17 Aug 2015Last week we attended Drupalaton for the second year in a row.

I still remember the first Drupal 7 theme I built. It was for the Singapore Gastric Cancer Consortium website, and at the time I barely knew my way around HTML and CSS.

[Fixed] Get valid RSS by adding CDATA wrappers to RSS description elements A couple weeks ago, I posted about a problem I was having getting RSS to validate because the description element contained HTML markup. The solution turned out to be as easy as I expected, once I found the right place to look. The first place I went was the Views module, where I found views-view-row-rss....

I recently had time to install and take a look at Drupal 8. I am going to share my first take on Drupal 8 and some of the hang-ups that I came across. I read a few other blog posts that mentioned not to rely too heavily on one source for D8 documentation with the rapid changing pace of D8 the information has become outdated rather quickly.
