We use the mail import feature of Drupal in our apps to accept content like calls and invoices coming from multiple sources. This tutorial shows how to work with just one email account for multiple sources/clients to import mails into drupal. It works with aliasing/nicknames. This way you can use one email account for multiple email addresses to import mails into different drupal sites. This tutorial was also partly published at...

I came across Fiverr.com through a tweet from a friend, who had his picture cartoonized for 5$. It seems to good to be true and reading through the offerings on the site I wondered "what's the catch behind all this?".


Client story

One of our clients, a multi-national holding company managed to realize considerable savings by using Maverick for the handling of their purchase invoices.

I love Noteliner to keep my live organized. But the latest version is not working straight away from Wine, within Ubuntu (which I use for several good reasons, but that's another story). This is how I solved the problem.

Just a little note on the Feeds module. Yesterday I was working on one of our applications (Maverick) and I was unable to import mail messages using the Mailhandler module.

I configured the Feeds processor correctly, but every time I tried to retrieve mails to import them in Maverick I got the message "There is no...

We are using the Popups API and Popups: Add and Reference to create new nodes in a popup window. For example, you are registering an invoice in Maverick and the necessary creditor does not exist in Maverick yet. You can click on the link 'Add New: Add Creditor'  to add a new creditor in a popup screen.

When you use the AdvAgg module together with the Popups API, the formatting is not preserved while opening a popup.

You need to patch the Popups API to work together with the AdvAgg module. In popups_preprocess_page() it detects if core's aggregration is turned off; it does not take into account AdvAgg.

You can find the patch...

For a client of us, each flight ticket needs to be approved by a manager. After approval, the flight ticket needs to be matched and linked to the original invoice (from the credit card company).

Until now we have been using traditional Gantt style planning tools, but the problem with these type of tools is the strong focus on planning and scheduling and not so much on the balancing with priorities and deadlines across multiple projects. PC-based tools like MS/...

Drupal 7 is using InnoDB as default database engine. When you create a database in Drupal 6.26, it is already using the InnoDB engine for the database.
I had really performance issues running this database on my Ubuntu setup. It seems InnoDB has some trouble on my system to count the records in a table. Didn't do much investigating on this issue, because I had some deadlines coming up. Quick workaround: Change the database engine for all your tables back to MyISAM. Try this...

Sometimes you want direct a menu item in Drupal to a location using a relative link. You cannot use <front>/{location} because Drupal validates the link.
When you add a new link, the link is validated using menu_edit_item_validate(), it returns true when: 

  • the path is <front> (<front>/...
