Acro Media: Drupal Commerce 2: How to Set up Taxes

Planet Drupal - 11 January 2018 - 3:10pm

Setting up taxes in Drupal Commerce 2 is a snap. The component comes bundled with some predefined tax rate plugins, such as Canadian sales tax and European Union VAT. This means that enabling these tax types is as easy as checking a box. More complicated tax regions, like you would find in the United States, have integrations available with services such as Avalara AvaTax, TaxCloud and more. Custom tax types can also be created out-of-the-box.

In this Acro Media Tech Talk video, we user our Urban Hipster Commerce 2 demo site to quickly show you how to configure the predefined tax plugins as well as add a custom tax type. 

Its important to note that this video was recorded before the official 2.0 release of Drupal Commerce. The current state of the Taxes sub-module is even more robust than what you see here, and additional plugins have been added out-of-the-box. Documentation is also still lacking at the time of this post, however, we've added a link anyway so that whoever finds this in the future will benefit.

Urban Hipster Commerce 2 Demo site

This video was created using the Urban Hipster Commerce 2 demo site. We've built this site to show the adaptability of the Drupal 8, Commerce 2 platform. Most of what you see is out-of-the-box functionality combined with expert configuration and theming.

Field Format Case

New Drupal Modules - 11 January 2018 - 7:06am

Ever wanted your fields in a node add/edit form or a user registration form to contain characters in the same case for formatting reasons? This module addresses this exact issue. An extra fieldset is added to the Manage Field form and allows you to select the case of each column. For example, a simple textfield only contains the value column, whereas an address field contains multiple columns for the country, the city, the area, the postal code etc. The module allows you to select uppercase or lowercase values for each one.

Mark Shropshire: Drupal SEO Presentation at CharDUG

Planet Drupal - 11 January 2018 - 4:30am

I had a great time talking general and Drupal SEO at last night's CharDUG meetup! Just wanted to drop my slide deck here for reference. There are a lot of fantastic links in the deck.

Thanks to Mediacurrent for having a great culture for internal training. They invested in a large group of staff to go through the SEO Olympian program. I also want to thank the Mediacurrent Digital Strategy team for putting this training together. This training inspired me to dig more into SEO and put together this presentation and live demo of Drupal SEO modules.

I hope to present this talk again in the future.
