Digitalist: New module: HTTP Status Code

Planet Drupal - 8 May 2019 - 12:25am
HTTP Status Code is a new module to manipulate HTTP status header. HTTP Status Code is a new module to manipulate HTTP status header. Main reason for doing this module is that in some cases you need to do manual fixes on the server side to create 410 Gone headers for paths that you want to remove from Google search index, with this module active you could setup the paths directly in Drupal. You can find the the module at Normaly install should be done with composer - composer require drupal/http_status_code. The module supports all Headers used by Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response - with that said - HTTP headers should be used with caution. So make sure what you understand the impact then you manipulate the HTTP Header - like adding a 301 Redirect Header will be real bad when you not have a redirect in place. If you remove a page, the request for the path of the page normally then gives a 404 not… Read More

Cheeky Monkey Media: 3.5 Ways To Approach (And Budget) For a Drupal 8/9 Migration

3.5 Ways To Approach (And Budget) For a Drupal 8/9 Migration dennis Tue, 05/07/2019 - 23:09

Back in September 2018, Dries Buytaert, founder and project lead of Drupal, announced, 

Drupal 7 will be end-of-life in November 2021, Drupal 9 will be released in 2020, and Drupal 8 will be end-of-life in November 2021. 

You can read the announcement and get further information on this here -

Since that announcement, Cheeky Monkey Media has been in a lot of conversations with businesses of all shapes and sizes, not-for-profit and for-profit, that are currently on the Drupal 7 CMS platform and are considering migrating to Drupal 8.

The first thing everyone needs to realize is the move to drupal 8 will be painful, and almost as expensive as building a Drupal website from scratch.

The second thing everyone should realize is that once they’re on Drupal 8, the move to Drupal 9 will be relatively painless.

As Dries announced in a later article,

Old-School Essentials: Basic Rules

New RPG Product Reviews - 7 May 2019 - 11:44am
Publisher: Necrotic Gnome
Rating: 5
Original review appears here: [](

Old-School Essentials is a redesign of the classic "Basic/Expert" rules using OGC sources. The books are all digest-sized, 6" x 9" format. All of the books feature fantastic full-color covers from artist Andrew Walter and color accented interiors; limited to mostly pale green.
A moment about these covers. They remind me of a surreal 70s version of Lord of the Rings meets Elric; easily some of my most favorite covers of in all of the Old-School movement.
All the books are extremely modular. This was a design goal by Norman and it pays off. Everything is easy to find. Sections usually take up a page or multiple full pages. If you were so inclined you could cut up your books (!) or print out the PDFs and reorganize them as you see fit. Really at this point, the only thing that could make these books easier to use is having all the content in a spiral-bound volume so it can lay flat at your table.

Old School Essentials expands on these rules and reorganizes them some more. There is a Basic Rules that takes place of the Core book and then a Genre book that covers classes and other "D and D" like topics. I imagine that different genre books will have other rules and classes.

Old-School Essentials: Basic Rules
This free 56-page book covers all the basics of the OSE line. Picking it up you can see the stylistic changes from B/XE to OSE. Also this book covers just about everything you need to play right now. It includes the four human classes, some rules, some spells, some monsters, and treasure. Enough to give you a taste of what OSE will be like.
It has the same modular design as B/XE so finding things is simple, leaving more time for play.
There is no interior art in this free version, but that hardly detracts from it.

I am really looking forward to seeing OSE out. But until then I am going to enjoy playing with B/XE!

OSTraining: Define Role Based Field Permissions in Drupal 8

Planet Drupal - 7 May 2019 - 10:12am

The Field Permissions module in Drupal 8 allows you to set permissions (enter, edit or view) on a Drupal field, based on the role the user belongs to.

In order to demonstrate how this module works, we are going to create a content type called "Essay" for the website of a school.

There will be 2 roles:

  • Freshman
  • Sophomore.

The Freshmen permission will not be allowed to choose the subject of the essay, whereas the Sophomores will have the possibility to choose between literature and history. However, there will be no possibility to change the subject once a student has made a choice.

Let’s start!

Drupal Association blog: New on better visibility into the humans behind the comments

Planet Drupal - 7 May 2019 - 8:21am

We're excited about a feature built by a member of our community and recently deployed on to give more human context to discussions in the Drupal issue queue, you can now choose to display your primary language, pronoun, and location.

Update your profile now

This is an opportunity to bolster human context within an online medium where tone and posture can be difficult to read. Providing this level of detail allows for visibility into the global composition of our community — such as when a person's primary language is not English or when a person resides in a distant time zone.

It is important to recognize what being global means and drawing attention to the details that remind us about the people behind the project helps us all to have a greater understanding of one another.

You can enable this new feature by editing your user account and adding pronouns to the personal information tab, and location language on the Language/location tab. Finally, you can opt into what you would like shown inline in comments under the "comments" tab.

Scaling Community Decision-making

Hussian Room 125

Any libre software, volunteer, or even startup project will have elements of do-ocracy (rule of those who do the work) but not all decisions should devolve to implementors. Rather, a basic principle is that decisions should be made by the people who are most affected.

  • Learn why meritocracy ("rule of those with merit") is a completely bogus and harmful concept.
  • Gain a passing familiarity with various ways decisions are or have been made in Drupal.
  • Add sociocracy and sortition to your vocabulary and understand how these esoteric concepts can help our community scale.
  • See how Visions Unite is putting more democratic decision-making approaches into practice.
