A new client reminded me that it has been a while since I posted anything to this blog. I did, however, publish something elsewhere. I've been tooling around with two Drupal modules: field validation and display suite. I wrote up some documentation for field validation here: https://www.drupal.org/node/3104330
It's always hard writing help documentation to know where to start. How much do you assume the reader knows? If you get super thorough with every detail is takes forever to read, and if you don't include enough detail it's only useful for handful of folks.
I've used the display suite module before bundled with panels in the panopoly installation profile, but never on it's own. I had no idea how powerful it was all by itself! A lot of its features I had wrongly attributed to panels. Most of the clients I serve don't have the budget for custom code, so being able to adapt solutions via powerful UI tools like display suite is an attractive prospect.
