The benefit of Drupal is that it can be designed exactly to your specifications. That being said, Drupal module development can be challenging. It requires a strong knowledge of coding and experience in creating modules specifically for Drupal.
However, custom modules will be more beneficial for providing the functionality you need for your site. That is why it’s essential to have a skilled development team to develop the modules and multifunctional tools for your store.
What Does Drupal 8 Module Development Include?
Drupal modules now have the most necessary features and functionalities included stock.
As for Drupal 8 modules, each module can be created solely for your site, specifically crafted to include the desired functionality. Plus, module updates are much simpler for Drupal 8, meaning minimal maintenance and less downtime for your site.
Let’s look into some processes of getting a custom Drupal module for your store.
Drupal Module Installation
The first step in module installation is to find the module you’d like to use. If you have an established site, creating a backup before the new setup is an important step when using an untried contributed module. By testing the backup thoroughly before beginning installation, we ensure that you have a clear baseline.
After we will do the research of modules together and you make a final selection, the next step is the installation. In Drupal 8, the process of importation is linked to enabling, so there’s one less step to installation compared with Drupal 7. We handle working with both versions so that you will get needed modules that perform right.
Finally, the “Operations” heading on the far right offers some options that will be important in the next step: configuration. Module configuration is not required for every module, and it will only be an option once the module has been enabled.
The “Extend” page is another place where you can see if each enabled module has permissions associated with it or an option to configure. This page will also include a direct link to the option.
After saving the “Configuration,” the installation is complete. We will test each module after installation to make sure that the site continues to run smoothly.
Custom Drupal Module Development
Each module can be developed as per the customer’s ideas and needs.
- The most basic aspects of functionality can be accomplished with core modules. These come stock with the CMS.
- Next, you have contributed modules, which have been created custom by previous users when crafting websites.
- Finally, developers can create entirely new modules to address unique functions. These can be used for any purpose – SEO, tracking, eCommerce.
Drupal Module Update
The first step requires to look into any module-specific instructions.
Next, prior to the update, we’ll back up your files and database. This ensures that your update won’t damage the site beyond repair if it doesn’t go right.
Then, the site will be put into maintenance mode. This will be done from the “Administration” page.
The whole process of module update needs some time and a bit of knowledge, but we’ll ensure it is done right. Drupal 7 or 8, this can be done with fewer resources and effort from your side, so you can focus on your business instead of managing this process.
Drupal 7 Module Development
Drupal 7 offers loads of contributed modules that have been developed for previous sites. These have been created by developers worldwide throughout the active life of the CMS. In addition, new versions of the modules are released regularly to keep up with security needs and updates.
Even with this backlog of contributed models, there are still some functions that require custom development.
If your store requires Drupal 7 modules update or customization, we can cope with these tasks.
