  • YouTube

If you have another service you would like added, please open a feature request in the support queue.

Entity Legal State

New Drupal Modules - 10 February 2017 - 12:47am

Addon module to the Entity Legal module.

This module stores the entity_legal document "published version" info
in Drupal state, rather than in the config entity itself.

This is useful when trying to avoid this setting being reverted inadvertently,
e.g. by an (automated) deployment changing the reference to the
EntityLegalDocumentVersion content entity.
It is also useful in cases where you have different version entities on
different environments.

Platform.sh: Multiple MySQLs Make Platform.sh a Marvelous Multisite Machine

Planet Drupal - 9 February 2017 - 5:00pm

(Because alliterations are always appropriate.)

As we hinted at previously when rolling out Apache Solr 6.3, we’re rolling out new functionality for many of our containers to support multiple databases on a single service. We’re happy to report that next up is the big one: MySQL now supports multiple databases, and restricted users.

Nacho Digital: New HTML validation method from GoDaddy (and how to configure using apache)

Planet Drupal - 9 February 2017 - 2:43pm
Not sure who's to blame, but we have a new HTML validation method from GoDaddy. It is an improvement from the "none HTML validation at all" phase they went through, but took me a while to make it work with apache. The problem was the dot/hidden directory they request to put your validation code in: /.well-known/pki-validation/godaddy.html

In my case there were a couple of reasons why this was difficult:

  • I didn't know about the hidden directory (.) block in Apache.
  • In my case some domains run the whole site over HTTPS, so I needed to make the new rules co-exist with the old HTTPS redirection rules.
  • I have a mixture of hostings. For some sites I control apache, so I could use Virtual Host configurations. But for others (like the ones running on Acquia) I need to create .htaccess rules.

The solution was much simpler than I anticipated, but quite difficult to debug. Finally I made it work for both environments.

I could have used the DNS ownership verification method, but in my case that means I would need to involve the people owning the domain. In my experience that takes longer and it can become really involved when owner doesn't know anything about DNS.

Jeff Geerling's Blog: Preserve the ability to Quick Edit nodes when theming node templates!

Planet Drupal - 9 February 2017 - 12:49pm

...aka, avoid the annoying Javascript error below:

TypeError: undefined is not an object (evaluating 'entityElement

Many themers working on Drupal 8 sites have Contextual menus and Quick Edit enabled (they're present in the Standard Drupal install profile, as well as popular profiles like Acquia's Lightning), and at some point during theme development, they notice that there are random and unhelpful fatal javascript errors—but they only appear for logged in administrators.

Eventually, they may realize that disabling the Contextual links module fixes the issue, so they do so and move along. Unfortunately, this means that content admins (who tend to love things like contextual links—at least when they work) and up not being able to hover over content to edit it.

There are two ways you can make things better without entirely disabling these handy modules:

Drupal.org blog: So long, and thanks for all the issues

Planet Drupal - 9 February 2017 - 12:30pm

I am happy and sad to share the news today that I am leaving the Drupal Association for an exciting new adventure.

I've been volunteering for Drupal.org for a while before I joined the Association as a staff member in April 2012. Before that I never actually thought you can be paid to do something you volunteer your free time for because you enjoy doing it so much.

It was also my first remote job. Back then it was not as common. I clearly remember first talking to Angie, and my initial response was "You are crazy. I am literally on the other side of the world." Which she didn't find to be of any consequence.

It's been a wonderful (almost) 5 years. I've learned a lot, and grew. I've traveled a lot and met lots of fantastic people. I watched the Association grow. Our engineering team grew as well from 2 to 11, which was exciting but also challenging to be a part of. We've done some great things on Drupal.org. Of course, there are so many many more I wish we'd done. :)

The time has come however to move on to the new challenges.

Thanks to all the volunteers who worked with me during all these years. You were so helpful and generous with your time.

Thanks to the staff members for being wonderful human beings, for your support, and laughs, for becoming a family.

I am incredibly sad to leave our staff, and especially the Engineering team. They are a smaller team now, and I know just how hard it will be to maneuver all the requests coming from all the different parts of the community with the limited resources they now have. So please be nice to them.

As for the next steps, I am looking forward to joining the DA alumni club, which includes some of my closest friends. And I will be around. You will probably see me at the next DrupalCon. Come say hi. And no, I will not fix your webmasters' queue issue.

Mediacurrent: 5 Steps to Identify the Right Project Management Methodology

Planet Drupal - 9 February 2017 - 10:12am

Project management (PM) is an art. Creativity is essential to success for the team and especially for the leader who must communicate, listen, enable, motivate, and lead the team to meet the needs of the internal and external stakeholders.  A project manager lacking creativity is like a soft, lightly stuffed animal – he or she will just flop around, jumping from one idea to the next without any purpose.
