Stalski Hooking drupal s’ logout button with jquery

In a project I am working on, I had to hook the login and logout of drupal, so that an extra action would be taken. More specific to my case: when logging in and/or out of a drupal, the same action should be taken for another session to a second server.

As drupal login and logout are buttons that are built in Drupal, It had to work around it. The most common solution would be to add an extra class attribute to the links that performed the logout. This class then could be triggered with Jquery to override the logout button to handle things differently. You could think of it as branching the logout task. In stead of going to a different page to perform logout, we call two pages with Jquery’s AJAX methods.

How to save a node with multiple taxonomy terms

I did some quick research on how to save taxonomy attached to your node. In my case I needed it in a page where I create 3 dummy nodes. This post explains how you can approach attaching several taxonomy terms (from different vocabulary) while calling node_save. You could avoid using this function and work with the taxonomy instead, but I prefer the node way.
