[b]Q:[/b] How do I remove or delete the forum container entries from the 'Forums:' dropdown on the 'New Topic' form? If a user chooses a forum container rather than an actual forum and then tries to create a post an error message like 'The item [Container Name] is only a container for forums. Please select one of the forums below it.' is displayed - this is really annoying the client!
[b]Q:[/b] How can I programmatically invoke a view and retrieve its result/output data in PHP?

[b]Q:[/b] How can I programmatically create or add new Taxonomy Terms using PHP code?

[b]Q:[/b] How do I get the 'display id' ($display_id) of a view display so that I can pass it to
views_embed_view() when programmatically showing a view?
[b]A:[/b] View display ids follow a pattern like page_1, page_2, block_1, block_2 etc., depending on the display type - they do not follow the display's title (I spent a lot of time trying to plug in variations of the display name with no success!) The documentation for
views_embed_view() does not explain what the display id is or where it comes from....
In this gloomy climate it's great to see some good news - and the Irish Times reports [url=http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/breaking/2010/0416/breaking15.html]h... that Google has seen a sharp rise in its profits for the first quarter of this year - more evidence they say that the online advertising and technology sectors are bouncing back from the recession. It seems that revenue rose 28% which is the the biggest rate of growth since the third quarter of 2008.
[b]Q:[/b] How can I get the drupal [url=http://drupal.org/project/location]location[/url] module to display proper province/state/county names rather than just its code (e.g. Cork vs CK)?
[b]A:[/b] One quite easy way of achieving this is to override the default location display template, [i]location.tpl.php[/i] and get it to output the full province name.
