CPE Success

Emma did so well at her first CPE trial. RAT hosted the trial, and we had a great time all weekend. With a one ring trial, the atmosphere was relaxed. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Emma earned 4 Qs out of 6 runs. She ran in Level 3 (good starting point if you have already competed in other venues), and I entered her as veteran. That means only 12 inch jumps.

Games like Wildcard and Jackpot were great. Emma was a little uncontrollable early Saturday morning, but her decision making worked just fine and we qualified anyway. By her third run that day, she was listening very well.

We really liked Colors. The course is short and the one we picked had a tricky opening but a lovely, flowing finish. Emma is best at handling the tricky bits first, then just let her go (as compared to letting her go first, then asking her to tighten up). She earned 2nd place in Colors!

It was great fun and I highly recommend CPE trials especially for older and younger dogs.

Setup an RSS Feed

I wanted a couple of my views to offer RSS feeds. It's really simple.

Go to Administer - Views and click edit next to the view you want to add an RSS feed. Then setup an Argument: RSS: RSS Feed Selector and make sure it set to "Display All Values" and that's it.

The full instructions are at, but it took me awhile to find them:

The node says it's for 4.7, but it works just fine in 5.1

Pager On Top

When viewing a Page View, basic navigation is at the bottom of the page. I wanted this same "1 2 3 next>> last>>" to display at the top and the bottom of the main content area. It was easy enough. In page.tpl.php,
I added:

<?php print theme_pager() ?>

right above print $content; et voila any Page Views now have the pager on the top and the bottom of the page.

Do you need an Email Newsletter?

One of Yvonne Sans Luis Design's clients did. RUF Designs took Yvonne's design and implemented it in XHTML/CSS for a quick turnaround. Tested in several mail clients, the newsletter was a real hit for the client.
