Experience level: 
Session Time Slot(s): 
Saturday, May 17, 2014 - 12:50 to 13:30

Basically I will talk about tips and tricks that I've got into last year, while I was helping some organizations in Building of an Install Profile for our Government. This Install Profile was intendend to be used for the websites of all of the Ministries of Moldova and other Institutions of Central Public Administration. There are already 2 instances live, 7 almost ready to be launched and more are coming up!

The knowledge is general and I'll do my best just to emphasize the hard parts of the process.

We'll be talking about:

  • Creating Install Profiles, with custom Installation Process
  • Custom Responsive Theme that can be customized (slightly) by its users
  • Identifying and Packing Features
  • Unpacking Features and the pain of it

We all know that features are great, but sometimes they are a pain, especially when it comes to some modules and their configuration. As the whole Profile is based on features and related custom functionality, I will cover most of the difficulties I've encountered.

And basically that's it.
