Downloadable content

Have inherited a Drupal site created for a charity. Am total newbie to Drupal. We want to create downloadable content (documents, MP3 files etc) accessible to members. Please point me in the right direction.

node = taxonomy

In drupal 7 any node has fields, and taxonomy has fields.
Why now used taxonomy?

Taxonomy are used ONLY for link between nodes and creating a hierarchy...
hierarchy - book (or any variant book)
link between nodes - reference
Why now used taxonomy in the Drupal 8?

I creating an entity (e.g. node) with the type of dictionary and use it as a dictionary...

Creating platforms with the stub makefiles

A stub makefile is an example of a master makefile which calls other makefiles to create a platform.

new hosting service looking for Drupal experts interested in recurring revenue for all Drupal sites

Do you have any suggestions of how I could find a Drupal expert who would be interested in providing customized versions of this application for my company’s new hosting service ( We offer a recurring commission to anyone who creates an application template, customized to work on our hosting service, for every web site that is created using that template on our service once we go commercial (for any sites exceeding the limits of resources we give to free accounts).

Creating a customized app template for the app directory on our service isn’t that difficult. The biggest thing is just to configure the app to point the correct cloud database and file services.

In fact, our own engineers have created a customized Drupal template already which has been deployed in dozens of web sites since June 25th (when we launched our beta). We would actually prefer to let someone else who is bona fide expert with Drupal make money off of our hosting service in exchange for maintaining a Drupal template in our app directory rather than doing it ourselves. We aren’t “experts” with this app and can’t be sure we won’t make a mistake sometime. :)

If you have any suggestions about how I could reach out and find a Drupal expert who might be interested in working with, please let me know.


Spark: Authoring Experience++ in Drupal 8 core

Spark is an initiative announced by Dries Buytaert at DrupalCon Denver, and focuses on authoring experience improvements for Drupal. We spent the months before DrupalCon Munich prototyping in the Drupal 7 version of the Spark distribution, and now we're focusing on Drupal 8.

We are trying to change the game and ship Drupal 8 core with a default authoring experience at par or better than both open source and proprietary competitors. Join us! Here's what we're working on, and where you can help.

How to get involved?

- We hang out in IRC on #drupal-contribute and #drupal-usability.
- We use the "Spark" issue tag to note the Drupal core issues we're actively working on.
- Team leads are identified below; ping them if you'd like to help with code and/or reviews. If you don't know who to ping, ping webchick. :)

Data type plugins (TBD)

Initial stub page, just to outline the different child-pages we need.
