The battle to "engage" site visitors is on. Gone is the day where a CMS just helps you create pages that you hope visitors read & consume. Today your site must provide extraordinary visitor experiences that cause them to take the action you want - from buying to reading to playing - and measure the effectiveness of the experience so you can improve it as needed.
Improving site engagement must be simple. Making it simple in Drupal requires a variety of Drupal component parts to be assembled - and a few gaps filled.
This is a Drupal Group devoted to assembling those components. Many of the relevant Drupal components have their own individual projects on drupal.org or groups here on g.d.o. But this group is an umbrella where we combine those activities with our own in one place to get a singular view of the problem, and the Drupal solution.
I just started a blog about digital experience management with Drupal, and am writing a series comparing CRM Core and Redhen features. A lot of people seem to have questions about the similarities and differences between the two modules. Since I am researching just that for a project now, I figured I would share my findings.
The first post is here:Read more
Apologies for posting this same conversation to two groups, I couldn't determine the best place for this conversation to take place as it is relevant to both groups.
I wanted to start a discussion on best practices for optimizing content stored within Drupal for click-throughs and conversions. I am familiar with external tools like Optimizely and Google Analytics Content Experiments, and use them regularly for A/B and multivariate testing. They have not proven great, though, when wanting to automate testing of content within the CMS.
Here is a general use case:Read more

Drupal is now become one of the most popular PHP based content management system. Drupal is gaining more interest now a day because it will adopt some of the Symfony Components for upcoming version 8. By adopting HttpKernel, Drupal and Symfony projects will become more inter-operable. It means that you will be able to easily integrate your custom Symfony applications with Drupal and vice-versa.
Today Drupal is used by celebrities, non-profit institutions, schools, Fortune 500 companies and Government websites.

One of the requirements for the LSD initiative is that layouts themselves be editorial controlled. This means providing revisions to layouts with the ability to move the layout through an approval workflow.
I'm not proposing we put this functionality directly in core, but we provide a way for contrib to "easily" add the functionality.Read more
We want to give you a quick run through our ideas and current state of research for the Blocks & Layout initiative. I am working together with Useradvocate and EclipseGc to form a broad understanding.
One of the first things I want to tackle is describing how we use "context", because this is one of the most common questions. A really quick way of describing it is that context(s) are the data objects that blocks depend upon, to determine when display (yes/no) and how to display.Read more
I want to get serious about redoing the information architecture of Drupal. To be frank, it's a problem. Users don't know what's structure and whats content. Neither do we. I see developers all the time asking where their modules belong.Read more
Drupal 8 wants to provide a much-improved workflow for content creators. One of the most critical screens in this is the content creation page. This issue outlines a plan for implementing a new design for this page.
The main issues that this design wants to solve are:Read more
One of the key ideas behind the new D8 architecture is that of resources being identified by unique URLs. It sounds simple enough but, behind it, I think there are some exciting potentials for transforming Drupal’s UX strategy. I want to share some ideas about that kind of transformation here and I’ll tackle it from a few angles: ‘what is a page’; the principle of definition-usage pairs; and IA Space and URL semantics.Read more
