Drupal Recipes

Fox Valley Drupal in conjunction with other local Drupal user groups is engaging to create a collection of site-building recipes of core and contributed modules.

There are many great blog posts, training resources and tutorials already available to the Drupal community, so our intent is not to duplicate, but rather enhance and collect the "best of" examples and keep them updated. As they are deemed complete we hope to add them to the documentation at Drupal.org.

Responsive Images

This recipe is how to set up the Responsive Image module in Drupal 8, Breakpoints and also set up Image Styles.

What are responsive images?
Using responsive images means loading images that have been specifically sized for the user screen based on breakpoints. This practice makes websites load faster on mobile devices because image sizes are optimized for mobile devices. This is different than fluid images when large images are scaled down with CSS.

Combating Spam & Phishing 

  • Spam & phishing mail messages have been a problem since the Internet became popular and it has kept growing exponentially. 
  • Despite the numerous attempts at creating anti-spam tools, there’s still a fairly high number of unwanted messages sent every day.
  • To combat spam email three tools were developed, SPF, DKIM and DMARC.
