In the end: Porting and improving FAQ modules


as I wrote earlier, I worked on the FAQ modules in this summer. For the midterm evaluation I ported the FAQ module to Drupal8, but the show must go on, I had more plans for this project.

My problems was with this module, that you simply can not keep organized many question-answer. So I figured out a new structure of taxonomy terms, related on great FAQ pages I found on the internet. I started to work on my new module, called 'FAQ pages'. With this, we can create individually pages, with editabale path and a custom structure of taxonomy terms.

Gsoc Project: Disqus Module for Drupal 8

Hii !
This is my second blog post for the GSoC 2014 project, port disqus module to drupal 8. We have the module been ported to drupal 8 and yes with a few minor issues still to be fixed.
In Drupal 8, disqus comments thread can be added as a field to any drupal 8 entity (eg. users, nodes, etc). Besides disqus can also be used on disqus blocks provided the the field-data is saved on that entity. So this provides the users a bit more of a flexibility of placing the disqus thread on the page the way he wants.
