I needed to do some custom validation of fields on a form. So, I decided to use #element_validate. One of the fields I was validating appeared a bit strange to me, though. When I displayed its $form_state['values']['field_face_palm'] information I saw that it looked like: $field_face_palm['und'] = 'you_knucklehead' instead of like: $field_face_palm['und'][0]['value'] = 'you_knucklehead' read...

Topic: DrupalAcquiaBusinessThe futureA few days ago, I sat down with Quentin Hardy of The New York Times to talk Open Source. We spoke mostly about the Drupal ecosystem and how Acquia makes money. As someone who spent almost his entire career in Open Source, I'm a firm believer in the fact that you can build a high-growth, high-margin business and help the community flourish. It's not an...

What makes this partnership even more exciting, is that the main dccomics.com site also includes sites for Vertigo Comics and Mad Magazine. Most recently Metal Toad was given the task of building the new search feature for all three sites. However, while its an awesome privilege to work with such a well known brand...
