Internet Marketing Strategies and Drupal Tips
In this tutorial, I will describe the process of how to update your Drupal 7 website using Drush.
This theme is great for an art gallery or artist portfolio. It uses jQuery slideshow on the home page and a jQuery lightbox on the Artist Bio page. Contact us to convert this theme to use with Drupal, Wordpress or Joomla.
This theme features a Responsive home page slideshow which means that it will display correctly on moblie devices such as iPhones, iPads and tablets. This website is for theme demonstration purposes only.
Join us for our next meetup on May 10th at 7pm at the ABC Restaurant at 15373 Fraser Hwy. The doors are open at 6pm if you would like to arrive early, that's OK. Katy of SeascapeWebDesign.com will be presenting on How to Build an Intranet with Drupal 7. Katy recently built a documentation library for a company intranet. Come prepared to share your ideas and experiences on how to build an Intranet with Drupal.

I had most menu items either as triples or higher, and the whole admin system was going berzerk. I'm not yet sure if the issue is resolved yet... but steps I took:
What to do?
It is frustrating for many bloggers when spammers leave mulitple comments on their blog posts. Some have turned off commenting all together. There is another option. In blogs built with Drupal, you can require that all comments be approved before they are posted live.
So I have changed the settings in Permissions so that all comments must be approved before they get posted to the site. If a spammer leaves a complimentary comment with a spam link, I take out the spam link and leave the compliments. As the blog editor I have the job of editing comments and making sure they are on topic.
I encourage my readers to leave comments, add your opinion and other information that will add value to my articles and blog posts. You are welcome to post a link to your own website in your signature. All comments must be approved before they are posted live.

A mobile-friendly website is one that displays correctly on hand-held devices such as smartphones, iPhones, iPads, and tablets. It also has these features:
- Loads fast – bloated sites cost more money to access
- Easy to read – mobile phone screens are 1/5th the size of desktop computers
- Easy to navigate – menus have limited space on mobile devices
- Minimal scrolling - not just vertically but also horizontally
- Avoids using Flash – because Apple products do not support Flash
Did you know?
“When Google looks at how to decide which ads to feature in its Google AdWords program, it will consider how well a site is tailored for mobile devices, things like whether it works well for touch, is made for smaller screens, has shorter load times and avoids Flash.” (Source: http://gigaom.com/2011/09/21/google-pushes-advertisers-to-optimize-sites-for-mobile/)
I like the improved admin interface although it took me awhile to get used to it. I turn off the admin overlay, it takes too long to load for my taste. I like to set up shortcuts to add content types as it saves a few clicks. It’s much easier to download and install new themes and modules, just click to upload the compressed file.
I recommend the Sky theme for Drupal 7. It’s a great starter theme. It looks great out of the box. Most starter themes have no styling to start with. http://www.drupal.org/project/sky
