Drupal 8 as an intuitive platform

Object Oriented Programming and the various design patterns used in Drupal 8 are not 'professional computer-engineers'-only concepts dreamed up by blue sky academics and tested out in Drupal 8. These are tried-and-tested programming practices that have all been around for decades already, and are used extensively in millions of projects around the world with great success.

Multilingual CSS generated content in Drupal

CSS generated content is cool. You can make those little triangles everyone seems to love, but its real purpose is to let you add presentational words that would otherwise be a pain to generate in markup for some situations.

Chris great job your research about the community name. Only Google can provide a solution now?  +Chris Weber 

Hello Chris, can we change the community name? Because I'm seeing it's not editable now. +Chris Weber 

Hello Drupalers!

I wish you all a year full of Drupal 8 ;)

I'm enjoying my time with my family and also with amazing close friends. At this period of time, I'm developing a new big SaaS Drupal project and my free time is limited. I'm reading your comments, and I suggest:

1. Let's keep the "Share Knowledge" category for general sharing knowledge purposes. Also we can create more categories based on the Sub-Community idea, Drupal is a platform -- not just a simple technology!

2. Let's rename the community to "Drupal" or "Drupal+". Personally, I like the "Drupal+" because we can refer to it quickly at Drupal events. Also, I deleted my Drupal+ Community and we can rename this community "Drupal+".

Community Categories Discussion - Part 2

After my discussion with David on this very important post:

We can merge and summarize the categories to only:
1. General Discussion
2. Site Builders
3. Developers
4. Themers
5. Hosting
6. Support
7. Drupal Enterprise
8. DrupalCons Events
9. News & Announcements
10. Jobs & Marketplace
11. Sites Using Drupal
12. Suggestions & Ideas

Category Notes

Category 1: We need the "General Discussion" category as the default discussion for the category field for general discussions and mostly to prevent a post categorized in case the member doesn't see the field when posting or quickly sharing.

Category 6: Two members +Jon Stieglitz and +Seth Moon proposed the "Support" category.

Category 12: The "Suggestions & Ideas" category we can rename it just "Suggestions" -- many communities have it just "Suggestions" -- or David proposed to rename it "Meta discussion". My personal opinion is "Suggestions & Ideas" or just "Suggestions". It is up to you.

All Categories: I like the symbol ( ➥ Category ) as David mentioned from this community

So lets finalize the categories! The sidebar is waiting...
