myDropWizard.com: Are your private Drupal files secure? Check now!

Planet Drupal - 17 January 2018 - 8:21am

One of the great things about Drupal, is that it's possible to build a pretty advanced site just by pointing and clicking and configuring things - what we call "site building" in the Drupal universe.

But with all that power, you can also make your Drupal site less secure - and possible to hack! - just by changing configuration settings! We covered other examples of this in a previous article.

Today we're going to talk about one of the most common... and most DANGEROUS: exposing your Drupal private files on the internet.

In this article we're going to discuss how to determine if your private files have been exposed, and also how to fix it.

myDropWizard.com: CiviCRM secrets for Drupalers: Screencast of Drupal 8 + CiviCRM Installation

Planet Drupal - 17 January 2018 - 8:13am

We're Drupalers who only recently started digging deep into CiviCRM and we're finding some really cool things! This series of videos is meant to share those secrets with other Drupalers, in case they come across a project that could use them. :-)

You may recall the blog post that David put out way back in August 2017. He gave some very detailed instructions on how you can install CiviCRM on Drupal 8!

We have some new Drupal versions released since August, and we've had some requests to demonstrate how to go through some of the steps. So, I'm going to do just that!

Every step will be followed quite literally. Note that David assumed this was being installed on a development system running Linux. Since I'm running a Mac, this should be a great cross-platform test.

Watch the screencast to see if I run into any issues with the instructions:

Video of CiviCRM secrets for Drupalers: Screencast of Drupal 8 + CiviCRM Installation

Some highlights from the video:

  • Very quick install of Drupal 8 on a Mac running MAMP
  • Download and installation of CiviCRM
  • Brief comments along the way as I follow the steps
  • Finish with a working Drupal 8 + CiviCRM site!

IDW Games Announces The X-Files: Everything is Connected

Matt Glaman: Attributing RSS traffic on your Drupal site using UTM

Planet Drupal - 17 January 2018 - 7:30am
Attributing RSS traffic on your Drupal site using UTM mglaman Wed, 01/17/2018 - 09:30 It seems like RSS is not quite as a buzz as it once was, years ago. There are reasons for that, but I partly believe it is because more services mask direct RSS feed subscriptions in larger aggregate tools. This change also makes it more interesting to get analytics about where that traffic is coming from, and what feed. When I migrated my site to Drupal 8, I decided to take an adventure on adding UTM parameters to my RSS feeds.

Valuebound: Data-binding methods in AngularJS

Planet Drupal - 17 January 2018 - 7:05am

The blog is follow up on our previous post “My First Impression of Learning AngularJS” where I shared my experience of working in AngularJS. This blog is intended to take you one step ahead and have a better understanding of basic operation workflow. In Angular, we have a concept of ‘Data-binding’ that means synchronization of data between a view to model or model to view (technically). 
 

From the business perspective: Change in the logic (backend) impacts front-end (view) and vice versa.
