Victoria Drupal User Group Meetup

Theming Consistency with Drupal's View Modes

Presented by Raj Persram 
May 5th, 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Drupal 7 has vastly expanded the use of its native View Modes, which controls the presentation of every content type. This presentation will focus on this often under-appreciated tool, illustrating how it can be utilized to achieve theming consistency with common content types such as Articles, Blogs, News, etc. and show how, in turn, you can reduce your reliance on the Views module. 

Regular monthly Meetups 

Come meet local Drupalistas and learn more about Drupal at our regular monthly meetings, which are now in the boardroom at VIATeC above the Scotia Bank at the northeast corner of Douglas and Hillside (entry from the large parking lot behind the building, north of Douglas on Hillside) Avoid the clearly marked 24-hour metered parking slots. The Scotia bank, furniture store, and VIATeC slots are all safe and free in the evening.  The Hillside liquor store is nearby; please bring your own beer or wine to socialize after the presentation.

Please let us know your suggestions for:

• Your ideas for Meetup activities that can encourage and support useful information exchanges and personal interactions

• Who you would like to see be a Presenter, Facilitator and/or Leader of a Meetup activity.

• What Drupal topics would you like to have dealt with at a Meetup.

• Anything else you can think of that would motivate you to participate in a Meetup.

    Excellent. Learned lots and had a good time. Raj's presentation was really clear and covered a lot of territory, the post presentation discussions on future Meetups and other topics generated some excellent ideas and the wind-up social time was enjoyable. So...why only four stars? To leave room for growth and improvement!
