Drupal is an open-source content-management framework written in PHP used as a back-end framework for websites and is also used for knowledge management and business collaboration. The standard release of Drupal contains basic features common to content management systems, including user account registration and maintenance, menu management, RSS feeds, taxonomy, page layout customization, and system administration.

I have a clean install of Drupal 7.
I'm creating a view in Drupal 7 and when I select a field for a filter I expect a screen which allows me to select "Dropdown" or "Autocomplete" but it doesn't appear.

In Drupal, I want to invite users to register for my site to post comments. I'd like to make it so the ones I invite already have a username/password, but drupal asks for an email address for each new user. How can I remedy that? Can I blank it out somehow til the user actually logs in, then they can enter their own email address?

Create a content type "test system" with 2 fields
Content type: test system

name, text

Create a XML file, and upload it to the server.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<response>
<result>
<id>298</id>
<name>This is ID 298 description</name>
</result>
<result>

<name>This is ID 452 description</name>
</result>
</response>

Create an Feed Importer to use this uploaded file to create/update "test system" content.

But it is not importing content feeds.
It doesnot display any error, but displays only a message i.e "There are no new nodes".
There are no new nodes.
STATUS: No imported items.

The modules are:
Feeds 7.x-2.0-alpha8+68-dev Aggregates RSS/Atom/RDF feeds, imports CSV files and more.

Hi everyone -

I'm both perplexed and frustrated.  I have TWO websites both are Drupal and both are based on Acquia distributions.  The websites are quite separate in terms of hosting, although both are hosted by the same provider (managed as 2 separate subscriptions).

Website 1 WORKS - I can log into cPanel and create a FullBackUp.  I download the backup to my local machine and unzip the .gz and .tar in 2 stages using 7-zip.  I use Acquia Dev Desktop 2 to run the backup website.  I navigate to Backup...\public_html for the website and use the option to use an existing SQL db which I find in  a folder called mysql.  After my dino-PC churns away for a short while my website appears.

Website 2 FAILS - I do everything the same but... After my dino-PC churns away for a short while I see the new website setup wizard.  I'm at a loss as to what the causal difference is.

I've tried several things, including repeating entire process on multiple PCs but website 1 always restores and website 2 always gives me the setup wizard.  Website 2 is due (overdue, perhaps) for a security update and other than that it works perfectly so I am reluctant to change the live version until I have at least verified the update on my desktop.

Any help much appreciated!

Refer to screen capture.

My LOGOUT button link works fine relative to the front page, but from another child page, its wonky.

I'm guessing something is skewed with the way Drupal is treating relative URLs on this site?

Drupal 6 site is slow.

Want to track performance / page execution time.
- check each step, PHP code, execution time
- check JavaScript execution time
- check CSS execution time

http://krumo.sourceforge.net
Krumo prints out the function stack, each step/function from bootstrap to the page up.

Could Krumo give information about the execution time of each step?

There are also other tools, such as the following listing:
https://www.drupal.org/project/performance
Performance Logging and Monitoring

https://www.drupal.org/project/xhprof
XHProf

https://www.drupal.org/project/profiling
Profiling

What are the tools / methods to track the step by step performance (execution time)?

How do I grab the Node ID in the URL of the current page and pass it through a link?

1) The URL on the current page is in the format:  website.com/parameter/parameter/parameter and the third parameter is the Node ID.
2) I want to grab that Node ID and put it into a link on that page like <a href="/node/add/contenttype?field_demo_id_reference=123">Link</>

So this may be a strange question, but bear with me.

I am proficient at building Drupal websites, and I would like to build one for our department at work. However, the resources I need for building the website are not available at work (servers etc).

I can easily build one and publish on the web, but I don't need this website to be available to the general public. We have an internal network and intranet.

So here's the question: Is there any way to publish a website on the web, but have it accessible only if it is accessed from, say a certain IP range, or something else like that? I know that I can password protect the site, but I want internal users to be able to access it seamlessly, without having to login.

Your thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Hey guys,
So it seems like one of my sites have been attached via injection. When I do a Fetch in Google Webmaster Tools, spam code shows up in the site's footer. See the attached screenshot for an example of the code. Google has a problem with this code, understandably.

Where do I begin? Which files to do need to examine etc? Thanks in advance!

Use case: This content type offers an Approval Status with three radion button options, Submitted, Approve, and Reject.

A node from this content type can go through all three in its lifetime.

And that "history" should be displayed at the bottom of  the page.

How do I do this?

I have page here that contains a custom bulleted list: http://zoomapartmentfinder.com/terms-of-service
I know how to adjust margins, padding and indent to show what I call a hanging indent list, meaning the bullet is the only item hanging out to the left and the multiple line text aligns left to the right of the hanging bullet.

In this case, the bullets disappear when I apply these selectors. I was hoping someone could tell me how to modify the Drupal style sheet or something else to apply inline styles in the right way and show the bullets when they hang left.

Use case: I've created a custom content type with a variety of fields and widgets.

I want some privaledged users to be able to edit these nodes, but not get distracted by several fields they will not need.

So to provide a slimmer version of the edit mode...is it something I should do with Views, or perhaps create a custom tpl file?

Hi I have a drupal site running on IIS. The server have a private IP adress 192.168.1.10
This IP is mapped to a public IP on the firewall. So external users can access the website on the public address.
The problem is that from the server itself, I can't access http://www.examplesite.com or the public IP. I can only access the website by going to http://localhost

Drupal is behaving strange and the drupal guys is telling me that the website should be accessed only on the domain address www.examplesite.com
How do I accomplish this? nslookup shows the correct IP-domain translation
