Drupal 8 modules and Solarium installation

These steps are only for Drupal 8.

Download modules using Composer

Better download the modules using Composer than Drush. This will install the required libraries, including the class Solarium. General (deeper) instructions may be found at Using Composer to install Drupal packages through Drupal.org

Run these commands in the Drupal root folder.

Add fields to a block [D8]

This documentation is written for the 8.x-2.x version of Display Suite.

By following this method the site builder gets a block to place that can have a set of fields as defined by a view mode. The block's display can be templated in twig accordingly, and its theming will reflect any selected layouts in the display suite controls.

Install PECL uploadprogress on Ubuntu 12.04 to 16.04

Requirements

These instructions will work on the following systems:

  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with PHP 5.5/5.6/7
  • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with PHP 5.5/5.6/7
  • Ubuntu 15.10 with PHP 5.5/5.6/7
  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with PHP 5.5/5.6/7

You will also need command line access with admin/sudo permissions.

Note: If you have an older version of Ubuntu or PHP you really should if possible update for security reasons (as well as performance and bug fixes).

Installation

Installation is quite simple; in your command line run:

Flag_notify

Flag Notify is a module that allows flexible email-based notification of comments, content and (optionally) groups using the popular Flag framework.

These pages describe the installation and usage of the module.

Docker based development environment

I have rewritten the Docker based development environment to use the images provided by Docker4Drupal (https://github.com/wodby/docker4drupal). So some of the comments below become outdated. The comments about using symlinks or vfs are uninteresting, as the use of symlinks/vfs in that way are not the docker way.

Performance

Locking

There are two different common locking problems you will likely encounter and it is very common to assume you have a single locking problem. Since these two locking problems are actually completely unrelated, it causes a lot of confusion as people look for the solution to “the locking problem” and get stuck on the wrong fix or a combination of the two.
