Aaron's second instalment in the 'one day design and build' series is made even more challenging with actual client work and not so many monsters this time round.
My last attempt at this I found to be an interesting and pretty rewarding challenge to undertake.
A description of the Viewport module for Drupal, already available for Drupal 8
Last week I had the chance to finish off the port of the Viewport module to Drupal 8.
A quick start guide to getting going with Drupal on a CentOS server.
Before I start, I make no claim this is the best way to set up CentOS. I'm sure it isn't the only way, and I'm sure there will be other, more thorough, howto articles about the general setup of CentOS that are much better than this one.
Important facts about the ongoing #AberdeenCloud situation and how it might affect their customers and our own.
A short tragedy on the demise of #AberdeenCloud.
UPDATE 1: #AberdeenCloud have made the platform available for 36 hours, as of last night, 30th June 2016. You can, for a short time only, get files and backups again. Sounds like the platform will be available until some time around Saturday lunchtime, 2nd July 2016.
Drush sql-sanitize cleanses the core user information, but what about all those profile fields you added?
Head of support and hosting, Greg Harvey, explains what a denial of service attack is and how you can protect yourself.
Not many people have been unfortunate enough to be at the sharp end of a serious denial of service (DoS) attack.
So Aaron's inaugural post on the Code Enigma blog he takes on the challenge of designing and building a website in a day without templates or frameworks.
I’m writing this paragraph before undertaking the challenge and this point I’m not sure of how this will turn out.
Plenty of sites use the Rules module, and plenty of sites need to perform data migrations on a regular basis. Learn how to easily work around rules when they get in the way of a migration.
Most Drupal sites make use of the Rules module in some way, and plenty of Drupal sites use the Migrate module to perform either one-off or regular migrations of external data into the site.
Even if you are an experienced front end developer who structures CSS files coherently, concisely and into something that resembles fine art, there are still ways of squeezing a little more performance out of your CSS files by reducing their file size using post processing.
Fairly simple. You'll notice that there's no particular order to the rules, and it could be better optimised. It's rendered out like this.
Drupal may or may not have been the cause of the already infamous Mossack Fonseca leak, but if it was, it would never have happened if they'd kept their software up to date.
In light of the much talked about #PanamaPapers leak, it seems there has never been a better time to talk about keeping your software up to date.
Drupal security audits are not a simple job, since security holes can be both in code and in the way the site is configured. This article collates the most common things to look for when auditing a Drupal site.
Site audits are one of the services that some of our clients have requested from us in the past.
Learn how to use custom dimensions and metrics with Google Analytics and Drupal to get in-depth reports of your users engagement.
Certainly, there's no need to introduce Google Analytics as an analytics tool for websites.
This blog post covers the steps needed to implement a custom shortcode WYSIWYG widget for Drupal 7, to give site editors with all the flexibility they need to create content.
Giving editors full control over the elements they want to place in their contents is not always an easy task.
Welcome aboard the board to Pascal Morin, senior developer and long-serving stalwart of Code Enigma.
Over the last few months the sitting board of Code Enigma (Steve Cowie and myself) have been doing a lot of thinking about the future of Code Enigma, and the process of moving past the startup stage to become a thriving company over the long-term.
We present in this publicly available whitepaper detailed information on how you can integrate the Drupal search experience with Microsoft SharePoint 2013 search, to provide a seamless and complete search experience for intranet users in Drupal.
One of the classic results of this is SharePoint being used as an internal document store.
Having gone through infrastructure, virtualisation and operating system, we arrive at the software layer. What choices have Code Enigma made, and why?
We've already explained we're closely tied to Linux for many reasons, and Debian specifically. But what do we put on top of that? For the purposes of this post, I'll focus on PHP hosting.
How to use a views-provided filter to search content across multiple content types.
When building a Drupal site, it's very easy to be tempted to build the data model based on the features and options that one can get out of the box in other contributed modules (and I had my rant about it
How to allow for A-Z sorting and search by title features at the same time in your search pages. Solving a common (but not trivial) use case in Drupal with Search API and aggregated fields.
Search API is a powerful beast for Drupal 7.
CKEditor is a superb WYSIWYG text editor and when used together with the CKEditor module for Drupal it's a great solution for enabling editors to easily add HTML to content. A common issue site builders seems to have is changing the list of styles that are available in the Styles drop down combo. Here's the salient tip for getting it working!
CKEditor comes with a Styles drop down combo that enables editors to select some text and then decorate it by selecting from a list of available styles:
