Libertarians want a small government, where corporations have almost unlimited powers to do their business. Business and economic growth is the name of the game, and in fact, the only game in town. Unfortunately, along with that, they support reducing personal freedoms: the right to marry the same sex, abortion, privacy, surveillance etc. On the […]

Webform Translation

Drupal Modules - Fri, 04/03/2016 - 1:55pm

Allows translation of webform components, only works in combination with Entity Translation because then you have a single "node" and thus a single set of webform components.

Be aware there currently is no support for:

  1. e-mails
  2. confirmation messages (use Entity translation for a translated page).

Tested with Webform 7.x-4.12 but an older version also worked with 7.x-3.x please let me know if things break.

Founder dilution

Dries Buytaert's website - Fri, 04/03/2016 - 12:26pm

As founders of startups raise money from investors, their share of the company gets "diluted". This means the percentage of the company they own gets smaller and smaller. Last month a friend asked me the following question: "What do you believe would be a good equity position as a startup founder after a Series A? I don't want to be diluted too much.". This week, another friend who is in the process of raising money asked me if he should accept certain "preferences" from his potential investors in favor of a higher valuation and less dilution.

Praise of component reuse

Enrico Zini's blog - Fri, 04/03/2016 - 10:54am

I farm bits and pieces out to the guys who are much more brilliant than I am. I say, "build me a laser", this. "Design me a molecular analyzer", that. They do, and I just stick 'em together. (Seth Brundle, "The Fly")

When I decided to try and turn siterefactor into staticsite, I decided that I would go ahead only for as long as it could be done with minimal work, writing code in the most straightforward way on top of existing and stable components.

IP Path Access

Drupal Modules - Thu, 03/03/2016 - 9:44pm

IP Path Access is an access control module which allows an administrator to set a path and IP (or IP range) and prevent all users from accessing the path that are not accessing from the set IP address (or IP range).

In other words, the module is intended to permit access to the path and IP set, and deny for all others.

There are permissions available to specify which roles can add and delete IP settings, as well as user roles who can bypass the IP blocking.

Multiple IP and path pairs can be set, as long as they do not exactly match.
