Notes of the PHP from within Drupal 2nd session

Examples we used:

Example 1:

between the php tags:

$result = taxonomy_select_nodes( array(1, 3), 'or', 'all', true);
$html = node_title_list($result);
$html.= theme('pager');
print $html;

Example 2:

between the php tags:

$node = node_load(55);
print $node->choice[$i]['chvotes'];

and add to the url:


try 0 and 2 instead of one, to get the number of votes for the first and third choice respectively.

Example 3:

Doing the same thing but using Drupal functions.

between the php tags:

$node = node_load(55);
print $node->choice[$i]['chvotes']."

Wireless Networking in the Developing World

From the release note:

In almost every village, town, or city in the developing world, there are people who can build just about anything. With the right know-how, this can include wireless networks that connect their community to the Internet. The book addresses what Rob Flickenger, the book's editor and lead author, calls a chicken-and-egg problem: "While much information about building wireless networks can be found on-line, that presents a problem for people in areas with little or no connectivity", said Flickenger from his workshop in Seattle.
