Gobblin’ Post-Apocalyptic RPG Up On Kickstarter

Tabletop Gaming News - 18 October 2017 - 12:00pm
Most of the time, when you think of goblins, you think of a fantasy setting. Orcs, elves, forests, dwarves, that kind of thing. Such is not the case in Gobblin‘. Instead, you’re taken into a post-apocalyptic world. Think Fallout meets Tolkien. In this new RPG, you play as a goblin looking to survive in a […]

Elevated Third: Elevated Third Wins 2017 Acquia Engage Award

Elevated Third Wins 2017 Acquia Engage Award Elevated Third Wins 2017 Acquia Engage Award Ayla Peacock Wed, 10/18/2017 - 12:04

At the 2017 Acquia Engage Conference, our enterprise web project for Pinnacol Assurance won the Financial Services category. As an Acquia Preferred Partner and sponsor of the Acquia Engage conference, we are thrilled to have been ranked beside the world's top Drupal websites. 

Pinnacol.com launched in December of 2016. As Colorado’s leading workers compensation insurer, Pinnacol Assurance needed a Drupal website design that reflected the company’s commitment to first-class service.

Built on Drupal 8, we launched a brand new enterprise content management system, created a one-of-a-kind knowledge hub, and revamped the site’s user experience interface.

“The Pinnacol project was lengthy and complex, we had very specific problems that required creative solutions. Elevated Third developed a high performing, enterprise-level website that continues to exceed our expectations.”

- Hilary Miller, Brand and Marketing Director, Pinnacol Assurance

This year, five of our Drupal websites were finalists in the annual Acquia Engage competition. Partners and customers submitted more than 200 nominations across 17 categories to the program. Our Drupal work ranked in the following categories. 

Powdr Corporation, Digital Experience Finalist

Denver Botanic Gardens, Nonprofit Finalist

Comcast Technology Solutions, Brand Experience Finalist

Firewise USA, Community Finalist

Pinnacol Assurance, Financial Services Winner

“Winning sites set themselves apart in how they grabbed our attention and made us want to learn more,” said CMSWire’s Dom Nicastro, one of the award program jurors. “The first thing I looked for were search and commerce capabilities. It's a Google and Amazon world that we live in. No one comes to a website just for a pretty design, and no one remembers a red call-to-action button versus a blue one. Sites that deliver excellent search and easy transactional experiences won for me.”

Congratulations to all the 2017 Acquia Engage winners!

Zivtech: Common Issues Found During a Drupal Site Audit

Planet Drupal - 18 October 2017 - 9:43am

Over the years, Zivtech has worked on many different types of existing Drupal websites and web applications. These projects have ranged from sites that were built with Drupal’s best practices to those built by developers with little to no Drupal experience. At Zivtech, we typically call a website that follows little to none of Drupal’s best practices a “lemon.” Our CTO, Jody Hamilton, did a great two part blog series called Lemon: Drupal Diseases and Cures if you would like to know more about what a Drupal lemon is.

If your site fits into the category of a lemon, it likely requires too much work to fix and should probably be rebuilt. In many cases though, our developers find that we can “rescue” the site to get it back into a secure and maintainable state after a site audit. We perform a site audit to identify the issues that can be fixed, and then provide an informative report about what problems have been found and how we can resolve them.

Our extensive experience with site audits has helped us identify common mistakes that Drupal sites are often guilty of. In this post we’ll outline the common mistakes and configuration issues that we find on most lemons. Some of these issues are even common on sites that have mostly followed Drupal’s best practices.
