myDropWizard.com: Drupal 6 security update for Remember Me

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 05/03/2017 - 20:10

As you may know, Drupal 6 has reached End-of-Life (EOL) which means the Drupal Security Team is no longer doing Security Advisories or working on security patches for Drupal 6 core or contrib modules - but the Drupal 6 LTS vendors are and we're one of them!

Today, there is a Moderately Critical security release for the Remember Me module.

Remember Me adds a "Remember me" checkbox to the login form.

It had a bug where it would override the session cookie lifetime, regardless of whether the user checked "Remember me" or not. This could affect applications that set the session cookie lifetime to a very short value, like banking websites.

(A note about the timing of this release: The Drupal 7 fix was released on April 23rd, however, we don't have any customers who depend on this module. So, it falls outside of the set of modules that we usually release security patches for on the same day they are released. But this is a module we like, so we decided to port the fix! :-))

Here you can download the Drupal 6 patch.

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the Remember Me module, we recommend you update immediately!

If you'd like all your Drupal 6 modules to receive security updates and have the fixes deployed the same day they're released, please check out our D6LTS plans.

Note: if you use the myDropWizard module (totally free!), you'll be alerted to these and any future security updates, and will be able to use drush to install them (even though they won't necessarily have a release on Drupal.org).

WordPress Based Website Development - Must know coding - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Wed, 05/03/2017 - 17:56
We need a lot of work done on several of our websites, if the job is done correctly we will likely be using you for a lot of jobs going forward as well. Our websites are currently down, and we need to get them back up working properly ASAP.
Must speak proficient English.
Also - please provide an hours estimate for the job.

We need someone who knows what they are doing with code, as there will likely need to be work done on the back end.

The group of sites are all sitting on our hosting account on GoDaddy mainstemsports.com.

The source of our issues can somewhat be described below:
When I pulled up mainstemsports.com that it is showing a “Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/content/82/12836482/html/wp-config.php on line 28” error. I don’t want to combine unrelated projects, but the fact that these sites are on the same hosting account raise some concern that one of the WordPress sites was hacked and is infecting all sitting on the same hosting account.

When I inspected the index.php file in the /mresources directory (that is the home directory of the Mercer Asset multi-site), it definitely looked like some sort of injection attack took place. If you look at the screenshot below, the @include line is attempting to do exactly that.

I was able to login to the WP dashboard fine, and when I looked at the Mercer Asset Partners dash, there are a number of plug-ins that require updating, as well as the WordPress core. Also, there are at least three plug-ins that are asking for re-authentication, and four that are disabled due to missing plug-in files.

Ideally, we could ask GoDaddy to restore a backup. Then, we can inspect files to remove any suspected hacks, install WordFence (WordPress plug-in that will defend against future hacking attempts).

If it is possible we need to do a clean WordPress install and wipe out everything but the content to get everything up and running again ASAP.

OpenLucius: Drupal 8 development: non-content | Part 1/3: Backend configuration form

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 05/03/2017 - 17:20

Within a Drupal 8 website, there are usually a number of texts that the content manager must be able to manage but that are not real content items.

We resolve this by making a user-friendly configuration form in the backend of Drupal 8, accessible to content managers. This allows us to make sure that all non-content is easy to manage, so that content managers do not have to dig through all kinds of screens in a technical backend to find the correct settings.

Need SEO Audit of Keyword Density - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Wed, 05/03/2017 - 17:04
I am in need of a website audit for keyword density on a client's site. Specifically, I need someone to go through all of the pages and posts on the site and compile a report for me with the following:

- Keyword density for specific keyword
- Page URL's which contain the specific keyword in the content of the page/post

From there, I need help with decreasing the amount of pages that are containing this focus keyword as to help a singular page rank higher for the keyword.

Thank you

Acquia Lightning Blog: Lightning's Oxford Comma Helper

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 05/03/2017 - 14:58
Lightning's Oxford Comma Helper phenaproxima Wed, 05/03/2017 - 10:58

(This was originally posted on Medium, and re-posted here by the author.)

