The idea of an online community has shifted from the goal of basic social exchanges to indispensable vehicles for high-tech professional users with the goal of accomplishing high-value collaborative endeavors.

To enable your technically adept users to derive value from online exchanges through communities, an effective design is the basic starting point. Today’s Web 2.0 landscape has stringent guidelines for websites and with the complexities demanded from online networking platforms, the challenges multiply considerably:

  • Communities are expected to produce robust, measurable results for competitive businesses, especially with the availability of Open Source platforms.
  • Social media conversations have raised awareness about online collaboration and communication and the need for social networking platforms that provide rich feature sets is felt more than ever.
  • The high occurrence of spam and low-quality discussions, privacy, and security threats have placed immense demands on the underlying technology platforms. Innovative approaches are desirable.

Why Drupal Is Indispensable for High-Performance Networking Platforms

Given the fact that 30 billion pieces of content are shared on Facebook each month and 50 million tweets are disseminated every day, the act of contemporary content creation by conventional limited-function websites is clearly far from a realistic goal.

Drupal is the #1 solution for smart businesses who want to convert their existing web platform into a community to leverage their brand and automate content publishing:

  • Drupal accounts for one of the most widely chosen community development platforms due to its scalability, flexibility, and short time-to-market features
  • Reliance on a customizable API, elimination of hard-coding and support for high network traffic makes simple community development possible with Drupal
  • Your website can feature role-based task allocation for writing blog posts, comments or other forms of content, eliminating security and privacy issues
  • Support for blogs, the basic unit of content sharing, contact forms and forums is available out-of-the-box
  • With Drupal, you can scale your networking platform to include new feature sets, Organic Groups, Extended Profiles or by adding Blog Themes or Gravatars
  • Traffic demands for websites can be effectively handled through ready-to-go modules

Like what you've done with this college campus webpage and all the modules you developed for the theme. Thanks a lot for this blog. Jeremy Dubois (not verified) access_time 24 Oct 2020 - 21:35 I have been watching with interest the momentum that drupal seems to be building. I use wordpress on my blog but am thinking about diving in and learning drupal. Stan Brower (not verified) access_time 24 Oct 2020 - 21:35 I am somewhat new in my blogpost and Drupal skills. How do you by-pass the .htaccess redirect rules in regards to the looping issue?  Pagination Current page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8 Page 9 Next page Next › Last page Last » Add new comment

When you want to move a Drupal site from one hosting server to another you have to ensure that the site works the same way on the new server as it used to work on the old server. There is no real fool proof way of doing this other than to meticulously document all the custom aspects associated with setting up the site and verifying it on the new server. The following is a checklist of information you have to collect before you move your Drupal site from one server to another.

Ecommerce used to be the preferred ecommerce solution for Drupal before Ubercart came into the picture. We recently worked on upgrading a Drupal 5 site with Ecommerce to Drupal 7 with Ubercart. The challenge with this upgrade was that the source data existed only in the D5 database and the corresponding code to programmatically access the ecommerce data was in D5 as well while the destination tables existed only in the D7 database with the corresponding code existing only in the D7 database. The solution we went with was to go for a full SQL query based migration to copy over the Ecommerce data from its tables to the Ubercart tables.
