As some of you might know, my background is actually in urban geography. Working at Affinity Bridge is a bit of a dream job for me, as someone with a passion for sustainability and positive change, because our clients are doing such amazing work to make our local and global communities a better place. It makes me feel like I'm helping contribute in a greater sense, and that I have a way to be involved in many vital projects. I sometimes think of the process of planning, developing, and launching websites as very much like urban planning projects. There is this somewhat vague online space that...
Behold, the first generation of MailChimp Import. This module does no more, and no less, than import your MailChimp campaigns as nodes.
As a follow up to the previous post talking about our (re)branding process, we wanted to share with you some of the details of the new theme for our site, as well as a few configuration changes, and what we learned.
Earlier this week, with much anticipation, we launched our website redesign, which has been in the works for several months. It began as a rebranding of the company logo, then new business cards, and finally the website.
Unless you're able to travel to the US, it's not often that we Vancouverites get the chance to go to a theming workshop put on by the author of one of the most well loved, and well used Drupal theming books to date.
This post is part of our Abridged series, which aims to explain the basics of some of the more ominous yet awesome Drupal projects in simple and practical terms. We hope these posts will help demystify some of these projects for people who have been hesitant to try them out!
This post was originally posted on my personal blog, but we thought it was worth sharing here. This one’s all Drupal folks, cause that’s pretty much all I’ve done for the last two and a half weeks. This is what happened when I asked the question, “Is there some reason we don’t just fix it all?” I did not know then what I was getting myself into…
A CSS framework cannot be expected to be the final solution to all your problems, but it can be a useful tool for structuring and theming your site more efficiently.
A bunch of the Affinity Bridge crew went down to Seattle the weekend before last for the much anticipated Pacific North West Drupal Summit - Mack, Robin, Shiraz, Shawn, and myself (Ariane) made it down (Zoe was meant to come but picked up a cold in Italy and didn't want to contagious it to everyone), and Dave Tarc and Scott Nelson who have been collaborating on a couple projects rounded out the posse. It's always great catching up with the rest of the PNW Drupallers, it really is a hotbed of Drupal activity, and we were lucky enough to be joined by many of our Drupal friends and colleagues who...
This past weekend was the Drupal7 Contrib Module Upgrade Sprint that Károly Négyesi (aka chx) organized at the NowPublic offices in Vancouver. I spent a good part of Saturday there, helped out with coaching the one brave beginner who turned up to learn some of the tools for helping out in the community. Otherwise, after a bit of a rough start, the devs all hunkered down and made some Drupal magic, upgrading super important things like Views, Panels, database stuff, and various other bits and pieces of modules and themes. A good number of people came in from out of town and all worked their...
