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 ;-)

This module allows for Single Sign On between netFORUM and Drupal site. Users can sign in to Drupal site using their netFORUM credentials.
We have additional modules available that compliment this SSO module. Listed below

Let's assume you have enabled workbench_moderation + multilingual content. Now you've some published content in multiple languages.
Without this module you are not able to create published versions in just one language, without unpublishing the others.
Please use it with caution
