rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.

Farewell Megan, but not goodbye

As you might have read on the Drupal Association blog, Megan Sanicki, the Executive Director of the Drupal Association, has decided to move on. Megan has been part of the Drupal Association for almost 8 years. She began as our very first employee responsible for DrupalCon Chicago sponsorship sales in 2011, and progressed to be our Executive Director, in charge of the Drupal Association. It’s easy to forget how far we’ve come in those years. When Megan started, the Drupal Association had little to no funding. During her tenure, the Drupal Association grew from one full-time employee to the 17 full-time employees, and from $1.8 million in annual revenues to $4 million today. We have matured into a nonprofit that can support and promote the mission of the Drupal project. Megan led the way. She helped grow, mature and professionalize every aspect of the Drupal Association. The last two years…

JAMstack_conf

I love a good conference that exists because there is a rising tide in technology. JAMstack_conf: Static site generators, serverless architectures, and powerful APIs are giving front-end teams fullstack capabilities — without the pain of owning infrastructure. It’s a new approach called the JAMstack. I’ll be speaking at it! I’ve been pretty interested in all this and trying to learn and document as much as I can.

CSS Shape Editors

Firefox 62 is shipping out of beta on September 5th. The big notable thing for CSS developers is that it will now support the shape-outside property with polygon(), circle(), and ellipse(), joining Chrome and Safari. What will be nice about the Firefox release (well, it’s kinda already nice if you use something like Firefox Developer Edition which is already on 62), is that it has a shape editor built right into DevTools. Chrome supports shape-outside as well, but there is no native DevTools helper for working with them. Thankfully, Razvan Caliman has a Chrome Plugin that does a great job. (Razvan contributed to the Firefox version as well, I hear.) I enjoy using shape-outside as it can add real visual interest to a page that isn’t nearly overdone or trendy just yet. Plus, in a lot of cases, it doesn’t matter whether it’s supported because the float behaves as a…

How to Highlight the Menu Item of the Current Page in Drupal

One of our customers asked how to highlight an active menu item in Drupal and how to keep it highlighted once it has been clicked. In this tutorial, you will learn how to achieve this goal using the “Menu Trial by Path” and “Pathauto” contrib modules. In this example, we’re going to use a site that has a main menu with different regions e.g. Alaska, California, Pacific. There is also a secondary menu, customized for each geographical region. So we have the following URL structure: example.com/regions/alaska (Main Navigation) example.com/regions/alaska/al-link-1 (Secondary Navigation) Source: https://www.ostraining.com/
