Drupal - Image Field Caption

In Drupal 7, an image field comes with alt and title fields for your content type's image(s). The Image Field Caption module adds an extra text area to enter caption text or html for image field descriptions.

Drupal - Use Browser Inspector to Check All Check Boxes on a Form

In Drupal 7, on a content type edit screen, I needed to set the available menus for that content type. Some sites only have a few menus, other sites (particulary ones with lots of Organic Group menus) will have tons of menus to choose from.

    'style_name' => 'my_custom_image_style',
    'alt' => 'Alternate Text',
    'title' => 'Title Text',
print $image;

This would work if you had an image style specified at admin/config/media/image-styles that was called 'my_custom_image_style'.

Drupal - Hide the "Administrative overlay" Checkbox on the User Edit Form

Do you need to hide the 'Use the overlay for administrative pages' checkbox in the 'Administrative overlay' fieldset on the user edit form? Then look no further my child, this can be accomplished with hook_form_alter and an #after_build in your custom module.

Drupal - Commerce Price Range Navigation

While building a Drupal 7 Commerce site, I needed a price range navigation block so customers could search for products within a specific set of price ranges.

Here's an example screen shot:
