this approach.
