Agiledrop.com Blog: AGILEDROP: DrupalCon Nashville, here I come!

Planet Drupal - 3 April 2018 - 5:22pm
I was not planning to go to DrupalCon this year due to so many things going on at the company, but with a little delegation effort, I will be able to go.  I would not like to miss this one, to be honest. So here is what I am looking forward to in Nashville.   Meeting new people DrupalCons in the US are the biggest Drupal events, and even if you are an active community member for 11 years like I am, you still see a lot of new faces. Developers are generally more on the introvert side, so you don't see so much intentional networking like on some other events, but don't hesitate to ask the… READ MORE

Chromatic: A Testing Environment for Every Pull Request

Planet Drupal - 3 April 2018 - 1:08pm

At Chromatic, when we are collaborating with our clients on a website or product, we typically work in an agile, iterative process. As part of that process, it is important for all stakeholders to be able to easily review and approve changes to a site as they are being made, but this can frequently be a pain point. There are often members of the team who are less technical, or may not have a development instance of the website, or an interest in checking out git branches. Frankly, even for users that are willing and able, this process is often an inefficient use of everyone’s time.

David Lohmeyer's Blog: Nesting module-defined menu links in Drupal 8

Planet Drupal - 3 April 2018 - 9:03am

When you provide a module-defined menu link in Drupal 8, there is some great documentation on how to add a menu link on Drupal.org. This gets into how to provide a menu link with YAML. In a lot of cases, you might want to nest this menu link under another item. This is especially the case if you were providing a menu link for something in the main menu of your site.

Drupal Association blog: DrupalCon Nashville Board Meetings

Planet Drupal - 3 April 2018 - 6:32am

DrupalCon Nashville is right around the corner! Part of the week includes board meetings. Below is a summary of their activities and agendas. We hope you will join the public board meeting in person or virtually.

Board Retreat

The Drupal Association Board of Directors will convene over the weekend from April 7-8, 2018 to hold discussions based on the Executive Director and committee chairs’ updates. The board will also discuss funding models to pursue that will increase investments that the Drupal Association can make to accelerate Drupal adoption. We are also going to review and discuss the principles and values that Dries Buytaert is creating for the community and will be sharing in his keynote.

Additionally, the board is hosting a two hour discussion on Drupal’s governance structure. To properly inform this discussion, the board invited representatives from groups that are part of Drupal governance as well as representatives of groups who are not currently part of governance. Together, we will explore what is working and ways to evolve Drupal governance that improve support for the Drupal project.

Public Board Meeting

The Board of Directors will hold an open board meeting on Wednesday, April 11 from 11:45 - 1:00 pm CT in the Nashville Convention Center in Room 103A (lunch will be served!). We welcome you to attend in person or virtually.

The agenda will include an executive update as well as program updates from staff. There will be 10 minutes for the community to ask the board and staff questions.

Mediacurrent: A Local’s Guide to Drupalcon Nashville

Planet Drupal - 3 April 2018 - 6:04am

While everyone has a busy week attending Drupalcon sessions and events (be sure to check out Mediacurrent’s afterparty) , if you find some extra time, Nashville has an eclectic mix of activities and places to go. Whether you're looking for great music in none-other than "Music City" or you're looking for a nice place to relax and grab a bite to eat, take advice from a Nashville and check out my list of Nashville's must-see spots. When you're ready to take a break from drupalin', check out these suggestions and engulf yourself in the Nashville culture. 

Music

Image source: Wikipedia 

Whether you enjoy country music or prefer other genres, Nashville offers something for every taste.  Some nights you might need to venture outside downtown for more rock and roll. If music is at the top of your Nashville bucket list, here are nine spots you won’t want to miss:  

 

Food 

Source: Monell’s

There has been a huge number of new restaurants opening but here are a couple of classics and a newish one:

  • Rotier’s Restaurant, the original Cheeseburger in Paradise? A Nashville classic and award winner, just be sure to get the burger on French bread.
  • Family style southern food at Monell's.  Dinner and breakfast are served to the table and passed around like a family holiday.
  • Hip Pinewood Social attracts visitors any time of day, breakfast and Crema coffee, co-working spot during the day, and bowling on antique lanes in the evening.
  • Need Barbecue? Martin’s, Peg Leg Porker,  Edleys, or G’z BBQ are all good choices.
  • Restaurants of award winning chefs include Sean Brock's Husk from Charleston, Tandy Wilson's City House, and the Catbird Seat. This year's James Beard semifinalists include Henrietta Red, Bastion, Josephine, and longtime East Nashville restaurant Margot Café & Bar.
  • Nashville Hot Chicken is very popular with heat level choices for anyone. But pay heed if they warn you when ordering.

