Drupal: how to re-order Scald Contexts editor-friendly

I use the Scald module on some projects to add images to a CKEditor powered text field. I like the Scald module very much.

Drupal CKEditor Custom Text Styles

Usually you should be able to add the ‘Styles’ button to your prefered CKEditor Profile by drag’n’drup in the ‘appearance’ section of the corresponding CKEditor profile.

Drupal: SCALD modal window loading problem [solved]

The SCALD modal window ‘loading’ wasn’t loading. It took a couple of days (hours) and an embarassing long discussion on drupal.org to find the error – which was not an error.

Drupal 7 node gallery with plupload but no upload [solution]

Another note-to-self – and maybe / hopefully somebody else might also find this note useful… The problem: The Drupal 7 module “node gallery” installed just fine and is running well.
