I always wanted to find one place, where all Drupal Tutorials are stored. Yes, we have cool handbooks at Drupal, we have various Drupal blogs with cool content and long lists, but finding a new info takes time. You need to check here, check there, etc. So I decided to launch a small project called dtutorials.com.

UPD 23.02.13: There is a dedicated drupal snippets project called dropbucket.org - drupal snippets, check this one out to get loads of cool drupal snippets.

UPD 21.08.11: Thanks to my readers, I found old sources of this project and put them on GitHub, feel free to use them. Links are at the end of this post.

There is a lot of Drupal-related content appears everyday. My reader's Drupal folder has 20+ feeds in it and I try to look through every post about Drupal. Here are some most interesting articles about Drupal. Hand selected:

Weekly read

A bit harsh heading but it's going to be a real true. Guys from Development Seed released their Drupal distribution called Open Atrium. Open Atrium is an intranet in a box that has group spaces to allow different teams to have their own conversations. It comes with six features - a blog, a wiki, a calendar, a to do list, a shoutbox, and a dashboard to manage it all. It does everything Basecamp does and more. It is flexible and customizable, it is open... and most important, it is built on Drupal.

A good IDE tool which I frequently use for my web developments Aptana was updated to version 1.5!

A new version is now based on the latest Eclipse 3.5 (Galileo) platform.The main improvements developers promised to the public are significant performance boost and less memory consumption (man, at last!).

So you've decided to choose Drupal for your web project right? Good decision. I won't repeat all advantages of Drupal here, but this is a best platform for your web project unless you want to stick with PHP Framework and to start your development nearly from a scratch. Ok, I guess you already read all these articles about 'Top 10 things to do with Drupal' and bla bla bla... Well there are maybe some useful, but most of those tip lists are real content bullshit.

The Replicant

I was impressed by this short science fiction film. It only lasts for seven minutes, check this out! Ethan Delaney visits an underground cloning facility to better his life. His future self is confronted by a ghost from the past.

Do you Tweet? Me too. Soon this question will be as silly as the question “Do you have a cell phone?”. Twitter became a very powerful communication tool which perfectly fits lazy nature of people: “we don’t want to do much, but we aren’t against doing simple things at all”. Students, workers, clerks, housewife’s, politicians, pop stars and even, some presidents have their Twitter accounts. This is a great place for brands to communicate with their current and potential customers. Being friendly and opened to your client base builds great relationships with them.

Yesterday, I encountered the weird problem. Cron on one of my Drupal based web sites got stuck. I was checking my search index and realized that new content isn't being added to Drupal search database. Cron isn't launching and Database logger says that: "Attempting to re-run cron while it is already running". This is a common problem. So what should you do to fix this?

Ooops, I was notified that comments function isn't working on this blog. Sorry for that. I fixed this. Now you may leave your comments.