 

Don't forget about the famous Nashville Hot Chicken. A few favorites among many great spots:

  • Princes Hot Chicken Shack. The original.
  • The Tenders Royale from Pepperfire is a nice introduction along with a couple of local drafts on tap, and blues music in the background.
  • Tenn Sixteen Great East Nashville Five Points restaurant.  The hot chicken comes in one heat level, kind of a "Nashville medium".  That is, it's usually pretty hot, unlike other restaurants that don’t specialize in hot chicken.
  • Fannie Mae's, which conveniently just opened up a new restaurant location near the convention center.
  • Another list hot chicken can be found here

Museums

Source: George Jones Museum (Also known as the home of the Mediacurrent Afterparty!)

Nashville is rich with history and musical history is at no shortage. Most of these museums are an easy walk or bus ride downtown:

  • The Frist Center -  This art deco building was originally the post office. The current exhibition is the exclusive North American venue of Rome: City and Empire from the British Museum.
  • Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum - Across the street from the convention center, you can also check out Hatch Show Prints or tacos from Bajo Sexto.
  • Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum - This museum “honors the talented musicians who actually played on the greatest recordings of all time.” Additionally The Rolling Stones first ever major exhibition, Exhibitionism, is making its last U.S stop, taking on Music City at the Musicians Hall Of Fame and Museum.
  • Lane Motor Museum - An amazing variety of the largest European collection of cars in the U.S. located a few miles from the convention center.

 

Exercise

Source: Expedia

Jogging/Walking
  • The downtown Cumberland River Greenway connects to Bicentennial mall - This route can be varied for any distance. 
  • Another popular area for walking and jogging is to cross the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge to Cumberland Park and Nissan stadium. 
Hiking/Trail Running 
  • Warner Parks - Large wooded parks on the western boundary of Nashville has hills with a view of the city.
  • B Cycle has bikes for rent by the hour with many locations to pick up or leave a bicycle.   

Family and Kids Activities
Miscellaneous
  • There is a free bus downtown to the Gulch or Farmer's Market and Germantown that has stops around the convention center.  Look for the Green Circuit.  This would be a good way to get to the AAA Nashville Sounds Baseball game in the evening.  
  • A couple of hints on street pronunciations beyond just a southern accent might help too:

       Demonbreun Street - Pronounced da-mun’-bree-un.
       Lafayette Street - Pronounced luh-fay’-ett. ( I know, I know) 


Hopefully everyone has a great experience in Nashville and comes back for a more leisurely visit.

ComputerMinds.co.uk: Patching Drupal without server access

Planet Drupal - 3 April 2018 - 4:35am
Patching Drupal without server access James Williams 3rd Apr 2018

If you don't have access to the file system on the server for a Drupal site, when a security issue like Drupalgeddon2 comes along, you are entitled to panic! Many sites are run by a combination of teams, so sometimes you really don't have control over the server... but that might even mean there is another way to apply fixes. If you've been tasked with updating such a site (I was!), it's worth checking if the server has been misconfigured in such a way to actually allow you to patch Drupal, via Drupal!

Fixing Drupal, really quickly James Williams 3rd Apr 2018

Drupalgeddon2 happened! We got all but two of our projects updated within an hour, with those remaining trickier two fully patched another hour later. The key was planning the right process using the right tools. We actually use these tools for regular deployments every day, but speed was essential for this security update.

Zivtech: How to Prevent Your Drupal Site from Getting Hacked: Part 2

Planet Drupal - 3 April 2018 - 2:00am

In part one of this post, I went over how Drupal Security Advisories, SSL/TLS certificates, and thorough user account security help lay the foundation for keeping your Drupal site secure. In part two, we’ll take a look at user roles and permissions, input filters and text formats, and third party libraries.

User Roles and Permissions

To keep your site secure, always make sure that your user roles and permissions are configured properly. Depending on the modules installed and third party integrations, there could be additional permissions and/or roles to configure to ensure the site is still secure after installing a particular module. It’s important to read the full module README and/or module documentation to verify that all configuration options and permissions have been set up securely. In many cases, modules with very important security related permissions will either set them to a sane default configuration, or put up a notice on the modules page within the admin UI. Some will do both. Some will do neither, so that’s why you need to be aware. 

For each module you enable, there can be optional or required permissions that need to be configured. This is one of the easiest things to overlook as a Drupal beginner, so keep an eye on which modules you’re enabling, and if you have permissions set for all your roles before launching the site.
