Image Field Repair is a module that repairs image fields that are touched by issue #2644468: Multiple image upload breaks image dimensions.
As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!
Today, there is a Moderately Critical security release for the Autologout module to fix a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability.
This module provides a site administrator the ability to log users out after a specified time of inactivity.
The module does not sufficiently filter user-supplied text that is shown when logging a user out. This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with the permission "administer autologout".
See the security advisory for Drupal 7 for more information.
Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch.
NOTE: This only affects the Autologout 6.x-4.x branch -- the 6.x-2.x branch (which we also support) isn't vulnerable.
If you have a Drupal 6 site using the Autologout module, we recommend you update immediately.
If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.
Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).
- A pop up with a sale countdown timer.
- Access to a section of the site where you can edit countdown timer.
- Preview the sale popup so that I can verify it all looks clean.
- Display the sale popup either in modal window, or at the top of the page
Adds an event subscriber to handle XSD validation exceptions from turnerlabs/validating-xml-encoder by outputting the error message in a comment at the top of the XML output.
PXE, sounds like pixie. Pixie dust. Sprinkle a pretty XSD error comment on your invalid dirty XML.
Commerce Guys: Commerce Braintree integration adds PayPal Express Checkout and PayPal Credit support
Drupal Commerce is more than just a module project. As I laid out in my session at DrupalCon Vienna, it is an entire ecosystem supported by dozens of agencies and powering well over $1.5bn in online transactions annually. This makes Drupal Commerce one of the largest open source eCommerce projects in the world, and it's thanks in no small part to our Technology Partners (comprised primarily of payment providers) that we are able to invest as much of our time in it as we do.
Braintree is one such partner and a fantastic supporter of Commerce 2.x since last Summer. During our sprint to release a beta at DrupalCon Dublin, they sponsored Bojan's time for two weeks to expand and improve the core Payment API.
As a result, they also became the first integrated payment gateway and the test case for any payment provider following their integration pattern - individual iframes embedded into the checkout form for each payment field, making it easy to securely collect payment card data through your own checkout form.
For the initial release of the Commerce Braintree integration on Drupal 8, we targeted basic credit card payment support via their Hosted Fields API. As of this week, we've finalized patches that add support for PayPal Express Checkout and PayPal Credit alongside credit card payment through Braintree. They are a PayPal company, after all!
Customers can pay via credit card on-site or Express Checkout via a modal dialog.
You can test the new features end to end by grabbing the latest release of the Commerce Braintree module and configuring it to work through the Braintree sandbox. If you get stuck, you can find us in the #commerce channel in the Drupal Slack or open an issue in the queue if that's not possible.
Thanks again to Braintree for their support and development sponsorship. If you'd like to learn more about how Technology Partners benefit our ecosystem, consider joining me and Commerce Braintree's D7 co-maintainer Andy Giles this weekend at DrupalCamp Atlanta (Nov. 3-4). I'll present a longer version of my DrupalCon session, Marketing and Selling the Drupal Commerce Ecosystem, and naturally I'll tap Andy to help me answer all your hardest questions. ; )

Lots of live Commerce 2 sites were actively and successfully selling products to people long before the official launch on September 20th. We ourselves were among the early adopters taking advantage of the new functionality available in Drupal 8. But as with any new-and-not-fully-tested technology, there were the inevitable growing pains: missing functionality, bugs, etc. Fortunately, most of those issues are now in the past.
A few core modules that were buggy but are solid now:
- Promotions and coupons
- Payments (supports 30+ payment gateways!)
As an added bonus, the Commerce Shipping module that Acro Media helped develop received a full stable release alongside Commerce 2 (which is especially cool when you remember that Commerce 1 launched with no shipping functionality at all). Commerce Shipping features a much improved API and includes support for UPS and FedEx, with USPS to follow shortly.
Acro Media and other community members have been working on a few other associated modules to go along with the Commerce 2 launch. Here are the details:
- Point of Sale is going to alpha release
- Commerce Migrate is going to have a new release (likely not a stable release, however, as there is still work to be done migrating edge cases)
Ubercart to Commerce 2 migrate is mostly done and includes all core stuff like products, customers, orders, taxes, etc.
Commerce 1 to Commerce 2 migrate is a little rough but is still very usable; an improved version should be ready in October sometime
A cool new Composer based Commerce Kickstart installer is also available! It represents a great improvement over the original Commerce Kickstart and should be easier for everyone to use. You can find that here.
TLDR: The fully supported, stable release of Commerce 2 is live and has lots of cool stuff with it. If you were hesitant to use it to build sites before, you most certainly can go ahead now.
You most likely created image styles with Drupal's "Scale and crop" image effect. This style allows you to display large images on a smaller scale and save precious screen space.
There is one issue with such styling though. Often the most interesting point of the image gets chopped off. The "Focal Point" contrib module helps avoid this issue.
In this tutorial, you will learn to use this module to select the most important portion of the image you would like to show to your readers.
