Those who try to gain control of their lives are called rebels, criminals, renegades, and they are inevitably swatted down one way or the other. You shouldn't ask me this question.
In previous blog post we have installed Drupal 8 on our system manually as well as using Drush. Drupal 8 Provides two built in content type Article and Basic page. We can use this to create pages. But most of time we need to either add fields to these content types or we just need to add new content type to organize the content better.
Probably the first change site builders will notice in Drupal 8 are the changes to content types and fields. The field changes affect not only content types, but any entity that can have fields e.g. taxonomy or user profile.
When we edit any content type,…
The Stanford Drupal Camp is a two-day event to discuss and learn about Drupal, an open-source content management system that powers thousands of websites at Stanford, and millions of websites beyond.
This year, the Stanford Drupal Camp emphasizes introductory sessions focused on content strategy as well as thought-provoking sessions for researchers in academia. Those new to Drupal and Content Strategy will be particularly interested in the events on Friday, whereas experienced Drupallers (yes, we spell it with two "L"s at Stanford) may be more interested in Saturday's program.
I am planning to propose a session for DrupalCon New Orleans about Drupal 8 development and Drupal Console and currently looking for session name ideas.
Session abstract text:
Drupal is infamous for his learning curve of drupalisms but Drupal 8 simplifies and standardize the development process, unfortunately this comes with a cost. Drupal 8 is more technically advanced compared to its predecessor and managing the increasing complexity of Drupal 8 could be a daunting task.
The Drupal Console is a CLI tool that helps you manage that complexity allowing you to generate boilerplate code, interact and debug Drupal 8.
The Drupal Console has been designed to increase productivity making Drupal development and interaction efficient and enjoyable.
Come along as we explore this tool that will help you developing by taking advantage of the modern PHP practices introduced into Drupal 8.jmolivas Thu, 02/04/2016 - 00:07

Nobody wants a website that can be hacked. Drupal has a great security track record and works hard to ensure that core and contributed modules are safe for everyone to use. One of the most common types of security issue is a cross-site scripting attack (XSS). In Drupal 8 we've made extensive changes to the theme system that reduce XSS vulnerabilities.
This past weekend, our thriving Vancouver community came together and worked on getting a variety of Drupal contrib projects ready for Drupal 8. This weekend allowed us to put on the finishing touches needed to get a stable 8.x-1.0 release out to the community! Let's have a look at what's new about this release of Basic, as well as some upcoming features.
While working on recent Drupal projects, I learned that Internet 10 and 11 (IE10-11) no longer support IE conditional comments. Conditional comments allow us to target specific versions or version ranges of IE to correct bugs or inconsitentices that normally are not present on other browsers. Typically for IE9 and below, we have been able to write conditional css by using something like this:

This module was developed by Interscope Records and designed with Acquia Sitefactory in mind to accommodate building sites in a multisite environment off a shared codebase without the need to push out updates for theme-level updates.
This module extends the Configuration Synchronization user interface with a form to select the source of the configuration to synchronize with.
The core user interface only has the ability to compare with the default sync directory. But it is possible to define any number of other source directories in the settings.php, so this module makes it possible to compare changes between those directories and the active configuration, and to import those changes.
