myDropWizard.com: Most common Drupal site building pitfalls and how to avoid them! (Part 2 of 3)

Planet Drupal - 21 March 2017 - 9:24am

This is the second in a series of articles, in which I'd like to share the most common pitfalls we've seen, so that you can avoid making the same mistakes when building your sites!

myDropWizard offers support and maintenance for Drupal sites that we didn't build initially. We've learned the hard way which site building mistakes have the greatest potential for creating issues later.

And we've seen a lot of sites! Besides our clients, we also do a FREE in-depth site audit as the first step when talking to a potential client, so we've seen loads of additional sites that didn't become customers.

In the last article, we looked at security updates, badly installed module code and issues with patching modules, as well as specific strategies for addressing each of those problems. In this article, we'll look at how to do the most common Drupal customizations without patching!

NOTE: even though they might take a slightly different form depending on the version, most of these same pitfalls apply equally to Drupal 6, 7 and 8! It turns out that bad practices are quite compatible with multiple Drupal versions ;-)

Battlefront Features the Afrika Korps For Flames of War

Tabletop Gaming News - 21 March 2017 - 8:00am
I guess, if you play a game of Flames of War, you could have the British fighting against the British. To my knowledge, there’s nothing that says otherwise. But, really, people want to play the British versus the Nazis. And since we got a look at the Desert Rats book before, let’s take a look […]

Planet Drupal - 21 March 2017 - 2:27am
Recently, we had to create a security report for one of our clients about their Drupal 8 project. We described how Drupal 8 protects against most common vulnerabilities and added some project specific tests to secure as good as possible that it cannot be attacked. This resulted in a document that we thought is worth to be transferred into a series of blog posts.
