Site hosting is an often-underrated, but integral piece of every website. Hosting has a huge impact on site performance, and hosting can either cripple or empower developers in doing their job. Some development issues are at the level of your site code, but when they’re at the hosting level, a good Drupal developer toolset, and good support can save you time and money bug fixing.
There are plenty of hosts offering one-click Drupal installs and Drupal developer tools, but Pantheon’s Drupal Hosting is above-and-beyond the best Drupal solution we’ve used. Tailored to the specific needs of Drupal development, Pantheon provides an array of savvy features that’ll make your developers salivate.

The CIA highlighted 5 tips from their apparently timeless masterpiece on sabotage. Amazing how it’s essentially a model of how the corporate enterprise actually works. This PDF is astounding: Managers and Supervisors: To lower morale and production, be pleasant to inefficient workers; give them undeserved promotions. Discriminate against efficient workers; complain unjustly about their work. Employees: Work slowly. Think of ways to increase the number of movements needed to do your job: use a light hammer instead of a heavy one; try to make a small wrench do instead of a big one. Organizations and Conferences: When possible, refer all matters
I recently noticed in Drupal that although there are modules that let you display login messages such as “Log in successful for @username.” (LoginToboggan) or “Welcome back, @username.” (Persistent Login), there’s no easy way to display logout messages. So after doing some research, I found a patch for Drupal 7 that I just updated to work on the recently released Drupal 7.50. Let’s take a quick look at the simple code changes in the modules/user/user.pages.inc file (lines 194 – 214): 1) Before: /** * Menu callback; logs the current user out, and redirects to the home page. */ function user_logout()
Being pragmatic is engrained in me. I’m at my best being practical and boring.This has mostly been a good thing for me.I’m good at weighing options and making decisions. Strategic and tactical planning come very naturally to me.

I’m not great at conceptualizing ideas without a concrete goal in mind. I struggle to break from established conventions.In Steve Jobs’ words, I’m definitely not one of “The Crazy Ones”.Here’s the problem — experience has taught me

This doesn’t surprise me one single bit (via MIT): Your mental health is reflected in the images you choose to post on social media, say researchers who have trained a machine to spot depression on Instagram. And this shouldn’t either: The researchers found that depressed individuals tend to post images that are bluer, grayer, and darker, and receive fewer likes, than those posted by heathy individuals. So, what’s the point? I think the last sentence nails it: And that will provide hope that mental illness can be accurately detected earlier, allowing for more effective intervention. If we can all do

Inflexible, controlling, process-oriented. These are just a few of the stereotypes that project managers frequently face. Dealing with these stereotypes can make every project feel like an uphill battle but it doesn’t have to be that way. Every time you interact with a team member is an opportunity to prove the stereotypes wrong. Though there are many variables in a project that we can’t control, there are many that we can control! By focusing on building relationships, improving your communication skills, and creating a positive experience on projects, you can break down those stereotypes and improve your ability to work
Previously in our blog, we discussed the five basics of content marketing. The first of these five basics of content marketing is understanding your audience. You can create all of the killer content you can, but if you don’t know who your audience is, what problems your business can solve for them, and where and how they’re consuming your content, then you risk it missing the mark entirely and falling into the internet’s ether.

So What Is Content Marketing? Traditional marketing methods of the past have become outdated as audiences have lost interest and become more savvy in tuning them out. From browser-based ad blockers to streaming content online, ads have been relegated to the periphery at best, leading to low conversion rates, decreased traffic, and a lower return on investment.

Saying a modern nonprofit or business needs a website is like saying the tires on your car need air. Deny it and you’re going to have a bad time. Given the significant tasks required of your website, from fundraising and ecommerce to PR and campaigning, the tools you use to power it and the interface through which your team will interact with the site should be given important consideration.
