Blog /Drupal

Drupal is a great ecosystem. By choosing it, you get access to a number of additional opportunities that coexist with it.

On the blog, we describe specific solutions that can be implemented as part of Drupal, give examples of Drupal websites as inspiration. You will read about the benefits of open source and the resources of a huge community. You will also learn why Drupal is characterized by high security standards.

Did you know that every twentieth website built on the CMS system on the Internet is built on Drupal?

The Drupal system can be classified as one of the safest CMSs on the market. It has a refined structure and a wide range of functions. In this text, we'll take a look at Drupal 8 first. We'll remind you when it was released and what changes it brought when compared to the previous versions. Next, we'll take a closer look at Drupal 9 and then compare both versions.

In the previous parts, we focused on Drupal configuration and the overview of modules and libraries. In the third part of the series on conducting a security audit, we'll focus on the overview of custom modules and themes. We'll perform an audit of the project repository, identify and analyze the elements worth paying attention to during the auditing process.

The world of technology is constantly evolving and strives to create new solutions, as well as to improve the old ones. Consequently, the life cycle of every software sooner or later reaches its inevitable end. Such a fate awaits the distinguished and still popular Drupal 7 with the end of its official support by the developers. This is a great moment to recall the novelties it brought in relation to the previous versions and to shed some light on what's next.

Commercial CMS platforms are convenient because you get them with the set of already configured functionalities and their developers regularly add the new ones. However, if there are still some features missing in this type of solution, they don’t meet your individual needs, or some other matters don’t suit you, consider switching to an open source system. In this article, you’ll find the benefits this change can bring you.

In the first part of the series on Drupal security audits, we described how to review modules and libraries. However, modules and dependencies will be useless if any user will be able to see our custom routing where we display all the client information. Therefore, in this article we'll look at the configuration of our website. Correct configuration is one of the key elements affecting security.

Interactive websites engage the users more. Watching videos, viewing compelling infographics, or completing the quizzes make them spend more time on your page. It increases the chances of remembering your company and contacting you. In our article, we’ll show you the elements of an interactive website and tell you what to use to create one in Drupal.

It isn’t enough for the architecture of our web page to be well-designed – the appearance is also important! Drupal comes to our aid when it comes to building websites quickly. Can we count on similar help when creating a modern look? We'll tell you a bit about the extensive library called Bootstrap, which offers a wide range of ready-made components.

A security audit is the process of identifying security threats that can lead to unauthorised access to content, data leaks, bypassing the security, and other dangers. In the first part of the series on conducting a security audit, we'll focus on the overview of the Drupal module versions that we use at Droptica for this purpose, as well as on PHP and JavaScript libraries.

Many people probably wonder why system creators recommend regular updating to the latest version and why we are informed at every step by pop-ups that the latest patch or other fix has been released, sometimes changing only a few lines of code in the software. Using Drupal as an example, I'll try to explain why it's so crucial. Although the system works properly, it can contain many errors and surprise you with unstable work.
