Drupal Module to add a Slashdot It bookmark
BY webmaster

Similar to the StumbleThis module that we had created earlier we have created another bookmarking module for Drupal - SlashdotIt module. Unlike the other social bookmarking sites Slashdot is very selective in terms of the articles that get approved from the submission queue also known as the Slashdot firehose. Use this module on your site only if you are sure that you have slashdot worthy content.

Check out http://www.slashdot.org and figure out the kind of articles that get posted at slashdot. If your site has comparable content then go ahead and use this module. The administrative options are similar to the StumbleThis Drupal module that we had created earlier. The module has been tested with Drupal 5.3. Please use the comments form below if you have any questions or suggestions.

We have added a few new modules to our site recently. Drupal Technical StumbleThis Sean (not verified) access_time 21 Sep 2021 - 00:00 Hi there, I uploaded the files, enabled the modules to use SU, and now I see the link, but there is no icon... How can I fix this? Thanks, Sean webmaster access_time 21 Sep 2021 - 00:00 In reply to Icon doesn't show by Sean (not verified) What do you see when you view the source? Search for stumblethis_button and you should be able to see the code for the image and the URL. Then you should be able to troubleshoot from there.

Most webmasters do not realize this, but a lot of the content on lot of websites can be accessed from multiple URLs. A simple example would be where www.example.com and example.com leads to the same page. This is a fatal mistake in Search Engine Optimization and search engines penalize you for duplicate content. The correct configuration would be where the above two urls will lead you to the same page but example.com will redirect you to www.example.com with a 301 (Moved permanently) status which will not result in search engines penalizing the page. It is very easy to configure 301 redirects using Apache .htaccess file and the process is the same for a Drupal installation also. Drupal Technical Apache htaccess SEO Anonymous (not verified) access_time 21 Sep 2021 - 00:00 Hello. I'm trying to make example.com show as www.example.com, and I'm running into difficulties. I'm on Apache 2.0 and using the following lines in my httpd.conf file: RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^xxxxxxxxxx\.com$ [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.xxxxxxxxxx.com/$1 [L,R=301] When I go to http://xxxxxxxxxx.com, I get http://www.xxxxxxxxxx.com (as expected). However, when I go to http://xxxxxxxxxx.com/node/1 (it's a Drupal site), I get a 404 thrown and the URL changes to xxxxxxxxxx.com/var/www/drupal/node/1. Same thing with www.xxxxxxxxxx.com/node/1. Any suggestions? I want to run without Drupal's .htaccess file (instead incorporating these calls into my httpd.conf file). webmaster access_time 21 Sep 2021 - 00:00 In reply to Rewrite including filesystem path by Anonymous (not verified) I think the problem is with the base path which results in the redirection to /var/www/ part. The best approach I would think is to start with drupal htaccess and then strip out parts and move to httpd SNVC (not verified) access_time 21 Sep 2021 - 00:00 This is definitely a good guide. Thanks for this. wellyson access_time 21 Sep 2021 - 00:00 This is really nice and helpful.

Drupal 6 was released on Feb 13, 2008, 13 months after Drupal 5 was released. Extending that estimation Drupal 7 should be out around March or April 2009. That is around 8-9 months from now, Drupal 5 will become obsolete. There has been talks going to extend the support life cycle of Drupal 5 beyond the release date of Drupal 6 but nothing as of now. We are happy to announce that we will be able to support people who would like to convert Drupal 5.x modules to Drupal 6.x. If you want help to port a Drupal 5 or Drupal 4 module to Drupal 6 contact us to get a quote for your requirement. Drupal Technical Drupal MIgration Drupal 5 Drupal 6

I'm interested in this module, but Drupal 6.2 complains that it's incompatible with it. Can you please update it or tell me how?
