Like Views or Rules modules, flag module is one of my favorite, general purpose Drupal modules. Flag module let’s you create a customizable system of “flags” for things like bookmarks, important content, friends, flag as offensive or whatever. With great Views and Rules integration, it’s a powerful combination for site builders.

On Saturday, March 9, 2013, we opened up online registration. In the lead-up to the event, there was a lot of online excitement and build up leading up to registration. The past events (in 2011 and 2012) had all gone extremely well but there been some difficulties with the online registration process.
Pardon the naming confusion! ComingSoon is already here. Or to put it another way, this project is not coming soon; it’s already here. It simple is: ComingSoon.
ComingSoon is a Drupal 7 distribution to quickly create a pre-launch site announcing your project and start collecting email addresses for your early adopters as you develop your game plan, validate customer needs and build your version 1.0.

Cheap Drupal Website Usability Testing: Practical Lessons and Experiments via Amazon’s Mechanical Turk
You need to know if your site makes sense to your users. You don’t know what your users don’t know, don’t understand, etc.. You need feedback. This is first requirement of any sensible approach to usability and usability testing.
In this post, I’m going to present a personal experiment and reflections on “outsourcing” my usability testing via Amazon’s Mechanical Turk program.
I was discussing with a recent client about the next stages of their project. We’d more or less gotten the functionality he requested right but something was still missing.
He wrote, “The site basically does what I want, but I feel like something is not quite right.”
“What do you mean?” I asked.
There are a ton of posts on the internet on the CMS wars, i.e. why X is better than Y, why WordPress is superior to Drupal, why Joomla is so bad and Drupal is the best, etc. I’m not really interested in pointing out why Drupal is better than other CMSs, because quite frankly different tools server different needs and to compare them doesn’t really explain much of the dynamics of a tool for its situation.
As I mentioned previously, Drupal remains relatively unknown in China. Even sadder are the occasional Chinese prideful responses about why Drupal hasn’t taken off: “Drupal isn’t that good”, “China (or my company) has its own system”, “I can code better via a custom CMS/code”, “I can custom code in php, Drupal is just some php with some hooks, so I can learn it in a day or two,” etc. etc.
