There’s no doubt SPAM is always a pain. While a couple of different solutions are being researched, CAPTCHA is up to this point the sort of industry standard. It becomes of some importance then figuring out how you can add CAPTCHA to your Drupal forms. We’re getting this kind of questions quite often, which is how we decided to create a step-by-step tutorial and make it available via our Support Center.
More and more people nowadays surf the web via mobile devices. This essentially redefines the entire web, including the web design and development practices. Our favourite platform, Drupal, is getting prepared with the mobile initiative for its next major release and the discussions around all of this. So, it seemed like it was high time to do something about all of this on the theme level as well.
Meet Bootstrap Business
Bootstrap Business is an all-new, free and responsive theme that has been ported to Drupal as part of our ongoing Drupalizing project, for bringing top quality themes to the Drupal community. The original design has been created by Ayo Themes (check them out on Twitter too), under the name AyoShop, and has been licensed under GNU General Public License v2.0. The theme has been built from the ground up and is based on Bootstrap 3, which is currently the best mobile-first, front-end framework. And it doesn’t end here. Bootstrap Business raises the standards bar for free themes, as it comes bundled with three clean and catchy color schemes.
Rather than focusing on creating frameworks that will require an expert’s experience to build a site on, our goal at More than Themes is to provide high quality theme products, which are easy and mature for anyone to use — pro in Drupal or amateur. In light of this, Bootstrap Business is currently getting its final touches and will soon be on the way to Drupal.org (and some of your Drupal sites, hopefully). A sneak peak is already available for you to take a look at on the project homepage.
Update: Bootstrap Business is now officially out and free for anyone to use. Go get it »
Here are the necessary instructions for creating a block for Related Nodes with Views in Drupal.
All screens come from our Premium Responsive Drupal theme Best Brand. Best Brand is a complete Drupal distribution including several modules, content types, view pages, view blocks, pre-configured image styles as well as a premium theme tailored together to achieve its functionality. It comes with an installation profile that allows you to have a fully-functional site up and running in few minutes.
Best Brand comes with the build in Product content type. Product content type comes with several fields - one of them is the Product Categories field (field_product_category).
More than (just) Themes products integrate with the Superfish module supporting gorgeous multi-level drop-down menus with smooth motion. Superfish module integrates jQuery Superfish plugin with your Drupal menus.
Superfish module supports by default multi-column sub-menus. You have always the option to enable this plugin through Home » Administration » Structure » Blocks » Superfish 1 (Superfish)’ block » MULTI-COLUMN SUB-MENUS (BETA).
Drupal Commerce does not send an order notification email to site admin (site email) out of the box. However, there is already a rule set up to send the order notification to the user. It’s called “Send an order notification e-mail”. You have always the option to clone this rule, but instead of sending the email to the owner of the order, just send it to the admin’s email address.
The function template_preprocess_block prepares the values passed to the theme_block function to be passed into a pluggable template engine. You can see more at the corresponding Drupal API page.
In your template.php (sites/all/themes/THEMENAME/template.php), you can preprocess the variables to make alterations before block.tpl.php serves them up.

It’s been a few months since we released our last new theme, Social Style. We haven’t been lazy.
In addition to getting swamped with requests for new custom theme projects, we have - as always - allocated a tremendous percentage of our resources in servicing the Drupal community, where we’ve been having a rather active first half of the year:
- We have released our free theme Corked Screwer.
- We then released yet another free theme, SimpleCorp.
- Meanwhile we released a new, responsive version of BlueMasters,
- and a new release of Skeleton with various improvements, as well as
- a new release of Corporate Clean with several fixes and improvements.
Still, we didn’t stop there; we have been working hard on a number of new, premium themes that we are soon going to start rolling out, starting today, with Best Brand.
