Your game's trailer isn't for you! - by M. Joshua Cauller Blogs - 7 February 2016 - 10:14pm
Your game isn’t for you — it’s for the players. There’s a magical transition the moment the controller hits a player’s hands: the game becomes theirs. This is also true the moment a player sees your trailer. Hopefully.

ARREA-Systems: Drupal 8 Guided Tour module

Planet Drupal - 6 February 2016 - 4:38pm
Drupal 8 Guided Tour module JK Sun, 02/07/2016 - 08:38

In Drupal 8 there is a Tour module in core that is very useful when it comes to web applications. In EK management tools we target professional users with small to medium scale companies. They usually have limited resources and time to spend on back office trainings. This is where the Tour module is very convenient to introduce functionalities to users who can quickly grasp the functions available to manage their back office.

We use the Tour functionality in our pages to guide users in their daily tasks like for instance in the form to create a new invoice or project page:

Planet Drupal - 6 February 2016 - 2:36pm

Entity pilot beta-6 comes with the ability to share and move content between different Drupal 8 sites.

Up until beta-5 your sites had to share the same configuration: i.e. content-types, fields etc.

From beta 6, you can now enable the Entity Pilot Map Config sub-module and decide how to handle missing fields and content-types.

Categories: Drupal Featured Case Studies: Intelligent Life web and app development

Planet Drupal - 5 February 2016 - 1:25pm
Completed Drupal site or project URL:

Intelligent Life is a bi-monthly cultural premium magazine published by the Economist Group, describes its coverage as "the arts, style, food, wine, cars, travel and anything else under the sun, as long as it’s interesting".

The Intelligent Life digital presence was failing to do the print edition justice and it took multiple amounts of effort to create each individual piece of content for 3 different types of devices. The project aim was to mimic the style and grace of the print edition online without it being a real challenge for The Economist team to create content. The site also needed to provide the functionality for the editors to manage the web and app back-ends as one. Also, we had to provide the possibility for the editorial team to publish great imagery on web and app similarly to the print edition, as this is a key element of both their print and online presences. By creating a fresh, modern UI and optimising the structure, our aim was to increase the number of visitors and foster longer periods of engagement with the content.

Another Drop in the Drupal Sea: Drupal Chat: The Drupal Learning Curve

Planet Drupal - 5 February 2016 - 10:33am

There is a joke about the Drupal learning curve that relates it to the Drupal learning cliff. And while the graph generally gets things confused (by placing time on the x-axis instead of the y-axis), the sentiment is understood. Until a person is able to get her/his head around how Drupal does things, it's quite possible to spend a great deal of time to accomplish very little. Even worse, it's possible to spend a great deal of time developing really bad habits.
