How to setup auto-translation of nodes using Rules and Tmgmt

This how-to guide describes how to set up automatic machine-based translations for content on a Drupal site. Whenever a node is created, translation jobs will be created for every language specified, and depending on how you set up your translator, you should be able to completely automate the translation process. For this project we are using SDL, but you should be able to use other translators.
1. Download and enable the translation management modules. This can be done through Drush or through the modules interface in drupal.

Beyond Marketing: My Highlights

As soon as I started reading Tim Walter’s new white paper, Beyond Marketing, recently posted on Acquia’s web site, I was glad I had a yellow highlighter handy.
I use a digital marker, of course, but for me it serves the same purpose as the old, analog version -- the one that smells like homework: to capture ideas that are worth dwelling on.
And there are plenty in this report.

1st DrupalCon, 1st Contribution! Meet Oliver and Victoria


DrupalCon Amsterdam was something of a family outing for me. My wife Francesca attended all week and my kids were able to come out Thursday evening to attend Trivia Night and the Friday sprints. My daughter Victoria had sewn a dress and a cape to appear as Drupal Girl on Thursday evening. Her weeks of work on that really paid off; she was a big hit. She also got to meet her Drupal idol, MortenDK, who was the inspiration for her brand new Drupal.org and Twitter username: Drupal_Princess. There's a great photo of her meeting Webchick floating around online, too.

Acquia Cloud: by developers, for developers

As a Drupal developer for 7 years, I’ve shed plenty of (mostly figurative) blood, sweat, and tears over the sites and modules I’ve built. At Acquia, I work on our Cloud tools, making sure my fellow developers never have to worry about many of the issues I used to deal with constantly. There are three basic areas where Acquia Cloud makes developers’ lives better.
“Don’t make me think about hosting”
The Acquia Cloud platform is fully managed, meaning you don’t have... Meer

“Content is Critical to Brand Differentiation” said everybody at shop.org.

If I had to choose one theme of this year’s shop.org annual summit, it would be ‘Content, Content, Content’. The summit started with REI CEO Jerry Stritzke where he described REI as a Storytelling Company. Starting with the brand’s origins as a community of climbers, he described the passion for the brand held by consumers and employees alike, with the passion fitting of the brand he described. He talked about REI.com as a ‘Catalyst for Discovery’ and his desire to make the site more than just a... Meer

Password protecting non-production environments


Protecting your staging and development environments is nearly as important as protecting your production server. There are several ways to do this, including adding modules to your sites or modifying your settings.php file.
Add a module
The preferred method of website protection is to add either the Secure Site module or the Shield module to password protect your website. While both modules offer this basic protection feature, the Search Site module... Meer

Handling the waves of Shellshock

2014 has been a busy year for the open source security world. First there was Heartbleed, with multiple security problems discovered in OpenSSL, then last week’s Bash Shellshock and Xen vulnerabilities made mainstream news, requiring a large portion of the Internet to be patched or rebooted.
Acquia’s mantra is “we won’t let you fail”, and this past week... Meer

Why we’re dropping the “e” in eCommerce. And why you should too.

The rise of m-commerce, the struggles with social-commerce, the growing maturity of e-commerce, the integration of technology into physical commerce… it can be, no it is, overwhelming. As marketers, we feel the need to distinguish between the different types of platforms consumers use to research and purchase products. We have mobile teams responsible for developing shopping apps, and optimizing the mobile experience. We have social teams responsible for increasing engagement through social channels, promoting product and, sometimes, trying to figure out how to crack the code on social... Meer
