Media View Add-ons

New Drupal Modules - 27 April 2018 - 8:54am

Media View Add-ons provides a Views Plugin which adds an additional column to the Media View (/admin/content/media). The plugin provides an additional "dummy" field to the default media View and makes uses of the media image ID to generate a list of links to node edit pages for each media image row.

Drupal blog: Promoting the Drupal community from within the Drupal software

Planet Drupal - 27 April 2018 - 8:29am

This blog has been re-posted and edited with permission from Dries Buytaert's blog. Please leave your comments on the original post.

Jacob Rockowitz recently posted a blog post with ideas about how we can make Drupal more welcoming.

What I found most interesting about Jacob's blog post is that he makes the point that every WordPress site (not WordPress.org) has an 'About WordPress' section in the administration backend that shows both WordPress' values and contributor credits.

This could be an interesting approach for Drupal and is an idea worth exploring. Today, Drupal's values and principles and Drupal's contribution credits live on Drupal.org, but not in the Drupal software itself. When done well, it's probably one of the most impactful ways to educate people and organizations that are new to Drupal about our community and open source. And by having credits in the software, we'd inspire more people and organizations to contribute back. It's an interesting idea.

Editor's note: There is a proposed initiative in the Drupal core ideas queue for adding a channel for project communication in core.

Dries Buytaert: How Drupal influences other Open Source projects

Planet Drupal - 27 April 2018 - 7:23am

If you are interested in Open Source and have some time this weekend, watch Steve Francia's DrupalCon keynote called "Drupal and the secret of my success". Steve has been involved in Open Source for over 20 years, and has had the unique opportunity to lead three of the most successful Open Source companies in history. He was Chief Developer Advocate of MongoDB, Chief Operator of Docker, and now he is the Product Lead for the Go programming language at Google. Watch the video to hear Steve's personal story about how Drupal influenced his career, in addition to influencing MongoDB, Docker and Go. I don't often get emotional, but I had to wipe a few tears away during his presentation. Thanks for telling your story and being an inspiration, Steve!

Mobomo: Key Drupal Taxonomy: Part 2

Planet Drupal - 26 April 2018 - 10:35am

In our previous blog post, we gave a brief intro to some terms that we believe are necessary to understand the basics of Drupal.   Here we have what we believe to be the next round of terms that we consider necessary to understanding those basics. Recently, we had the opportunity to assist Matrix AMC in migrating from Drupal 6 to Drupal 8.  They were unable to use their website because of the version of Drupal that their website was hosted on was out of date and no longer supported by the Drupal community. While these specific terms are consistent across Drupal versions, they are crucial to understanding the importance of being up to date in with your version of Drupal.      

 

  1. Block– the boxes visible in the regions of a Drupal website.
    1. Most blocks (e.g. recent forum topics) are generated on-the-fly by various Drupal modules, but they can be created in the administer blocks area of a Drupal site.
  2. Region-  defined areas of a page where content can be placed. Different themes can define different regions so the options are often different per-site. Basic regions include:
    1. Header
    2. Footer
    3. Content
    4. Left sidebar
    5. Right Sidebar
  3. Roles- a name for a group of users, to whom you can collectively assign permissions. There are two predefined, locked roles for every new Drupal installation:
    1. Authenticated User- anyone with an account on the site.
    2. Anonymous User- those who haven’t yet created accounts or are not logged in.
  4. WYSIWYG- What You See Is What You Get; An acronym used in computing to describe a method in which content is edited and formatted by interacting with an interface that closely resembles the final product.
  5. Book- a set of pages tied together in a hierarchical sequence, perhaps with chapters, sections, or subsections.  Books can be used for manuals, site resource guides, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), etc.
  6. Breadcrumbs- the set of links, usually near the top of the page, that shows the path you followed to locate the current page.
    1. The term breadcrumbs is borrowed from Hansel and Gretel, who left crumbs of bread along their path so they could find their way back out of the forest.
  7. Form mode- this is a way to customize the layout of an entity’s edit form.
  8. Multisite- a feature of Drupal that allows one to run multiple web sites from the same Drupal codebase.
  9. Patch- a small piece of software designed to update or fix problems with a computer program or its supporting data.
    1. This includes fixing bugs, replacing graphics and improving the usability or performance.
  10. User- the user interacting with Drupal. This user is either anonymous or logged into Drupal through its account.

Chapter Three: Recruit more effectively with Taleo-integrated Drupal

Planet Drupal - 26 April 2018 - 10:07am

Most corporate websites have a Career section where people can find out what jobs are open. These sections can range from just a few standing openings to hundreds of vacant positions across multiple job types that open and close frequently. Larger companies traditionally use HR software systems to manage this ebb and flow.

One popular and powerful HR system is Taleo. Many companies simply link offsite to the taleo.com listing, which serves as the company’s only place to see and apply to openings. Other times, that same listing gets embedded on the company’s career section. As you can see in the user journey below for our client MemorialCare, this got the job done, but didn’t really convey a company’s brand or culture.

Jeff Geerling's Blog: Drupal Camp St. Louis is taking a break for 2018

Planet Drupal - 26 April 2018 - 9:57am

The St. Louis Drupal Users Group has hosted a Drupal Camp in the 'Gateway to the West' for four years (since 2014), but this year, the organizers have decided to take a year off, for various reasons. Our camp has grown a little every year, and last year we even increased the scope and usefulness of the camp even more by adding a well-attended training day—but life and work have taken precedence this year, and nobody is able to take on the role of 'chief organizer'.

All is not lost, however! There are other great camps around the Midwest, and this year we're directing everyone to our northern neighbors, in Iowa: DrupalCorn Camp is going to be held in Des Moines, Iowa, from September 27-30, 2018!

Dries Buytaert: Promoting the Drupal community from within the Drupal software

Planet Drupal - 26 April 2018 - 8:57am

Jacob Rockowitz recently posted a blog post with ideas about how we can make Drupal software more welcoming.

What I found most interesting about Jacob's blog post is that he compares WordPress' approach of promoting its values and giving credit with Drupal's. He makes the point that every WordPress site (not WordPress.org) has an 'About WordPress' section in the administration backend that shows both WordPress' values and contributor credits.


This could be an interesting approach for Drupal and is an idea worth exploring. Today, Drupal's values and principles and Drupal's contribution credits live exclusively on Drupal.org, but not in the Drupal software itself. When done well, it's probably one of the most impactful ways to educate people and organizations that are new to Drupal about our community and open source. And by having credits in the software, we'd inspire more people and organizations to contribute back. It's an interesting idea.

Acquia Developer Center Blog: Decoupling Drupal 8 Core: Retrieving and Manipulating Content with Core REST

Planet Drupal - 26 April 2018 - 8:11am

As we saw in a previous installment of Experience Express, because Drupal has a HAL-compliant REST API available out of the box with minimal configuration, you can easily provision an API that can immediately be employed to consume content entities and manipulate them from other applications. Now that we have successfully exposed content entities as REST resources, used Entity Access to govern permissions, and customized the formats and authentication mechanisms in use by the core REST API, it is now time to move into actually retrieving and manipulating that data.
