Drupal 7

Indeed, Drupal 7 does not appear on the home screen of Acquia anymore. However, you can still set up a Drupal 7 site manually with minimal effort. At the time of this writing, Drupal 7 ist still not in EOL and is receiving security updates. As such, you should go to https://www.drupal.org/project/drupal/releases and see what the latest version of Drupal 7 is (currently 7.77). Click on the link for the latest Drupal 7 version and you will be given an option to download it as a .zip file. You should extract the contents of this file into a folder where you want your site to be. Then, when you start Acquia you will be asked if you want to create a new site or import an existing one. Select that you want to import a site and point Acquia to the folder where you have extracted your Drupal 7 distribution. This will register the site normally and you will be able to launch your site from Acquia, so you won't have to set up PHP, MySQL and Apache yourself, but will be able to easily use Drupal 7.



How to install Drupal 7 with Acquia Dev Desktop?

Hello, I have downloaded the latest version of Acquia Dev Desktop and am now trying to set up a Drupal 7 site using it. However, the start screen only gives me Drupal 8 and 9 as vanilla Drupal distributions and I can only get Drupal 7 if I use a modified distribution that does not fit our needs for the course. I've also tried installing older versions of Acquia, but unfortunately these fail to load the site list completely. What can I do to get a Drupal 7 site on my computer?

Are you trying to install the modules as an administrator? They should have the rights to do so.


I want to use the feature plugin to export our CBR system. On the feature site, under the "Components - Content types" I don't see our CBR Model, I currently see only the examples, "Article" and "Basic page", is this okay, or should I see there the CBR model?

Thanks in advance


Drupal 7 - Export of Case structure and instances

I have a problem with the export, actually with the feature function. I want to export our group case structure and instances, but the problem is under the content type there isn't the CBR case listed, is this an issue or exist another way to export the cases? Thanks in advance Cheers, Markus


Add modules on Drupal

I have a problem concerning adding new modules on Drupal. I am using Drupal 7 and the button "Add new module" is nowhere to be found. When I try to go to "/admin/modules/install", it tells me that I don't have permission to access this page. Did someone encounter the same problem?

First trial was to analyse the function answers_init, where
drupal_goto('node/' . $node->answers_related_question->value()->nid, array('fragment' => 'node-' . $node->nid->value(), 'alias' => TRUE));
is called to change the URL for viewing the answer together with the question.

Instead of a simple node structure the whole entity is passed via arg(1). And thus I do not need the entity_metadata_wrapper to extract data.

function answers_init() {
if (arg(0) == 'node' && is_numeric(arg(1)) && arg(2) == '') {
$node = node_load(arg(1));
if ($node != '' && $node->type == 'answers_answer') {
$node = entity_metadata_wrapper('node', $node);
//if ($node->type->value() == 'answers_answer') {
drupal_goto('node/' . $node->answers_related_question['und'][0]['target_id'], array('fragment' => 'node-' . $node->nid, 'alias' => TRUE));
//drupal_goto('node/' . $node->answers_related_question->value()->nid, array('fragment' => 'node-' . $node->nid->value(), 'alias' => TRUE));

Drupal miracle

On two sites the new answers module is deployed. More or less on both sites the same set of modules is active. On one site if we want to view an answer an error is shown that the related question cannot be loaded by the EntityStructureWrapper: Unknown data property answers_related_question. On the other site this errors does not occur.

Why are the existing questions are not shown?

In the migrated TechScreen the new answer module is used to manage problems and solutions


Create a new content node

When you create a new content node (e.g. project), then you can extract this content node with features.
