Ashday's Digital Ecosystem and Development Tips: Should You Hire In-House Programmers as Employees or Outsource to a Consulting Firm?

Planet Drupal - 22 May 2018 - 7:30am

Well sure, ok, maybe we might be slightly biased on this. We are, as it turns out, a consulting firm in the business of selling outsourced programming. Ahem...

But, nonetheless, I’ll try to be reasonably fair and balanced here. As a consultancy I think we have, in fact, a unique vantage point on such matters, since we spend each day of our lives straddling both sides of this topic: That is, we sell outsourced programming to organizations for whom outsourcing is a good fit; whereas we ourselves hire in house staff programmers, i.e. we are an organization for whom outsourcing is not a good fit.

Web Wash: Create Individual Registration Forms using Multiple Registration in Drupal 8

Planet Drupal - 22 May 2018 - 6:30am

If a user needs to create an account on a Drupal site, they go to the user registration page at "/user/register". This page is the registration form on a Drupal site. You can customize it by adding or removing fields. But what if you want to have multiple registration pages?

Let's say you have two different roles on your Drupal site and you need a separate form for each role. How would you build that?

You could handle all of this writing custom code but remember we're using Drupal so means there's a module that can handle this type of functionality and It's called Multiple Registration.

The Multiple Registration module allows you to create individual registration forms base off a user role in Drupal. When you register on one of the forms, you're automatically assigned the configured role.

In this tutorial, you'll learn how to use Multiple Registration to create individual registration forms.
