    A user pathway (sometimes called user flow and user journey)  is the path a visitor takes on your website before completing the action you would like them to take.

    You can tackle the user pathway, after you have completed your user research and user personas.

    Here's how ...

    Having your business listed on Google’s Local 3-Pack is a highly coveted position for any company with a local presence.

    Google recently changed the layout of the search results on desktop; so now they look more like mobile. The Local 3-Pack is now displayed before the organic search results on all devices. This is pretty huge.

    NOTE: This tutorial assumes you have some knowledge of Drupal site building, field and field display management. It will include some theming code examples.

    If you've never heard of the Paragraphs module, it allows you to create "bundles" of fields and then call in those bundles via a paragraphs field on another entity. You can then add any number of these bundles into the entity, in any combination, to build out a page or some other super snazzy component.

    This is part 3, of a 3 part tutorial for creating a custom module for drupal 7. If you haven't already done so, you may wish to look at part 1 and part 2 first. Anyway, here is the source code of this tutorial.

    First of all, though, I have to apologize that I did not do a good job of keeping track of all of the changes made so far. I code everything before I start writing, so hopefully it is not too confusing.

    Recently, I started using the Paragraphs Module to create landing pages.

    If you haven’t used it before, go check it out. It’s really user-friendly. I feel like it’s a replacement for field collections. However, unlike field collections, paragraphs allow you to choose a different set of fields each time.

    I recently had to create a new layout that mimicked the Pinterest layout. Masonry to the rescue! (sorta...) With Drupal already crapping out the content via views, we could just use the Masonry views plugin right? Sorta. Well, it worked. ... sorta. There were problems, and I don’t like problems, only solutions.
