Sooo ... I've finally upgraded my own site. I thought it would be easy. A simple drupal site only using images. And yes I'm not reading READMEs that often. I trust drush somehow to handle this for me. But drush only sooth the 'pain'.
This blog contains my bash script which does some staging from production onto my laptop where I update the site to the latest D6 then upgrade to D7. The script is generic enough to adapt for other upgrades.
For a drupal 6 site I needed a node edit overlay. This is what I did.
Define the urls ajax/node/%node/edit and nojs/node/%node/edit. The idea is to use path similar to the normal drupal paths just prepended with what ctools modal needs. It needs are minor in that the url path must contain a string nojs and in this case a class attribute ctools-use-modal.
I recently discovered the site http://universalsubtitles.org which is a gateway to online video material and allows us to subtitle online videos.
In the past I tried to do something similar with http://mycaptions.org (offline) with an arcane editor using BUedit. With that system I managed to add subtitles to this video of which I like the animal.
We needed to protect our production site from prying eyes for a while with a basic authentication. Using apache basic auth settings seemed not enough. Or actually was too much. We wanted the theme to blend in. So these files were not supposed to get protected. Only our Drupal pages should.
