Atom Marquee

Using the Atom Marquee Module

The Atom Marquee module places a prominent image and text on the homepage of an OpenAid site.

Create a marquee node at /node/add/marquee.

The marquee will automatically display on the homepage. You may need to clear the site's cache in order to see it.

OpenAid Project

Enable the OpenAid Project feature at /admin/structure/features

The Project content type comes with the following features:

  • Country vocabulary
  • Mapping
  • Partner references
  • Related files
  • Resource references

Project Mapping

OpenAid uses OpenLayers and Mapbox to provide the mapping functionality of the site. The location of a project is set on the node edit form.

Updating OpenAid

The update process with OpenAid is the same as process as updating modules on a standard Drupal site. Note that contributed modules for OpenAid live in profiles/openaid/modules/contrib rather than the common set up sites/all/modules/contrib.

OpenAid does have regular updates, oftentimes to keep up with security releases of Drupal core and contributed modules, however, OpenAid site maintainers are encouraged to update modules (especially those with security updates) as updates become available rather than waiting for a new release of OpenAid.

Working with Embedded Media

OpenAid uses the Node Embed module to allow for the embedding of images or other media assets. This page will walk through the basics of configuring your OpenAid site to use Node Embed, but you can learn more about what Node Embed has to offer at their documentation pages.

As the name implies, anything that is a node can be embedded via Node Embed. Let's use the Image content type as an example.

Contributing to OpenAid

Like all Drupal projects, OpenAid is open source and welcomes contributions from the greater community.

To get started, grab a copy of the site by visiting the Version Control section of the OpenAid project page.

Follow the instructions on creating a repository.

Once you've cloned the repo the folder you will see the following files and folders:

OpenAid Contact

Enabling the OpenAid Contact module will provide a Contact webform. You can view the form at /contact or by bringing it up at admin/content.

Add the Contact form to a Menu

You can then add the form to the menu of your choice at /contact/edit

Customize the Form Elements

To edit the form elements on your Contact page, select the _Webform_ working tab.
