Looking Back To The Future

Herne Bay Frozen

2014 has been an extremely busy year for Makak Media with lots of exciting projects from old and new clients alike.

There's been a lot of highlights but below is a small selection of projects that covers the wide variety of Drupal and App development that we provide.

2015 is going to be a interesting year what with Drupal 8 on the horizon plus the BackDrop fork of Drupal 7 being released in January!

Our Most Popular Drupal Posts

Looking back over my blog it's made me realise how much Drupal has pushed the company forward and how at the same time we've been able to help the community along the way. I thought I'd put this post together as a bit of a retrospective and a starting point for how the blog is going to change in the coming months.

We're riding the crest of the wave that is Drupal's burgeoning popularity amongst the masses, not just the few and in sharing our most popular recent Drupal related posts it will help those recent adopters at the same time.

So here's our most popular recent Drupal posts and do look out for a further post on how the blog will shape up in future, more posts for beginners coming soon.

The Ultimate Resource For Drupal Beginners

After responding to a question on Linked In I'm a Drupal newbie, do you know of a free online course that can help me understand better how to use and manage Drupal? I thought I'd take the answers and then develop them further into this guide.

10 Great Summer Time Drupal Website Designs

10 Great Summer Time Drupal Website Designs

Summer time is now officially here, the sun is out (for the moment!) so what better time to get some inspiration for your Drupal web designs.

We all like a bit of splash of colour in our designs but it's not always easy to find that balance between colourful and break out the sunglasses time!

So hopefully I've pulled together 10 designs, all on Drupal based sites (read more on Drupal if you don't know your CMS from your HTC), that bring that dose of colour along with good design.

Voucher Codes & Discounts with OffersOn + Drupal

Voucher Codes & Discounts

Voucher Codes & Discounts are big business since the advent of sites such as Groupon and So with this in mind OffersOn was created supplying daily voucher codes, discount vouchers and meal deal restaurant vouchers.

OffersOn wanted an Open Source solution and having researched the market Drupal was top of the list. A design was already in place so it was our job to build and theme the site around this.

The client is very happy with the result but we thought we'd highlight just some of what went into the site.


5 New Drupal Modules

New Drupal Modules

Here's the latest group of new modules I've selected for your viewing pleasure! I'm going to make this into a regular feature so do let me know if there's a module out there that deserves some attention.

Out of the 5 modules below the two that stand out for me are Views Supertable and Textualizer. Take a look at the demo linked below and you'll see what a cool module Views Supertable is. The Textualizer module also looks good and uses JQuery to create some neat text transitions and is supported by most modern browsers and IE!

Although a couple of the modules are still dev versions they are in active development so expect a full release soon.

Children's Puzzles A Great Christmas Gift!

Children's Puzzles

Kay and Vie sell children's puzzles, T-shirts and toys so with Christmas fast approaching they needed their website working. Sadly their Magento site was broken and wouldn't allow access to the admin section or checkout.

Initially we fixed the issue, which turned out to be a common bug with the PayPal secure setting but it turned out the system wasn't what the client had hoped for. So next stop was migration to Drupal and Ubercart with its more user friendly design.
