Drupal Apps are crazy cool. They make Drupal site building fast and fun for everyone. That’s right, everyone and anyone. Even if you are new to Drupal. They are that simple.
Despite their coolness, apps are new to a lot of people. So we thought we would put together this quick Drupal Apps demo video.
After the demo, go ahead and take apps for a spin. A test drive is the best way to understand what apps can do for you. These instructions will get you started
Making Drupal more accessible is a never ending quest - but we just hit a big milestone. Just released: five new Drupal apps for Open Enterprise covering some of the most requested features from our clients. These new apps join the existing apps such as the blog to give site builders the essential recipes many sites need in a handy one click plug-n-play apps format. Enjoy!
There is no doubt that Drupal 7's admin is light years better from a usability perspective. Yet, even with all the enhancements, we find site admins still stumbling to manage their content. Over the last few months we have worked out a set of enhancements that have made our clients lives much easier. So we thought we would share.
The Social Media and Widgets modules have become pretty popular in the months since they launched. The feature request queues have been filling up. Mostly with requests to customize widgets or add new ones.
A modern day web presence is not just your website. To be successful you have to expand your digital footprint to include social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and YouTube. You need to enable your site visitors to Tweet, Like, +1 and share your content on the likes of StumbleUpon and Reddit.
To create a rich connected user experience, you need to do more than just link to social media. You need to integrate familiar social engagement directly into your website.
During 2011 the list of requests to port the Drupal SEO Tools suite had grown quite long. After a few months of brushing up on the new D7 changes, I finally got a chance to sit down and do some programming over the holidays. So for all of you who have been encouraging the D7 ports, I give you the Drupal 7 release of Content Analysis and Content Optimizer.
If you are not familiar with what these modules do, let's review.
Have you ever made a Drupal site where the design called for implementing one or more mega-menus? Have you spent countless hours downloading module after module and hacking your theme's template file to get the code to insert at just the right place?

After being introduced to the concept of responsive web theming, I took to it like a duck in water. I was pleased with the well documented contributed Drupal base theme, Omega based on the 960.gs grid.

I will not be covering any technical space-talk or how to configure Omega in this blog. If you would like to learn more about Omega, please visit the following site for more information: http://omega.developmentgeeks.com.
Why do you want a website? Because everyone else has one? That's a really terrible reason. Websites are really tools to accomplish a goal. Too many companies set out to build a website without fully thinking this through.
Let me give you an example.
Have you ever needed to put Service links or ShareThis into block? How about AddToAny in a node link? Want to have different share buttons per content type? Want a simple way to add the latest widgets from Twitter, Facebook or Google to your site. Want to enable admins to customize widgets without having to dig into the API docs? It's time to start wrangling in all those widgets.
