Web Wash: How to Use Display Suite Field Templates in Drupal 7

Posted on Wednesday, January 28th, 2015 by drupalroot

Display Suite is one of the essential modules which I use on every project. It allows you to change the look and feel of entity bundles, i.e., content types, vocabularies, users and much more. Building custom layouts and adding fields is a breeze, but there's another feature you may not be aware of and that's custom field templates. Display Suite allows you to change the markup which is used to render individual fields.

The functionality to change field templates is off by default. To turn it on, you'll need to enable the "Display Suite Extras" sub-module and check the "Field Templates" on the Extras page.

In this tutorial, you'll learn how to enable "Field Templates" and how to use them.

Phase2: Finding (and Retaining) the Best of the Best

Posted on Wednesday, January 28th, 2015 by drupalroot

Yesterday, Phase2’s own Chris Bloom was featured on the Drupal Association’s podcast on how to hire great Drupal talent. It’s a pertinent conversation to have at the moment, when 92% of hiring managers surveyed by the Drupal Association reported that there is insufficient Drupal talent in the market to meet their needs.

Over the course of an hour, Chris, Randi King, and Mike Lamb shared many insights on not only attracting talent, but keeping it around. I highly recommend giving the podcast a listen once the recording is available on the Association’s website. In the meantime, as Phase2’s Talent Manager, I wanted to elaborate on some of our company’s methods for finding, hiring, and retaining the best of the best in Drupal and beyond.

Posted on Wednesday, January 28th, 2015 by drupalroot

Stéphane Corlosquet, Sachni Herath, Kevin Oleary, and Kay VanValkenberg join Mike, Ted, and Ryan for a look into Drupal 8's impressive integration with Schema.org. The RDF UI module is really the star of the show, it promises to provide a super-easy way to create a content type based on an existing schema. We also talk about Dries' 2014 Drupal retrospective, Twig syntax vs. tokens, and Mike's bad internet connection causes hijinx. Picks of the week include a font for demos, a lightweight alternative to a popular Drupal module, and Views changes in D8.
