About the project
The client required Drupal experts to work within their department's budget to fix the existing issues that their multiple sites possessed.Few of the biggest issues were the pending updates and the spam sign ups that flooded their forum along with the inefficient search feature that was not good enough to pull out the right data.
We worked on the forum sign up form to create a more structured database with the username suggestion that's easy to identify and monitor.

How the features impacted the client's business
We fixed the spam sign-ups by adding Google Recaptcha to the sign-up module.Additionally, we included validation fields to identify data entered by the bots. This completely put an end to spam sign ups. In the back-end, we redesigned it to display user details in a sortable table format to access data faster. Additionally, the data were also made viewable on the table.
The search results were improved to make the search feature access data much over the forum post itself to let user access as much information as possible. We also provided complete training to the site admins to let them make maximum use of their new functionalities. All pending Drupal and security updates were done without site downtime.
