We maintain dozens of Drupal sites for our clients, in a wide variety of hosting environments. Keeping all of these sites up to date could be a nightmare, but our job is made much easier thanks to the awesomeness that is Drush.
If you manage a site, but haven't yet dipped your toe in the world of...
Last week, I wrote a post about the differences between content types, taxonomies, and entities in Drupal, and how you should use each. Now, even with having a strong understanding of how to use these mechanisms, there is still plenty of room to mess up when developing a content model.
Recently a client for an "inherited" (that is, one where we weren’t the original developer) Drupal 7 site asked us to change how a series of videos were presented. They needed to collect some demographic information from site visitors before making the videos available.

A support request recently came in where a client had changed hosting for their Drupal 7 website and found that their email had ceased to work. To resolve the issue, they installed the SMTP module to use an alternative email server for sending messages from Drupal.
As a Drupal Site Builder at 4Site, Drupal allows me to create a dynamic and scalable site without any programming. If you want to add functionality to your Drupal site there is usually a module that can do it.
Drupal has been our go-to CMS for building client websites since 2007.
Over the holidays I got to take a break from Drupal and spend nearly two weeks at home with my seven-year-old son. Just like I was at his age, my son is obsessed with Legos, so we built lots and lots of Lego sets. I’m amazed at how much Lego has evolved in the past mumblemumble years.
We talk to Luke Probasco, Director of Marketing/Drupal General Manager at Townsend Security, about keeping your Drupal site safe. And on his first solo turn as host, Bryan sits down with Chanaka Perera, director of technical services at LCG, to chat about agile development.
