Drupal: Working with Data Imports Using Feeds

Importing content into Drupal has been through a few iterations in the last few years with Feed API, Node Import, and Feeds (the successor of Feed API) all being useful modules in Drupal 6. For some jobs you would use one, for other jobs you would use the other based on the type of content you were trying to import – with Node Import being more successful with images and alt tags.

The Drupal template file system is very robust and will only be improving when Drupal 8 is introduced to the public in the near future. Drupal 7 introduced a few changes to templates – one of which being the option to hide and show fields by setting and unsetting them within the tpl file itself. A typical template file in Drupal will include a call to
print render($content);

Drupal and WordPress are great for automating processes. Internal linking is a useful strategy for both search engine optimization and helping your site visitors quickly and effectively navigate through your site to find the content they want. On the SEO side better internal linking helps improve and identify what a page is about through the use of anchor text, and, because visitors have something to click on, decreases your bounce rates while increasing your time on site rates.

In the world of website layouts and content management systems layout designs and styles may behave differently than you had originally anticipated. This can be due to a few different factors, but all stem from the same rule of thumb – CSS (cascading style sheets) will load styles found further down the sheet if two styles match the exact same classes, ids, and html tags.

Jason Narog
, Drupal Developer

When migrating sites, exporting and importing databases, fetching databases from Git repos, or combining smaller SQL files into larger ones via a command prompt, you may run into an issue where Drupal — particularly the drush command line utility — can’t find user 0. User 0 is the anonymous user (or non-logged-in user) for any Drupal site and is the default user system tools such as drush and cron use when completing tasks on your website.
