It's important to check links on your site to make sure they're working. Sometimes when URLs get updated, some links are forgotten. Manually checking a site for all links can be labor intensive and time consuming.
That's where Drupal's Link Checker module comes in. It's an excellent module that saves you a lot of time. This tutorial will help you to get started with it.
There are multiple different ways to design a Drupal site. You can code your theme, or you can use modules such as Panels, Context and Display Suite.
I'm reluctant to answer the question of which solution is "best", but we do often get asked about which approach Drupal site-builders should use.
In this video, Robert Ring compares Context and Panels, explaining different situations in which he'd choose to use each module. If you want to learn more, we have full classes on Context and Panels.
Last week the Drupal 8 community hit an important milestone with the first Release Candidate for Drupal 8.
What does "Release Candidate" mean? It means that this version is ready to be considered as the official release for Drupal 8. If no more critical bugs are found, then this will indeed become Drupal 8.0.
This is an important milestone for OSTraining too. This week we're getting started on the 200 videos we'll release for free.
When you login to a Drupal site, the very first link you will see in the admin bar is "Dashboard".
Even though it's the first link, few people seem to use it, perhaps because they don't fully understand what it does. Perhaps as a result, the Dashboard won't be included in Drupal 8.
In this video, taken from our Better Drupal Administration class, Robert explains what the Dashboard does. It really can be a helpful control panel for users of small sites.
