Google is leading the charge to a more secure web. The tech giant is taking steps in the way it handles non-secure websites in both search rankings and for its over 1 billion Google Chrome users. In search results, non-secure websites will now take a back seat to those that are secured with trusted SSL certificates. Texas Creative has answered the call by retroactively adding free SSL encryption to all of our Drupal websites.

It’s Official! We have finished setting up the necessary infrastructure and processes for building client sites in Drupal 8 moving forward. A lot of that work was done during our first Drupal 8 website build, which is nearing completion. What follows is a brief glance of my first impressions and future aspirations about Drupal 8 development.
Avoid common pitfalls when updating Drupal modules. The new Update Extended module takes the guesswork out of a few tricky situations where regressions can slip into your site and break working functionality, especially when using a dev release.
We are all excited about our new Drupal 8 builds, but there are nearly 1 million Drupal 7 sites in the wild. Some of us will be writing code for these sites for a long time to come. Others of us are still building new, complex D7 sites until the contributed modules we need get ported to D8. This series will cover the first of three common mistakes we see in custom code written for Drupal 7.
Drupal 8 is an evolution of the platform and has been coded using modern, cutting-edge web technologies. Drupal 8 is architected in such a way as to have landed squarely in the ‘now’, with a clear pathway and vision for the future.
Sometime back in the mid to late 2000s when most web developers/designers began seeing the writing on the wall when it came to content management systems, most of us bit the bullet and also decided try one out. After all, our clients were pushing for it and it’s what all the cool kids were doing, so we begrudgingly fit it into our workflow.
As a client of a communication firm or marketing agency, why does it matter what content management system (CMS) is used to build your site? More importantly, should you even care? These are difficult questions, but that’s why we’re here to help you answer them.
Notice: We’ve investigated our hosted resources along with Rackspace, our hosting provider and have determined that our production hosting platform is not vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug. We’re not using the vulnerable version of OpenSSL on our production server.
