Technology has completely changed the way businesses were operated in the past. Now, marketers can make their products available to the customers at their finger tips at any place and time. About two decades ago, nobody could ever imagine that buying and selling would be carried out in such a seamless manner sans the brick and mortar retail outlets. All this has been possible only because of technological advancements. Technology is progressing in leaps and bounds, opening newer avenues for success. Fast, smooth, glitch-free and efficient software programs are making it convenient to perform a number of tasks at the same time. Off late, one such software that has taken the programming world by storm is Drupal.

The online retailer has the responsibility to serve the new age customer who views the products on ecommerce site, reads reviews on web-forums, asks for advice from her friends on social media and finally purchases the product from the online store. It is important for them to track consumer behaviour across all touch points and analyze behaviour to predict preferences and responses and personalize every engagement to attain their loyalty. And this is only possible through a very efficient, interactive content management framework. This where Drupal comes into play. As far as content management is concerned, Drupal has proved to be a real game changer. It has how become one of the mandates for people wanting to excel in online business.

As per the reports, Drupal is being embraced by users for personal blogs, corporate, government and political websites as well. Drupal is being used by nearly 5.7 percent of the global websites i.e. 11,53,231 Drupal websites in 229 countries in 180 languages. Drupal is one of the most popular content management frameworks that complements collaboration and knowledge management.An open-source content-management framework, Drupal is written in PHP and is distributed under the GNU General Public License. This enables the user to share, copy and modify the content according to his requirement. Most importantly, it is free.

How can I fix this? Thanks, Sean webmaster access_time 14 Jul 2020 - 15:52 In reply to Icon doesn't show by Sean (not verified) What do you see when you view the source? Search for stumblethis_button and you should be able to see the code for the image and the URL. Then you should be able to troubleshoot from there.

Most webmasters do not realize this, but a lot of the content on lot of websites can be accessed from multiple URLs. A simple example would be where www.example.com and example.com leads to the same page. This is a fatal mistake in Search Engine Optimization and search engines penalize you for duplicate content. The correct configuration would be where the above two urls will lead you to the same page but example.com will redirect you to www.example.com with a 301 (Moved permanently) status which will not result in search engines penalizing the page. It is very easy to configure 301 redirects using Apache .htaccess file and the process is the same for a Drupal installation also.

I'm trying to make example.com show as www.example.com, and I'm running into difficulties. I'm on Apache 2.0 and using the following lines in my httpd.conf file: RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^xxxxxxxxxx\.com$ [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.xxxxxxxxxx.com/$1 [L,R=301] When I go to http://xxxxxxxxxx.com, I get http://www.xxxxxxxxxx.com (as expected). However, when I go to http://xxxxxxxxxx.com/node/1 (it's a Drupal site), I get a 404 thrown and the URL changes to xxxxxxxxxx.com/var/www/drupal/node/1. Same thing with www.xxxxxxxxxx.com/node/1. Any suggestions? I want to run without Drupal's .htaccess file (instead incorporating these calls into my httpd.conf file). webmaster access_time 14 Jul 2020 - 15:52 In reply to Rewrite including filesystem path by Anonymous (not verified) I think the problem is with the base path which results in the redirection to /var/www/ part. The best approach I would think is to start with drupal htaccess and then strip out parts and move to httpd SNVC (not verified) access_time 14 Jul 2020 - 15:52 This is definitely a good guide. Thanks for this. wellyson access_time 14 Jul 2020 - 15:52 This is really nice and helpful. Add new comment
