Edit Your Own Help Text With New Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 Module | Zivtech

Thu, 03/31/2016 - 14:06 -- rprice

There is the Better Field Descriptions module for Drupal 7, which allows a separate permission to let editors override field help text and labels, but its user interface wasn't simple and intuitive enough to really meet the need. Looking ahead to our new Drupal 8 projects, I thought it would be great to solve this problem in a simpler way as a Drupal 8 module.

Lewis Nyman - Should Drupal add (another) JS framework into core? Not in the name of UX.

Thu, 01/28/2016 - 11:38 -- rprice

The big problem with this process relates to User Experience Design. No one is even discussing what we would try and build and how it would work. We advise our clients to understand their problem and their users before spending time solutioneering, this is twelve levels deeper than that. Drupal has a development driven culture, it always has. I'm not surprised people are more interested in debating the framework of the week instead of looking at the problems it could be solving.

Escape Admin | Drupal.org

Wed, 06/11/2014 - 07:53 -- rprice

This is a Drupal 7 backport of the functionality added to the revamped toolbar: #787896: Add a link so that administrators can return to their most recently visited non-admin page which adds a 'Back to site' button when the user has clicked on an administration URL from a non-administration page. The 'Back to site' link will persist until the user returns to a non-administration page.

Spark update: mobile administration in Drupal | Dries Buytaert

Tue, 08/14/2012 - 15:33 -- rprice

HTML/JS prototype we've created for a mobile toolbar and dashboard for Drupal that we hope to include as part of the Spark distribution and then propose for Drupal 8 core as part of the Drupal 8 Mobile Initiaitve.

Drupal 7's default administration tools (e.g. Toolbar module and Shortcut module) were not designed in a “mobile first" way, and as such can be difficult to work with on tablets or smartphones.
