Wordpress developer needed to customize theme on interestingsh!t dot com - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Tue, 03/07/2017 - 17:56
Thanks for checking in and welcome to interestingsh!t.com.  We are looking for a Wordpress developer familiar with news/magazine Wordpress themes to customise our theme. You’ll get ftp and backend access to our staging environment, where you can break things. Have a look at our site to familiarise yourself with the theme:

Tasks to complete:

1. Share Buttons:

Place custom inline SumoMe share buttons and control their behaviour in CSS. Share buttons need to replace our existing share buttons and replicate their behaviour (i.e. fixed, follow on scroll in a standard post, horizontal on video posts). We will provide all SumoMe share button embed codes but here’s an example for vertical buttons on an standard post:

<a data-sumome-share-id="ce59e57b-7a51-46a0-a4c9-5ef38a12c846"></a>

2. Infinite Load

Run custom JavaScript after in infinite Ajax article load. The template can execute a JavaScript event on Infinite Ajax Load:

   jQuery(document.body).on('thb_after_infinite_load', function() {​
alert('Post Loaded');

Scripts to run:
1. Run Geo Mashup shortcode, if one exists in post-content or sidebar
2. Limit article infinite load to same post category
3. Display Facebook comments on next article
4. Run WP Viral Quiz shortcode on next article
5. Push url change on next article

Note: infinite load is turned off on the site

3. Share Counts

Display Facebook share counts on posts for both http:// and https:// post urls. We switched to https on February 14 and lost all share counts for post prior to that date. Our template registers Facebook shares like so:

$json_url = 'https://graph.facebook.com/v2.7/?id='.$this->url.'&'.$thb_fb_secret_cache.'&fields=id,share';

Our best guess to achieve this would be to tweak the url used to look up share counts on the graph by removing the “s” in https for posts published prior to February 14th 2017. There might be better ways to do it however.

Do you have an eye for excellent design? Are you a Wordpress expert? - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Tue, 03/07/2017 - 16:30
I'm looking for an experienced graphic designer/web developer hybrid who is highly proficient in updating/building B2B websites in Wordpress. This project's need for Wordpress expertise is for the sake of time-effectiveness as the work itself is junior developer stuff (e.g. creating an email confirmation HTML page) and will not require any exotic, complicated executions. The design execution is where we want to make a new, positive impression.

Our company has an all-star bench of developers, however, they are primarily devoted to prepare for our web/mobile app's out-of-beta launch. In the meantime, our simple website (< 16 pages) needs to get revamped to visually reflect a new and improved, enterprise-ready, look and feel. Also, the developer talent *must work within the limitations of our custom Wordpress theme* that we will continue to use.

Key Objectives:
- Updating the site’s look/feel with a modern, relevant style.
- Restructuring content layout and navigation to better complement the visitor’s journey down the sales funnel and improve SEO.
- Simple tweaks (e.g. creating an email sign-up confirmation landing page) to better complement existing email lead generation and analytics.
- Making sure the mobile version of the site has a continuous quality (i.e. Mobile Responsive Design) with the desktop version.

For example, check out this website: https://www.redantler.com/about -- I really like the above-the-fold design, tho not necessarily navigation, it has the clean and modern look and feel that we want. The crisp edges, bold colors, attention to kerning/line spacing/fine details, are things we want too.

You will also have intermediate to expert proficiency in the standard graphic design tools (i.e. PS, AI). I also have some proficiency in PS + AI and could help in the respective tactical efforts if it provides worthwhile efficiencies time wise.

We're looking to find someone that can start immediately.

UK Based WordPress Designer Needed (UX in Mind) - ASAP. - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Tue, 03/07/2017 - 14:46
We are looking for a website to be designed in WordPress, with the key goals being:

• Increased search rankings
• Increased phone calls
• Email subscribers

The site needs to be HTTPS, and will need to be flexible. We’ll be creating pages and resources for current customers to use.

The current site structure has 80 pages. I’m thinking the quickest and easiest way is to duplicate the current structure and content, then I can re-arrange/add content as and when.

An indirect competitor (we don't sell online) would be http://www.directheatingsupplies.co.uk/ and their site has a nice feel to it.

So, I would like to see relevant portfolio pieces where possible (see screening question).

Please mention whether you plan to use a custom design, template, or modified template with your estimated quote.

If you have a full portfolio, please leave the URL.

MD Systems blog: Drupal 8 security features: XSS

News from Planet Drupal - Tue, 03/07/2017 - 13:10
Recently, we had to create a security report for one of our clients about their Drupal 8 project. We described how Drupal 8 protects against most common vulnerabilities and added some project specific tests to secure as good as possible that it cannot be attacked. This resulted in a document that we thought is worth to be transferred into a series of blog posts.

ComputerMinds.co.uk: Drupal as a Server - Introduction

News from Planet Drupal - Tue, 03/07/2017 - 13:00

This post is the first in a series about getting Drupal to run as a persistent server, responding to requests without bootstrapping each and every time.

This is how many other application frameworks and languages run: nodejs, Rails etc.

In those systems you start some instances of your application and then they do whatever bootstrapping they need to do and then they enter an endless loop waiting for requests.

