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.
This suite is primarily a set of APIs and tools to improve the developer experience. It also contains a module called the Page Manager whose job is to manage pages. In particular it manages panel pages, but as it grows it will be able to manage far more than just Panels.
For the moment, it includes the following tools:
Plugins -- tools to make it easy for modules to let other modules implement plugins from .inc files.
Exportables -- tools to make it easier for modules to have objects that live in database or live in code, such as 'default views'.
AJAX responder -- tools to make it easier for the server to handle AJAX requests and tell the client what to do with them.
Form tools -- tools to make it easier for forms to deal with AJAX.
Object caching -- tool to make it easier to edit an object across multiple page requests and cache the editing work.
Contexts -- the notion of wrapping objects in a unified wrapper and providing an API to create and accept these contexts as input.
Modal dialog -- tool to make it simple to put a form in a modal dialog.
Dependent -- a simple form widget to make form items appear and disappear based upon the selections in another item.
Content -- pluggable content types used as panes in Panels and other modules like Dashboard.
Provides a theme-independent administration interface (aka. navigation, back-end). It's a helper for novice users coming from other CMS, a time-saver for site administrators, and useful for developers and site builders.
Administrative links are displayed in a CSS/JS-based menu at the top on all pages of your site. It not only contains regular menu items — tasks and actions are also included, enabling fast access to any administrative resource your Drupal site provides.
Allows the use of client-side editors to edit content. It simplifies the installation and integration of the editor of your choice. This module replaces all other editor integration modules. No other Drupal module is required.
The Wysiwyg module supports any kind of client-side editor including HTML editors (a.k.a. WYSIWYG), pseudo-editors (buttons to insert markup into a textarea), or even Flash-based applications. The editor library must be downloaded separately. Various editors are supported (see below).
The Wysiwyg module also provides an abstraction layer for other Drupal modules to integrate with any editor. This means that other Drupal modules can expose content-editing functionality, regardless of which editor you have installed.
This module will allow Drupal to replace textarea fields with the CKEditor - a visual HTML editor, usually called a WYSIWYG editor. This HTML text editor brings many of the powerful WYSIWYG editing functions of known desktop editors like Word to the web. It's very fast and doesn't require any kind of installation on the client computer.
What is CKEditor?
CKEditor is the far superior successor of FCKeditor. The editor has been rebranded and completely rewritten. It is now much faster (the code has been optimized), loads faster (the number of files has been reduced, so the browser will perform less HTTP requests) and developers friendly.
Back up and restore your Drupal MySQL database, code, and files or migrate a site between environments. Backup and Migrate supports gzip, bzip and zip compression as well as automatic scheduled backups.
With Backup and Migrate you can dump some or all of your database tables to a file download or save to a file on the server or offsite, and to restore from an uploaded or previously saved database dump. You can choose which tables and what data to backup and cache data is excluded by default.
The modules list page can become quite big when dealing with a fairly large site or even just a dev site meant for testing new and various modules being considered. What this module aims to accomplish is the ability to quickly find the module you are looking for without having to rely on the browsers search feature which more times than not shows you the module name in the 'Required by' or 'Depends on' sections of the various modules or even some other location on the page like a menu item.
The features module enables the capture and management of features in Drupal. A feature is a collection of Drupal entities which taken together satisfy a certain use-case.
Features provides a UI and API for taking different site building components from modules with exportables and bundling them together in a single feature module. A feature module is like any other Drupal module except that it declares its components (e.g. views, contexts, CCK fields, etc.) in its .info file so that it can be checked, updated, or reverted programmatically.
Checks the current URL for an alias and does a 301 redirect to it if it is not being used.
Checks the current URL for a trailing slash, removes it if present and repeats check 1 with the new request.
Checks if the current URL is the same as the site_frontpage and redirects to the frontpage if there is a match.
Checks if the Clean URLs feature is enabled and then checks the current URL is being accessed using the clean method rather than the 'unclean' method.
Checks access to the URL. If the user does not have access to the path, then no redirects are done. This helps avoid exposing private aliased node's.
Make sure the case of the URL being accessed is the same as the one set by the author/administrator. For example, if you set the alias "articles/cake-making" to node/123, then the user can access the alias with any combination of case.
Most of the above options are configurable in the settings page. In Drupal 5 you can access this after enabling the globalredirect_admin module. In Drupal 6, the settings page is bundled into the module.
The advanced help module allows module developers to store their help outside the module system, in pure .html files. The 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).
This module assists with the site/domain ownership authentication/verification for search engines. There are two types of verification methods supported: adding meta tags, or uploading a specific file. If you are provided with a file to upload, this module makes it easy because you can upload the file in the module's interface and the proper filename and file contents will be saved and used in the authentication process.
This module is useful for the following search engine verifications:
The Masquerade module allows site administrators (or anyone with enough permissions) to switch users and surf the site as that user (no password required). That person can switch back to their own user account at any time.
This is helpful for site developers when trying to determine what a client, logged in as themselves, might see when logged into the site.
Linkit provides an easy interface for internal and external linking with editors and fields by using an autocomplete field. Linkit links to nodes, users, managed files, terms and have basic support for all entities by default.
Linkit has three major advantages over traditional linking
The user does not have to copy or remember a URL.
It is a sustainable solution for internal linking.
It has a user friendy UI.
Basic support for all entities.
Token support (for better descriptions on search results in Linkit).
Provides a link button, similar to the ordinary link button in most editors.
Can be attached to fields.
The button opens a dialog with an autocomplete field for searching content.
This module provides a powerful interface for managing taxonomies. A vocabulary gets displayed in a dynamic tree view, where parent terms can be expanded to list their nested child terms or can be collapsed.
The Taxonomy Manager has following operations and key features:
mass adding of new terms
moving of terms in hierarchies
merging of terms (using the Term merge module in 7.x)
fast weight changing with up and down arrows (and AJAX saving)
AJAX powered term editing form
simple search interface
CSV Export of terms
i18n support for multilingual vocabularies (per language terms)
Double Tree interface for moving terms in hierarchies, adding new translations and switching terms between different vocabularies
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.
The Drupal SEO Checklist uses Drupal SEO best practices to check your website for proper search engine optimization. It eliminates guesswork by creating a functional to-do list of modules and tasks that remain. Updated regularly with the latest techniques, it makes on-page Drupal search engine optimization hassle-free.
It breaks the tasks down into functional needs like Title Tags, Paths, Content and many more. Next to each task is a link to download the module from D.o and a link to the proper admin screen of your website so that you can configure the settings perfectly.
Drupal SEO Checklist also keeps track of what has already been done. It places a date and time stamp next to each item (when you click save). That provides a simple report that you can share with others showing what's been done.
You need Drupal SEO Checklist if
You know SEO basics pretty well
You work on a lot of different websites and need help keeping track of what you've done on each
You know how to properly configure modules for SEO needs
You are a list-maker! Or, you simply enjoy checking things off when they're done.
Delta allows you, via the Context module to make duplicates of your theme settings for any context on your site. This gives you the ability for alternative layouts as a reaction in Context... </awesomesauce>
