The new face of Drupal - Bartik | Linnovate. Drupal Experts.

Drupal 7 is going to introduce a lot of improvements, many of them regarding the user experience and user interface. in the past few days one of the greatest (and maybe the last) of these changes was committed - a new core theme, and not just a core theme but a new default theme for Drupal - that means that the mythological Garland, after almost four years, gives way to a new, fresh face for the next Drupal release.

Menu Firstchild |

By default, Drupal 6 requires that you enter a path for each menu link you add/edit from the Menu administration page. There are cases you may want to create a parent item, without any path, that simply links to its first viewable child item. Menu Firstchild provides this functionality.

CKEditor Link - A plugin to easily create links to Drupal internal paths |

This module currently allows to easily create links to Drupal nodes through CKEditor's Link button and dialog. It can be considered as a stable alternative to the experimental and non-recommended Link to content module.

Menu Editor |

Menu Editor enhances the menu editing form with inline text fields for title, path and description, and provides placeholders for new items. This way, it reduces the number of page visits needed to create a site's menu structure, and eliminates the need for dummy nodes.

Table Wizard |

The Table Wizard facilitates dealing with database tables: It allows surfacing any table in the Drupal default database through Views 2. Relationships between the tables it manages can be defined, so views combining data in the tables can be constructed. It performs analysis of the tables it manages, reporting on empty fields, data ranges, ranges of string lengths, etc. It provides an API for other modules to views-enable their tables. It provides an API for importing data into tables in the Drupal default database (automatically doing the views integration above). It is bundled with an implementation of this API, for importing comma- and tab-delimited files.

Publication en open-source du socle technique des sites France 24 et RFI | LAB France24

Lancé en décembre 2006, la première version du site de France 24 était basée sur un CMS Java, Magniola. Mais à cause de problèmes de stabilité, nous avions migré le site sur Drupal 5 six mois plus tard. Nous venons tout juste de migrer le site de France 24 sur Drupal 6 et un socle technique réécrit from scratch. Ce socle est aussi partagée par la nouvelle version du site de RFI, lancée quasi-simultanément début novembre. Il en résulte un socle technique générique composé de modules Drupal, qui pourraient être réutilisés par d'autres sites journalistiques.
