Hello, I am a senior at my university and have taken on a rather large research/web development project for the Chemistry department. Let me start off by saying that I have a little bit of HTML/CSS/JS experience and 0 Drupal experience.
We currently have a database of information about certain types of elements and how they react to water and light. I won't go into great detail, but the a typical entry in the database contains a unique ID number, list of elements used on the plate, and a list of floating-point values.
We are beginning the process of redesigning our current site and we are looking for a CMS that provides tools to consume RESTful web services data well. I am not looking to produce REST information for consumption inside drupal. Are any of you consuming RESTful information on your site? Does Drupal provide the tools to consume it, or did you have to write custom code to gather the information?
So I am planning to build a website wherein people can submit their information via a registration form. After users have paid for the registration, they will be given a username and password for them to be able to login to the site.
The purpose of people being able to login to the site is only for them to check the correctness of the information they submitted during the registration and submit necessary changes if they find something erroneous.
Any suggestions on how to implement this using Drupal?
Before I ask my questions, I wanted to let you know that I was a Drupal developer and contrubuted to modules. But it was over 5 years ago since I have done anything with Drupal, so I feel very out-of-date.
For an Intranet site I've the requirements, that should develop a knowledge communication portal. That means that the site should be structured with an hierarchy over 5 levels to group the topics. Each topic should be a page which is reachable over the navigation or via search.
