Drupal Quiz Module- Export Points instead of text answers for multiple choice questions.

This view will allow you to export the "Point_awarded" field.

View needs to look exactly like below based off the "results" view in Quiz Module under Quiz tab> Results button click the sprocket.

 

Below is the "View" view (haha)  

 

Drupal 7 Block that displays specific field belonging to displaying node using Views

I used this to display downloadable files that belonged to the node displaying.

Drupal 7- My WYSIWYG text Editor disappeared! When I go back to edit content in body field!

This drove me crazy.  Check the text in your body field, or whatever text field and see if you have the word "select" in your content text.  Sometimes it identifies it as a SQL injection.  Use a different word than "select" in your text.  
Not sure if there's a work around but I use a synonym for it in my content.

I am assuming you know how to create a view. 

Groups filters in views Drupal 7 for webforms

 

Here's an overview of the view completed:

Stop Drupal 7 from banning friendly IPs - Drupal 7 IP Blocked

Drupal will block a user's IP if too many attemps are made to access the Drupal 7 site within a set amount of time.

 

To change this default setting (5 times) add the following lines to your settings.php file.

$conf['user_failed_login_user_limit'] = PHP_INT_MAX;
$conf['user_failed_login_user_window'] = 5;

Good replacement for Facebook Autopost- Drupal 7

First create the rss feed in Drupal. I used views to do it:

Anchor links do not scroll in chrome- Drupal 7 and Chrome

Anchor tags must look like the below for Chrome to reconginize them and scroll.  (Need to have the <p> or <div> tag, the title should go between the <a> tags.)

Disable a field in the User "Edit" page. Drupal 7 Hook alter and custom user registration fields.

I need to allow users to add information during registration but not allow them to access those fields to edit after the new user account was saved. (Data collection project, if they went into their profiles and changed that data it would mess up our numbers.)

Here's the Hook alter code. :)
