[keyword] text filter (input filter)

[module] Collapse Text

HOT TIP: this content is flagged as highly recommended !

I have an old (internal) Drupal6 site I use for tracking a software development project, including issue tracking. It often has long code listings, stack trace listings etc. that can become unwieldy and difficult to read. This module was the perfect solution. I now make nearly all code listing [collapsed] by default and it has made reading and organising this work far easier.

[module] Lightbox2

Lightbox2 is used on this site on all UML diagram image fields of the Module content type, which one can also inspect via the OOE UML gallery.

One can also (given correct order and settings of text format input filters) use it inline in any page text like this:

[module] HTML Purifier

[module] GeSHi Filter for syntax highlighting

This absolutely brilliant server-side code syntax highlighting module is quite simply a MUST HAVE for any IT Educator or anybody wanting to share their coding tips via a Drupal site. It is far more powerful and flexible than Code Filter. It also enables one to have syntax highlighted code fields by enabling a separate optional module, and there are options for automatic code line number generation.

[module] Code Filter

4

From the Code Filter handbook:

'The Code Filter is enabled on Drupal.org for input formats Filtered HTML, Full HTML, and Documentation.'

It provides coloured syntax highlighting for PHP code.

I however prefer the [node:] which handles more languages and has easy configuration of language specific tags.

[module] Insert Node [Drupal6]

0

This is an extremely powerful input filter with a huge number of options and applications, but if you just want to insert the content of one node into another Node Embed suffices, and has a Drupal7 version.

[module] Node Embed

Absolutely brilliantly simple must have module. Install it always and switch it on. Promotes Don't Repeat Yourself (DRY Principle) authoring !

The Drupal7 version includes many improvements, including options for the display mode for the inserted node (such as view_mode=teaser).

It currently however only gets 4 stars out of 5, because it suffers from a number of bugs, or at least has trouble handling some trickier cases; see ISSUE links below.

[module] Rep[lacement]Tags [Drupal6]

As far as consistent authoring is concerned, I consider this one of the handiest modules in Drupal, because it promotes the Don't Repeat Yourself (DRY Principle) pattern and helps prevent the Write Everything Twice (WET) (because "we enjoy typing") anti-pattern.

[module] Link Node

I consider the simple yet wonderful Link Node one of the most important modules in Drupal, one you would do well to install and turn on in every single Drupal site, because it promotes the Don't Repeat Yourself (DRY Principle) pattern and helps prevent the Write Everything Twice (WET) (because "we enjoy typing") anti-pattern.
