How to Replace Images Using Enable Media Replace in WordPress

Sometimes some images need to be replaced or updated on a site. There is an option to replace an image on individual posts and pages; however, it creates another media asset instead of replacing the existing one. It can also be a long and tedious task to go through each page where the media asset is located to replace it, and an even longer process if the image is used across multiple pages.

The Enable Media Replace plugin is an excellent solution in replacing the media asset without creating a new item to store. It also allows replacing and updating links to the new item.

How to Fix “This entity cannot be referenced” Error on Paragraphs in Drupal

Recently working on a Drupal site, creating new paragraph types as you do… While creating pages and testing the paragraphs, I got the following error: This entity (paragraph: ID) cannot be referenced. This was the first time I ever saw this error.

What I discovered was I accidentally unselected the paragraph type from the “Reference type” section on the entity reference revision field.

This can happen on any entity reference field not just a paragraph field.

If you create a page and reference an entity or create a paragraph. If the content or paragraph type is unselected from the reference type section. The next time you save the form you’ll get the error.

Manage Terms in Bulk using Taxonomy Manager in Drupal

The Taxonomy Manager module provides a different user interface for the management of taxonomy terms, particularly in batch operation. Terms can be added or deleted in bulk, instead of one by one.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to install and use the Taxonomy Manager module.

Getting Started with Comments in WordPress

An essential part of a successful blog is commenting. Comments are expressions of opinions or reactions to content on a page. These expressions allow a community to be fostered by allowing users to interact with others. They allow for additional questions to be asked and answered.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to manage comments in WordPress.

WordPress has a few settings to configure for comment sections across the website and two settings per post. There are also two recommended plugins for disabling or deleting comments and providing a subscription system for comments.

How to Manage Comments in Drupal

Drupal ships with flexible commenting functionality out of the box. Although there is a bit of a learning curve (as with many things in Drupal), once you understand the core concepts and how to manipulate the different features, you will be exposed to the power of managing comments within Drupal.

This tutorial will teach you how to manage comments in Drupal. We’ll cover the following:

  • Add comments within Drupal
  • Allow anonymous users to comment in Drupal
  • Moderate comments in Drupal
  • Create your custom comment type in Drupal

Display Content in Grids using Layout Grid Block in WordPress

Customizing the layout with columns is not always simple. Layouts are an essential part of the user’s experience on your site and will help retain visitors by making the experience better.

The Layout Grid Block plugin allows for creating column-based layouts within the block editor. Creating an appealing design for your content can be done with one block, and customizing is simple. Everything can be done with a few quick clicks, from adding columns to customizing how different devices view the page.

Analyze Blocks using Find My Blocks in WordPress

Whether managing a handful or a hundred content pages, there comes a time when we analyze the content. It is helpful to know what blocks are used either through the core or through additional plugins, where they are located, and how many of them are on the site.

Find My Blocks makes compiling all block types and their locations simple. Everything is displayed in one window and can be filtered and sorted.

Backup Drupal Sites using Backup and Migrate Module

Backup is an essential aspect for every site but often overlooked. Backup seems time-consuming and unnecessary, but when things happen, it can be a life saver freeing you from unexpected damage. It is a question of how backups can be made quickly, preferably automatically, without taking too much time. In addition, it is also essential to make sure when backups are restored, it works reliably as expected without surprises.

In this tutorial, we introduce a module that helps to provide such a solution.

The Backup and Migrate module can backup the database and files of a Drupal site. The module also provides a restore operation of the backups when needed. It can be easily installed in a Drupal site, and it is free. With this module, the authorized user can perform backup manually or automatically. Backups can flexibly include only the database or user files, or both.

When operated manually, backups can be downloaded immediately in compressed file format, or stored in a safe location in the server. When automatic operation is preferred, it can be scheduled, and the backed up files in compressed format will be stored in the server. The site can be taken offline with a notification message during the backup procedure, and return to normal after it’s completed.

Remember you should never rely entirely on a single backup solution. Things can still go wrong. The backup and restoration process may fail for many different reasons. It’s good to have a second backup system, such as at the server hosting level.
