Drupal blog: Drupal helps rescue ultra marathon runner

News from Planet Drupal - Thu, 02/07/2019 - 18:12

This blog has been re-posted and edited with permission from Dries Buytaert's blog.

I'm frequently sent examples of how Drupal has changed the lives of developers, business owners and end users. Recently, I received a very different story of how Drupal had helped in a rescue operation that saved a man's life.

The Snowdonia Ultra Marathon website

In early 2018, Race Director Mike Jones was looking to build a new website for the Ultra-Trail Snowdonia ultra marathon. He reached out to a good friend and developer, Rob Edwards, to lead the development of the website.

Rob chose Drupal for its flexibility and extensibility. As an organization supported heavily by volunteers, open source also fit the Snowdonia team's belief in community.

The resulting website, https://apexrunning.co/, included a custom-built timing module. This module allowed volunteers to register each runner and their time at every aid stop.

A runner goes missing

Rob attended the first day of Ultra-Trail Snowdonia to ensure the website ran smoothly. He also monitored the runners at the end of the race to certify they were all accounted for.

Monitoring the system into the early hours of the morning, Rob noticed one runner, after successfully completing checkpoints one and two, hadn't passed through the third checkpoint.

Each runner carried a mobile phone with them for emergencies. Mike attempted to make contact with the runner via phone to ensure he was safe. However, this specific area was known for its poor signal and the connection was too weak to get through.

After some more time eagerly watching the live updates, it was clear the runner hadn't reached checkpoint four and more likely hadn't ever made it past checkpoint three. The Ogwen Mountain Rescue were called to action.

Due to the terrain and temperature, searching for the lost runner on foot would be too slow. Instead, the mountain rescue volunteers used a helicopter to scan the area and locate the runner.

How Drupal came to the rescue

The area covered by runners in an ultra marathon like this one is vast. The custom-built timing module helped rescuers narrow down the search area; they knew the runner passed the second checkpoint but never made it to the third.

After following the fluorescent orange markers in the area pinpointed by the Drupal website, the team quickly found the individual. He had fallen and become too injured to carry on. A mild case of hypothermia had set in. The runner was airlifted to the hospital for appropriate care. The good news: the runner survived.

Without Drupal, it might have taken much longer to notify anyone that a runner had gone missing, and there would have been no way to tell when he had dropped off.

NFC and GPS devices are now being explored for these ultra marathon runners to carry with them to provide location data as an extra safety precaution. The Drupal system will be used alongside these devices for more accurate time readings, and Rob is looking into an API to pull this additional data into the Drupal website.

Stories about Drupal having an impact on organizations and individuals, or even helping out in emergencies, drive my sense of purpose. Feel free to keep sending them my way!

[request] plug in to display part of a graph only

Talk about plugins - Thu, 02/07/2019 - 13:58

I've got a spreadsheet of stats for various members and I'd like to display a certain stat on each of their own profile pages without displaying the same stat for all other members. The members are actually a post category in a staff category rather than wp admin users. The spreadsheet is on Google sheets but easily exported to csv etc.

- No need for hosting configuration, only frontend WP development.
- We are aiming to rank well with SEO, so you should also have some idea of how to make site SEO friendly.
- Also looking for recommendations for best WP plugins and settings for our commercial goals.

[help] Is it enough to disable a plugin to block attackers to search for any exploits in it?

Talk about plugins - Thu, 02/07/2019 - 09:01

Hello,

I pretty much said it all in the title. I'm curios to find out if a disabled plugin can still be used by a potential attacker, or I would need to delete it altogether to prevent this.

Thank you,

Require CSS/design expert to tweak and improve some minor site theme issues - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Wed, 02/06/2019 - 20:11
We have a custom Bootstrap Wordpress theme that has a few minor CSS issues we'd like cleaned up and improved.

Issues are primarily related to making sure the site displays correctly at all responsive breakpoints.

The overall design is finished so we're not looking for a new design. Just CSS tweaks to improve display and check for any errors.

Also ensure that all elements display correctly on all browser/OS types.

IMPORTANT: We want a CSS expert who also understands quality design/UI. Ideally someone who can make suggestions to improve what we already have.

Note: No access to Wordpress dashboard or server is necessary.

Deliverable: a "fixes.css" file with any and all tweaks included and clearly commented. We all add this content ourselves to our stylesheet.

Apply for more details.
