The Nodequeue module allows users to collect nodes in an arbitrarily ordered list. The order in the list can be used for a any purpose, such as:
- A block listing teasers for the five top news stories on a site
- A user’s favorite music albums
- A group of favorite from which one is randomly displayed
Nodequeue provides a simple drag-and-drop interface to manually order any queue. Additionally, it allows nodes to be added and removed from queues without needing edit permissions to the node. Nodes can be added to queues either from a queue management tab or by links on the node teaser.
Nodequeue provides a robust API that allows other modules to define smartqueues, which are associated with external data. For example, the included taxonomy smartqueue creates subqueues for a given queue for every term in the chosen vocabulary. Nodes are then only eligible for subqueues whose term matches the nodes terms. This makes it very easy to have queues for each category without cluttering the management page.
Modules that Extend Nodequeue:
- Smartqueue per-user: Makes a personal queue available to users of one or more roles.
- Smartqueues for Organic Groups: Makes a queue available for ordering by members of an Organic Group or Group admins only.
