About

Hi, my name is Steve Todd [more about me] and you've reached my website. Here, I plan to provide details regarding some of my development interests. It will include a lot of "this is how I actually did it" items, as I've found these very useful. I'll go with actual experience every time.

This site (mstevetodd.com) is running Drupal 8.2, with a Bootstrap sub-theme I call Waccamaw. The background image is the Waccamaw River in South Carolina at flood stage. Many of my best memories, and quite a bit of my family history, occurred on or near that river and its surrounding swamps.

Riegel Linen

A Mount Vernon site, built on Drupal 7 with the Consilium theme, this site is a showcase of our Riegel Linen product line, part of our Consumer Products Group.

From a design standpoint, it features large vibrant images throughout the navigation and product pages. It also looks great on mobile devices.

Infant Bedding

This shopping site features Drupal Commerce product presentation, shopping cart and credit card processing. The theme is Flatastic, highly modified to fit the needs of the Infant Bedding marketing folks. Numerous views are used to showcase the products, including the Isotope viewer and filter on the front page.

Dog Tag Art

This interesting commercial site allows visitors to design their own pet tags, which are then printed and sealed via a special process onto ultra-strong recycled steel cores. They also sell crowd-sourced designs and pay commissions to the artists.

My involvement on this site was in three areas:

Hub City RR Museum

My first Drupal 8 site, this provides hours of operation, descriptive information, contacts, and lots of photos of the Hub City RR Museum in Spartanburg, SC.

The site is based on the free Jethro theme, with some minor css tweaks for color and Google font selection. The banner slider is "Bootstrap Carousel", which is included in the Views Bootstrap module.

Palmetto Division of NMRA

This is a Drupal 8 site, migrated over from a Drupal 6 site. It features a large photo gallery, tagged by event date. The migration was done by creating Data Export views (as csv) on the old site, and writing a bit of custom php on the new site to retrieve the csv. The code loops thru each gallery item, retrieving and saving the image file locally, then a creates a node for it, complete with taxonomy.
