Drupal 8 coming (queue suspenseful music)! One of the HUGE things with Drupal 8 is this term called "headless Drupal". Don't worry the Drupal drop isn't in any danger of losing precious head real estate, rather headless Drupal refers to using a different client-side (front-end) framework then the back end Drupal framework. From what I have read the goal is to have Drupal become the preferred back-end content management system.
In this episode we cover the Drupal Subuser module. This module makes it easy to allow your users to manage other users on your site. This works great if you want to allow a site manager to be able to add in users of a specific role, but not have access to the full Drupal User Administration pages.
In this installment of the Daily Dose of Drupal, we are looking not at a module, but rather how to exclude a node from a view using the node/content ID.
The video explanation will put a lot more context around exactly what I mean, but the general idea is using a view we will be able to exclude the current node id we are on (grabbed from the URL) from the view. In other words, if you are on a page about grasshoppers the view possibly on the sidebar that displays other insects won't have the grasshopper listed (ie since we are already on this page).
Sometimes you need to display something dynamically based on the page the user is currently viewing. Sure you can accomplish some of this with blocks, or even just panels, but sometimes it's nice to have the best of both worlds.
You ask and you shall receive. That is exactly what happened. Roman, the supporter of the Range Module, asked us to review his module. So that is what we did.
Today, there exist many different options to digest content. One of the most popular options is Apple products like the iPhone and iPad. A unique thing about iOS is that they use specific icons when users want to add your website as a bookmark on their home screens. This icon is then used to quickly launch your website, similar to how you launch a bookmark in your browser.
Normally, websites don't have this icon available so what almost always ends up happening is Apple using a screen shot of the webpage as the icon. Having a generic screen shot can effect your branding message.
The Drupal 7 Interval Field module provides a simple way to create a duration or interval field on any Drupal 7 field-able entity. A common use for this might be on a content type that generally keeps track of dates. Sometimes it easier to summarize a group of dates to a user or visitor using an interval field rather than selecting multiple dates.
An interval field is useful for keeping track of data such as:
In An Introduction to Git Part 4, you learned the basics of Git branches. You are now ready to push your Git repository to a Git hosting service such as Github or Bitbucket. After that, we will bring it all together and discuss possible ways to use Git in your next Drupal project.
