Possibly append Machine Name with a descriptive name, especially if the field has a common description which could conflict with another field already in the system, or may be added later, ie: recipe_course.

Content Types > Recipe > Manage Fields

  • Edit settings of an item and you can adjust the field.
  • Alergines > Entity Reference, set configurations. Render Views filter as select list make sure it's checked.
  • Cook Time > Integer: Can add Prefix and Suffix
  • Image > Edit: Select Enabled browser plugins, this will determine where you can access files from. File Extensions should be adjusted to ensure the type of file you're using is defined.
  • Can specify the Content Layout using the Bootstrap Layout Options.

Structure > Field Collections

  • Add fields for the collections and asign regions.

Accessibility: Hiding something content based on positioning outside the viewable range of a page will make something not visible to visitors to the page, however, a screen reader can still pick it up. "Display None" would not get the content. Also could make a text that matches background color so it is invisible but allows a reader to see it.

Chaning or forcing Style changes should be a last resort.

Sher opened floor to anyone having anything to discuss or add.

  • Developers Meeting next week.
  • InterWebs Open Lab scheduled for Jan 22, 2016.
