Convert Bundles

New Drupal Modules - 12 June 2018 - 4:59am

This module adds drupal actions to convert entities from one bundle to another.

Content can be converted individually from a "Convert Bundle" tab on the node (or entity), selected nodes from the content administration page (/admin/content), or all entities of one bundle to another from the convert bundles config page (/admin/config/content/convert_bundles).

Since the convert bundles creates standard drupal actions for each type of entity, this module should work with other drupal modules such as rules and vbo.

Vardot: 6 Reasons Why Leading News and Media Networks are Using Drupal 8

Planet Drupal - 12 June 2018 - 4:03am
Ahmed Jarrar June 12, 2018

The world’s top news and media networks operate different sites to targeting a wide audience. They know that the only thing better than playing to a niche market is playing to all the niche markets --by running multiple websites tailor-made to fit the preferences of their different market segments, they play to win.

This kind of business model takes effort. Their content has to be distributed in multiple languages and reworked to fit different cultures. Naturally, it takes the right CMS to be able to pull this off while still managing to be user-friendly (after all, new content pops up every hour of a given day).

This article will cover the reasons why leading news and media outlets opt for Drupal 8, choosing the framework for all other alternatives in the market. Read on to find out why Drupal is trusted by 73% of the top news and media networks (including Al Jazeera, the Walt Disney Company, Time Inc., The Economist, Twenty-First Century, CBS, and Viacom) are using it.

 

Drupal 8 is Optimized for a 24 Hour News Cycle

 

The news cycle is both the greatest and worst thing to ever happen to news media. On one hand, it guarantees a steady stream of content, and therefore opportunities to earn from subscriptions and ad space. On the other hand, news media practitioners are almost always on the clock.

The freshness of a news item is time-sensitive and highly dependent on presentation (nobody wants to read a poorly-presented article, for instance). This is why a CMS like Drupal 8, which offers core features straight out of the box, is preferred among newsmen. For example, Drupal offers a rich media editor for the content creation stage of editorial work.

Drupal’s functionality also extends beyond the newsroom, with offerings such as monetization tools, social media integration, and near-universal 3rd party integration.

 

Drupal 8 is Easy to Personalize and Localize

 

Personalization is the key to engaging with an audience. Users want to see content that appeals to their interests and challenges them to discover new information. Naturally, timing is also a major factor; a news site that is aware of their readers’ most active times can take full advantage of things like push notifications, and special offers to exclusive content.

Beyond this, news agencies need to be able to push content that appeals to a person’s sense of locality --people are naturally drawn to things that might have an impact on their lives directly. While there’s no contesting the average person’s curiosity about distant happenings, top news and media networks know how to tap into the power of the parochial mindset.

Drupal enables personalization through a suite of powerful tools designed by its large community of developers. The platform makes it easy to connect readers to the kinds of content that align with their interests. Likewise, localizing content is a necessity made accessible through the platform --nurturing a loyal following is easier with Drupal 8, which allows your content to be relevant to events that take place in their immediate surroundings.

 

Drupal 8 Allows for Convenient Multi-Site Management

 

Running multiple websites is easy with Drupal. The platform allows businesses to run multiple websites grounded in the same code base. In plain English, you don’t need to build websites from scratch every time you want to expand your base of captive niches, and you can apply the same brand of aesthetic and experiential quality to your different digital holdings.

Drupal offers a multi-site management solution, complete with tutorials, that makes the job of expanding a news empire about as accessible designing a blog. Put this together with Drupal’s offer of news and media distribution solutions straight from the box, and sprawling online presences for news agencies can grow virtually overnight.

Drupal 8 is Secure

Security is a natural concern for any organization, and news companies are no exception. Nobody wants to lose credibility in the face of a cyber attack, or worse, have their subscribers’ data leaked.
One of the pivotal reasons why the media prefers Drupal is the long tradition of security that surrounds the platform. Between the swarms of developers working to close every loophole and patch over every possible entry point and the dedicated team of security specialists attached to Drupal, the framework does an excellent job of guaranteeing its users’ security.

 

Case Study: Uber Publisher & Al Jazeera

 

We mentioned Al Jazeera among the list of news agencies that rely on Drupal for their CMS needs. They were generous enough to agree to serve as an extensive case study on the official Drupal website, and some of the major takeaways do a good job of proving how the platform is a good fit for the industry.

The case study banks on the news agency’s growth after their tie-in with Drupal. It also describes how the agency met their myriad goals, including the unification of AJMN’s digital assets and workflows into a single interface. All told, the decision to opt for Drupal was a success for Al Jazeera.

Now, what the case study didn’t cover was Al Jazeera’s decision to opt for one Drupal-based solution in particular: Uber Publisher, a sub-profile of Varbase. Uber Publisher is a Drupal distribution that contains over a thousand out-of-the-box features and is continuously funded, supported, and improved by Vardot --and likely a contributing factor to Al Jazeera’s digital success. Its features for media marketing, automated tagging, easy authoring, and SEO make it a potent tool in the hands of a business of any size.

 

Conclusion

Drupal 8 is an optimal solution for news and media networks, regardless of their size. It’s affordable, convenient, and easy to both implement and maintain over the lifespan of a media agency. A good network would do well to tap into the functionality that Drupal has to offer, and a great one would scan the market for tools such like Vardot’s Uber Publisher; with any luck, they’ll meet the same digital success as Al Jazeera and its cohort (or exceed it).

