Tips and tricks I've discovered for Drupal.

LaTeX and Web Fonts in Drupal 7

Thu, 03/22/2012 - 17:14 -- Doug

If you hadn't noticed already from the last post, I've been on kind of a math kick these days. I've been eager to share what I've learned, haven't had a way to share formulas other than  images. That's ok, but it's not very flexible.

I tried setting things up manually, but didn't have a ton of luck. Fortunately, there's a module (MathJax: LaTeX for Drupal) that seems to work pretty well. Unfotunately, it's still in beta, so use it at your own risk.

Drupal 7 and EHL

Sat, 08/20/2011 - 16:55 -- Doug

I know it's going to drive me crazy, but it's time to finally get off my arse and upgrade to Drupal 7. Here's the plan:

  • Create a stable clone on the home dev server
  • Test the upgrade.
  • Swear a lot. Oh wait. I guess I did that first. 
  • Try it in production. 
  • Swear again. Lots.
  • Sucess!
  • Have a drink. Maybe two. 

I really want to get the site back to some semblance of life again. I miss podcasting and blogging a bunch. What I dont want to do, though, is get all fired up on content and fall two versions behind. 

Send HTML Email from Your Drupal Site with Gmail, SMTP and MIME Mail

Sat, 06/04/2011 - 19:34 -- Doug

Getting one of my Drupal sites to send HTML email from a Gmail gave me more grief that I'd like to admit. The documentation for this one task seemed so scattered and unclear, it just makes sense to finally have it all in one place. Hopefully I can save a few of you some work.

First, make sure SSL has been enabled in php.ini. You'll probably have to type this line from scratch with the other extensions.
