What's happening in the world of Drupal Commerce.

Showcasing the latest Drupal Commerce sites

DrupalCommerce.org exists to help people learn how to use and develop for Drupal Commerce. In addition to the traditional education tools we offer in our documentation, video library, and Commerce Q&A, we host a showcase of sites built using Drupal Commerce. It’s one thing to tell people how to use a tool to build something, but it’s quite another to show actually show them the end result.

And the results are stunning.

Since launching, we’ve received dozens of showcase requests from developers around the world. These sites have varied widely in design, feature set, market, and size, and each one provides an opportunity for new developers to learn something new.

Our DrupalCommerce.org handyman Josh Miller just finished a redesign of the showcase that will make it even easier for you to find reference sites built using Drupal Commerce and learn how they were built. Our showcase is now organized by a variety of categories based on the products sold and the tools used. You can quickly scan a list of beautiful sites for design and feature inspiration, and in our featured showcases you can find a write-up or case study describing the modules and processes used to develop the featured site.

We aim to give credit where credit is due, so while we would love for you to share your latest work with the community, we would also love to link to your company or personal website so new users know who to look to for advice and consulting when they need help. Our featured showcases in particular give you an opportunity to talk about the modules you used (or contributed!) to build a site and talk about how you solved the various configuration and deployment tasks involved in launching a high quality eCommerce project.

What’s new on DrupalCommerce.org

Well, it’s been a little over 9 months since we launched the new drupalcommerce.org. As most Drupal developers have experienced, our “wishlist” of features continues to be longer than we can invest at any one time. But we’ve been patiently adding and improving on the site since we launched. Today is a special day because we’ve retired our old modules listing and launched a number of new features for our questions & answers tool.

We've got all kinds of new features and pretty screenshots to share after the break.

Welcome to the new DrupalCommerce.org!

We launched the new DrupalCommerce.org in the wee hours of the morning after a marathon migration sprint. As I mentioned before, the old site was created on Drupal 6 in late 2009 and was minimally maintained as a community forum. We always wanted to build a much more intentional user self-help community, but we were limited by the technology we were running.

The new site was built from scratch on Drupal 7 to give us a much more flexible foundation. Aaron Dudenhofer implemented the design you see as an Omega subtheme, and I built many of the features while Kris Vanderwater figured out how to use the Migrate module to move old content into the new systems.

There's still more content to flesh out and a little site building to be done, but let's take a quick look at the most prominent new features:
