Contributing to Drupal

Written by Bob Morse

We've been building sites using Drupal since version 4.7 (version 9 is now under active development). Over that time we've tried to find ways to contribute to the community that has created, developed, supported and promoted the platform we've used to make our living. We've provided support where we could, we've donated to the Drupal Association, but we haven't contributed code back to the community until recently.

Over several years we've built a couple modules that were created to solve specific problems with client requests. And in doing so, we've been able to pass those features on to other clients with similar needs and to provide the modules for others to download and use.

Now, these aren't major modules like Views or Media. But they are small packages of reusable code that make developing certain kinds of sites easier. And it's gratifying to see that other Drupal site builders have been able to take advantage of those developments.

These modules may seem arcane and bewildering if you are are not a developer, but if you're looking for tools already built to accomplish narrow tasks, you're welcome.

Rules List Conditions and other modules.

But we also contribute to the ongoing development of the platform by being a Drupal Association Member which requires an annual membership. It's well worth it!

Three paws up to Morse Media for keeping the Tripawds network online!!!

Hosting more than 1,200 three legged dog and cat blogs with 14,000± registered members is an ongoing challenge. Bob Morse and his team take the worry out of dedicated hosting and server management. Reliable, responsive, thorough, cost-effective, and friendly; with expert troubleshooting skills and fast answers if/when the need arises...the #Tripawds Nation is forever grateful. Thank you Bob!

Morse Media runs the web hosting, email, and Drupal maintenance for my agency's site. We appreciate what they do. Includes an optional monthly fee to keep all patches installed. Would cost us several times as much to do it all internally.

Greg Gehr

Morse Media has been my host since August 2006. In that time Bob and Co. has been by my side, making sure my websites and hosting needs are met to my satisfaction. I never get lost in the job ticket shuffle that can happen with other vendors. While I may never meet Bob and Co., I feel I can trust the people that work for Morse Media now and in the future.
