Year after year, the mobile phone industry continues to expand with 2014 being no different. According to a recent study, it is estimated that 63.5% of the global population have a mobile phone. To put that into real numbers, approximately 4.55 billion people currently own a mobile phone. Not surprisingly, that number is expected to increase to a whopping 5.13 billion by 2017.
Yesterday we discussed creating a WordPress Newsletter using MailPoet. Today we’ll switch to another CMS and talk about sending newsletters with Drupal.
If you use Drupal, are you always wanting to email your visitors the latest info about what’s going on for your business or website? Do you want to do it without resorting to 3rd-party services like MailChimp? Do you want to send emails right out of your dashboard?
Sounds like you need to create an email newsletter with some internal functionality. There’s a way to do that with Drupal!
Want to send newsletters to your visitors but don’t know where to start? Don’t want to outsource or bust your wallet? How about sending newsletters right from your WordPress admin panel?
There’s no need to use 3rd party services for sending newsletters. You can do it yourself for free. Furthermore, you can control everything from the dashboard of your beloved CMS–very convenient for sending interesting content to a smaller community of readers.
About 30,000 websites were hacked daily about a year ago. Without a shadow of a doubt, the number has grown immensely since then. Not all of these websites lose their data (i.e., user accounts and content). In fact, hacking is just one way of losing data.
For example, you can also lose data due to botched updates, corrupt hard drives, human error, and server hiccups. The solution to these issues is simple — back up your data regularly.
No WordPress site can do without essential WordPress plugins that manage certain aspects of your website. Default functionality is the skeleton, and plugins are the meat and inner organs… well, at least if a rather crude analogy is used. 🙂
It’s true that you must ask yourself if a plugin is really necessary when you’re about to install one, or several.
The most commonly used language for WordPress blogs is, of course, English, which is based on the classical Latin alphabet. There are, however, plenty of other languages that use different alphabetic systems, such as the Cyrillic for some Slavic languages and the Greek script for Greek. This can cause problems with your blog post URLs (slugs) if the user’s computer doesn’t recognize other alphabetical systems than Latin. This in turn makes visitors much less likely to share your content and click your links.
You blog. You use WordPress to blog. You want users to share your content.
So far so good. However, if the content is to be shared, it has to look swell. That’s where social media plugins come in. They give you control over the way your content looks in social networks—and search engines as well — and make the content much more ‘shareable’ without much extra effort on your part.
There are many lists for the best Drupal SEO modules if you search Google. However, many of these lists do not cover modules that are used for increasing internal page relevance, strength, and even user-generated actions. In the list below I’ll describe a few Drupal SEO modules that we’ve used that will not only enhance your site for search engines but for your valued users. We’ve also included a great list of social media modules to spice up your Drupal website. Enjoy!
