Daily Dose of Drupal Episode #208

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!

Drupal 8 coming (queue suspenseful music)! One of the HUGE things with Drupal 8 is this term called "headless Drupal". Don't worry the Drupal drop isn't in any danger of losing precious head real estate, rather headless Drupal refers to using a different client-side (front-end) framework then the back end Drupal framework. From what I have read the goal is to have Drupal become the preferred back-end content management system.

Daily Dose of Drupal Episode #192

We kept things simple for this episode of the DDoD. The options element module uses Javascript to create an easy way to create radio button and checkbox options for fields on a Drupal content type. Before this module you had to add key|value for each options you wanted. Using this module the key and value is broken down into two fields making it easier to distinguish the difference.

Just like your grandparents, the Superfish menu module is an oldy but a goodie. Since 2010, Superfish has been helping site owners implement the infamous dropdown menu. Over the years Superfish has been improved to include various features for touch screens, and responsive needs.

Daily Dose of Drupal Episode #94

In this Daily Dose of Drupal episode, we really go for a double dose as we look at two modules that have very similar functionality. We first look at the Drupal 7 Scroll to Top module and see how it can be used to create a nice button that scrolls to the top of the page using JavaScript. We then look at the Drupal 7 Back to Top module to see how it differs. These modules do different things but they have different settings/configuration options that make them unique.
