Joseph and I went to Drupal Camp Utah on May 4th, 2018 (Star Wars Day). This was our 3rd camp at Utah, but it’s been a while since our last one, so there were a lot of unfamiliar faces, but that’s never bothered us before.
Here you'll find posts about both the software and the Backdrop community.
There is hope for the human race after all (or "Drupal, Backdrop, and the awesomeness of Open Source")
I don’t have as much time as I’d like anymore to contribute to the open source community, but when the entire Drupal community came together to address a highly critical security issue just before Easter, I got to witness a global-scale, multicultural, coordinated reaction, that made me regain hope for the human race. It even motivated me enough to write the third blog of my entire life...
Backdrop is pleased to announce the first of three annual releases for 2018 that includes some brand-new features and a long list of fixes!
One of the new features that stands out in the 1.9.0 release is the ability to manage individual files. You can now replace a file, and all pages where that file is referenced will be automatically updated.
Wouldn't it be great to work on tangible projects and help non-profit organizations further their cause with Backdrop websites? We often work in a theoretical or abstracted space when working on Backdrop core and contrib software. I was delighted by the idea of working with the Backdrop community on concrete real websites for a cause.
Yesterday I launched the latest version of Panda.id.au, my personal blog, which I re-built from the ground up using the Backdrop CMS. This is my second Backdrop website to date; the first being my business site: PackWeb.com.au. A lot of work went into this seemingly simple, minimal blog website, so I thought I'd write about how I built it and how I contributed to Backdrop along the way.
Many Backdrop CMS contributors have been hard at work, and it’s now time to share the fruits of their labor with the rest of the community. Backdrop CMS is proud to announce its 9th on-time release: Backdrop 1.8!
This minor release comes with refreshing design improvements for several administration interfaces and a few new functionality enhancements to improve Backdrop’s usability overall.
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.
