Media + WYSIWYG + CKEditor 4.1+ Broken Embed Functionality

Posted in ckeditor, drupal, media, wysiwyg

Recently had issues with a brand new Drupal 7 site that required the ability to embed images in a WYSIWYG field. This has been done countless times before, but for some reason this time was different. Everything installed properly, and worked as you would expect. Install and enable the modules. Configure the Text Formats to convert media tags to markup. Enabled the Media browser in the corresponding WYSIWYG profiles. All going well so far.

Utilizing jQueryUI Core Effects in Drupal 7

Posted in drupal, effects, jquery, patch, ui, update

Recently needed to implement a simple animation, using the jQueryUI toggleClass() function. A handy function that will allow you to toggle a class on and off, and animate the changes of adding the class. Makes a lot of simple animations incredibly simple to implement.

Removing Drupal 7's File Type Icons

Posted in drupal, file, icons, remove

Drupal 7 has an interesting feature with the core File module, it will automatically look at the mime type of the file and display an appropriate file icon next to a link to the file. This is pretty nice, as you get a free visual indication of what type of file is being linked to. They even provide methods for passing along custom icon sets, so the icons are garaunteed to match the look and feel of your site.
