Drupal core announcements: Experimental Modules' status towards Drupal 8.4.0 release

Planet Drupal - 27 July 2017 - 12:56am

Starting in Drupal 8, we've added the notion of Experimental Modules, to help provide an early look at core features which are not yet complete. A major focus of Drupal 8.4.0 has been stabilizing these experimental modules, so that they can "graduate" to stable modules which can be installed in production and leveraged by other core and contrib modules.

Here's a document that outlays the current status of each experimental module, as well as their goals with respect to the forthcoming 8.4.0 alpha deadline (which is this coming Monday, July 31). If you're looking for a productive way to help your favourite initiative during 8.4.0's alpha/beta/RC phase, check it out!

Here's the TL;DR:

  • Content Moderation: Move from alpha to beta
  • Workflow: Move from alpha to beta
  • DateTime Range: Move to stable
  • Inline Form Errors: Move to stable
  • Layout Discovery: Move to stable
  • Media Entity: Move to stable (so contrib can rely on it), but hide module from UI (so end users don't accidentally turn this on solo, as it causes UX regressions)
  • Migrate / Migrate UI: Get as close to stable as possible.
  • Place Block: Hide module from UI (so end users don't turn it on), propose instead as patch to Block module for 8.5.0
  • Settings Tray: Move from alpha to beta

Agiledrop.com Blog: AGILEDROP: Are you prepared to take a chance with Experimental Modules?

Planet Drupal - 26 July 2017 - 11:36pm
Lately, a lot of our attention has been dedicated to Drupal modules. We have explored the most popular ones and the best for Drupal 8. But we will not stop here. We'll also look at the experimental modules, which may confuse some Drupal users. As you will see, there is also some risk in having them. What are the experimental modules? As stated on the official website of Drupal, experimental modules are modules that are included in Drupal core but are for testing purposes, so they are not (yet) fully supported. This new approach was introduced in Drupal 8. New experimental modules can only… READ MORE

Ben's SEO Blog: So You Hate Drupal…Now What?

Planet Drupal - 26 July 2017 - 9:34pm
“I hate Drupal!”

That’s what I heard from a marketing director at the Unbounce conference I attended earlier this summer. I put Drupal on my nametag and posted a few Drupal-related times to the conference app and that started quite a few conversations.

This poor woman was fed up with her Drupal website and was ready to make some changes. She finds it hard to create new content and it’s getting costly to update and maintain her site. And forget about trying to find a Drupal developer who didn’t... Read more

Ben's SEO Blog: Top SEO Factors for Drupal in 2014

Planet Drupal - 26 July 2017 - 9:34pm

On Sept 15, 2014, Searchmetrics released their 2014 Ranking Factors Study. In it, they analyzed 10,000 search results and created correlations between characteristics of websites and their rankings. In other words, webites that rank high, do x. Sites that ranks low, do y. For this blog post, I’m leaving out things like Backlinks (factor 4, 9, 12, etc.) because - as far as I know - there just aren’t that many modules or settings that can help you with it... Read more
