Colorfield: CKEditor Media Embed wrapper for Drupal 7

News from Planet Drupal - Thu, 06/29/2017 - 06:47
CKEditor Media Embed wrapper for Drupal 7 christophe Thu, 29/06/2017 - 08:47 Looks like most of my Drupal 7 clients are sharing the enthusiasm for CKEditor Media Embed and didn't want to wait for a Drupal 8 upgrade of their site, so here is a wrapper module for that. There are probably way better implementations, like the one that was done for Drupal 8, but I wanted to have something quickly ready with close to zero maintenance. Also, it had to rely on the Wysiwyg module and not the CKEditor standalone module.

Need Wordpress Developer to Build Out Small Website - PSD to Wordpress - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Thu, 06/29/2017 - 01:36
I am looking to immediately hire a quality developer (familiar with Bootstrap) to take my PSD designs and build them out into PIXEL PERFECT pages in Wordpress. Bear in mind, I am a front-end developer myself, so when I say PIXEL PERFECT, I mean PIXEL PERFECT.

The core of the website is already built out, however I have additional pages/templates I want done. Here are some notes on what needs to be done for each template to give you a better idea of the task at hand:

- Main Blog Page Template
1. I need a category dropdown that will take the user to the specific category chosen.
2. Need right sidebar with dynamic sections (ad banner, newsletter button sign up, top 5 posts, top 5 programs)
3. 12 blog posts per page (most recent blog post is double the size)
4. Pagination at bottom

- Single Blog Single Template
1. Featured post image
2. Blog post meta data, title, content (with styled blockquote)
3. Share This social button at bottom of post
4. Facebook comments integration (will have plugin already purchased)
5. Utilize same dynamic right sidebar as on main blog page

- Browse Programs Template (Custom Post Type: Programs)
1. Page will need to list out all 'Programs'
2. Each program box will include program profile image, program highlight tags, program title, program description (25 word limit) and button link to program page
3. Need a program category navigation included (this is a visual subnavigation with an icon and category title). The program list needs to update and reflect the selected category for the program post type.

- Program Overview Single Template (Custom Post Type: Programs)
1. Include program profile featured image
2. Include program featured image
3. Include title and content (with styled blockquote)
4. Share this social button at bottom of post
5. Right sidebar will have program specific information section, star rating, recommendation blurb and join program button (customizable button link)

Standard functionality for the most part, nothing too complex. The back-end in terms of updating content/sections needs to be user-friendly and sensible.

I will provide .PNG samples to my shortlist and the .PSDs to the awarded developer.

I'd like to get someone hired and get this project done relatively quick. Please provide hours quote and how long it will take you to completed this in terms of days. I am looking for someone who can dedicate themselves fully to this project. Upon completion, I will create another milestone for a tablet and mobile-friendly version.

I look forward to working with one of you soon.

Thank you.

Jacob Rockowitz: Webform 8.x-5.x-beta14: Ajaxifying Webforms and Improving User Submission Management

News from Planet Drupal - Thu, 06/29/2017 - 01:17

Webform 8.x-5.x-beta14 has become a significant release because it addresses several important features and milestones listed on the Webform roadmap, including support for multiple drafts, Ajax-enhancing submission forms and the administrative UI.

Before I start to "show-n-telling" you about these cool new features, wanted to announce that I am targeting monthly releases and explain my goals for each release of the Webform module.

Monthly Releases

Initially,I was reluctant to publically commit to regular releases for software that I am maintaining for free. Turns out my public commitment is a good thing. Targeting regular releases motivates me to organize the Webform's roadmap and issue queue while iteratively working on fixing bugs and adding new features. I’m trying to take an agile approach with maintaining the Webform module that seeks to iteratively implement working features knowing that features and functionality can and should evolve over time.

The Webform for Drupal 8 (formerly known as YAML Form module) is a completely new codebase striving to reach reasonable feature parity with the Webform 7.x-4.x module, which is used by a half million Drupal 7 websites. I've also looked at the Webform ecosystem for Drupal 7 - gradually I’m integrating key Webform add-on modules into the core Webform module for Drupal 8.

Ajaxifying Webform Forms and User Interface

The Webform Ajax module is a perfect example of a contrib module for Drupal 7 that I wanted to add to the core Webform module. Personally,...Read More

myDropWizard.com: Drupal Sucks at Non-Profits

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 06/28/2017 - 21:47

If you're a non-profit volunteer, board member, director, or staff, should you be afraid of using Drupal for your website needs?

