Well, the first step was to set up a fresh Drupal 5.x (5.3) install.
Then, enabled core contact and profile modules (required by legacy salesforce module).
Then, copied 4.7 salesforce module into ./sites/all/modules, and edited salesforce.module and salesforce.install so that the function module_exist() became module_exists().
Then, enabled salesforce module. Install went ahead with the usual success messages (created tables, created profile fields).
Profile fields were created.
After DrupalCon Barcelona, I went to visit my family living in Southern California, so I have been out of the loop for a while (still haven't had time to write my conference wrap-up, after an incredible experience there).
I'm very excited, since I'll be leaving for the airport in a couple of hours.
I am so looking forward to my first personal encounter with the Drupal gang, it's really going to be great.
I am proud to be delivering two conferences:
As discussed on g.d.o, over a year ago, in Templates or XSLT: How to structure data transfers and client-side content generation? incorporating a format for data exchange is unresolved in Drupal (no easy array/object to Json and back, no standard array/object to XML and back for easy Ajax-Drupal invokation).
- Don't use a WYSIWYG editor ; since you will probably not be using the Full HTML input format, make sure you use an input format configured to allow the tags used in the code below.
- Create Gliffy drawing at the Gliffy site with your account.
- Make Gliffy drawing public.
- Grab url of the public drawing.
