Show taxonomy terms Grouped By Taxonomy Parent

Lately I was assigned with the task to display all terms assigned to a node, grouped by their parent. To better explain this, let's say for example that we have the Vocabulary 1 assigned to Content Type A, with the following terms:
 
Parent 1
-- term 1
-- term 2
-- term 3
Parent 2
-- term 4
-- term 5
Parent 3
-- term 6
-- term 7
etc. 
 
Nodes from Content Type 1 have various terms assigned. For example, node/143 has the following terms assigned: term 2, term 4, and terms 6 & 7.
 

Show Blocks only on user's pages and not on login, edit etc. pages

If we need to display a block in user pages, and not in /user/login or /user/register etc pages, we need to field in some custom php code under the Page specific visibility settings, we select the radio "Show if the following PHP code returns TRUE (PHP-mode, experts only)" and we fill in the following code:

PHP Fatal error: Class 'Console_Table' not found in... drush error

After a fresh drush installation, drush status returned this error message:

[konordo@konordo ~]# drush status
<strong>PHP Fatal error:  Class 'Console_Table' not found in drush/path/drush.inc on line 955 </strong>

The solution was to install the php pear extension

How to install drush

In this example, we will install drush under the directory /usr/local/share/. The path is not really important as long as you adjust the following commands accordingly.

If the directories do not exists, we create them:

sudo mkdir /usr/local/share/
sudo mkdir /usr/local/bin/

And now it time to download and extract drush. Make sure that you have the latest version available and replace the url in the command accordingly.

We also create a symlink so that we can use it everywhere without typing the parent path all the time...



Views: Display all nodes that have sibling terms (i.e. terms under the same parent) .

While working on an extra requirement for metalera.gr, we needed to do the following:

When viewing node/xxx, we would like to display all nodes that have terms that belong to the same parent as the one we currently visit. Let's say for example, that we have the following parent:

Colors

--red

--blue

--green

Node/xxx has the term green assigned. We need our view to display all nodes that have red or blue as well. 

To achieve that, we first create a new view, then:
