How to Customizing Webform Preview option drupal 7.5

Tue, 07/24/2018 - 09:20

I'm a bit new to Drupal. I've been doing some contract work in Drupal for a client, but generally work in Rails/Ember.

I need to update the preview page for the webform in this Drupal 7 site and they want it to not only show the answers selected but all the options/answers in a question. I've dug through the webform settings and have been digging through the code, but haven't really found yet how to change this, if it's possible.

SiteGround Hosting missing Drush

Fri, 04/06/2018 - 15:14

Just a note to other Drupalers.  I have been looking for a new Drupal-centric host and have heard good things about SiteGround.  They advertise support for Drush, which would make critical core updates, like the one we had last week, much quicker and easier.

HOWEVER, please note that their latest version of Drush is 8.0 dev., which is horribly out of date and WILL NOT WORK with Drupal 8.4 and above.

I made this unfortunate discovery after setting up a new account there.  The staff could not give me an estimate of when they planned to update Drush, so I promptly cancelled.

Just wanted to pass this information on to anyone else considering a host that supports Drush.

PS: Can anyone here recommend a good Drupal-Centric host that supports Drush?  Thanks.

New module Search Index Options significantly reduces the dataset table size

Sat, 03/24/2018 - 22:51

Hello everyone!

I am not sure if this forum is the right place to make  an announcement about new module, but let me try, since I am already typing here ;)

There are number of modules which try to output search results restricting per content types, but they all deal with already generated search index, which sometimes can grow really large. 

Please find a light utility module Search Index Options that takes over the core search module's work at very early stage to index only those content types which is specifically chosen by Drupal site admin. 

Everybody might want to have Search Index module enabled regardless if they restrict or not any content from indexing, because unlike the core search module it also provides the detailed and useful search index statistics per content type as shown on the second screenshot on https://www.drupal.org/project/search_index.

Thanks for your attention!

Predictions for 2018

Sun, 02/11/2018 - 16:35

We have had a tradition since 2005. Every new year we have a posting on the predictions for the year ahead for our beloved open source CMS and community. Sometimes this posting went up in december, sometimes in January. But never in February.

Time to start a new tradition, predict the year ahead from February on :-)

Leave a comment if you do think that blogging will get hip again, RSS will gain new ground. What will the roll of the Drupal Association be in the new year? Where will the next DrupalCon be? Will the community grow and in what direction? API first, customer first, mobile first?

Polish your crystal ball and tell us what the future of Drupal wil be.

If you need some inspiration, take a look at 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015.2016 and 2017.

And yes, this posting was once month late. Apologies. Feel free to predict when the new prediction posting will go up on d.o :-)
