Extend and customize Drupal functionality with contributed modules.
If a module doesn't quite do what you want it to do, if you find a bug or have a suggestion, then join forces and help the module maintainer. Or, share your own by starting a new module.
Provides an Administrative UI and Developers API for managing the used mail backend/plugin.
The module is ready to be used in Drupal 8, there are no known issues.
Allows to use different backends for formatting and sending e-mails by default, per module and per mail key. Additionally, a theme can be configured that is used for sent mails. In Drupal 7, that must be enabled for each template, in Drupal 8, it works reliably for any template being rendered while building and sending e-mails.
This project provides D7 versions of the 'node_reference' and 'user_reference' field types, that were part of the CCK package in D6, at functional parity with the D6 counterparts. See http://drupal.org/node/533222 for details.
Note for users upgrading from References 7.x-2.0-beta3
There were a couple changes in the way 'References' views are handled ("referenceable nodes/users defined by a view"), which might require double-checking those existing on your site:
The 'label' (node title or user name) is no longer automatically added if not included in the view. If some of your 'References' views currently do not include it, you might want to add it explicitly, else it will no longer appear in the widgets.
The HTML generated by the view is no longer stripped out before being handed to "checkboxes / radios" widgets, thus allowing advanced formatting. You might want to check for Reference views having fields configured to display "as links", since the (probably unwanted) <a> tags generated by Views are not removed anymore.
The Better Exposed Filters module replaces the Views' default single- or multi-select boxes with radio buttons or checkboxes, respectively. Description fields and Select All/None links can be added to exposed filters to make for a better user experience.
Views Filters is a powerful tool to refine the results returned by a given view. When you expose a filter, you allow the user to interact with the view making it easy to build a customized, advanced search. For example, exposing the node type field as a filter lets your site visitor limit their search queries to just blog entries. Better Exposed Filters gives you greater control over the rendering of exposed filters.
Why use this module? Because it provides a better user experience than the default option. Try telling a client that they should click on an option, then scroll to the next option and ctrl+click on it. Don't just click 'cause you'll lose your first selection. Oh, and ctrl+click again to unselect an option... Yeah, not user friendly.
People understand checkboxes and radio buttons.
What else can I do with BEF?
The BEF handbook page provides some basic recipes making exposed filters a much better user experience.
Flex Slider module integrates the Flex Slider library with Drupal and several contributed modules which allows you to build responsive, resizable slideshows. Meaning the slideshows automatically adapt to the size of the browser window or device.
Some features of FlexSlider slideshows include:
Touch enabled nagivation
Configurable slide animations
Multiple sliders per page
Allows you to use Flex Slider in a few different ways
As a library to be used with any other theme or module by calling drupal_add_library('flexslider', 'flexslider') or preferably with libraries_load('flexslider') or with flexslider_add()
Integrates with Fields (flexslider_fields)
Integrates with Views using a style plugin (flexslider_views)
This module allows Drupal to bypass the PHP mail() function and send email directly to an SMTP server. The module supports SMTP authentication and can even connect to servers using SSL if supported by PHP.
The advanced help module allows module developers to store their help outside the module system, in pure .html or .md (MarkDown) files. The html-files can be easily translated simply by copying them into the right translations directory. The entire system can appear in a popup or not as the module prefers (and by taking away access to view the popups, a site can force the popups to not exist).
Special menu items is a Drupal module that provides placeholder and separator menu items.
A placeholder is a menu item which is not a link. It is useful with dynamic drop down menus where we want to have a parent menu item which is not linking to a page but just acting as a parent grouping some menu items below it.
A separator menu item is something like "-------" which is not linking anywhere but merely a mean to structure menus and "separate" menu items visually.
This module provides an API for adding universally unique identifiers (UUID) to Drupal objects, most notably entities.
Features in Drupal 7 version
Automatic UUID generation
UUIDs will be generated for all core entities. An API is provided for other modules to enable support for custom entities.
UUID API for entities, properties and fields
With this unified API you can load entities with entity_uuid_load() so that all supported properties and fields are made with UUID references. You can also save entities formatted this way with entity_uuid_save() (depends on Entity API).
Export entities to use as default/demo content
The integration with Features module provides the ability to export UUID enabled entities with intact dependencies and references to other entities. This functionality depends on Deploy module 7.x-2.0-alpha1 (soon to be released) and is probably the most robust way for installation profiles and distributions to provide demo content!
This module provides a suite of additional image effects that can be added to image styles. The image styles admin submodule also adds the 'duplicate', 'export' and 'import' actions to image styles administration.
This is a Mime Mail component module (for use by other modules).
It permits users to receive HTML email and can be used by other modules. The mail functionality accepts an HTML message body, mime-endcodes it and sends it.
If the HTML has embedded graphics, these graphics are MIME-encoded and included as a message attachment.
Adopts your site's style by automatically including your theme's stylesheet files in a themeable HTML message format
If the recipient's preference is available and they prefer plaintext, the HTML will be converted to plain text and sent as-is. Otherwise, the email will be sent in themeable HTML with a plaintext alternative.
Allows you to theme messages with a specific mailkey.
Converts CSS styles into inline style attributes.
Provides simple system actions and Rules actions to send HTML email with embedded images and attachments.
Note that there are some serious limitations you need to take into consideration when creating email layouts, see the Email Standard Project for more information.
The clone module allows users to make a copy of an existing item of site content (a node) and then edit that copy. The authorship is set to the current user, the menu and url aliases are reset, and the words "Clone of" are inserted into the title to remind you that you are not editing the original content.
This module provides a framework for easily creating searches on any entity known to Drupal, using any kind of search engine. For site administrators, it is a great alternative to other search solutions, since it already incorporates facetting support and the ability to use the Views module for displaying search results, filters, etc. Also, with the Apache Solr integration, a high-performance search engine is available for this module.
Developers, on the other hand, will be impressed by the large flexibility and numerous ways of extension the module provides. Hence, the growing number of additional contrib modules, providing additional functionality or helping users customize some aspects of the search process.
The prime example of a site using this module is drupal.org itself – the Search API, along with the database backend and Views, is used to generate the issue queue listings.
This module is designed to provide a way to export large amounts of data from views. It provides a display plugin that can rendered progressively in a batch. Style plugins are included that support exporting in the following types:
This module also exposes a drush command that can execute the view and save its results to a file.
Honeypot uses both the honeypot and timestamp methods of deterring spam bots from completing forms on your Drupal site (read more here). These methods are effective against many spam bots, and are not as intrusive as CAPTCHAs or other methods which punish the user [YouTube].
The module currently supports enabling for all forms on the site, or particular forms like user registration or password reset forms, webforms, contact forms, node forms, and comment forms.
