Building the ultimate frontpage solution with Thunder and Drupal

Senior Fullstack Drupal developer

Our 30+ media customers, from mediagroups to independent newspapers and magazines, have specific needs for their frontpages that include custom article ordering, selecting display style per article, injecting other content within the frontpage flow (ie. ads, newsletter signup, other content lists etc). We have gathered their requirements and written a generic Editorial Frontpage Specifications (draft).  


QuickFront and QuickerFront module in Ramsalt Media 1.0

We are working to get it included into the Thunder initiative. Going forward we are going to work closely with Mladen and Thunder to make sure our work is shared and useful for others in our community, and we would like to join forces on the implementation.

With this post we wish to open up the discussion to other companies that have the same challenges like us. The draft is open for suggestions and comments, please feel free to comment and give us feedback: Editorial Frontpage Specifications (Open for comments).

Feel free to contact us at any point, or give your comments on this blogpost.

Google Analytics er komplisert og kan virke litt skremmende selv for digitale hoder. Ramsalt Lab har gleden av å inviterer til webinar med Einar Ryvarden, digitalredaktør i tidsskriftet.no.

Onsdag morgen ble vi vekket til et mareritt; det brant i et av datasentrene vi bruker. Hele Ramsalt våknet tidlig denne morgenen for å hjelpe til å redde det vi kunne fra brannen.