Appnovation Technologies: Phases of Team Performance

Phases of Team Performance We should be aware that adding or removing resources on projects have a tendency to interrupt and impact the overall performance of a team. Certainly with the higher numbers represented within a team, switching of members would likely not feel a huge impact. But we can all see more often than not, when it’s in smaller groups, where any member represents ...

Drupal.org blog: What’s new on Drupal.org? - May 2018

Planet Drupal - 11 June 2018 - 3:39pm

Read our Roadmap to understand how this work falls into priorities set by the Drupal Association with direction and collaboration from the Board and community.

Announcements Change your git remote configuration

We will be deprecating the git remote format @git.drupal.org/project/;.git in favor of git@git.drupal.org/project/<yourproject>.git in preparation for changes to our developer tooling stack. If you used the <username>@ format for your git remotes, you should change your remote to the git@ format. You can use $ git remote set-url to make this change for existing repositories you have cloned.

We have updated the version control instructions on Drupal.org to reflect this change, and will be updating the git daemon to warn developers who are using the deprecated remote format.

Proposal: Improving Core's Relationship with Composer

In May, Mixologic from the Drupal Association engineering team worked with community members Mile23, Bojanz, Webflo, and others in the community to develop a proposal for improving Drupal Core's relationship with Composer.

In its simplest form, the proposal is to: Conceptually separate Drupal, the product, from Drupal's git repository, and provide a mechanism that creates a composer ready Drupal installation.

Going into early June, we've been circulating this proposal to the Core Committers, the Auto-Updates Initiative team, Contrib maintainers, Distribution maintainers etc.

Credit for non-code projects on Drupal.org

We're excited to announce that we've created a 'Community Projects' section in the Drupal.org issue queues. This section exists to record all the tremendous community labor exercised to promote the Drupal project in ways other than code. This format was pioneered by the Drupal Diversity and Inclusion group, who started recording their meeting minutes in the issue queues so they could provide contribution credit for attendees. This same model can be used by initiative coordinators, camp organizers, or any other Drupal community group that would like a place to recognize their work with the official contribution credit system.

The Contribution Credit system is one of the Drupal projects most successful innovations in the way that open source projects are managed, and it will continue to evolve and grow as time goes on.

Updates for GDPR

Are the words "We've updated our privacy policy" burned into your laptop screen yet? Well in May we did the same.  In particular, we've updated our Terms of Service, Privacy Policy, Digital Advertising Policy, and Git Contributor Agreement to clarify our compliance with the EU's GDPR. We also initiated a re-consent campaign for our marketing lists. If you have not re-consented to communications we strongly encourage you to do so

Launched the Customer Supporter program

Have you built great relationships with your Drupal customers? Help them contribute back to the project by becoming part of our Customer Supporter program.

Drupal.org Updates Self-nominations for the Drupal Association board are live

Each year one of the two community-held seats on the Drupal Association board comes up for election. We opened the self-nomination process for this year, and some passionate and dedicated members of the community have already stepped forward with their candidacy.

To learn more, you can view our portal for the 2018 Elections Process. Key dates to remember:

  • Self nominations: 1-11 June, 2018
  • Meet the candidates: 12-29 June 2018
  • Voting: 2-13 July, 2018
  • Votes ratified, Winner announced: 25 July, 2018
Better landing pages for Drupal's strategic initiatives

Did you know there are 12 active Drupal strategic initiatives right now?

To help the initiative coordinators promote this work, and recruit more open source contributors to the cause, we've given initiative coordinators new landing page tools. Check out the first initiative to use this landing page: the Admin UI and Javascript Modernization Initiative.

These tools are the first step in improving the project management tools available to initiative coordinators to help move the Drupal project forward.

Historical user and organization contribution data is now available.

Drupal.org user profiles show the last year's worth of contributions by users. We chose the one year window deliberately, to promote the importance of a user's more recent activity. However, seeing a user's complete contribution history can be valuable as well. We've recently added a link to the bottom of this view to display that history.

Similarly, organization profiles have shown the last 90 days of contributions by organization. Again, we chose this very deliberately to emphasize the  importance of recent and ongoing contribution. However, as with user accounts, these profiles now also include a link to the organization's complete contribution history. You can see an example of where to find this link below:

Expanded spam protections

After the sunsetting of Mollom in March of this year, we've been implementing a new set of tools to mitigate spam on Drupal.org. We expanded these protections in May, using a combination of bot detection, content analysis, rate limiting, and more to try and reduce the impact of spam attacks on Drupal.org. The less time the community spends wading through spam, the greater the velocity of the Drupal project.

And a Thank You

We'd also like to give a special shout out to contributor Wim Leers, for his incredibly kind 'Ode to the Drupal Association' about our work on the testing infrastructure. The nature of software engineering has a tendency to draw our attention to things that are broken, buggy, or unoptimized, and so when things are working well that success can sometimes feel invisible.

Fortunately, the Drupal community puts people first, and celebrates our collective success, and Wim's words are a tremendous example of that ethos.

Thank you, Wim - and thank you to everyone who takes the time to recognize the hard work and dedication of your fellow contributors.

———

As always, we’d like to say thanks to all the volunteers who work with us, and to the Drupal Association Supporters, who make it possible for us to work on these projects. In particular we want to thank:

If you would like to support our work as an individual or an organization, consider becoming a member of the Drupal Association.
