I’m a little disappointed with aspects of drupal.org at the moment.
After the relaunch under the “new" D7 architecture, project pages show download and install counts frozen on their values of 20 October 2013, while projects released since then have no counts or graphs at all.
When the question When is D8 ready? was asked during a leadership Q&A session at DrupalCon Prague, the responses were testament to an orchestration of unity. None of the house-trained members of the panel dared to go beyond the “it’s ready when it’s ready” response.
At flink we're not afraid of speaking out for the sake of some great debate.
So here are some thoughts we have. Caution: may provoke. The comment box is open!
Seven tips and traps that make D7 developers go :-) and @#$&*!
When a steam train like D8 rolls your way, resistance is futile. You either jump aside --and some "big" names have done so-- or you jump aboard.
For D7 developers wanting to join the D8 ride, this article critiques some common D8 misconceptions, hopefully making onboarding less precarious.
Drupal has its quirks. And the odd niggly bit. Most of the time the operational foible simply becomes second nature as we and our clients accept it as the way such and such part of Drupal works.
Sometimes, however, users are not so forgiving and that annoying little discomfort becomes a nag of a feature request. This is how Views Filter Harmonizer was born.
This is about Views Contextual Filters.
No don't run away yet…. give me a sec… please.
I am well aware that even seasoned site builders fear to tread into that hidden-by-default upper right-hand corner of the Views UI configuration page labelled "Advanced". Most of us have opened it once, seen the heading "Contextual Filters" and gone "Mwaaah… what's that cr@p and what good is it to me?"
Well quite a lot of good, actually. If you can just hang in there, I'll get straight to the point.
