Drupal Europe is an entirely volunteer-led event, welcoming hundreds of people to celebrate the power of the open source community.
We are excited to support our clients, BASF and Chatham House, in presenting sessions at Drupal Europe. Representatives from these diverse organisations will speak about their experiences with Drupal, embracing open source software in industries traditionally opposed to the very concept. Paul Johnson, our Director of Drupal Services, will co-present the sessions, providing technical detail and expertise.
We’re back for Part 2 of this content and search sharing project, so let’s have a quick recap:
In Part 1, we set up migrations to pull in regional content to the national site and configured a Solr core to index them for location searches. Then we altered the Solr queries, so that the default behaviour only shows content from the current site.
The remaining step is to render the search results that come from other sites. The main problem here is that the default Drupal/Solr/Views integration uses Solr to find the content before rendering it through Drupal’s rendering engine. However, the regional sites are unable to render content from the national site... at least not through the usual process.
CTI have recently been working with The Wildlife Trusts to create a platform that will be available to run all of their local trust websites. In addition to their UK-wide site, each regional Trust has their own website (e.g. Surrey Wildlife Trust and North Wales Wildlife Trust). Rather than the overarching case study, this blog post is a deeper technical dive into how we approached two of the key requirements: content sharing and cross-site searching.
For the second year running we’re sponsoring the North West Drupal User Group Unconference! Supporting and contributing to the Drupal Open Source community is an important part of life at CTI Digital so we are excited to sponsor such a pivotal event in the Manchester Drupal community.
This June, Acquia will host their inaugural Acquia Engage Europe conference in London. Naturally, as key Acquia partners in the UK, we will be eagerly attending the conference.

The Engage conference is about sharing insights, experiences and plans for the future of transforming the digital landscape.
Hot off the press at Magento’s annual Imagine conference in Las Vegas this week was the news about Magento 2.3 and the new features it will bring for merchants.
Whilst no release date has been pencilled for Magento 2.3, this blog post highlights what merchants can expect from the next major release on the platform.
DrupalCamp Scotland is taking place at the University of Edinburgh on Saturday 19th May. Bringing together like-minded enthusiasts, the camp offers a chance to practice coding at a supportive sprint, to network with the Drupal community and to hear inspirational speeches. With seven speakers on the schedule, including some very big names in the Drupal community, we are proud that one of our own developers, Rakesh James, has been invited to speak.
