When evaluating site features, look for the label

August 02, 2017

SiteFarm has a lot of cool stuff in it. So do a lot of other sites used by campus departments. Thing is, a lot of sites are using the same theme and branding, but they're built on entirely different platforms or custom built for a specific client, and the problem is--all our sites look like they are part of the same service. This is probably the only downside of a successful branding campaign. So, how do you, our client, tell the difference? Check for the label.

June 01, 2017

"How do I store my files and documents to use in my site?"

As the Drupal community’s Media Initiative is still in development and will be for a while yet, it’s important to have an interim strategy for managing non-image file types, the aforementioned PDFs, documents, spreadsheets, and so on.
