The Drupal 8 Rabbit Hole Module allows you to control what happens when someone views an entity page. Before you ask why this might be important, let me clarify, it's not a layout tool. It's a simple module that allows you to easily redirect or prevent users from viewing specific types on entities on your site.
The Drupal 8 Flex Slider Module allows you to use the Flex Slider library to build out slideshows on your Drupal website. This video covers how to get Flexslider to integrate with Drupal views as well as Drupal fields.
The Drupal 8 Editor Advanced Link Module allows you to specify additional attributes when creating links in your content. This makes it easy to add a CSS class, an ID, open the link in a new window, or even specify a rel="nofollow" tag. The module is very easy to use, but there is a small trick to getting it set up. Watch the video to see how it's done and start customizing your links in no time!
The Drupal 8 Editor File Upload Module is a great module for allowing your content editors to upload files directly in your website content. If you have ever needed to upload a file, and then include a link to that file, then the Editor File Upload module will be useful. Rather than having to upload the file manually using FTP or through another module, then having to go back to create a link in your content to that file, this module lets you do it all in one step.
The Drupal 8 Image Widget Crop Module is a handy module for allowing your content editors on your website to crop images after they upload them. Have you ever uploaded an image on a website and had it automatically crop the image for you in a way that just looks wrong? This module solves that problem!
In this episode, we cover the Drupal 8 Contact Storage Export Module. This episode covers a module that adds additional functionality to the Contact Storage Module (which we covered in episode 213). This module allows you to export your contact form submissions to a CSV file. It's a simple module that serves a very specific purpose. If you need to export your contact form submissions, this is how you do it!
In this episode, we cover the Drupal 8 Linkit Module. This module extends the link functionality of your Drupal 8 WYSIWYG editor (like CKeditor) to make it easier to link to other pages on your website. Rather than having to go find a page on your website you would like to link to, copy the URL, and paste it in the link field, this module allows you to do it in one step!
In this episode, we cover the Drupal 8 Contact Storage Module. This module extends the Drupal 8 core contact module by saving the contact entries in the database. This makes it easy to go back and view, edit, or delete any of the contact form submissions on your Drupal 8 site. It's a handy little module that can save you from needing to install a more fully featured form module (like Webform or Entity Forms).
Have you ever wanted to create a page on your Drupal 7 website and send it over to a friend or group of people… but you don’t want the general public to see it? You could always set it up so they just log in, but that’s an extra step and not all of the people you want to send this to have user accounts on your site.
Are you testing your site? Until recently, we weren’t and it was costing us. Every element on your website should have a meaning and if you aren’t testing it against something else how can you be sure that you are maximizing your results!
What if you had to go build a Drupal site on a remote island without WiFI? Yes that's right, no internet connection at all? What modules would you bring with you?
Normally, I would do this video style, but I'm a wildcard people and today we write! Thanks to one of our Code Karate supporters, Pieter, I am going to walk you through how to use Drupal views, date and content types to automatically hide/show nodes based on date field. Let's get started.
Taking a content type and displaying it in a Drupal View is core to any Drupal website. If you are new to views, you can check out our Drupal views video. As you venture into views you will learn hundreds of ways to manipulate content to change the way the end user is able to interact with the content. To help enhance this, you can use the Views Isotope module. This module uses the jQuery isotope library to dynamically filter views content. As the title states, it’s pretty fancy.
Sometimes you have a situations where your normal Drupal administration menu just won’t cut it. Maybe you have someone that needs to perform some administrative tasks on your site such as managing content and comments, or perhaps something more complex such as managing the Drupal blocks. This person might be a technical wizard, but there is also a good chance that they might not be. In fact, they might be the person in the office that calls you when their “computer is broke”.
In this episode of the Daily Dose of Drupal, we looking at the ToDo Filter Module. As I mention in the video this is one of those modules that probably isn’t going to wow you and honestly won’t be used a lot. However, this module does have its place in your Drupal module repertoire.
In this episode we cover an overview of the Drupal 7 Views module. The Drupal Views module is probably the most popular Drupal module and is installed on almost every Drupal 7 website I build. It’s so popular in fact that it’s included in Drupal 8 by default.
In this episode we cover the Drupal Subuser module. This module makes it easy to allow your users to manage other users on your site. This works great if you want to allow a site manager to be able to add in users of a specific role, but not have access to the full Drupal User Administration pages.
Sometimes you need to display something dynamically based on the page the user is currently viewing. Sure you can accomplish some of this with blocks, or even just panels, but sometimes it's nice to have the best of both worlds.
The Drupal 7 Interval Field module provides a simple way to create a duration or interval field on any Drupal 7 field-able entity. A common use for this might be on a content type that generally keeps track of dates. Sometimes it easier to summarize a group of dates to a user or visitor using an interval field rather than selecting multiple dates.
An interval field is useful for keeping track of data such as:
- 1 of 3
