One of the most useful features of Drupal 8 is the migration framework in core, and there are already plenty of plugins to work with different sources that are available in contributed modules.  When writing your own code, it must always be debugged. As migrations can only be started with Drush, the debugging can be a bit challenging. And it gets even more...

In this tutorial, I'm going to explain how you can use the new Group module to organize your site's users. Group is extremely powerful Drupal 8 module. At the basic level, Group allows you to add extra permissions to content.  At the more advanced level, this module is potentially a Drupal 8 replacement for Organic Groups.

Styling the HTML <select> tag to appear similar in all the different browsers is a task unto itself.  It seems on each new site , I find myself back visiting this post by Ivor Reić for a CSS only solution.  My task for today is to use this idea to theme an exposed filter on a view. The first thing we need to do is add a div around the select.  We can do this by editing the select's twig...

The goal of any company is to reduce costs and increase profit, especially when it comes to online and IT projects. When an IT undertaking is a transitional effort, it makes sense to consider staff augmentation and outsourcing. Consider the marketing efforts of one worldwide corporation. Until recently, each brand and global region built and hosted its own websites...

As we move towards an ever more structured digital world of APIs, metatags, structured data, etc., and as the need for content to take on many forms across many platforms continues to grow, the humble “body” field is struggling to keep up. No longer can authors simply paste a word processing document into the body field, fix some formatting issues and call content complete. Unfortunately, that...

During some migration operations on a Drupal 8 site, I needed to make an HTTP request that took > 30 seconds to return all the data... and when I ran the migration, I'd end up with exceptions like: Migration failed with source plugin exception: Error message: cURL error 28: Operation timed out after 29992 milliseconds with 2031262 out of 2262702 bytes received (see http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl...

Drupal 8 introduced the use of Semantic Versioning, which practically means the use of three levels of version numbers. The current release is Drupal 8.1.8. While increments of the last number are done for bugfixes, the middle number is incremented when we add new features in a backwards compatible way. That allows us to add big new things to Drupal 8 while it is still compatible with all your...

At Mediacurrent we architected and built a Drupal site for a department of a prominent U.S. university several years ago. As part of maintaining and supporting the site over the years, we have observed how well it has performed in search engine rankings, often out-performing other sites across campus built on other platforms.
