Change the PDF template generated by TCPDF

Downloading PDF from a site has almost become a fashion to share some contents related to the site. This information can be a e-book, certificate, catalog, letter and the guess goes on. But one of my recent projects had the feature of allowing user(only authorized users) to download a certificate.

Add Placeholders

Add Placeholders to Captcha input field

HTML 5 has been encompassed with many novel attributes, one of which is the Placeholders.

The Colorbox-Node holds the ability to display nodes in overlay effect, but it needs huge template and jQuery level customization.


How to display views result count in Drupal 7

Views one of the prevailing modules in Drupal. It has the competence to dwindle manual work of pulling the data from Drupal table and formatting them to meet our needs. Most of the developers might have known about the filter and the sort criterion in the views, but only a few know the exact way to display the current items and total result count in this view. Does this requires acquaintance with coding? Apparently yes, but not as tedious as one would imagine. All it needs is a single line PHP print statement in view's template file.
