Anyone else having problems with pager of module pages in drupal 7?

Drupal - Open Source Content Platform - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 15:28

For a reason I do not understand my pager has stopped working. Any ideas why this might occure? I once enabled cache for views and pages but i changed it back and cleared all cache and still the pager does not work.

Hi Guys! I am new to this sub and have found a lot of information, but I have a question about some next steps.

Recently the PR firm I work for has decided to redo their whole website for the new year (note that it is now March). We put together an idea/thought page with inspirations from other sites we liked, stuff we saw online, and things from our old site to give to a company we asked to build our site for us. This company has done sites for many of our clients, and we have loved them all. We started a contract with them in January and were hoping to be well into the process now, but they seem to be missing the mark in the layout and feel of our site and what it says about us.

So today at a lunch meeting with my boss he tells me to email the company and essentially end the contract. Say thanks and just eat the 5k we have already given them. He says this because they have failed and are basically dancing monkeys if we aren't happy about something if we suggest a change they make the change verbatim and add no design or original context to it. He also did this because I thought since they could not understand us I would create a sort of "mock site" (not sure if that's the right word), just a layout on Wix & square space to kind of give them the feel & layout we wanted from the start. My boss ends up loving this one page I did and wants me to build a site! (What the hell have I gotten myself into?!) I have no experience in this, and he says to just go with it and research as I go, and use the graphic designer that works for us independently.

SO the big TLDR question is: Is wix/square space okay? Or is it going to mess us up in the end somehow? What is the best thing to do regarding web development for a very small (7 person firm) that really just has a site for info but wants it to be badass and represent us?

and yes my boss knows I have no experience in this, he is nuts.

How is your development workflow (from first code to production deployment)? Easy? Tough? Fragile? Looking for advanced workflows that work well with multiple developers, source control, building JS/CSS, deployment, etc

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 14:53

Hey devs,

My company is going to be hiring some additional developers soon and we'll also be outsourcing other developers. Currently there are three devs (including me), one of whom is new to the company and getting used to the potholes in the shitty roads myself and the other dev have built for ourselves.

Our typical site setup involves your typical LAMP stack, no NodeJS on the server, using SASS, some jQuery, and a random mish-mash of jQ plugins we use as needed. There's no JS compiling/transpiling/minification going on. Us devs use PhpStorm primarily for development and its source control integration.

We need ways to be able to plan feature requests that are slated further out. I don't wanna compromise the testing server if I wanna test a new way of organizing and structuring our sales site's front page to get it to load 200ms faster. And, if that drastic change DOES come out just fine, be able to integrate that smoothly and confidently.

So I'm taking it upon myself to research this issue of how best to approach new development workflow, starting from coding & coding style guides and linting to compiling, minification, managing source control (we're currently using SVN but I'm happy to push for Git), figuring out build and deployment and the like.

As one example, we compile the SASS using a compass tool (powered by Ruby) on OS X and then manually push the resultant CSS file via SFTP to the server.

It just feels like we're behind in our workflow for more than 2 developers and it's antiquated and fragile and I gotta get on top of this and provide a presentation covering every aspect of a new workflow for everyone involved.

Any advice or links or personal stories you have about your own web development workflow would be of really great help.

Thank you!

Has anyone here ever worked with AspDotNetStoreFront?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 14:39

I'm a relatively inexperienced developer (really more of a designer) and this is my first "real" project. I'm solid with CSS precompilers, but trying to do something simple like add or remove HTML elements has me stumped, which I'm assuming has to do with my fundamental lack of understanding of .NET.

They gave up a skinned store what I'm altering to match the brand style guide, but there are HTML elements I need to remove as well as add to make this whole thing work.

Anyone have any experience implementing a design with this type of thing?

Chrome constantly complaining about certificate when developing locally

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 13:53

I'm developing sites on my local LAMP stack. The sites will be HTTPS when the go onto the live server so that's how I'm developing them.

I generated a self-signed cert and have use the same one on all my vhosts.

The problem is that chrome complains "Your connection is not private" every time I change pages on my dev sites.

Is there a way of suppressing this in development? Is the problem that I'm sharing a key between all my hosts?

Responding to “Why can’t I just use wix?”

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 13:37

Hey all, hope this is the right place to post this.

We’ve all heard it before from someone, but I think the response of a dev (or designer) takes some finesse.

What’s the most effective response you have to these types of statements to clients?

Microsoft Edge Variable Fonts Demo

CSS-Tricks - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 13:23

The Edge team put together a thorough demo of variable fonts, showcasing them in all of their shape-shifting and adaptive glory. Equally interesting as the demo itself is a history of web typography and where variable fonts fit in the grand scheme of things.

This demo pairs well with v-fonts.com, which is an interactive collection of variable fonts that allows you to play around with the variable features each font provides.

A simple resource for finding and trying variable fonts

CSS-Tricks - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 13:23

This is a website designed to showcase fonts that support OpenType Variations and let you drag a whole bunch of sliders around to manipulate a typeface’s width, height, and any other settings that the type designer might’ve added to the design.

I think the striking thing about this project is that I had no idea just how many variable fonts were out there in the wild until now.

I bought a web site from site ground and now I keep getting phone calls and emails.

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 13:22

I don't know much about web sites but was trying to build one for the first time. Do they sell my information to people? Why are random Indians calling my number like crazy and spamming now? Why do I have to pay an extra charge for those calls to stop I don't have enough money for all this. Help

Question about SEO

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 13:13

Hi guys,

So I'm making a website, and a lot of my pages are pretty repetitive; they're project documentation pages - all have the same layout and the only difference is the content on the page (which is parsed from Markdown in JS) and the navigation menu (which I can easily create from JS)

It would be really easy to just have one page (www.mysite.com/projects) with the template, and then url queries (www.mysite.com/projects?sample1) to tell the page which project to load in JS. This would make my life wayy easier and make updating the layout much easier.

My only problem is: can a search engine tell the difference between "mysite.com/projects?sample1" and "mysite.com/projects?sample2"? Will this method stop my different pages from appearing in search results? If so, how can I combine the two methods to create something efficient which is also searchable?

[Dumb question] Where to start to make a website like glassdoor/tripadvisor/ratemyprofessors?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 13:01

Title. Assumed I know basic HTML PHP CSS MySQL Java. What resources do I need (A VPS/Cloud VPS or dedicated server or just shared hosting?), what type of programming language can maximize efficiency to build this kind of rating/review website? How long should I expect to finish its base/general code/overall idea with no actual data?

WiFi Gateway?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Fri, 03/16/2018 - 12:50

Hey everyone, I have a client who has requested a WiFi Gateway be made to allow customers access to his locations wifi.

Similar to when you visit a McDonalds, Starbucks or an Airport, you have go to login to the wifi -> it directs you to a domain -> you fill out some user info and are then are granted access (preferably auto connected).

It could also just be a domain that the customers are given that they go to, that then grants them access to the wifi

Just curious if any of you have dealt with putting something like this together, or if anyone has any recommendations on how to approach this.


Edit: Sorry guys, forgot to mention that use of Facebook WiFI is not an option as client would like to capture other customer data rather than have them 'check-in'
