Drupal And the Disappearing Images Mystery

After working many years with a specific framework, you sometimes face difficulties that in other situations, specifically while learning a new language or framework would not even challenge you. One example for such a case is one I’ve encountered this past week, and to tackle it, all I’ve needed to do is to actually read the Drupal docs and not just flip through it.

The Drupal theme that RTLs itself

Long story short, Sasson can RTL itself with a single line of code. Long time ago, when we wanted to add bi-directionality to our site for RTL (Right-To-Left) languages like Arabic or Hebrew we had to use tools like CSSJanus or RTLer to flip our CSS and then paste the result into style-rtl.css and fix whatever needed fixing. This workflow have several drawbacks:

The /drupalgive initiative is gaining momentum

Drupalgive is a new and effective way of showing your love and contributions to [Drupal](http://www.linnovate.net/services#service-417).

17 days to DrupalCamp Israel !

As the temperatures here in Israel start changing to something sane and in the peak of the holiday season... I want to re invite whomever is the mideast (that's the world's middle east not Ohio :) ) to Drupalcamp Israel. Attendence is almost fully booked due to a high signup (around 170 people payed) and another big group of 60 Drupal newbies sponsered by the local internet association.

Drupalager - Open Source beer.

In our effort to grow drupal in the local foss and commercial scene, we decided to spice up one of the bigger opensource conferences in israel - August Penguin.
