Typically our application is going to require testing of functionality that is restricted to only users with a certain set of permissions. Like creating a new node for example. In order for the DrupalWebTestCase browser to test these pages we need to first log in to our site. In order to log in we need to have a username and password that we can use to login. In this lesson we'll look at using
DrupalWebTestCase::drupalLogin() in order to gain authenticated access to our application and then access and submit a restricted form.
Here's an example of creating a user with the 'administer site configuration` permissions:
$new_user = $this->drupalCreateUser(array('administer site configuration'));
And then logging in as that user:
$new_user = $this->drupalLogin($new_user);
After that the SimpleTest browser will be logged in as that user and all requests that it makes will be authenticated. If you want to return to an anonymous user session you can use the
For more information about these helper methods check out the API Functions documentation in the Drupal.org handbook.
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?
