Creating a custom build of Modernizr based on your Drupal setup

When your site is ready to go live, you'll want to take inventory of which feature tests you used, and reduce your Modernizr JS library to include only those tests that you need. This way it is as small as possible, downloading and executing more quickly than it would with unused feature detections present and firing.

The Modernizr module has you covered; it keeps track of all the tests being requested by other modules and themes — just visit admin/config/development/modernizr. There are three sources: modules, themes, and tests within your current copy of modernizr.js.

Getting started with Drupal 8 administration

This section is an introduction to site administration for new Drupal 8 users. It covers the use of the administrator account and offers suggestions on where to start.

Understanding the administrator account

At the end of the installation process, the person who performed the installation is automatically logged into the site with the administrator account. You may see the administrator account referred to as "User 1". This administrative account is automatically given all privileges for managing content and administering the site. The best practice is not to share this account. You can always grant users permissions by assigning them to certain roles.

Where to start

Administrators will generally need to address the following areas in a new site.

Check your site's status


The Asset module proposes a new approach to the media management in Drupal, resolving a long-standing problem of reusable media files (images, videos, documents, etc) that evolved into the problem of reusable media content (images/videos/documents/etc with the attached content like description/licence/etc).


Cloud (a.k.a Clanavi) is a set of modules that lets users administer public and private clouds from within Drupal. Clanavi provide users the ability to manage public clouds such as AWS EC2 clouds as well as private clouds like OpenStack and XCP.


User Roles

One of the most basic features of administering user Web Site permissions is through the creation of roles.

Rather than assigning individual permissions to each user, roles are used to assign specifically selected permissions to selected users. The use of roles allows greater control over groupings of permissions and also makes it easier to assign or remove a role (thus multiple permissions) from a user.

For example assigning the role of "Author" to select authenticated users can be used to allow them to write and publish articles on your Web Site. Permissions for the "Author" role could open the permissions under "Node", "Article", - "Create new content", "Edit new content", and Delete own content" that other users and/or roles do not have. If a user no longer writes for your Web Site, Their User Profile can be quickly modified by removing the "Author" role and thus, all the permissions assigned under that role.

Your first step is to go to Administration/People/Permissions/Roles. Once there you will find three default roles of "Anonymous", "Authenticated", and "Administrator" along with a text box allowing the addition of a custom role.
