I've been pretty busy the past several months in my free time porting my drupal contrib theme, Gratis, to Drupal 8. The port is going well and I've got most things working as they did in the Drupal 7 version but the process has involved a radical reworking of theme's architecture
I get great ideas from users of both my Drupal contrib themes, Bamboo and Gratis. Typically a user will write to me and ask, "how do I do x" with your theme?
A typical use case for Entity Reference and one that I'll use as an example is if you have news stories on your site and you want your editors to be able to pick a specific related blog post and show it on a news story node.
It's hard to believe I've been using both Features and Drush for a few years but didn't know you can create, update and manage your features all with Drush.
I've been pretty busy these days with a few different projects and a number of them required a user friendly way (editors not needing to know how to code) of implementing captions for images within content areas.
An overview of an eclectic mix of modules I've found really useful lately for some projects I've been working on with a few examples and use cases.
Lately, I've been designing and developing photo galleries for both clients and myself. I thought it would be nice to share some methods and practices that I've learned. This tutorial will focus on creating node photo grid galleries that can either be stand alone or attached to other content types.
Drupal 7 has an option to turn on a default View for Taxonomy term pages via the contrib module, Views. This is generally pretty good but if you want highly designed pages with additional custom fields than what the default view renders, you could simply update and customize this view but there's a few drawbacks.
In the course of a day as a Drupal Themer, I need to code a wide variety of functionality into a given site I'm working on. I try to follow Drupal best practices as well and this usually means implementing theme preprocess functions; these become key to a Themer's toolbox.
In my last post, I discussed my new photography site I'm building and theming with Drupal. The site is responsive and I've been searching for an ideal responsive touch friendly multi-level menu. I looked at and tried several jQuery plugins, CSS3 styles and a few Drupal Modules but nothing was quite right.
