Official CiviCRM support for Backdrop CMS

If you've been holding back from using Backdrop because your site requires the popular and powerful CiviCRM, hold back no longer. You can now easily install CiviCRM on Backdrop, or migrate it from your Drupal 7/CiviCRM setup.

CiviCRM and Backdrop CMS, two projects who focus on helping non-profits, fit together quite nicely. You can now easily install CiviCRM on Backdrop and benefit from the robust Drupal-like architecture with an extra helping of the user-friendliness added by Backdrop.

Backdrop 1.7 released

Backdrop CMS, the comprehensive CMS for small to medium-sized businesses and non-profits, is pleased to announce its 8th on-time release: Backdrop 1.7!  

This minor release contains some major enhancements to the Rich-Text Editor for the content editors, as well as substantial improvements to Layouts, and Views for the site architects. 

DrupalCon NA & Ambitious Digital Experiences

This year's DrupalCon North America may have been one of my favorites so far.  Baltimore was a wonderful city, the sessions I attended were incredibly inspiring, and the convention itself was extremely well-organized.  And, for the first time, I started to feel comfortable that Drupal 8 was finding its footing instead of being stuck in "wait-and-see mode." 

Contributed Modules for Backdrop CMS

A stack of Lego blocks.

One of the strengths of a good content management system is its ability to add on extra modules for additional functionality. In an open source environment, such as BackdropCMS, many developers share their contributions for the benefit of all, and some of these contributed modules become frequently used and a de facto solution to specific website needs.
