Upgrading to Drupal8 – Episode 4 “Fuck it, Hello WordPress!”

Website , Drupal

The Drupal for Facebook philosophy is that the functionality already built into Drupal should be used to create Facebook Applications. Where possible, we use Drupal's user management, permission schemes, blocks, views, etc. to implement the Facebook App. Experienced Drupal users will find it very straightforward to build a Facebook App. While Facebook developers new to Drupal may want to spend some time on learning best practices.

WHOA! Website has crashed…

Programming , Drupal , Life , Website

That will teach me to go tinkering in SQL… *sigh* Bollocks, Bugger and Damnation! On the bright(ish) side this site has been around since the days of […]
