When you share a post of your Drupal site via Facebook, it will automatically detect the images of your node for you to choose. But sometimes, it does not detect any images, or the detected images are not what you want. How can you deal with that? An easy method is uploading the main image manually. That's fine, because you are the...

We all like decorated items than normal ones. Everyone like to add icon/image to their site's menu links but we need some tricks to add that into our drupal site's menu link. I am going to show you various methods to add an icon/image to the drupal menu links. 1. theme_menu_link() :  It would return html elements for the menu and it's submenu.

I was made aware that it’s been close to a year since I actually did a demo of the reason that I contribute so many modules to drupal. org. For those that don’t know, the reason I exist is a project called ELMS Learning Network. It is a Drupal 7 based deployment methodology that takes the many parts of an LMS and fragments them across a series of drupal distributions.

Cheeky Monkey broke my Foundation cherry.  It’s been a pleasurable experience.Coming from frameworks like Zen Grids (+ Drupal Theme) and Susy2 Grids, I can appreciate (and need) some major control over the grids.  I have to say though, foundation does a bang up job of letting you control the ‘big stuff’ with ease, and still being able to get down into the nitty griddy(see what I did there?) --...

With the first party API building tools built into Drupal 8 core, there’s been a lot of talk about building semantic APIs in Drupal; when, how, and why you should or should not. However, a commonly overlooked piece of this picture is how to go about actually consuming these APIs. And as it turns out, consuming an API, even a well designed one, can present a number of challenges. That...

At the the DrupalNorth code sprint, I spent some time chatting about code linters, and how to use them to ensure your code conforms to coding standards. So, I thought I'd share the process that works for me. If you find a better process, please blog about it and post a link in the comments! This tutorial assumes: You write or modify code in a language like PHP, JavaScript, CSS, Bash, etc....

Learning to Strategize & Plan with Help from an Inanimate Friend Ever wondered what the best sounding board for a debugging plan might be? If you could describe the ideal listener, which qualities come to mind? A wish list might include: patient, calm, totally uncritical and not rushing off to the next fire that needs putting out. Hard to find someone who fits the bill, am I right? Well,...

We all know one of the best things about Drupal is the community. If you’re looking to learn more or make connections, there’s almost always a meet-up, camp or other event nearby.

At DrupalCon Los Angeles I gave a Core Conversation with the unassuming title "No", where I argued that in order for the Drupal project to be successful in the long term, it needs to have a clear and explicit focus. While in part it was an excuse for me to work Grumpy Cat pictures into a DrupalCon presentation, the broader point is one that I believe bears reiterating....

It has only gone a few days, but my first Kickstarter campaign is already delivering new learning and understanding. As I looked over what happened during the time I've been sleeping it struck me: I am designing and creating my own responsibility!   ...and I like it.   Digital Identity leads the way Yes, this is clearest proof so far that my search for developing a better working...
