Need wordpress blog revamped - want community discussion board fixed - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Mon, 10/16/2017 - 02:30
I am a commercial real estate broker, I have a blog at www.markjensencre.com that I am looking to have overhauled and improved visually and content wise (and probably functionality so my assistant can easily update content).  Last year I paid almost $600 to get screwed on my community discussion board addition... so if you don't have experience with adding a functional community board please DO NOT APPLY.  I want a hero who has experience, not an amateur who leaves my blog worse than I did myself with wordpress the 1st time I set it up.  I want a modern clean look that is easily updated w/out having to contact a professional... I want my assistant to be able to login, add a blog post, edit the community board... and everything works smoothly!

Front-end and back-end developer to build our beautiful e-commerce website - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Sun, 10/15/2017 - 19:39
Hello! I'm looking to build a beautiful, somewhat complex website from framewires. I have the framewires and design / layout already built/designed -- in addition to the content for the site and more or less exact specifications.

We need a developer (or team) to build the site (both front-end and back-end). Half of the site will be a regular website, with content and html embeds of quizzes/contact forms. The other half of the site will be an ecommerace site that is beautiful. The entire site (besides the ecommerce 'products') is about 10-15 pages. The ecommerce aspect we will just need you to create the template and layout, and we can add all the individual products ourselves.

The direct links to the model 10 pages of the site that we've designed can be found here: triplost.landinglion.com/map

We will also need to be able to edit the content of the site ourselves -- to include updated content (i.e. new products, change photos) so I think a wordpress site may be best (???) however, we're absolutely up for what you believe is best!

Please take a look at the site and let us know if you are up for the job! We're hoping to build the site out at roughly $500-600, however have some wiggle room if need be.


Thanks,

Max

Bryan Ruby: Drupal 8.4 Available and Fixes Significant Database Caching Issues

News from Planet Drupal - Sun, 10/15/2017 - 01:58
Drupal 8.4 Available and Fixes Significant Database Caching Issues Image Bryan Ruby Sat, 10/14/2017 - 20:58

Your hosting account was found to be causing an overload of MySQL resources. What can you do? Upgrade your Drupal 8 website to Drupal 8.4 or higher.

One of my goals in rebranding my website from CMS Report to socPub was to write diverse articles beyond the topic of content management systems. Yet, here we go again with another CMS related article. The Drupal open source project recently made available Drupal 8.4 and for me this version has been a long time coming as it addresses some long standing frustrations I've had with Drupal 8 from the perspective of a site administrator. While Drupal 8.4 adds some nice new features, I'm just as excited about the bug fixes and performance improvements delivered in this new version of Drupal.

When Drupal 8 was introduced it made significant improvements in how it caches and renders pages. That's great news for websites that use Drupal's built-in caching to speed up delivery of pages or page elements. But there was one unwanted side effect to the cache enhancements, excessive growth of cache tables with tens or hundreds of thousands of entries, and gigabytes in size. For my own website it is not too uncommon to see my database reach 4 GB in size. Let's put it this way, it was no fun to receive a letter from my hosting provider that they weren't too happy of my resource usage. Worse they threatened shutting down my website if I didn't manage the database size better. Just in the nick of time for you and me, Drupal 8.4 delivers a fix to the cache growth by introducing a new default limit of 5000 rows per cache bin.

I'm still playing with this change and I haven't found a lot of documentation, but you can override the default row limit in Drupal's settings.php via the setting "database_cache_max_rows". For my site, the following settings has helped me keep my MySQL database under half a Gigabyte:

$settings['database_cache_max_rows']['default'] = 5000; $settings['database_cache_max_rows']['bins']['page'] = 500; $settings['database_cache_max_rows']['bins']['dynamic_page_cache'] = 500; $settings['database_cache_max_rows']['bins']['render'] = 1000;

For those of you that may not be ready to upgrade to Drupal 8.4 but still need to handle the oversized caching tables today, I had some luck with the Slushi cache module. An additional good summary of similar solutions for Drupal 8 versions prior to 8.4 can be found on Jeff Geerling's blog.

Notable New Features in Drupal 8.4

Of course the purpose of Drupal 8.4 isn't just to address my pet peeve about Drupal caching but also to bring Drupal users a number of new features and improvements. Some of the more significant additions and changes in Drupal that affect me and possibly you include:

Datetime Range

For non-Drupal user I know this is going to sound odd, but despite a number of community approaches there never really been a standard format for expressing a range for date or time commonly used in event and planning calendars. Drupal 8.4 addresses this missing field type with the new core Datetime Range module to support contributed modules like Calendar and shares a consistent API with other Datetime fields. Future releases may improve Views support, usability, Datetime Range field validation, and REST support.

