Metal Toad: Drupal Solr Search with Domain Access filtering

Planet Drupal - Wed, 2014/07/23 - 11:34pm

Metal Toad has had the privilege to work over the past two years with DC Comics. What makes this partnership even more exciting, is that the main dccomics.com site also includes sites for Vertigo Comics and Mad Magazine. Most recently Metal Toad was given the task of building the new search feature for all three sites. However, while its an awesome privilege to work with such a well known brand as DC, this does not come without a complex set of issues for the three sites when working with Apache Solr search and Drupal.

Gizra.com: Headless Drupal - Form API, Drupal 9

Planet Drupal - Wed, 2014/07/23 - 11:00pm
Defining moment

A few months ago my DrupalCon Austin session was rejected. I was a bit upset, since presenting plays a big part in my trip to the states, and also surprised, as I mistakenly assumed my presentation repertoire would almost guarantee my session would be accepted. But the committee decided differently.

This has been an important moment for me. Two days later I told myself I don't care. I mean, I cared about the presentation, I just stopped caring that it was not selected, since I decided I was going to do it anyway. As an "unplugged" BoF.

The Gizra Way. I think this is probably the best presentation I've given so far, and quite ironically my rejected session is second only to Dries's keynote in YouTube.

You see - I had a "there is no spoon" moment. The second I realized it can be done differently, I was on my own track, perhaps even setting the path for others.

Form API, Drupal 9

I use Drupal because Form API is so great No one, ever

Acquia: Migration Tips and Tricks

Planet Drupal - Wed, 2014/07/23 - 3:18pm

Cross-posted with permission from nerdstein

The Migrate module is, hands down, the defacto way to migrate content in Drupal. The only knock against it, is the learning curve. All good things come to those who take the time and learn it.

This is not a performance killer per se ... it's much quicker then the parser oop2json.
