Drupal blog: Thanks to the Drupal Security Team for keeping us safe

Planet Drupal - 29 March 2018 - 11:06am

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

We released new versions of Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 yesterday that fixed a highly critical security bug. All software has security bugs, and fortunately for Drupal, critical security bugs are rare. What matters is how you deal with security releases.

I have the utmost respect for how the Drupal Security Team manages a security release like this — from fixing the bug, testing the solution, providing advance notice, coordinating the release, to being available for press inquiries and more.

The amount of effort, care and dedication that the Drupal Security Team invests to keep Drupal secure is unparalleled, and makes Drupal's security best-in-class. Thank you!

It must be a Thursday. I never could get a handle on Thursdays. Honestly, last night at several points, I thought, “Well, tomorrow’s Friday.” Oh was I not happy when I would remember, “wait… no… it’s only Thursday.” Kinda feel sorry for the day. It’s like, “hey there, day-that’s-not-quite-Friday. Thanks for seemingly just extending out […]

Texas Creative: Frosted Glass - HTML CSS TWEAKS

Planet Drupal - 29 March 2018 - 9:35am

Creating a frosted glass effect using CSS is a better method than the old javascript hacks. Using CSS to create the frosted effect uses fewer resources from the site visitors computer by using the native browser rendering engine.

To test this just drag the frosted glass example in the top right of this page

Ok, without wasting much of your time I’m going to jump straight into it.

The main components used for a classic frosted glass effect are:

  • > The original content
  •  - - > The frosted glass container ( Exp. <div> )
  •  - - - - > Original content copy inside the glass container (the element that mimics the content on the page with a blur effect).

For a basic idea of how this works. Here is a simple example:
