I enjoy making software and applying technology to help myself and friends and family achieve things as well as earning a living doing it.

My creative aspirations cross over into other disciplines including radio where I make programmes myself and with others for several local and community stations, in professional capacity as well as voluntary.

comment How to group and merge results together in Views?
Can you provide more information on how you'd like them grouped, i.e. to include the field that you are grouping them by and what data in it determines how they are grouped? You may be interested in views_merge_rows

comment CKEditor: *During* WYSIWYG edit, how to show caption beneath image?
Not a problem at all steve. Unfortunately not. We accepted the limitation. 8 months on from when this question was originally asked, I'm guessing that this is still the case with the current codebase given that you have looked at it about a day ago.

comment Looking for software to rename file name of jpeg scan image of doc to text in the image
+1 accepting this answer as stating that what I'm asking for is a tall order, big ask. Over a year on from asking this question, I have scanned all of said documents and named them manually, will a little help from some batch names for part of the name, mainly using Beyond Compare. So the problem is solved: different story same ending. All the original docs were destroyed anf only the digital remain.

comment Is it possible to use another menu as a submenu of a menu?
+1 thanks for this @Brandon Bearden it's certainly an option if the Advanced Menu module would not be suited (though I can't think of a scenario at the moment)

comment Debug Drupal in IDE: set breakpoints and step-by-step (i.e. step thru code) debugging - which tools do this successfully?
Thanks Clive, +1 on your answer (with your comments). I enjoyed using Eclipse for Java development. You're right: it's easy enough to try the tools as trials. My efforts with NetBeans were to show that there is a free option out there. Who knows some great things in Drupal 8 could come from some cash-strapped developer - and I'll find it heartwarming that I helped bring a half-decent dev env to more people like those.

comment Debug Drupal in IDE: set breakpoints and step-by-step (i.e. step thru code) debugging - which tools do this successfully?
Thanks Clive - I'm considering using PHPStorm. What do you think of IntelliJ IDEA - from the same company that makes PHPStorm. IntelliJ is the superset of PHPStorm in that it does all of PHPStorm plus support for other languages. I was considering getting intelliJ as in the past I have worked with other languages such as Java and may consider developing for Android at some point. I am informed that even though intelliJ supports PHP and does all of PHPStorm, intellij has a few extra steps for setting up a PHP project than PHP storm does. Thoughts please.
