Last month was an interesting one for the Ashday office, when for one week we packed up our computers and made the journey to New Orleans for DrupalCon 2016. This was only my second DrupalCon - having also gone to Los Angeles in 2015 - and it far exceeded my already-high expectations set by last year's.

Drupal 8: Have you (con)figured it out?

Fri, 12/11/2015 - 22:24 -- Clint Randall

Ah, Drupal 8. It was the best of times, it was the blurst of times.

So if you've taken the dive into Drupal 8 and you aren't a person who helped build it, a person who helped test it, or the guy who invented it, then you know that it's a pretty considerable change from Drupal 7 and how to do things isn't immediately clear. Just try Googling for some kind of Drupal 8 tutorial and you'll find 5 outdated or flat wrong ways to do something for every one way that's right (for now). One of the areas we at Ashday were excited to jump into was Drupal 8's new configuration management system.

Specialized Administration Pages in Drupal

Even the most simple websites will often consist of multiple pages or multiple different types of content. For example, a site for a small business may contain a homepage, a "Contact Us" page so that potential customers can contact the business, a few additional simple pages such as "About the Business" and "Our Products", and a News page, which shows all of the business's announcements, but can also be searched by a visitor looking for a particular thing.

What the heck is that permission called??!!!

Fri, 04/11/2014 - 16:54 -- Clint Randall

Ok, so this is a very focused blog post, especially for my first return to the blog-o-sphere in a while, but I've gotten so much benefit from very focused blog posts that I had to throw this out there. From time to time, I find myself needing to specific a very particular Drupal permission in my access arguments for hook_menu. Well, if you didn't know - you can see the whole list by simply accessing your MySQL database and viewing the contents of the role_permission table.
