sites/all folder you will find a
This directory should be used to place downloaded and custom modules and themes which are common to all sites. This will allow you to more easily update Drupal core files. These modules and themes should be placed in subdirectories called modules and themes as follows:
(In Drupal 8, use the root folders of "modules" and "themes" to place your downloaded and custom modules and themes.)
You can also find a synopsis of any contributed module or theme by visiting its project page, but many modules and themes also include
README.txt file with more detailed information.
To view a module's
README.txt file without having to download anything, visit a URL like
http://cgit.drupalcode.org/project/modulename.git/blob/HEAD:/README.txt. Be sure to first replace the word modulename with the short name of the particular module project.
For themes, visit
http://cgit.drupalcode.org/project/themename.git/blob/HEAD:/README.txt, again replacing themename with the short name of your theme project.
