Nacho Digital: New HTML validation method from GoDaddy (and how to configure using apache)

Thu, 02/09/2017 - 23:43
div class=field field-name-field-intro field-type-text-long field-label-hidden view-mode-rssdiv class=field-itemsdiv class=field-item evenNot sure who#039;s to blame, but we have a new HTML validation method from GoDaddy. It is an improvement from the quot;none HTML validation at allquot; phase they went through, but took me a while to make it work with apache. The problem was the dot/hidden directory they request to put your validation code in: /.well-known/pki-validation/godaddy.html/div/div/divdiv class=field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden view-mode-rssdiv class=field-itemsdiv class=field-item even property=content:encodedpIn my case there were a couple of reasons why this was difficult:/p ulliI didn't know about the hidden directory (.) block in Apache./li liIn my case some domains run the whole site over HTTPS, so I needed to make the new rules co-exist with the old HTTPS redirection rules./li liI have a mixture of hostings. For some sites I control apache, so I could use Virtual Host configurations. But for others (like the ones running on Acquia) I need to create .htaccess rules./li /ulpThe solution was much simpler than I anticipated, but quite difficult to debug. Finally I made it work for both environments./p pI could have used the a href=https://uk.godaddy.com/help/verify-domain-ownership-html-or-dns-7452DNS ownership verification/a method, but in my case that means I would need to involve the people owning the domain. In my experience that takes longer and it can become really involved when owner doesn't know anything about DNS./p/div/div/div

Jeff Geerling's Blog: Preserve the ability to Quick Edit nodes when theming node templates!

Unfortunately, this means that content admins (who tend to emlove/em things like contextual links—at least when they work) and up not being able to hover over content to edit it./p pThere are two ways you can make things better without entirely disabling these handy modules:/p/div/div/div

Drupal.org blog: So long, and thanks for all the issues

div class=field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hiddendiv class=field-itemsdiv class=field-item evenpimg alt= height=621 src=/files/ballons.jpg width=1600 //p pI am happy and sad to share the news today that I am leaving the Drupal Association for an exciting new adventure./p pI've been volunteering for Drupal.org for a while before I joined the Association as a staff member in April 2012. Before that I never actually thought you can be paid to do something you volunteer your free time for because you enjoy doing it so much./p pIt was also my first remote job. Back then it was not as common. I clearly remember first talking to a href=https://www.drupal.org/u/webchick rel=nofollowAngie/a, and my initial response was You are crazy. I am literally on the other side of the world. Which she didn't find to be of any consequence./p pIt's been a wonderful (almost) 5 years. I've learned a lot, and grew. I've traveled a lot and met lots of fantastic people. I watched the Association grow. Our engineering team grew as well from 2 to 11, which was exciting but also challenging to be a part of. We've done some great things on Drupal.org. Of course, there are so many many more I wish we'd done. :)/p pThe time has come however to move on to the new challenges./p pThanks to all the volunteers who worked with me during all these years. You were so helpful and generous with your time./p pThanks to the staff members for being wonderful human beings, for your support, and laughs, for becoming a family./p pI am incredibly sad to leave our staff, and especially the Engineering team. They are a smaller team now, and I know just how hard it will be to maneuver all the requests coming from all the different parts of the community with the limited resources they now have. So please be nice to them./p pAs for the next steps, I am looking forward to joining the DA alumni club, which includes some of my closest friends. And I will be around. You will probably see me at the next DrupalCon. Come say hi. And no, I will not fix your webmasters' queue issue. br /  /p p---br / Photo from a href=https://www.flickr.com/photos/blacktailbooks/4794028171 rel=nofollowFlickr/a./p/div/div/div

Mediacurrent: 5 Steps to Identify the Right Project Management Methodology

Creativity is essential to success for the team and especially for the leader who must communicate, listen, enable, motivate, and lead the team to meet the needs of the internal and external stakeholders.  A project manager lacking creativity is like a soft, lightly stuffed animal – he or she will just flop around, jumping from one idea to the next without any purpose./p

