A few weeks ago I had to go through the process of setting up php code sniffer on my new computer, and realised how confusing most of the blog posts out there are and how many loops and posts you have to jump through to get it set up.
I decided to write a quick post with all the commands in one place and small descriptions for most of the commands:
Theming in Drupal 7 has always been a bit fiddly at the best of times. Unbeknown to me a small feature crept into a Drupal 7 release without me realising - the backport of theme debug settings from the much anticipated Drupal 8. This feature allows you to view debug information directly in the mark-up and not have to go chasing template suggestion names from within the Drupal admin screens.

Last Friday saw another Responsive Conference take place at the Dome in Brighton. I had previously heard a lot about the conference, this being the third and (I believe) final outing I was thrilled that we managed to secure some tickets for myself and a selection of the Zoocha team members.

Any online shop who applies to become a Google Certified Shop and implements the code on their site, will go through a ‘verification period’ which lasts from 30 days to 3 months (depends on the amount of orders you get per month); and at the end of the period you will become an official Google Certified shop.
With frontend development getting more and more complex every day, there are more and more steps we as frontend devs need to go through in order to get the job done. Of course there is still something to be said for crafting your HTML / CSS, but this isn't always required / possible.
