There are two really useful checklist modules in Drupal:
In this video, taken from our Drupal 7 Security class, Robert introduces the Security Review module. He shows you how to fix some of the most common errors found by the module, such as "Base URL is not set in settings.php" and "Some files and directories in your install are writable". Even if you think your site is safe, give the Security Review module and you may well find something you missed.
Drupal 8 is here and ready to use right now.
However, not all of the contributed modules are available yet. That includes the Backup and Migrate module, which was the most popular way to backup and restore Drupal 7 sites.
These four videos, sponsored by the excellent team at InMotion Hosting, offer a backup and restore solution that you can use with Drupal 8 today.
In mid-January we held a webinar with Acquia, explaining how to train your team on Drupal 8.
This was an interesting webinar to run because it ended up being pretty different from our planning.
First, we were able to make a very cool surprise announcement. Watch to the end of the webinar for the big reveal.
One of our users asked for a way to customize the layout of his Drupal 7 webforms.
Webform Layout is a module that extends Webform's features by providing more control over the design.
In this post, I'll share with you how to use Webform Layout module. Let's start...
Entity Reference Views are one way you can make life easier for Drupal content creators.
Normally, when people are creating content on your site, each field consists of a single box with a single data point. For example, in a list of people, you might get only the person's name.
Entity Reference Views allows you to provide far more information. For example, you can add photos and personal details to your list of people.
Openlayers' flexibility makes it a very useful option. For example, an OSTraining member wanted to use Openlayers because he needed to build a site in China, where Google Maps is blocked.