Dries Buytaert: Sharing innovation with your competitors

Thu, 02/09/2017 - 10:55
pfigure class=figurediv class=img style=border: 1px solid #ccc; display: inline-block img src=http://buytaert.net/files/cache/blog/sharing-innovation-with-competitors-742x1114.jpg style=display:block alt= //div /figure/p pSome of the largest brands in the world are emerging as a href=http://buytaert.net/who-sponsors-drupal-developmentleading sponsors and contributors of Drupal/a. Pfizer, for example, has been using Drupal to improve its internal content workflow processes. Not only is Pfizer a major user of Drupal, they are also a href=https://buytaert.net/moving-the-drupal-8-workflow-initiative-alongmaking their Drupal improvements available for everyone's benefit/a, including their competitors. This kind of innovation and collaboration model is relatively unheard of and is less likely to happen with proprietary software. /p pAnother great example is Boston.gov. Last year the a href=http://buytaert.net/city-of-boston-launches-boston-gov-on-drupalCity of Boston migrated Boston.gov to Drupal/a. Shortly after the launch of Boston.gov, a href=https://www.boston.gov/news/bostongov-now-open-source-projectthey released Boston.gov's source code to the public domain/a. By open-sourcing their project, the city of Boston is challenging the prevailing model. Anyone can see the code that makes Boston.gov work, point out problems, suggest improvements, or use the code for their own city, town or organization. /p pThe City of Boston isn't the only government agency that is changing their way of innovating and collaboration. In 2012, the a href=http://buytaert.net/white-house-contributes-to-drupalWhite House released the code behind We the People/a, the Drupal-based application that allows the American people to submit petitions directly to the President of the United States. By releasing the code that supports We the People, any government in the world can take advantage of the project and implement it in their own community. /p pNext, the international media group Hubert Burda Media employs a team of six Drupal developers that build and maintain a href=https://www.drupal.org/project/thunderThunder/a, a Drupal 8 distribution that can be used by any of the 164 brands that Burda supports. Last year, a href=http://buytaert.net/thunder-a-drupal-distribution-for-publishersBurda open-sourced Thunder/a, allowing competitors to benefit from Burda's development, know-how and best practices. As part of their work on Thunder, Burda is an active contributor to a href=http://buytaert.net/moving-the-drupal-8-workflow-initiative-alongDrupal 8's media initiative/a. Burda is also inviting its competitors to contribute to Thunder./p pSome may wonder what is beneficial about sharing innovation with competitors. Today, technology is becoming more and more complex and the rate of change is accelerating. It is becoming increasingly difficult for any one organization to build an entire solution and do it well. By contributing back and by working together, these organizations can keep a competitive edge over those that don't use open source and collaborate. What looks strange to some, is actually perfectly logical to others. Those that contribute to open source are engaging in a virtuous cycle that benefits their own projects. It is a tide that raises all boats; a model that allows progress to accelerate due to wider exposure and public input. It's a story that is starting to play out in every industry -- from pharmaceutical companies, to media and publishing to government. /p h3Challenge the prevailing model/h3 pAs I wrote in my a href=https://buytaert.net/acquia-retrospective-20162016 Acquia retrospective/a, I believe that the use of open source software has finally crossed the chasm -- most organizations don't think twice about using open source software. The next step is to encourage more organizations to not just use open source, but to contribute to it. Open source offers a completely different way of working, and fosters an innovation model that is not possible with proprietary solutions. Pfizer, Boston.gov, the White House and Burda are remarkable examples of how organizations benefit from not only using but contributing to open source. /p pIn order to help people understand the power of this model we have to change the lens through which organizations see the world. It's hard to disrupt the status quo, but fortunately we now have powerful examples that highlight how great organizations are using open source to change their operating model./p pIf you want to help challenge the prevailing model at your own organization, here are the basic steps that your organization can implement today:/p olliEmbrace open source in your organization and make it successful./li liAssess whether any of your customizations are truly custom or if they can be used by others./li liContribute back your customizations to the open source project, advance it in the open and encourage others to contribute./li /ol

Agiledrop.com Blog: AGILEDROP: Problems about diversity do not come from the Drupal Community

Make no mistake, I thought about it before too, but just not in that large extent. Nevertheless, the problem seems an important one to me, but it far surpasses the borders of a »small« Drupal Community. Including the copies of a men's lifestyle and entertainment magazine in the welcome bag for attendees on Drupal Camp Munich was, in my opinion, far from appropriate for such event. We know that besides the negative comments, one of the speakers canceled his session due to the lack of action and… a href=http://www.agiledrop.com/blog/problems-about-diversity-do-not-come-drupal-communityREAD MORE/a

While I’ve heard them called different things, I prefer to call them components. Some examples include the header, footer, main navigation, logo, slideshow and so on. Most of these can be broken down into smaller components as well. For example, maybe the header is a specific layout that includes the main navigation and the logo./p
