In some cases Internet Explorer uses may accidently hit the compatibility mode button in their browser, causing them to see the site in a dated rendering engine (most often internet explorer 7). The most common way of fixing this is to set a header. In Drupal if you would like to force edge mode for internet explorer you can use the following snippet…
“…my understanding that [how the large mail services identify Spam emails] was based primarily on keywords, number of links and bulk traits is really out of date. While every mail service has their own methods, the large ones, like GMail and Yahoo!, are doing big data analysis and establishing sender reputations based on how often their emails are actually opened and/or read. You probably have a sender score, and you want it to be a good one.”
…I’ve been getting a lot of questions about Content Strategy. What is it? What books and blogs should people read to learn about it? What conferences should folks attend and who are the experts in the field?
I thought I would assemble my favorite Content Strategy resources into a list that has everything all in one place for folks who, like me, are new to this field. This makes it easier to find for those who are interested, not to mention easier for me to share when I get questions.
Nice summary of some modules that integrate with Views (Drupal) to cool effect.
FooTable plugin makes it really easy to create responsive HTML tables that look great on small devices. Using a concept called “breakpoints”, you can define which column should be displayed or hidden when the table is being viewed using a mobile or monitor.
Click through to see a sample “joyride” (a.k.a. a walk-through tour or visual tutorial of the kind you see on a site that has just added new features or changed something around, to bring it to the users’ attention).
So your boss just made ‘copywriter’ a de facto addition to your job description, and the only writing you’ve done since graduation is with To: fields or with two thumbs.
Take heart. With some basic guidelines (grouped by level of difficulty), you can make your writing easier to read and easier to engage than much of what’s out there on the wild wild web…
We’ve been strategizing, evaluating & deploying the Government of Canada’s (GoC) Drupal 7 Web eXperience Toolkit (WxT) since it was first released over a year ago. We’ve implemented this for government agencies inside & outside the GoC because it is clear that so many agencies need to meet the dual challenge of a site which is both bilingual & accessible.
The Drupal Variant of the Web eXperience Toolkit is an open platform for web publishing which has a critical mass of public sector agencies collaborating with it publicly in GitHub. It is also exciting to see institutions like the University of Ottawa adopting it because of their need to ensure that their website is fully bilingual and meets WCAG 2.0 AA.
In the North Philadelphia neighborhood of Kensington, residents are taking a hands-on approach to addressing hunger and malnutrition in their community. They’ve grown gardens on rooftops, turned vacant lots into mini-parks and recently had a ribbon-cutting ceremony on a state-of-the-art aquaponic greenhouse that will provide fruits, vegetables and fresh fish to area residents. Many of the efforts are organized through a non-profit Christian organization called The Simple Way — self-described “ordinary radicals” who have lived in the area for some 15 years. Shane Claiborne, a co-founder of The Simple Way, joined some of his neighbors to share their story of a community in transformation.
A plain Drupal installation does not provide everything that is required so, here are the basic steps to optimize it to the last detail.
Building Maps with OpenLayers in Drupal 7
You would think by now that maps would be all sorted out in Drupal 7, you would be wrong. Maps in Drupal, or anywhere, have never really been sorted out. Maps are a complicated tangle of moving parts. Starting a new project that needs maps can be a challenge. Fortunately, there is a solution with OpenLayers…
Features is a popular module that’s been circulating around in the Drupalsphere for over three years. For those unfamiliar, it creates a module out of a set of configurations and entities from a Drupal site, capturing it in code, therefore allowing you to easily recreate the same configurations and entities on another site (or the same site for that matter).
Using Features is a critical tool to create maintainable websites and makes pushing configuration changes between server environments really easy and Drush is a Drupal developer’s best friend.
Display Suite allows site builders to customise how content is displayed. When I say content, I mean nodes, users and taxonomy pages as a basic example. At a lower level, you are modifying the display of an entity. All major pieces of content like nodes, users and taxonomy terms are simply entities.
