We had been always using FAQ module to create Frequently Asked Questions for any of our projects. But on our latest theme, BizReview, we switch to a new module, FAQ Field.

FAQ is a classic module, it is there since Drupal 6. So when we have to build a FAQ section, using this module is a no brainer. This is the FAQ module in action on our Velocity theme.

Recently, when I wanted to download that module again for my new project, I was too lazy to type the full URL, so I google "drupal faq". It happened to display another new module, called FAQ field. I looked at the description and found it...

When you download and install the Drupal core, it is by default English, as you may know. Our Drupal themes on Symphony Themes are also in English by default. In many cases, I receive requests from customers on how to quickly translate Drupal to their languages (not English, ofcourse).

Here is the guide. It applies to translate Drupal in a non-multilanguage site. If you need more than one language in the same site, you will need to do a lot more stuffs, which can be found on another article.

1. Enable neccessary modules

Please go to admin/modules and enable Locale and Content translation.

2. Add your language

Go to admin/config/regional/language to add your language, please choose it as default language

3. Download the translation manually

Are you turned off with table content, especially a long table of over 100 rows? It is a nightmare to create a HTML table, look for each tag to enter data.

Recently, I was working on a local project which has a member directory on 63 provinces over the country. Each province has 5 lists of different types of members to keep track with. Each list has an average of 50-100 members. It is not hard to imagine inputing them by HTML is a nightmare.

That's when Table Field comes in handy.

What it does?

Basically, this Table Field module allows you to create a field in your content type with tabular data. You can either enter cell data manually by specifying the number of rows/columns; or you can import from a CSV file.

Using CSV import is the most amazing feature that I need for my project. Just turn Excel files to CSV, upload to each node and it is do...

This organization theme was inspired by my talk with Kim McCluskey, the founder of SunInMyHeart.com, a charity fund. During his trip to Halong Bay, I have heard about what he did for SunInMyHeart to help orphanage children. So after the trip, I created this theme for organization and non profit purposes. 

If you are interested in using this theme for your charity funds, please feel free to ask me and I will send you the package free-of-charge.

We have received many requests to download this theme. As we believe the use of this theme for your websites will bring alot of benefits to other people, especially for charity purposes, we have converted this theme to Drupal 7 and provide it free of charge. No more asking, just go to the theme page and click on the Download tab, you will be able to get it.

This theme is now hosted on Drupal.org: http://drupal.org/project/fiddle

Slideshow is one of the most essential part of a website. It is basically the first thing that attracts your eyes when you visit a website. It is large enough and it has many cool transition effects that you can't help take a look at it. Having a long time working with Drupal, I collect and present in this article some of the best Drupal slideshow modules.

There are alot of Drupal slideshow modules, however, I only pick the modules which are in high usage, under active development and support Drupal 7. I downloaded and tested them all to see what are pros and cons of each module.

Now these are 12 best Drupal slideshow modules in my opinion: 

1. Flex Slider

Flex Slide becomes my "no brainer" choice for the slideshow module that I installed defaultly on all themes and web projects. It looks similar to Views slideshow, but it is far more advanced, it supports finger touch in mobile displays. Using this module, you can swift to change slides by your fingers when you see it on a mobil...
