One of our members wanted to allow users to create customized information feeds in Drupal. In this tutorial, we'll show you how to do that. We'll show you how to allow users to choose only certain types of content to show. This could be useful for news sites, but also for many other types of site where users want personalized content. In this example, we're going to create a list of movies that...

Every time you create a site with drupal you may add a new contextual tab for a node or for a user. if you have used pathauto to create automatic (multilangual) aliasing of user and node url, so on, you got good urls for SEO !

DrupalCon Amsterdam is coming soon, and I can’t wait to welcome the Drupal community to this wonderful city. The conference is shaping up to be an absolutely incredible experience.

As the Simpletest sprint in Paris was exactly six years ago I feel it's a good time to remind the community how and why Simpletest was chosen especially in the light of the Simpletest hate lately. At that time we had almost no tests (compared to the massive test battery today with over 68 000 asserts) and it was paramount to allow anyone to be able to write and run tests. Drupal in 2008 was not...

When you need to dynamically display a block within a region, nothing can really beat the Context module. It allows you to define a set of conditions, that when met, executes a set of reactions. For example, you could create a context rule which adds a block to the sidebar second region (reaction) when a user is viewing an Article content type (condition). A lot of what Context does can also be...

What's new with Drupal 8? Configuration system changes Over the past month, a lot of work has gone into the configuration system. With the addition of a separate module install/uninstall step for the config import process, it's finally possible to properly synchronize configuration changes with module installations or uninstallations.

At MidCamp (Midwest Drupal camp), I found out a really fascinating thing about Drupal 8: Support for PHPUnit is going to be part of the base distribution. This means a great deal to Solutions Architects and Developers at Promet because we have been striving to integrate automated tests into our build. Perhaps you remember from my talks or previous posts, number four of my 10 Principles of...

I'm excited to announce that we've built our first Drupal-powered apps for iOS and Android. The apps are in the Android and Apple marketplace and are helped to improve one association's yearly technical conference. There are times when apps are overkill and unneeded. Frankly there are already too many apps out there. But as we as a company continue to focus on conference sites, this was an...
