James Oakley: hook_uninstall not running? Drupal schoolboy errors #1

Planet Drupal - 28 March 2017 - 9:04am

I'll put this here, in case it helps anyone else.

I'm owning up to Drupal Schoolboy Error #1.

I was writing a very simple module. It did so little, that I wanted to keep things as simple as possible — just a .info file, and a .module file.

Categories: Game Theory & Design Most common Drupal site building pitfalls and how to avoid them! (Part 3 of 3)

Planet Drupal - 28 March 2017 - 7:58am

This is the third in a series of articles, in which I'd like to share the most common pitfalls we've seen, so that you can avoid making the same mistakes when building your sites!

myDropWizard offers support and maintenance for Drupal sites that we didn't build initially. We've learned the hard way which site building mistakes have the greatest potential for creating issues later.

And we've seen a lot of sites! Besides our clients, we also do a FREE in-depth site audit as the first step when talking to a potential client, so we've seen loads of additional sites that didn't become customers.

In the first article, we looked at security updates, badly installed module code and challenges ith "patching" modules and themes, as well as specific strategies for addressing each of those problems. In the second article, we looked at how to do the most common Drupal customizations without patching.

In this article, we're going to look at some common misconfigurations that make a site less secure, and how to avoid them!

NOTE: even though they might take a slightly different form depending on the version, most of these same pitfalls apply equally to Drupal 6, 7 and 8! It turns out that bad practices are quite compatible with multiple Drupal versions ;-)

X-Men Munchkin Now Available

Tabletop Gaming News - 28 March 2017 - 7:00am
Back when I read comics, I was an X-fan. I mostly read X-Factor, but since I also read Wolverine, so that means I read some X-Men as well. And, of course, I watched the cartoon as well. As such, I’ve always been more a Marvel fan than a DC fan. So, even though I don’t […]

MidCamp - Midwest Drupal Camp: Free Community Drupal Training at MidCamp 2017

Planet Drupal - 28 March 2017 - 6:38am

It started as a question.  Why do Drupal camps only have trainings on a separate day?  The legitimate answer was that trainings and sessions should not compete for audiences for a normal Drupal camp audience.  But what if the trainings were not for that normal Drupal camp audience?

When all of the hard work was done by the MidCamp venue team to secure the DePaul University Student Center for MidCamp 2017, we immediately started exploring the idea of having half day Drupal training sessions for those that would nornally not attend a Drupal camp.  We reserved two extra rooms for this idea.

While I looked for interested parties who would be interested in attending the trainings, Joseph Purcell of Digital Bridge Solutions worked to organize an Introduction to Making Websites with Drupal itinerary and found great trainers to lead the event: Michael Chase, ‎Instructor at DePaul University College of Computing and Digital Media, and Aaron Meeuwsen, Web Developer at HS2 Solutions, along with several other volunteers, Scott Weston and Matt Ramir from HS2, and Doug Dobrzynski from PMMI Media Group.  Without them, we couldn't have made this happen. I would also like to thank my employer, Xeno Media for contributing some of my time to help organize these trainings.

We've reached out to, and are happy to be working with such great local Chicago technology groups.  Girl Develop It, which provides programs for adult women interested in learning web and software development in a judgment-free environment, the IT Knowledge and Abilities Network (ITKAN), which provides professional networking and growth organization with a focus on professionals and aspiring professionals with disabilities, and Women Who Code, a global non-profit dedicated to inspiring women to excel in technology careers all answered our call.

But we still have room for more.  Do you know of someone who would benefit from free Intro to Drupal Training?  We want you to invite them!

The trainings will cover basic CMS tasks like editing and publishing content, creating navigation menus, and placement of content on the site, and will approach into more complex tasks such as module installation and site configurations. Additionally, we’ll show the various ways the Drupal community can help through the issue queue, meetups, job boards, and mentorship.

The sessions are:

  • Friday March 31st - 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
  • Friday March 31st - 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
  • Saturday April 1st - 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
  • Saturday April 1st - 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Get your free ticket today!

Don't be shy, please share and and invite anyone you think would benefit from these trainings.  Ticket enrollment is open, and we would love to have every seat filled!
