-----------------------
Most of the time it's just not possible to upgrade a Drupal 6 site to Drupal 7 and you have to start from scratch and one of the easiest ways of migrating the mass of content is to use XML and a couple of handy modules. This method is more robust than using node export as it allows you to create bespoke migrations and can still handle the content even if all the field names are different.

NWDUG Donates Money To MadLab!

When we set out to hold the DrupalCampNW12 event last year we planned to give some of the money left over to MadLab, which is where we hold our monthly meetups. MadLab is a non-profit organisation that exists to create a community space that everyone can enjoy, and NWDUG has been a part of that since started meeting there just over 3 years ago.

North West Drupal Usergroup Meetup August 2013

Date: 
Wednesday, 7 August, 2013 - 19:00 to 21:00
Venue: 
Main Talk Ability: 
Advanced

The August NWDUG meetup will take place on Wednesday 7th at MadLab on Edge Street from 7PM until 9PM.

This month we have Andrew Macpherson who will be talking about the Field UI API (and some modules which use it).
-----------------------
Drupal's field formatters offer site builders lots of ways to display their content, but sometimes a few more options are needed.

This session will start with a look at the Field Formatter Settings API module for Drupal 7, which gives developers an easy way to add new settings to field formatters.

Next, we'll take a quick tour through a range of helpful little modules which site builders can use to tweak their content output. Custom field labels, extra text-trimming options, HTML5 data attributes, limiting multiple values... there's a module for all of these!

To round things off we'll look forward to Drupal 8, which takes things a little further. With the new Field UI API and Form Display Modes, extra settings can be applied to field widgets too!
-----------------------

After the talk we will break off into groups so that people can talk through their Drupal problems with other members of the group. There is nothing formal planned for this, we will just ask if anyone has any problems and if anyone can help them solve it. We are reintroducing this as it is something we haven't done for a while but some members have mentioned that they miss it.

We usually wrap things up before 9:00 PM and move to a pub. Come along and join in the Drupal fun!
