WP Dev converting to Drupal, and I have a few questions

  • I come from a WP background and I'm learning Drupal on my own because that's what my company is going to be using going forward. We're apparently hiring a third-party company to build the site but I want to be familiar enough to make any inevitable fixes or changes that we'll need.

    And I know the learning curve is steep. I've been picking up Twig Templating and their block structure. I'm sure I'll get used to that eventually, but I have a few questions:

    1) Do I really have to clear the cache every single time? I'm designing a page and literally every tweak I make to CSS seems to require a 15-second cache clear. What's up with that?

    2) Is there an easy way to hide the toolbar? I literally spent 30 minutes troubleshooting modules that ended up being deprecated with no success. I'd be happy for a code solution if I could even find one.

    I'm sure there will be more questions but these are the two most relevant at the moment. It's odd because I keep reading that Drupal is more dev-friendly but it seems to be inserting its own code in places I can't disable. I apologize if this comes across hostile or defeatist, I'm just frustrated and I tried to edit myself.

Agiledrop.com Blog: AGILEDROP: DrupalCon sessions about Drupal Showcase

  • Last time, we gathered together DrupalCon Baltimore sessions about Coding and Development. Before that, we explored the area of Project Management and Case Studies. And that was not our last stop. This time, we looked at sessions that were presented in the area of Drupal Showcase. Ain’t No Body: Not Your Mama’s Headless Drupal by Paul Day from Quotient, Inc. This session explores disembodied Drupal, also known as bodiless Drupal- an application that uses Drupal’s powerful framework to do things it does well while storing the actual domain data in a remote repository. Moreover, it explores… READ MORE

Kristian Polso: Blockchain, GDPR, Migrate API... Videos from DrupalCamp Nordics 2017 are live!

  • I have just finished editing the session videos from the very first DrupalCamp Nordics. DrupalCamp Nordics 2017 was held in Helsinki, on 11th to 12th of May 2017. The event was a great success, with over 120 participants from more than 10 different countries! The topics of the sessions ranged from more high-level technology-related like Blockchain and GDPR to more practical developer-oriented matters like using the Migrate API and introduction to Drupal 8 caching.

myDropWizard.com: Drupal 6 security update for Site Verify

  • As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

    Today, there is a Moderately Critical security release for the Site Verify module to fix an Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability.

    The Site Verify module enables privilege users to verify a site with services like Google Webmaster Tools using meta tags or file uploads.

    The module doesn't sufficiently sanitize input or restrict uploads.

    See the security advisory for Drupal 7 for more information.

    Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch.

    If you have a Drupal 6 site using the Site Verify module, we recommend you update immediately.

    If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

    Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).
