Exporting Drupal settings from test to live site

Aug 11th, 2014 by Max Tokman

Site synchronization in Drupal can be improved using https://drupal.org/project/features module that allows transferring site settings between two sites.  You can transfer types of content, fields, menus, user roles and permissions, and glossaries.

On the module settings page, select site settings being transferred.  The resulting module needs to be activated on the live site for settings to be transferred.  Views and rules not exported with the module can be transferred using standard export view / import views and export import / import export.

Transferring settings via module does have a shortcoming: content types cannot be deleted after transfer.  This can be addressed by removing it via direct link [example.com]/[my_content_type]/delete

Faster sites are way better than slower sites

Aug 1st, 2014 by Max Tokman

One of the major factors in site load times is a proper file compression, both for images and code.  File compression is not just a part of user experience, improving site load times before your visitor clicks away; it is also a factor in search engine algorithms, with faster sites ranking higher in search results
