This post contains the information of upgrade.txt that is relevant to a minor Drupal core update. To see the full upgrade.txt that was formerly posted here, go here: Coding standards. Note: The Drupal Coding Standards apply to code within Drupal and its contributed modules.

Coding standards

This document is loosely based on the PEAR Coding standards. One overall note: comments and names should use US English spelling (e.g., "color" not "colour"). Drupal coding standards are version-independent and "always-current". All new code should follow the current standards, regardless of (core) version. Existing code in older versions may be updated, but doesn't necessarily have to be. Note: Do not squeeze coding standards updates/clean-ups into otherwise unrelated patches. See the Helper modules section at the bottom of this page for information on modules that can review code for coding standards problems (and in some cases, even fix the problems). Proposed changes to Drupal coding standards are first discussed in the Core issue queue. Contents of this Page # Indenting and Whitespace Use an indent of 2 spaces, with no tabs.

Colorbox - Adding a hyperlink to the photo's caption

Here's what I mean: My images are individual nodes so they do have a unique URL which contains the photos' description, comments and other information. I thought it would be easy to have the photo caption link to the node page but after a few hours of hacking away at the theme_colorbox_image_formatter() function, I realized that the image title (ie. caption) is being generated via JavaScript and it wouldn't be possible to link to the node (at least not when rendering the colorbox gallery via Views).
