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.
Today, there exist many different options to digest content. One of the most popular options is Apple products like the iPhone and iPad. A unique thing about iOS is that they use specific icons when users want to add your website as a bookmark on their home screens. This icon is then used to quickly launch your website, similar to how you launch a bookmark in your browser.
Normally, websites don't have this icon available so what almost always ends up happening is Apple using a screen shot of the webpage as the icon. Having a generic screen shot can effect your branding message.
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.
The Drupal 7 Sweaver module makes it easy to change the style of your Drupal theme without having to write any CSS code or dig through any template files. The Sweaver module provides a simple to use designer toolbar that sits at the bottom of the page and allows you to instantly change the look of your Drupal theme.
The Drupal FullCalendar module makes it easy to build an interactive calendar using the power of Views. The Drupal FullCalendar module uses the JQuery FullCalendar plugin to make it easy to create an event calendar that allows event dates to be changed by drag and drop.

In this episode we look at the Imagefield Focus Module. This module adds another option to the image styles on a content type field. With this module you are able to specify a focus and crop area of your image. Once you have selected either or both of those areas the module then resizes and focuses on the certain area you specified. As you will see in the video, this module can be used when displaying a staff page showing only head shots and then loading to a full page where the entire image is shown all with the same image.
If you have been around CodeKarate.com for awhile you have noticed that our branding has been, well inconsistent. In less than a year, we have managed to swap in and out three different logos. Each logo I suppose tells a story of Code Karate and played an important role in getting Code Karate to where it is today. As we embark on what we believe to be a turning point in Code Karate we wanted to share with you our old logos and show off our new logo.
In episode 174, we look at a new way to display administrative messages. In other words, absolute messages is a module that changes how status, error and warning messages are displayed. For the most part, this is a nominal improvement, but does allow for hiding and showing of messages.
