Updated my blog to Drupal 7!

Submitted by fago on Sun, 01/30/2011 - 13:51
My old blog at was running on Drupal 5 for quite a while. With the recent release of Drupal 7 I thought it would be a good time to update my blog. So finally, I did and here it is: As the old node-profile/views-fusion demo was running on my old blog, it's offline now too. During the last 4 and a half year, about 3000 users tried the demo. But who knows how many of those just tried to spam the site? ;) Anyway, good bye, Drupal 5!

Content Profile - the "profiles-as-nodes" base module for drupal 6!

Submitted by fago on Wed, 07/23/2008 - 11:12
I'm really happy to announce that Content Profile is going to be the common base module for "profiles-as-nodes" solutions in drupal 6.x! After a long discussion thought my efforts to join bio and node profile development were for nothing. But then the discussion continued and we were able to agree on a common base module, which avoids unnecessary code duplication and provides an API on which further extension modules may rely on. The people from FunnyMonkey started working on it and agreed with me on continuing my previous work on this topic: Content Profile :) So now as we have a decision we can concentrate on coding..

Node Profile 5.x 1.1 released!

Submitted by fago on Mon, 04/30/2007 - 13:46
Thanks to the great subform element API module, which I wrote originally for pageroute, it was quite easy to implement some great new features for the node profile module, which make building simple node profiles a lot easier. So node profile 1.1 features
  • configurable user edit categories integration - edit a simple nodeprofile like a core profile
  • configurable node profile display integration on the user's (my account) page or - if used - also on the usernode
  • configurable user registration integration
  • easy integration of a nodeprofile in any theme
You can find the settings to this new features in the also new per content type node profile settings - just edit your node profile content type and click on the new "Node Profile" tab.

Drupal 5 has been already released, so it's time to port the nodeprofile modules to 5.x My current employer Pro.Karriere has now also employed jpetso, who helps me porting the modules to 5.x. So thanks to jpetso the usernode module has been already ported - just check out its 5.x development branch. So what's next?
  • port nodefamily to 5.x -ported
  • port nodeprofile to 5.x -ported
  • port views_fusion to 5.x -ported
  • port pageroute to 5.x -ported

Great news! merlinofchaos has released views version 1.2 for drupal 4.7, which comes with views fusion support out of the box. So there is no further patching of views required :) So making sophistaced views containing data of several nodes like this userlist becomes easier than ever. Thanks to merlinofchaos :)

more pageroute documentation and 4.7 releases

Submitted by fago on Sun, 10/29/2006 - 21:02
I added more documentation to the pageroute module. Update your nodefamily and pageroute modules! You can find it in the documentation area of your drupal installation ('admin/help') if you have the help module activated. Now I'm considering all really necessary documentation as complete :) So I've finally tagged all the nodeprofile modules with DRUPAL-4-7!
