ThinkShout: Teaching Tolerance is nominated for a Webby!

Planet Drupal - 6 April 2018 - 5:00am

We’re thrilled to announce that Teaching Tolerance, a program of the Southern Poverty Law Center is up for a Webby! Their mission is to provide educators with the tools to create a kind and inclusive school climate. They do this through a library of articles and resources that they’ve turned into teachable materials via a Learning Plan Builder, d and other classroom activities. It’s something that we feel is especially important work, now more than ever.

This is a project that meant so much to everyone that touched it; and it was a true partnership every step of the way for both our teams (Tolerance and ThinkShout). It certainly speaks to the passion that was put into it from all angles, and it’s an honor to be recognized for this work.

Our Case Study will give you the full scope of work. But for a quick summary: In redesigning their website, ThinkShout set out to turn the wealth of articles and resources Tolerance had into teachable materials, and did so by creating a guided Learning Plan Builder that makes all content classroom-ready. Tolerance grants free access to thousands of resources – from video to essays to proven teaching strategies – and everything within that catalogue is now actionable. We also took on the challenge of migrating their content from two older Drupal 6 and 7 sites into one new Drupal 8 site.

The result? Since launching summer of 2017, Tolerance.org has seen improvements across the board:

  • Pages per session up 21%
  • Session duration up 27%
  • Bounce rate decreased by 8%
  • Returning visitors up by 3%
  • Registrations nearly doubled (from 19,000 to 36,000)

Here’s where you come in: our nomination for a Webby means we need the people’s voice (aka VOTES) to actually win. Voting ends April 19th!

Vote for Tolerance.org in the Webby’s

Personally, we can’t think of anything more critical at this time than the work Tolerance.org is doing to ensure the next generation is primed to participate in our democracy. And winning the Webby will certainly help them gain visibility and advance their mission even further.

P.S. Travel Oregon also made it as an honoree in the Travel category, and they were up against some stiff competition! You can see their case study here.

The road to Nashville, DrupalCon and fun awaits! mglaman Fri, 04/06/2018 - 07:00 It is that time of year, again! It is DrupalCon time! Woooooo. Last year DrupalCon Baltimore saw 3,271 attendees, and I'm thinking Nashville will bring in more (because, Nashville.) When this publishes and hits various feeds, I will be on the road and (hopefully) an hour into the eight-hour drive to Nashville with my family.

Valuebound: Safety concerns in an E-Commerce site and how Drupal is addressing it

Planet Drupal - 6 April 2018 - 2:40am

The advances in technology has brought in an unprecedented growth in E-Commerce industry, which has become a major target for cyber crimes. Thus, it becomes necessary to address the security measures for websites as any data breach leads to the loss of sensitive information along with monetary losses. This not only threatens reputation of the organization but also leads to mistrust among customers. When compared to leading organizations, smaller firms are affected more as they have to suffer substantial losses.

 Full security over the web can’t be attained as the hackers are devising new plans everyday to access consumer data. But, threats can be minimised by following certain…

Amazee Labs: The Zuerich.com Filter Pages based on React and Drupal 7

Planet Drupal - 6 April 2018 - 12:28am
The Zuerich.com Filter Pages based on React and Drupal 7

We recently relaunched the updated front-end for Zürich Tourismus. In this blog post, I want to highlight some user experience improvements that we added to the existing Drupal 7 website using React. Enter the Zuerich.com filter pages.

Josef Dabernig Fri, 04/06/2018 - 09:28

The Zuerich.com filter pages are highly interactive and allow the site visitor to explore data in a synchronized list & map view. We also applied the same concept to the different filter pages for Accommodation, Events and Restaurants.

Instant, Client-Side filtering

A key improvement to the filter pages is that they allow users to quickly explore and filter the data. The filter section immediately updates the corresponding results list according to the selected criteria. This works well for datasets below 1000 items, which are all accessed together and filtered using React on the client-side.

In traditional Drupal implementations, we would have the entire page reload for every filter click event, or, if we were to use AJAX, the entire results section would reload and require a round-trip to the server which slows down the user experience. With the new React-based approach, we were able to greatly improve the interaction speed. The search box also instantly filters the items for every character that the user enters.

Proximity Filtering

A really cool feature on top of the instant client-side filtering is the “Nearby me” search. It allows the user to either select their own geolocation or select from some popular points of interest. For tourists that aren’t yet familiar with the city, being able to choose between various important locations, such as the Zurich airport or main station, helps in their orientation.

When a point of interest has been selected, the map instantly switches to “Filter list by map” mode which only displays the results that correspond to the current map window. As the user zooms in or out, the map automatically updates the results list.

Keeping Multiple Viewports in Sync

Keeping multiple viewports easily in sync is one of the main advantages of using React to implement the filter pages. The state of the dataset and filters can be managed centrally and will automatically update the different views, such as the filters themselves, the results list as well as the markers on the map. By moving around the map, the user is also able to filter the list results to show only what is available in the current viewport which helps narrow down their search geographically.

Unlimited, Interactive, React-based Filter Pages

The Zuerich.com filter pages are built using React components within the existing Drupal 7 infrastructure that drives the main website. We fetch the data from the backend using custom JSON feeds and render the filters, the results lists and map views using React. By doing so, we significantly improved the actual and perceived performance of the user interactions with the filters and map view. The same concept has been applied to different parts of the website. There are many more of these filters pages in addition to the ones used for Accommodation, Events and Restaurants.

In the back-end, the content editors are able to create custom filter pages using a special Content Type form. Filter settings and sort or proximity search options are able to be configured accordingly. In the React-based front-end, we then show the adjusted set of filter options and adjust the list views slightly i.e. to show star ratings for hotels.
