Drupal - The perfect frontend for document management

A common problem with Document Management Systems (DMS) is the fact that they don’t have a very user-friendly Interface. To build one, is a complex and time consuming process. Drupal can solve this problem by integrating with any document management system and provide a more intutive user experience.

Permission persistance for new files for a particular users

Story: Setting permission for directory for a particular user

Usually what we do when we want to give permission to folder (lets say our users name is abc for this example and directory name is test):

chown -R abc test

Problem: Does not set the permission to newly created files

Solution: setting the setgid bit so that any new file's (in test) owner is also user abc

sudo chmod -R u+s test


Programatically adding taxonomy terms as a Hierachy

We can programatically add taxonomies, thats easy but adding it as a child term is the hard part


We need to fist create a validation function dedicated for the term reference filed 

$form[TAG_FIELD_NAME]['#element_validate'][] = 'taxonomy_field_tags_validate';
