Ivan Zugec (Ivan Zugec)

Tue 19th Jun 2012 -- Lee Rowlands

In this episode we chat with Ivan Zugec at Drupal Down Under 2012 about his favourite bits of Drupal.
Ivan has been using Drupal for around 5 years, coming to Drupal looking for an ecommerce solution back in the 4.6 days. He gave ecommerce a try but couldn't get it to work. Around the same time he needed a CMS solution that provided clean-urls for a client and at that time, Drupal was the only open-source product providing that at no cost.

Just a quick update to all of those who were kind enough to participate in an interview with me during Drupal Downunder 2012 to explain what's happening with Drupal Yarns.

I've not forgotten you!

Things have changed considerably for Nick and myself, both of us have accepted permanent positions with PreviousNext, Australia's largest Drupal Firm. As a result Rowlands Group has effectively wound down all activities.


Getting Views Bulk Operations working with Draggable Views.

Wed 29th Feb 2012 -- Lee Rowlands


In Drupal 6, Views Bulk Operations and Draggable Views defined views style plugins in order to deliver their respective functionalities. While this is great it meant you could only have one or the other, not both.