There's been a lot of doom and gloom in the Drupal Community with Drupal 8 being more complex than ever! Other "content management systems" (a.k.a. CMS's) have long claimed that "Drupal is hard", "Drupal is expensive".

Is Drupal hard? Is Drupal 8 even "harder"? Is it "too expensive" for your non-profit?

Does Drupal suck at non-profits?

In this article, I take a deep dive, looking at what non-profits need from a website and how well Drupal can provide for those needs.

Read on to see what I think, and PLEASE, share your thoughts in the comments below!

myDropWizard.com: Drupal 6 security update for SMTP

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 06/28/2017 - 18:36

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 SMTP module to fix an Information Disclosure vulnerability.

This SMTP module enables you to send mail using a third party (non-system) mail service instead of the local system mailer included with Drupal.

When this module is in debugging mode, it would log privileged information.

With the help of the D6LTS vendors, a new version was released.

If you have a Drupal 6 site using the SMTP 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).

[REQUEST] A plugin that permits membership and single user personal files area.

Talk about plugins - Wed, 06/28/2017 - 17:02

Hello everyone! I would need a plugin to allow in a site to have membership; In addition, every single user must have access to a personal download/upload area. There should be admin users who upload for each normal user their personal files and have access to all uploaded files by users. In addition, in the personal area of the user there should be the possibility to send category-specific requests to the admins. What plugins do i need? Even paid ones, it's not a problem :) Thanks!

Drupal blog: Community Discussions Findings and Webinar

News from Planet Drupal - Wed, 06/28/2017 - 15:46

Over the last few years, many of us have seen the need to evolve community governance. Up until now, we had to focus on other priorities, but now is the time to address our needs for community governance especially in light of recent community events.

Our project has matured greatly and participation has expanded from developers and site builders to also include more content editors, designers, and marketing managers who work not only as freelancers or at Drupal shops, but also for large digital agencies or system integrators. We want all community members to be included in these community discussions so the redefined community governance serves everyone. This is an exciting time to create an even healthier future for our ever-growing community.

The Drupal Association is committed to staying in a support role as the community determines how to best evolve community governance to support everyone’s needs. We started helping by hosting Community Discussions that were mediated by Whitney Hess. There were 7 sessions at DrupalCon Baltimore and 7 virtual sessions between April and May. You can find the meeting minutes here.

The Community Discussions surfaced several common needs and identified several strategies for addressing those needs.

The most commonly shared needs of the community are (in order of frequency):

  • Awareness

  • Participation

  • Transparency

  • Clarity

  • Contribution

  • Healing

  • Trust

  • Understanding

  • Communication

  • Connection

  • Empowerment

  • Process

  • Progress

Strategies to address those needs ranged from clarifying the responsibilities and boundaries of the leadership roles throughout the Drupal project, determining how and where to communicate community decisions, improving processes for community management, and providing easier access to documentation about leadership roles and clearly communicating what is expected of Drupal community members.

In terms of next steps, the participants were in agreement that we need to come together in a Governance Summit to start architecting improvements to today’s governance structure. However, the community did not define the best way to hold this meeting. It is still unclear when and where it should be, and who should participate and facilitate. We will send out a community survey next to get input from you to answer these questions.

Attend The Webinar

We invite to you attend a webinar on July 6 at 11 am ET / 1600 BST / 8:30 pm IST hosted by Whitney Hess. Whitney will review the findings from our Community Discussions in more detail. We will record the video and share it with you afterwards, along with a written transcript.

Dial in details are below:

wordpress SEO content generator - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Wed, 06/28/2017 - 08:12
It is necessary to implement inside WordPress

For example, I have word X plus I have several related words  y1,y2,y3
I need to get content with fixed URLs (urlrewrite) x-y1,x-y2,x-y3 и т.д.

1) for each Y1-10 will be custom text template where will be inputted in right place {​X}​ & {​Y1}​
2) will be nice if it will be done via POST type (not sure that it is possible)
3) will be more than 100 X & 10 Y words.  I could manage it via PHP code.
4) if page with URL x-y1 exists (via standart WP) we have to skip such logic and do not use our template from this task
5) I have to have access to templates, because if in the future  I would like to change text in it I have to do it in one place for all our 100x10= 1000 posts.

I want to talk with you via S.kype in a voice, so leave your s.kypeID, please.

suggest your method how are you going to solve this task.
