I have nothing against new Drupal users on Drupal.org, even the most advanced Drupal developers were new to Drupal at one point or another, but I have seen a pattern among certain new users that drives me crazy. In fact it drove me crazy back even when I was new to Drupal myself: the abuse of the term newbie.
Ok I admit that that sounds like a pretty weird thing to say, but I have a well formulated psychological analysis to back me up. Hear me out people.
This document is intended for module developers who wish to make use of JQuery to process an array of hierarchical data into a click and expand menu. It is written with the assumption that you are a programmer and that you know how to create multidimensional arrays through recursive functions.
The only function that third party modules need to call from JQuery menu in order to create a click and expand menu is as follows:
theme(‘menu_creation_by_array’, $menutree, $trail);
This calls the theme function menu_creation_by_array() and sends it two arguments:
The Views module for Drupal 6 (also known as Views 2) ships with several default views which allow you to override certain Drupal core list pages. One of the most useful of these views is the view provided for taxonomy term list. Just recently I decided to set up views to override my taxonomy pages so that they would show children terms, but when I jumped into the Views 2 interface and tried to actually do it I was left a little perplexed; if you are reading this page you probably were too.

Drupal hit it big when version 5 came out. Before this time it had a considerable user base, but it hadn’t gone main stream yet. The transition from Drupal 4 to Drupal 5 was extremely quick. No one held on to Drupal 4 and all significant modules released 5x versions within a few months. When Drupal 6 came out last year I think many of us expected the same kind of quick upgrading and transitioning, but alas, and many important modules have taken their sweet time coming out with a 6x release.
