There was a time that I was a tiny rock star. At least in Gent. I played in a band, we even made into Humo's Rock Rally once, but got friendly declined to enter the next round. Then, real life starts and you forget a rehearsal or two, ending up alone again in your room. Just like you were 14 again, practicing chords on your first guitar. Nothing is wrong with that, but one piece is missing: an album.
Every year, my hometown Ghent, hosts its annual festival called the Gentse Feesten. 10 days - actually, 11, if you count the unofficial pre-friday day - the city will barely sleep.
At BADCamp 2011 in San Francisco, Yves Chedemois, Greg Dunlap and I sat down to talk how we'd have to convert Field API to the configuration system that is now in Drupal 8.
I've blogged about this topic almost more than 3 years ago how I used a couple of drupal modules to send mails with images from my iPhone which automatically got posted to my site. But times change. I now own a Nexus One and one of my goals for 2012 is to write at least one decent mobile application.
By default it's not possible to override existing paths with Page manager, the excellent module that is bundled in the CTools project. The Page manager existing pages module now allows you to do that. Technically, this module defines one abstract task and one content type plugin, so menu items can be overridden and the original page callback can be called through the content type plugin. This project comes with one default existing page, which is 'node', the default Drupal frontpage.
