Before we can start building our custom field we need a vanilla Drupal site to work with and a skeleton module. This lesson will ensure you've got Drupal 7 up and running and walk through creation of a basic .info file and .module file for the module we'll be building. If you're already familiar with Drupal module development this lesson can likely be skipped and you can simply download the attached starter files, add them to an existing Drupal site, and continue on with the next lesson.
You'll also want to download and install the devel module as we'll make use of some of the debugging functions in provides (namely
dsm()) in later lessons in this series.
Alternatly, you can grab the .zip file under the companion files listed on this page which contains Drupal 7, and a database dump you can import to get started.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word hug as; squeeze (someone) tightly in one's arms, typically to express affection.
Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
