    We now have a new updated post on Drupal Responsive modules for you to enjoy!

    In today’s modern world, the expression is you have to either evolve, adapt, or get left behind. Us monkeys have certainly learned to adapt, which is one of the reasons we love Drupal as a content management system.

    We love designing Drupal sites, and one of the greatest things about the platform is the sheer number of slideshow options available to meet any web design need. The folks over at Symphony Themes recently highlighted some of their favorites, and they’re the subject of more than a little chatter among us monkeys.

    One of the greatest things about Drupal sites is how easy it is to integrate with many products. Around here, Drupal integrations come to us as naturally as throwing barrels comes to Donkey Kong.

    One of the most challenging things for a website owner to do is to design and post content from a mobile device. One issue is that content takes a while to upload through mobile networks. In addition, content produced on mobile devices is limited.

    Laptops and desk top computers are much easier to use when posting content, but as far as carry one on the go, not so much. However, on the other hand, mobile devices may prove to be practical for an on-the-go lifestyle, they are not easy to post content from. So, what’s the monkey solution?

    We’ve made no secret about our love of Drupal as a content management system, and Drupal continues to grow each day, improving in power, performance and dependability. The latest news in the Drupal community proves that it has finally developed some powerful e-commerce chops. Drupal Commerce, the leading e-commerce company on Drupal, recently announced that it has skyrocketed past 300,000 total downloads.

    Responsive websites are designed to present a similar user experience to mobile and desktop visitors, regardless of how the site is accessed (tablet, smartphone, iPod, etc.). Drupal features make responsive design a delicious breeze, and it can also be accomplished on WordPress sites with the right amount of monkeying around.

    In today’s world, businesses and their websites go together like a monkey and a banana - when you see one, you just sort of expect it to have the other. When a business chooses the wrong style of website, it can kind of be like seeing a monkey with a carrot. Sure, it still makes sense and meets the basic nutritional requirements, but who are we kidding? It just doesn’t look right!

    Drupal’s creator, Dries Buytaert says that Drupal 8, which will be released later this year, will be the “boldest release to date.”

     What is going to be so great about it? Well, for starters it will contain elements of Symfony2Web framework. Drupal will be transforming from a content management system to a unified Web platform. With these platforms, companies can build Web based services for both internal and business web sites.

    We as society have come a long way just in the past ten years. It used to be that companies didn’t have websites at all.

    Like many Drupal development shops we have fully embraced the excellent Omega theme. As a responsive base theme it helps us efficiently turn out great Drupal sites.

    The only thing that it is missing is built in support for Compass and SASS. I have been hearing rumours that the next version of Omega(4) will be adding this in, but in the meantime I am going to show you how to add them in about 5 minutes of time.

    Have you ever heard of CKEditor? Well, come to find out; it has been chosen as the default rich text input method for Drupal 8. Those who have developed CKEditor are thoroughly excited about being picked as the default editor for Drupal.

    Keep in mind that Drupal 8 has not yet been released. It is scheduled to be released sometime in 2013. Again, Drupal is frequently being mentioned as one of the top open source content management systems out there.
