Drupal Admin Info

Hours/Address in header

If you need to change the address or hours in the header, go to the Site Info page and change the "slogan" to the text you want. Normally it says:

1075 American Pacific, Suite C, Henderson, NV 89074
Monday - Friday 6pm - 10pm | Saturday 3pm - 10pm

Traffic light in header

See stand alone page


If you need to change the home page to point to a new page for any reason, go to the Site Info page and change the "Default Home Page" to a new or existing page.

Past Events Page

On this page we show the past events. This uses identical code to the homepage (see below), except it has a call to $meetup->get_past_meetup_events('synshop') instead of $meetup->get_future_meetup_events('synshop')

Homepage Meetup Events

Currently the homepage uses a page that has not-Drupal normal PHP inline on the page. It uses MeetupEvents to show cached Meetup Events.

A cron job is run by root every minute to ensure users don't fire the caching:

# every minute hit the home page so the cache for this is fresh and users aren't refreshing them
* *     *   *  *        /usr/bin/curl --silent -o /dev/null https://synshop.org/Past-Events
* *     *   *  *        /usr/bin/curl --silent -o /dev/null https://synshop.org/

And the page's PHP/CSS/HTML looks like this:

    #address-text a {background-color:red; color:white; text-decoration: none;
font-size: 25px;}
    #breadcrumb {
        display: none;
    /* DANGER!! This CSS assumes the first node-article will be the wrapper "future events" and should be hidden.
    It might hide a real event if you're not careful! */
    /* Thanks  https://stackoverflow.com/a/8539107 */
    .node-header, .comment_forbidden {
        display: none;
    .meetup-date  {
        display: block !important;
    .node .cancelled  {
