Tabbed modules page

August10th

The modules page is already quite long with only the core modules but when you add views, cck and other modules you're going to use on your project it becomes unwieldy. I've created a little proof-of-concept module that turns the fieldsets on this page into tabs.

Dependency: http://drupal.org/project/jquery_ui and you need to download http://code.google.com/p/jquery-ui/downloads/list?can=3&q=1.6 unpack it in the jquery_ui directory and rename it to jquery.ui.

Stop Password Masking

August2nd

Entering passwords on a mobile phone is a pain since I'm never sure if I entered the correct letter. Now it seems that the standard password field is more of a pain than I thought. Jakob Nielsen tells everything in his alertbox: http://www.useit.com/alertbox/passwords.html
Usability suffers when users type in passwords and the only feedback they get is a row of bullets. Typically, masking passwords doesn't even increase security, but it does cost you business due to login failures.
