Language English It's been a while since I quick benchmarked Drupal 7 on PHP7. But at the time of that writing it was still not possible to benchmark D8 in PHP7, there were too many compatibility issues that simply would not let D8 boot on PHP7. There is D8 on PHP7 initiative in this queue issue at Drupal.org that has helped get D8 working on PHP7. More articles...

Drupal. I didnt come to Drupal code 14 years ago, I came for the community and stayed for the functionality. That is part why I never liked the "Come for the code, stay for the community" slogan. Sure, it is a perfect cheesy slogan. If all you want attract are coders in the community, it is even a perfect slogan. For a perfect community, of perfect happy coders. We have got to learn to address...

I recently had to switch profiles for this website. In the process of doing that, I immediately afterwards said “wow, I feel like other people have had this issue”. Sure enough they have… on this blog early last year by our own @aitala in the post How to Remove Drupal Install Profile.

            I’ve been hearing about Yeoman for quite some time now. Pretty much since the project took off, or soon after. As a tool born in the Javascript community, I came across this little gem when I was learning about Node.js and the different tools and frameworks available for it, either in my free time, or as part of my labs time at my company. Sadly, I...

Launching a website is just the beginning of a process. Websites need nurturing and care over the long run to stay relevant and effective. This is even more true for a service or tool such as LibraryEdge.org. Why would users come back if they can only use the provided service once or can’t see progress over time? And how can you put that love and care into the service if it is not self-funded?...

At the time of this writing, just under 300,000 websites use the Drupal Backup and Migrate module.  It is an great tool for moving databases from production back to staging and development servers, and it is an essential tool for automatic backups of the database and files of the production server. About a year ago, Version 3.0 was released, which integrated the offsite functionality from...

Language Undefined If only non-Finns could easily pronounce it, I think "yhteisöllisyys" would be a perfect motto for Drupal. To explain what it means, I dragged Lauri Eskola, Drupal Craftsman from Druid.fi, away from the contribution sprints at DrupalCamp Brighton 2015 long enough for him to fill me in on that, as well as his trip to Drupal Camp Delhi 2015, what he's...

INTRO Drupal allows you to easily change the order of your displayed fields using the Manage Display option for your content types but it does not allow you to change the order of the title field (because this field is rendered directly from the node template). But there may be times that you want to display your custom field(s) before the title field. For example, if you have an image field that...