I recently upgraded our internally hosted Redmine server to run on Ruby 2.3 and during that upgrade took a look at our NewRelic monitoring for the application. Some of the page requests had an average response time of 8ms. These were page requests for logged in users. That would be amazing performance for a Drupal page.

WordPress Work From UpWork - Tue, 03/07/2017 - 09:52
I want to build a website for a training service provider, where public could register, and then select from the list of courses the ones they like, view their bookings, edit their bookings, also for the website to have the ability to add change and edit the courses list, course layout and content, course price, and details, and have a schedule management for all training, course list to be listed in categories to make it simple to search, and the website to have a search bar for simplicity, the website to have front end for public, and back-end for administration to adjust all its content, and to be bilingual (English/Arabic) the content could be sent so no need to be an Arabic oriented developer, just add the content or tell us how to add it from the administration module, the website must be responsive design to fit with all mobile devices.

[REQUEST] [HELP] [PLEASE?] A Simple, Elegant, Easy Restaurant/Food/Product Menu

Talk about plugins - Tue, 03/07/2017 - 01:10

Hello all,

I am making a website for a place that needs a simple restaurant menu. It’s almost an ACF customized dumbed down specific plugin. If you’re a developer, this would be a hit.

I was hoping for the following:

  1. A “Menu” to appear in the left column of the admin
  2. When clicked, the page would have sort of a ACF feel. Instead of adding a page for each item, there are simply custom fields you can add and subtract. Made a simple picture to help describe this dream plugin: http://i.imgur.com/562FEKI.png
  3. Just the item's name, description and price.
  4. Shortcode
  5. Styling — maybe even on the front end like in the customizer.

Simple Restaurant Menu comes very close but for some reason the spacing of the display gets messed up with my theme. (https://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-restaurant-menu/)

TL;DR I need a simple restaurant menu with easy menu item entry.

Any ideas?

Capgemini Engineering: DrupalCamp London experience

News from Planet Drupal - Tue, 03/07/2017 - 00:00

This weekend’s DrupalCamp London wasn’t my first Drupal event at all, I’ve been to 3 DrupalCon Europe, 4 DrupalCamp Dublin, and a few other DrupalCamps in Ireland and lots of meetups, but in this case I experienced a lot of ‘first times’ that I want to share.

Sponsor perspective

This was the first time I’d attended a Drupal event representing a sponsor organisation, and as a result the way I experienced it was completely different.

Firstly, you focus more on your company’s goals, rather than your personal aims. In this case I was helping Capgemini UK to engage and recruit people for our open positions. This allowed me to socialise more and try to connect with people. We also had T-shirts so it was easier to attract people if you have something free for them. I was also able to have conversations with other sponsors to see why did they sponsor the event, some were also recruiting, but most of them were selling their solutions to prospective clients, Drupal developers and agencies.

The best of this experience was the people I found in other companies and the attendees approaching us for a T-shirt or a job opportunity.

New member of Capgemini UK perspective

As a new joiner in the Capgemini UK Drupal team I attended this event when I wasn’t even a month old in the company, and I am glad I could attend this event at such short notice in my new position, I think this tells a lot about the focus on training and career development Capgemini has and how much they care about Drupal.

As a new employee of the company this event allowed me to meet more colleagues from different departments or teams and meet them in a non-working environment. Again the best of this experience was the people I met and the relations I made.

New member of the local Drupal Community perspective

I joined Capgemini from Ireland, so I was also new to the London Drupal community, and the DrupalCamp gave me the opportunity to connect and create relationships with other members of the Drupal community. Of course they were busy organising this great event, but I was able to contact some of the members, and I have to say they were very friendly when I approached any of the crew or other local members attending the event. I am very happy to have met some friendly people and I am committed to help and volunteer my time in future events, so this was a very good starting point. And again the best were the people I met.

Non-session perspective

As I had other duties I couldn’t attend all sessions. But I was able to attend some sessions and the Keynotes, with special mention to the Saturday keynote from Matt Glaman, it was very motivational and made me think anyone could evolve as a developer if they try and search the resources to get the knowledge. And the closing keynote from Danese Cooper was very inspirational as well about what Open Source is and what should be, and that we, the developers, have the power to make it happen. And we could also enjoy Malcom Young’s presentation about Code Reviews.


Closing this article I would like to come back to the best part of the DrupalCamp for me this year, which was the people. They are always the best part of the social events. I was able to catch up with old friends from Ireland, engage with people considering a position at Capgemini and introduce myself to the London Drupal community, so overall I am very happy with this DrupalCamp London and I will be happy to return next year. In the meantime I will be attending some Drupal meetups and trying to get involve in the community, so don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any question or you need my help.

DrupalCamp London experience was originally published by Capgemini at Capgemini Engineering on March 07, 2017.

ActiveLAMP: Composer FTW! RIP Drush Make?

News from Planet Drupal - Mon, 03/06/2017 - 23:30

In the modern world of web / application development, using package managers to pull in dependencies has become a de-facto standard. In fact, if you are developing enterprise software and you aren’t leveraging package managers I would go as far to say that you are doing it wrong (I’ll elaborate on this point later in the post).
