Out of the box layout

what I’m hoping to get out of this: gotchas I may not have considered in building the theme, things I might want to share with Justin & Naomi. [full disclosure: not 100% listening, because I’m trying to get my screenshots together.] Fieldgroup is in fact the bomb. (he’s using “div” in order to have something […]

CRM integration

what I’m hoping to get out of this: what are some possibilities for integrating? What should I be looking for? make it easy for editors to build pages/forms and connect them to the campaigns in the CRM avoiding tightly coupled systems at the one end, just link to the forms built in the CRM, and […]

How to audit Drupal sites

what I’m hoping to get out of this: what are some cool tools for making sure I’m not messing it up? “views cache bully”? site audit – drush. can produce html reports. doesn’t check usability & UX (obvs!) or design (including accessibility) or the actual content. the HTML output is pretty sweet, TBH…but it does […]

Foundation – a frame work […]

Drupal in higher ed, a modular approach

I have plots & daydreams…. This room is about packed. Huh. Sort of a vendor presentation from ImageX Media, their major emphasis is higher ed. OpenEDU – not a ready-to-go product. (OpenScholar? OpenAcademy?) its features can be added on to other distributions, or can be used as a framework. (Portland State is their flagship client, […]

Responsive Web Design

Yep, back to this again. Conference blogging! Pacific Northwest Drupal Summit, this time, which long-time readers will know that I have been to this event several times…technically every time. It’s back in Seattle again, which is nice because it’s technically commute-able from my house, although a loooong commute. Last night I actually came up early […]
