Using Google Sheets to Capture Webhook Data
If you've pulled data from an API, you know how useful they are for retrieving information. But if you need that data pushed to your app as it happens, webhooks are even better. Webhooks are an event-driven message sent to a URL of your choice, and they are offered by many services that have an API.
Integrate Advanced Custom Fields with The Events Calendar Community Events
Getting Advanced Custom Fields to work with Modern Tribe's The Events Calendar is simple - just create the ACF fields or groups, assign them to "tribe_events" post type, and the new fields appear in the event add/edit form.
But is it possible to get them to show up on the front-end forms for The Events Calendar's fantastic Community Events? And more importantly, does the data from those fields get saved to the database?

Create and Email PDF files from Drupal Webforms
Set up automated, professional, formatted PDFs from Drupal webforms using Views and Rules - and have them emailed once created.
This tutorial shows how to create a high-resolution PDF file from a Drupal webform. (The same basic concept can be used to create PDF files from nodes as well - you just won't need the Webform Rules module.)
Display a Google Map in an iFrame on a Drupal Website
Getting a Google Map to display in an iframe on a Drupal site means following a very specific set of steps. Here's one solution, using the iframe module.
Embedding a Google Map via an iframe makes it very convenient for your viewers. The map displays well, and has helpful links: Directions, View in Google Maps, etc. This is tricky to do using standard Drupal input formats, but is made much easier with the iFrame module - which allows you to create an iframe field on any content type.
