This module provides a dynamic interface for content administration.

It is intended to supplement Drupal's built-in content management page, and features these improvements over the standard interface:

  • Uses AHAH to show node previews and node edit forms within the existing page.
  • Uses AJAX to perform searches, apply filters, and retrieve the results without reloading the entire page.
  • Adds filters by author and text content (using Drupal's built-in search).
  • Shows how many nodes exist within a given set of filters, and allows direct navigation to any page of results.
  • The built-in content management page requires the 'administer nodes' access permission, which grants access to a broad range of content-related operations. This module's page is accessible to users granted a permission for only that purpose. Through this page, normal content permissions are enforced, so content can be viewed, modified, or deleted only by users who have these permissions.

JavaScript is required for most of these features. Also, this module requires PHP version 5.2.

Installation

  1. Download the package and extract the files to your modules directory.
  2. Enable the module on the Modules configuration page.
  3. Grant the appropriate users permission to 'access content administration' on the Permissions page.

Usage

  1. Go to the Content Administration page provided by this module under the Administer >> Content Management menu.
  2. You should see a set of characteristics by which to filter nodes, and a list of nodes with icons to view, edit, delete. Clicking on these buttons will display the node rendered, an edit form for the node, or a confirmation form to delete the node.
