After much success this became our 10 Drupal Commandments.

Let us know what your 10 Drupal Commandments are.

[chuckles] Nice list. Your Elizabethan English has a few issues, though:

  1. Thou SHALT clear thy cache.
  2. THY node shall be published before THOU BLAMEST views.
  3. THY files shall have correct permissions.
  4. Thou SHALT spell thy hook correctly.
  5. THY files shall be named correctly.
  6. Thou SHALT be on the correct server to view thy work.
  7. THY functions shall return.
  8. Thou SHALT remember APC is running.
  9. THY markup shall be overridable by thy theming brethren.
  10. Thou SHALT not hack core, NEITHER contributed modules.

Thou shall align your top 10 numbered lists so that the numerals are readable:)

Re: #10

Sometimes it is necessary to hack core (until the core update module provides proxy support)

Also, if you hack a contributed module, remember to edit the info file to make it custom
