Improve D.O. profile page: remove links that say "These pages have been disabled due to high traffic..."

To improve the friendliness of the individual profile page, it would be great to convert some of the non-used links into plain text. It is disappointing to have a lot of links that all give me the same, non-informative message when I click on them, namely: "These pages have been disabled due to high traffic. We apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks!"

Wheels To Borrow Instead of Reinvent

There are some things that other pieces of software do really really well. When you can borrow or copy their wheel, why go to the trouble of building your own from scratch?

Clipboard integration

I've made a short video how it works in WP when you buy a commercial product called Image Elevator. I was in luck to have beta test it and now i use it on my blog. Using it (like on Gmail) is just amazing - it makes writing a blog post really fast and natural as using MS Word. it is under 1 minute

If this could be achieved in Drupal it would be a killer feature for all content creators.

The nearest implementation I've found is filefield sources (with clipboard) + insert, but it is not as sleek as seen on video.

Trying out a new tool for surfacing good ideas

It's been a pet peeve of mine for a long time that, while D.O and G.D.O have a lot of great ways to add ideas and discuss them there's really no efficient way of collectively prioritizing the ones we should focus our efforts on.

I have spent a lot of time trying out different tools that do this, as well as trying to design and build them. We may at some point reach a home-grown solution, but in the meantime I have found a very simple and effective tool that I'm trying out. It's called Tricider. I've posted an initial question here:

Findings from D8 UX study: Moving between site and admin interface (overlay alternative)


For this study, wanted to learn how well content editors could move between admin and non-admin pages, using the patch proposed in Issue #787896, an alternative to Overlay. We recruited 7 participants with experience building or managing content in CMSs. Their Drupal experience ranged from none to many years, but all of them were satisfied, neutral or unaware about the Overlay (that is, none of the participants were dissatisfied with it).

Why admin menu module is still not included in the Drupal core?

I found and loved admin menu module during Drupal 6 ages.
This module became so popular and I was sure that it will be included in Drupal 7 core.

The main strong point of admin menu that we can open any level of Drupal admin in one click.

But now I can see that admin menu is not even in Drupal 8 core.


I'm sure that it is sufficient reason to include it in Drupal core.

Seven Style Guide update

A few months ago in February we proposed a style guide for the Seven theme, we are now well underway. This is a recap and look ahead.

The objectives of the Style Guide are:

  • Identify Drupal core values that we can use to determine the look & feel for the Seven theme.
  • Unify the visual language in Seven and ensure the overall look-and-feel supports the core values.
  • Identify the visual and UI patterns used by Drupal core so that they form a conscious, shared language for us to built upon.

Looking for resources for a D8UX session at UX Camp Brighton


In my continual efforts to spread the Drupal word here in Brightoncisco I've signed up to the forthcoming UX Camp Brighton where everyone does a session, and I decided to do mine on D8UX:

D8 UX study: Moving between site and admin interface (overlay alternative)

We are planning to run a usability study with 12 participants on Drupal 8 based on the issue #787896 Add a link so that administrators can return to their most recently visited non-admin page. The Drupal 8 will be a default installation, with the addition of the patch posted in comment #64, and some basic content to give the participant something to work with.

In particular, we want to learn from three types of people (content editors that use Overlay, site builders that use Overlay, content creators without Drupal experience):
