Mediacurrent Dropcast: Episode 7

In this episode we celebrate the founding of our country by talking up a few modules we have discovered and enjoy. Ryan talks about the Image Field Focus module and how it makes cropping a joy without the gamble of a cropping image style. Bob waxes poetic about the WYSIWYG Field module, which is very similar to his WysiField module. As always we keep you up to date about Drupal 8 and Ryan brings it home with The Final Bell. This was recorded on the day before all went out for the holiday weekend so there are times where we derail the train. At least this time we have an excuse.
