24th June 2020 Drupal 9 , Drupal Contribution
close

on 24th June 2020 / by webmaster
  We are glad to announce that a new version of Search404 2.0.0 was released on the same day Drupal 9 was released. This version fully supports Drupal 9.  In this release of the module, we’ve chosen to go with the fully semantic versioning model, which means, the version 2.0.0 supports Drupal Core 8.8.3 or higher version. The 8.x-1.0 release will be there for some more time to support older versions. The 2.0.0 release mainly removes the deprecated code and uses the new solution that is supported by Drupal 9. You can find the full changelog here - https://www.drupal.org/project/search404/releases/2.0.0 Download it and try it out from https://www.drupal.org/project/search404 A demo installation is available at https://search404.demos.zyxware.com/ for those who want to try it without installing it. Zyxware Technologies as a Free Software Company has been one of the flag bearers for the Free and Open Source Software movement in India. Since our inception in 2006, we have been actively promoting the idea of FOSS and related freedoms through various activities like Freedom Walk to spread the message of Freedom, Freedom Toaster for making Free Software accessible to public, contributions to Swathanthra Malayalam Computing, development of a real time epidemic outbreak tracking system for Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Kerala and much more. Zyxware Technologies is one of the top ten contributors to Drupal, we have delivered more than 200 Drupal projects across diverse sectors and currently more than 60,000 websites use modules and themes contributed and maintained by us. We have also been an active member in the Drupal community in the USA, Australia and India.   For those who are new to Search404 Search404 is an alternative to showing the standard “404 Page Not Found”. When a 404 error occurs, this module does a search on the keywords in the URL, e.g, if a user goes to http://example.com/does/not/exist , this module will do a search for “does not exist” and show the result of the search instead of the 404 page. This should help retain visitors coming in from old URLs linked from other sites or from search indices. Features Jump directly to the search result when there is only one result   Jump directly to the first search result even when there are multiple results   Do a "Search" with custom path instead of a Drupal Search when a 404 occurs   Use a 301 Redirect instead of 302 Redirect   Use OR between keywords when searching   Ignore specific words from search query   Ignore specific paths   Ignore specific extensions   Custom error message   Custom page title   Custom page text   Redirection URL for empty search results   This module fully supports the default Drupal Search as well as any other search engines used with SearchAPI or any other means with custom search URL functionality.  We sincerely thank all the community members who contributed to the porting of the module. These are the people who primarily helped the d9 release,  Frederick Henderson Vimal Joseph Byron Duvall Barbara Bombachini Martin Anderson-Clutz Sarath Kumar Mahipal Purohit  Leave a reply Your email address will not be published.

When Wuhan reported an unknown cause of Pneumonia to WHO in Dec 2019, they never thought that it would turn out to be a pandemic that can make the world standstill. The whole world is fighting against the COVID 19 Pandemic and the City Councils are not different from it. Being standing on the frontline, the responsibilities are vast and the resource availability for the same is limited. Leveraging technologies that can bring in high impact is an approach followed by most of the City Councils. Out of the several technology innovations available in the market, substituting human resources with AI Conversational Assistants was the one that is being widely adopted. Whether it's fighting against misinformation or being in the frontline for public service delivery, AI-powered chatbots can take the lead. In this article, we are talking about how City Councils can use a chatbot in their fight against the pandemic.   Some Use Cases where Chatbots can be deployed Fight Against Misinformation: Chatbots can be trained to act as a frontline touchpoint for public information delivery. Whether its FAQ or Query resolution or real-time data update, the chatbot helps 24*7*365 days.    Virtual Advisory: When citizens are confined to their home, they can seek advice from chatbots in various areas like health and well-being tips, symptoms, home remedies etc. Natural Language understanding capability of bots ensure apt response for citizen queries.   Case Reporting: Chatbots can be connected to emergency services to ensure quick reporting of cases by the public when they have the symptoms.   Daily Updates: Bots have the capability to initiate communication triggers, which can be used to deliver daily updates on the pandemic and its prevention.   Service Requests: Bots can collect service requests to form citizens. This includes Waste Collection, Street Cleaning/disinfection, Pothole reporting etc   Payment Collections: Chatbots can serve as a single point for all payment collections. Whether it's a water bill or electricity bill or taxes, citizens can make payments without stepping out of their home.   Feedback Collections: CIty councils can also use chatbots to understand whether their citizens are satisfied with the level of service delivery or do they require anything in addition. It is also possible to conduct surveys using chatbots.   Where they can be deployed? Websites: Chabot widgets can be enabled in websites so that citizens accessing the website can communicate with them.   Mobile Applications: Any existing/new mobile applications can offer chatbot support via the platform.   Social Channels: Bots can be deployed on platforms like Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, Telegram Etc. where citizens are present.   IVR System: Chatbot services can also be implemented in IVR systems. These platforms are capable of understanding human speech and convert it to queries and respond back to them.    How long will it take to deploy bots who can serve citizens? Depending on the number of use cases and deployment channels the time is expected to change. Training chatbots to these use cases also require some time. But considering the urgency of the situation, it is possible to deploy chatbots with pre-trained intelligence. They can be put into action from the next working day itself. Many chatbot platforms are offering this.  Let’s join our hands to overcome this contingency. To help City Councils in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic, we are coming up with a  FREE Pre-Trained Chatbot Solution that can be deployed in 24 hours. Reach us, if you are interested. We are more than happy to deliver you a demo of the same.    REF: https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/events-as-they-happen   Leave a reply Your email address will not be published.
