According to John J Medina a famous molecular biologist “Vision trumps all other senses.” Human mind is attracted to remember dynamic pictures rather than listen to words or read long texts. Advancement in multimedia has enabled teachers to impart visual representation of content in the class room.
DrupalCon is a great opportunity to learn all kinds of new skills and grow professionally. For the 3 days of the main conference in Dublin (September 27–29) there will be sessions on just about everything related to Drupal that you could want. One amazing opportunity that you may not be aware of though is the Mentored Sprint on Friday, September 30th. This is a great place for new folks to learn the ropes of our community and how to contribute back. What may be less talked about is the chance to be a mentor.

We’ve made big strides since Drupalcon New Orleans in how we add new features to Drupal core. The concept of experimental modules has already helped us introduce features like a new way to add blocks to a page, content moderation and workflow tools and a whole new approach for editing all the things on a page while staying at that page.
In New Orleans we started to define the process for making these kinds of big changes. Probably the most important and defining aspect of it is that we’re (finally!) enabling a clearer separation between vetting ideas first, implementation second.
True to form we specified and detailed the latter part first :-)
So, on to that first part, vetting Drupal product ideas. In my core conversation I outlined the need for making bigger UX changes, faster and suggested possible approaches for how to design and develop those, borrowing heavily from the Lean UX method
Since then, we’ve been reminded that we really do need a clearly defined space to discuss the strategic value of proposed new features. A place to decide if a given idea is desirable and viable as an addition to core.
The point being: core product manager with help from Drupal UX team members wrote up a proposal for how to propose core product ideas and what’s needed to turn a good idea into an actionable plan.

As we work every day on our own projects, with our own deadlines and priorities, it is often too easy to forget about the entire community of others using Drupal in much the same way. When we're working with Drupal in our various capacities, there is no shortage of methods to interact with the community and contribute back, but those aren't the focus of this post.
You want to have some taxonomy terms on your site, but you don't want editors to be able to add them to new content. In other words, you would like to just delete the terms, but for whatever reason you can't - so you want to make sure they don't get used any more.Limitations
This module currently only works on core Taxonomy Term Reference fields using the "Select list" widget type.Usage
After enabling the module, edit any taxonomy term that you would like to hide from editors and check the box labeled "Tag no more", and then save.
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 Critical security releases for the Panels modules for multiple Access Bypass vulnerabilities.
The first vulnerability allows anonymous users to use AJAX callbacks to pull content and configuration from Panels, which allow them to access private data. And the second, allows authenticated users with permission to use the Panels IPE to modify the Panels display for pages that they don't have permission to otherwise edit.
See the security advisory for Drupal 7 for more information.
Here you can download the patch for 6.x-3.x!
If you have a Drupal 6 site using the Panels module, we recommend you update immediately! We have already deployed the patch for all of our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support clients. :-)
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).
