Double Americano and Mobile First Drupal 8

As I sit in my rusty independent coffee shop looking for an angle for this topic, I can’t help but look around and size up the technology at work around me. Directly across from me is a young, college aged woman using an iPhone while reading an old growth book, she has a closed laptop before her. Seated next to her, another young woman sporting a “Be The Best Sorority” T bangs away on her Dell laptop, taking short text breaks here and there on a bedazzled iPhone. Across the cafe, near a window, sits a middle-aged Jimmy Buffet lookalike reading a laptop while listening to…best guess, “Margaritaville”. No phone at work there. Two other people in my immediate area are in the course of random tasks on their laptops with no other noticeable devices in use. It appears that recent mobile vs desktop statistics don’t hold up in my…

An Approach Complicated Entity Hierarchies and Relationships in Drupal

Client Abrams Learning Trends Challenge In moving their web presence to Drupal, Abrams wanted to redefine their product organization in such a way where product updates were streamlined, and product relationships were dynamically displayed within the site. Solution With hundreds of products sold both individually and in bundles, and related to one another through various, often hierarchical categorizations, making sense of the Abrams product catalog was a major piece of this project. Both the client and Pixeldust worked closely together to build a sustainable product structure that met both the client’s organizational and update wishes, and fit neatly into Drupal’s capabilities. We broke down our problem-solving approach into:  1) Organization, 2) Product Updates, and 3) Product Relationship Display. 1) Organization We pinpointed the product relationships that mattered to the client as: categorization through normal taxonomy tags. categorization through hierarchical taxonomy tags, where one item may belong to several tags within…