Content Moderation and Workflow

Although I've been a longtime user of Drupal, for a two year period I managed my website on the Agility CMS. One of the benefits of Agility over Drupal were the workflow and moderation tools delivered "out of the box". The ability to moderate content becomes especially important in websites that have multiple authors and editors collaborating together and in need to mark whether the content is a draft, ready for review, in need of revision, ready to publish, etc. With Drupal 8.4 the Workflow modules is now stable and provides the framework to build additional modules such as the much anticipated Content Moderation module. Currently, the new core Content Moderation is considered experimental and beta stable so additional future changes should be expected. Content moderation workflows can now apply to any entity types that support revisions, and numerous usability issues and critical bugs are resolved in this release.

Media Handling

Another long standing issue for me has been how Drupal handles, displays, and allows you to reuses (it doesn't without outside help) those images. Over the years, there has been a host of solutions found via contributed modules but I've often found myself frustrated that support for these modules vary and often compatible versions are not made available until weeks or months after a new major version of Drupal has been released. The new core Media module wants to change this hurdle by providing an API for reusable media entities and references. It is based on the contributed Media Entity module which has become popular in recent years within Drupal's users.

Unfortunately, the core Media module still needs work and is currently marked hidden. In other words Media by default will not appear in Drupal 8.4's module administration page. The module will be displayed to site builders normally once once related user experience issues are resolved in a future release. Although, if you elect to use a contributed module under development that depends on the core Media module it will enable Media automatically for you. Similarly, the REST API and normalizations for Media are not final and support for decoupled applications will be improved in a future release. So while the Media API in available in this version of Drupal, most of us non-developers will need to wait for additional development to see the benefits of this module. 

Additional Information on Drupal 8.4

An overview of Drupal 8.4 can be found at Drupal.org but for a better list of the changes and fixes you'll want to check out the release notes. As always, links to the latest version of Drupal can be found on the project page. I've seen a few strange errors in the logs since updating my site from Drupal 8.3 to 8.4 but nothing significant for me to recommend waiting to install Drupal 8.4. For those that are more cautious, the next bugfix release (8.4.1) is scheduled for November 1, 2017.

Wordpress Expert - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Sat, 10/14/2017 - 20:34
1. I need to do a 301 redirect from old site to new site. I need to make sure all pages/links are redirected (not just home page).

2. I need to move all "posts" and "pages" content from old site to new site.

I want to move all the content first. As soon as that is done and I make sure all content is correct on new site, then do 301 redirect for all pages and make sure SEO juice transfers over.

Web based UI front end designer for a mobile app - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Sat, 10/14/2017 - 18:23
I'm looking for a front end designer for a mobile app targeting the elderly. There are 4 different screens in the app. You can use whatever framework you are comfortable with (bootstrap, react etc) but not a content management service (no Wordpress, Joomla etc) The app is very simple and simplicity for elderly use is the key. If you don't know coding but strong in design,  we can work something out.

Note that this is a one time project but it can turn to an ongoing engagement.

Thanks

mark.ie: Adding Tokens for Metatag Image Fields when using Drupal Media Entity

News from Planet Drupal - Sat, 10/14/2017 - 13:19
Adding Tokens for Metatag Image Fields when using Drupal Media Entity

Metatag cannot directly extract an image url from a media field referenced by another entity.

markconroy Sat, 10/14/2017 - 14:19

I upgraded my site from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 this week (yes, that's why it's running on Bartik - a PatternLab developed theme will be installed in time).

This morning I enabled the Metagtag module and set some defaults for page title, description, image, etc. The help notes on the image metatag field says "An image associated with this page, for use as a thumbnail in social networks and other services. This will be able to extract the URL from an image field." This is true, except in my case, all the image fields on the site use the Media Entity module, so they are entity reference fields rather than image fields.

When I put in a token of [node:field_main_image], the result in the outputted metatags was:

In that case, "Mark Conroy | DrupalCon Dublin 2017" is the name of the referenced media. I needed to output the image field of the referenced media.

After a little trial and error, I came up with this:

[node:field_main_image:entity:field_m_image_image]

which outputs:

In this case, "field_main_image" is the name of the image field on my content type, and "field_m_image_image" is the name of the image field on my image media bundle.

I hope that helps!
