ImageX Media: Do You Know Who Your Customers Are?

Planet Drupal - 26 August 2016 - 11:07am

Previously in our blog, we discussed the five basics of content marketing. The first of these five basics of content marketing is understanding your audience. You can create all of the killer content you can, but if you don’t know who your audience is, what problems your business can solve for them, and where and how they’re consuming your content, then you risk it missing the mark entirely and falling into the internet’s ether.

ImageX Media: Are You Overlooking these Content Marketing Basics?

Planet Drupal - 26 August 2016 - 10:43am
So What Is Content Marketing?

Traditional marketing methods of the past have become outdated as audiences have lost interest and become more savvy in tuning them out. From browser-based ad blockers to streaming content online, ads have been relegated to the periphery at best, leading to low conversion rates, decreased traffic, and a lower return on investment.

File Encrypt

New Drupal Modules - 26 August 2016 - 9:24am

This is the D8 version of the encrypted_files project.

The file encrypt module allows you to encrypt files uploaded via Drupal using
the encrypt and key modules. When the files are requested, they'll get decrypted
automatically.

Configure file encrypt

Ideally first configure a different path at which the encrypted files should be
stored. Similar to private files you need an entry in settings.php for that:

$settings['encrypted_file_path'] = '';

EchoDitto Tech Blog: 3 Major Reasons Drupal 8 is Worth the Investment

Planet Drupal - 26 August 2016 - 8:42am

Saying a modern nonprofit or business needs a website is like saying the tires on your car need air. Deny it and you’re going to have a bad time. Given the significant tasks required of your website, from fundraising and ecommerce to PR and campaigning, the tools you use to power it and the interface through which your team will interact with the site should be given important consideration.

Lucky for you, one of the most widely used content management systems (CMS), just got a major update. Drupal 8 brings too many new features to discuss fully here, but you’ll be happy to know the end product is one that’s worth the investment.

Here’s why:

One – The content authoring experience is more efficient

Drupal’s admin interface has evolved over the years, and we’re happy to see it continue here. For starters, the new interface is streamlined, mobile-friendly, and by emphasizing simplicity, it makes the process of creating content and managing your site more efficient. Then comes Quick Edit, a tool which allows you to edit content directly on the page, without having to switch to the admin panel. Lastly, some under-the-hood improvements to how Drupal 8 caches portions of your site, means that logged-in users — whether they login just to access a community or special resources, or it's your staff managing the site and adding content — will likely see a significant boost to performance. These improvements just underscore how the experience for content authors and editors means your team takes less time, and less clicks, to update content on Drupal 8.

Two – The improvements for developers means easier maintenance

A number of new features in Drupal 8 are developer focused. There’s Twig, a new templating engine, some commonly used modules are now included by default in Drupal 8, and there’s better support for things like accessibility and multilingual support. Unless you’re a developer, you’re not likely to ever see these changes first hand, but you will experience them.

These improvements for developers mean maintenance tasks will largely be much easier (and occasionally faster) for developers to complete. This saves you money on regular support, and allows you to devote that time and resources into other areas, like digital strategy or building new features.

Three – Migrating is easier than it's ever been

If you’ve been through a redesign of a website, you know that one of the most daunting tasks is getting all of the content you want to keep migrated and configured properly inside your new website. In this area, Drupal 8 has seen a major leap forward.

Drupal 8 can read the database from a Drupal 6 or 7 site, and pull in configurations and other settings in addition to the actual content. Practically speaking, this removes what was previously a major task for content migrations: writing all of the code that retrieves and assembles the existing site’s content. Now, Drupal 8 assembles it for you. In some cases, this could cut the time to do a content migration in half.

We’ve been enjoying building new projects in Drupal 8, some of which we will be able to share with you soon. Until then, if you have questions about Drupal 8 that you’d like us to touch upon, or if you’re wondering if Drupal 8 can work for you, get in touch.

Acquia Developer Center Blog: Debugging TWIG templates in Drupal 8 with PhpStorm and XDebug

Planet Drupal - 25 August 2016 - 6:57am

Lots of people think that template engines like Twig cannot be interactively debugged. I heard this several times as an argument against template engine, and for using legacy php processing like phptemplate (standard in Drupal 7).

Well, it’s not entirely true.

Aram Boyajyan: Integrating your custom module with MultiBlock in Drupal 7

Planet Drupal - 25 August 2016 - 4:55am
Integrating your custom module with MultiBlock in Drupal 7 Thu, 25/08/2016 - 13:55

One of the "late to the party" features of Drupal 8 is the ability to assign the same block to multiple locations in the theme. Drupal 7 still lacks this feature in the core, but it's easy to achieve it by using a contributed module such as MultiBlock.
