I know it's been awhile since I last posted, but I think we are all ready for some Drupal 8 videos! Let me know in the comments what you want to see posted in the future.
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.
If you are just getting started with Drupal and are looking for some help on learning Drupal 7. You have come to the right place.
Drush... what a wonderful web you weave. My guess is you have probably heard about this mysterious thing known as "Drush" and are looking to find out:
- What exactly is Drush?
- Is Drush something that will be useful for me?
The first one is an easy one. Drush is short for Drupal Shell and is a command line tool that makes interacting with your Drupal website a breeze.
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?
Awhile back I posted a video on setting up a Drupal sub-theme. If you want, you can check out that video here. I think that the video does an alright job of explaining the steps you have to take to get a sub-theme to work properly. I don't however think it provides enough of the setting up a sub-theme "meat" needed to begin. The saying goes, the devil is in the details. Personally, I never liked that quote, but it is fitting here.
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.
