I recently downloaded the Drupal Security Kit module to implement a Content Security Policy on a site I’m working on. One of the drawbacks was the 128 character limit it has for the allowed source fields. That was a bit too restrictive for my needs due to the number of external scripts the site uses. The solution, create a patch for a Drupal module.
I recently came across a strange WordPress issue that was driving me up a wall. After completing a fresh install in a MAMP environment, I was having intermittent issues where it appeared the CSS and JS wasn’t getting loaded in the admin dashboard.
I was recently tasked with adding the ability for writers to enter simple shortcodes in Drupal’s WYSIWYG editor. My first thought was, no problem! It’ll only take me a few minutes. Like with everything Drupal, nothing is that simple. The ease at which WordPress makes it for developers to create and build blows Drupal out of the water. Simple tasks like creating these shortcodes —
filters in Drupal speak—is a cinch using WordPress’s Shortcode API. So, how do you add custom shortcodes in Drupal?
WordPress is one on the most popular CMS around and for good reason. The ease at which it allows anybody to build and maintain websites can’t compare to other systems like Drupal or Joomla. Sometimes though, you’ll need to transfer a WordPress site to another URL or clean up your database to boost server performance. This can sometimes be tricky if you attempt to handle everything through the admin panel. To make life a little bit easier, I’ve put together a list of the most useful WordPress SQL queries.