I added a useful function to the Lightning distribution of Drupal 8! Its purpose is to apply the Oxford comma (with the final conjunction) to an array of strings, returning a single nicely formatted string.

I did this because I don’t enjoy seeing this kind of thing littered throughout Drupal:

The following file types are accepted: gif png jpg txt pdf doc

It gets the point across, and clearly, but it feels so…careless to me. A little polish wouldn’t hurt. Now, if you’re using Lightning, you can generate the string like so:

use Drupal\lightning_core\Element; echo 'The following file types are accepted: ' . Element::oxford(['gif', 'png', 'jpg', 'txt', 'pdf', 'doc']);

This will produce “The following file types are accepted: gif, png, jpg, txt, pdf, and doc”. Much nicer! In fact, this opens the door to smoother phrasing in general:

Element::oxford(['gif', 'png', 'jpg']) . ' files are acceptable.';

This will produce the even nicer “gif, jpg, and png files are acceptable.” Yowza!

Element::oxford() will default to using ‘and’ as the final conjunction, but you can override that:

Element::oxford(['apples', 'oranges', 'mangoes'], 'or');

This will produce “apples, oranges, or mangoes”.

The function is smart enough to not apply the Oxford comma if there are fewer than three items. So this:

Element::oxford(['foo', 'bar']);

...will produce “foo and bar”.

I think you get the idea. Go forth, Lightning users, and generate smoother, more grammatically correct lists of items!

BlackMesh: One more down: DrupalCon Baltimore

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 05/03/2017 - 13:24

This past week, Baltimore definitely earned its nickname – “Charm City.”

That’s because I just got back from there after attending my fifth North American DrupalCon with the BlackMesh team. We had an amazing week full of productive talks, seeing old friends, and making new ones.

The BlackMesh team went into this conference with focus on our government and security services. However, with the wide range of diverse attendees, I was surprised to find myself having great conversations about the services we provide in healthcare, education, and finance markets as well.

Aside from meeting new people, it was great having a lot of our current clients stop by the BlackMesh booth to say hi and talk shop – it was great to see you all again!

Speaking of customers, we were thrilled that our very own Ron Johnson, BlackMesh Sales Engineer, had the opportunity to discuss the work we’ve done with the Sierra Club migrating their Drupal 7 site from a Windows-based platform to a fully managed cloud solution. If you missed it, you can check out the presentation here.

Our president, Eric Mandel, attended this year’s Government Summit. It was a day dedicated to panel discussions, break-out sessions, and case studies pertaining to Drupal initiatives for city, state, and federal governments. Eric shared with me some key takeaways from the summit:

  1. Drupal 8 is definitely ready for government sites. In fact, the platform is already being used for a number of sites at varying levels of government.
  2. Security, compliance, and accessibility are major concerns for government site deployments. While security and compliance have been a priority for quite a while, accessibility is a more recent area of focus for developing government sites.
  3. The multisite capabilities and accessibility improvements offered by Drupal 8 are perfect fits when it comes to meeting the needs of local and federal government agencies.

Thank you to everyone who attended, and particularly those of you who stopped by our booth. It was great to have attendees – particularly first time DrupalCon-ers – come up to our booth because they’ve heard about our work in the Drupal community. It’s a great feeling, and we can’t help but wonder if seeing attendees wearing BlackMesh shirts from previous DrupalCons sparked their interest in us (our t-shirts are a real crowd-pleaser every year)!

DrupalCon is one of our most meaningful and constructive events of the year. Introducing more of the Drupal Community to the BlackMesh brand entails hard work, but is a lot of fun. The Drupal Association does a great job of getting everyone involved in the event and pulling in more resources from different industries. For that, we’re very appreciative and are already looking forward to the next conference.

We’ll see you at the next DrupalCon!
