Breaking Bad Drupal with Best Practices

The Pixeldust approach to every site utilizes the latest stable Drupal core, savvy content architecture, a fully responsive and dynamic theme, and strict adherence to site building and coding best practices for functionality requirements.

The division between layout and content is a core concept of all content management systems, and in architecting any site, we build an intuitive, content-first, site architecture. Our approach is to translate content ideation into semantically scoped Drupal entities resulting in extensible, future-facing, content structures. Theming and layout are completely separate from content, utilizing dynamic templates that fluidly scale into theme requirements, rather than dedicated content-type based design. As our site building best-practices, this approach ensures the site is easy to administer, optimized for SEO, and malleable enough to handle feature augmentation or refinement.

Building functionality and workflows from stable, contributed modules will guarantee the site is easily updatable and will scale to incorporate new modules that may be needed in the future. Being familiar with the breadth and quality of Drupal contributed modules, we never unnecessarily customize: leveraging existing, community-reviewed functionality results in a more extensible codebase. When customizations are necessary, we deeply understand Drupal’s API and coding best-practices, ensuring our work does not conflict with core or other contributed modules.

Throughout our entire development  and Drupal support process, we value communication and understanding of our client’s goals so that instead of a collection of disparate features, we deliver a site that intelligently meets the specific needs of each client. This is our 99.6% Pure Drupal approach.
