The forms Drupal automatically generates have always suffered from the 'silo' effect, where one form field is stacked on top of the other. This often presents a usability challenge for people operating the system, and generally requires some additional level of theming for developers in a really mature site.

It's been about a week since returning from Drupalcon Paris, and the consensus at Trellon is that we wish it never had to end. Many of the members of our team have been going to Drupalcons for a long time, and this was definitely one of the most memorable ones on record.
Greetings from Drupalcon Paris!
At the core of all the hype around "social networking," and "social media," is the fact that "social" websites allow members of a website to connect with each and develop relationships without needing the administrators or content editors to mediate these connections. This from the "build and they'll come," school of design and strategy. In any case, even though Drupal is a fundamentally social platform, there is no user-to-user relationship support in the core of Drupal.
The weekend of June 27th and 28th saw over 200 Drupalers, including myself, flock to Denver for the annual DrupalCamp Colorado. Trellon was proud to sponsor the event. The fact that number of attendees doubled since last year shows the growth and momentum surrounding Drupal. This year, the event was combined with an Ubercamp- a gathering of Ubercart developers and enthusiasts.
I just found out that Drupalcamp Alberta which is taking place from 10-11th July at Lethbridge University is open for registrations. If you are planning to attend why not contact the organisers and propose a session as slots are still available, there is already a growing speaker list including Leisa Reichelt from the Drupal 7 usability project.
This is my first official Trellon blog post! It's been a good first few weeks. I have had a chance to work on some exciting projects. One of which involved using the awesome ApacheSolr Drupal Module which adds support for much better search performance and faceted search.
Nonprofit organizations have been implementing online stores for years. Product sales are an integral part of an organization's annual fundraising program. On average, nonprofits raise 33%+ of their annual budget around the holiday season. E-commerce is a valuable addition to any nonprofit's online fundraising program.
