Have you ever been asked to log into a website while you are viewing a page? And after doing so you get redirected to some page other than the one you were reading? This is an obvious and rather common usability problem. When this happens people lose track of what they were doing and some might not even bother to go back. Let's find out how to solve this in Drupal 8.
The Global Training Days is an initiative coordinated by the Drupal Association to introduce new people to the wonderful world of Drupal. The initiative is about providing free or low-cost training to facilitate people gaining familiarity with Drupal in just a day. Depending on the format, attendees can leave the workshop with a website already built.
IndieWebCamp is a movement dedicated to growing the independent web, or IndieWeb: a people-focused alternative to the corporate web. The movement is called IndieWebCamp because it is built in large part over an on-going series of two-day camps. At these camps and online, the community emphasizes principles over particular projects or software— any web site can be a part of the IndieWeb. Here's how to take a first step into the IndieWeb with Drupal.
Sometimes we need a Drupal installation for a quick test of a module, theme, or feature that we are working on. You can have a LAMP stack installed locally or, as we do at Agaric, use virtual machines. In both cases, it can take a considerable amount of time to make the required configuration to install Drupal. It is possible to avoid all that by leveraging Drupal’s support for SQLite and using PHP’s built in web server. Let me show you how to easily create a disposable installation with a few drush commands.
Here at Agaric we work a lot with install profiles and, more often than not, we have to provide default content. This is mostly taxonomy terms, menu links, and sometimes even nodes with fields. Recently, I have started to use Migrate to load that data from JSON files.
