Fields pending deletion

This is an issue that can happen in both Drupal 8 and Drupal 9. This is due to the fact that Drupal doesn’t actually delete the data for the field when you delete the field. It deletes the data during cron runs. If cron hasn’t been run enough times since you deleted the field, drupal won’t let you uninstall the module.

Drupal media and image style

Retrieving the image URL from an image field in Drupal 8 and 9 seemed pretty straightforward too. Even the solution for getting the image style URL from a simple image field can be found quite easily. Getting the image URL from a media field can also be looked up easily.

The example/result of "Update Manager Advanced" module

composer

Since starting from Drupal v8.8.0 has removed the Wikimedia merge plugin and replaced it with a Composer 'path' repository, a native Composer feature which serves the same needs as the merge plugin with fewer disadvantages, in this short article, I want to show how to manage dependencies for a custom project.

menu items

nodes

Sometimes we need to completely remove all nodes, for example, when you copy a site for another project. Here the examples.

Scroll To Top / Back To Top

Very often when developing or maintaining a site, clients ask me to create functionality in the footer that will scroll the page to the top. I know this can be done with the helpful and wonderful Back To Top module, but I am the person who tries to have as few enabled contrib modules as possible on the site and save time on support in case a new version of the module appears. In my short article, I will show how to make similar functionality in 5 minutes.

Drupal Redirects

Sometimes we need to completely remove redirect entities, for example, when you copy a site for another project. Here are two examples.
