[module] Draggable Views

Very handy little module (except for lack of integration with Views Bulk Operations (VBO), a very popular request, see external links below).

[module] Rules Link

[module] Views Bulk Operations (VBO)

HOT TIP: this content is flagged as highly recommended !

Absolutely marvellous, an incredible time-saver, and almost as lovely as Views itself; I install it and switch it on on nearly every site, it's a "No brainer", although the module is definitely quite brainy ! In addition to the external links here, there is a wealth of links to useful resources such screencasts on the project site.

[module] Views Calc

TODO: this content is incomplete, unfinished, or under construction.

On my list of interesting modules to try.

[module] Display Suite

5

Only the Drupal7 7.x-2.x branch is assessed here.

The gist of the Display Suite (DS) is that you can change the layout (across all instances) of a chosen node content type or other entity type (like user, comment, taxonomy term, vocabulary) without having to use PHP theme template overrides.

For a demo please visit: Display Suite demo

There is some overlap with Panels, but in typical basic usage the major differences are that:

[module] Simplenews

5

Super module, does exactly as it says. For best results you need to get your hands dirty with CSS and/or the them template overrides, and check (using test mode) the newsletter on many email clients; composing for the web is not quite the same as composing for a emailed newsletter.

For an example Simplenews newsletter please visit: Seminar: "The GreenDesk® for Green Star® Office web application and the GreenBase® resources web portal".

[module] Field Collection Views

Super, gives fine control over the display of field collection items in views results.

Used on this site for example in the more compact OOE UML diagrams table view to display selected sub-fields from the metadata of the UML Diagram field collection.

[module] Better Exposed Filters

HOT TIP: this content is flagged as highly recommended !
5

Very handy little module, does indeed make exposed filters in views query reports easier in many cases. Is used for example on this site in the OOE: UML filter view.


From the README.TXT:

'In Views 3.x, the BEF configuration options have been moved to the Exposed Form dialog. Set the "Exposed form style" to "Better Exposed Filters" and make your configuration changes in the resulting dialog. Each filter is listed based on the label given in the exposed filter dialog.'

[module] Webform

HOT TIP: this content is flagged as highly recommended !

Super ! And has 1,747,939 million downloads as of Feb 2014. One of the most useful modules in Drupal.

[module] Entity API

4

The move from the Drupal6 terminology 'content types' and CCK contruction kit to 'Entity' and 'Field' is more in line with Java Persistence API (JPA) database terminology and most other database persistence frameworks. This unifies the different sub-types like Node, User, etc under a universal base type Entity, which is a very good thing.

[module] Flag

HOT TIP: this content is flagged as highly recommended !
5

One of my all-time favourite modules, I install it on every site. It enables one to: impose a workflow on content; mark and track nodes has having errors; mark content as archival or obsolete; create TODO lists. The possibilities are nearly endless.

Best of all, it integrates with Views, so you can easily list nodes flagged by a given flag. Very handy.

[module] Views PHP

TODO: this content is incomplete, unfinished, or under construction.

There is a lot of overlap with Computed Field (which is easier if your focus is on generating content for fields, rather than Views support).

[module] Computed Field

HOT TIP: this content is flagged as highly recommended !
5

Very, very handy.

Can also be used to create "static" text fields, and thus helps promote Don't Repeat Yourself (DRY Principle) content authoring !

[module] Views Slideshow

HOT TIP: this content is flagged as highly recommended !
5

Perhaps the best known of the many slideshow/rotator modules.

See an example of 2 ViewsSlideshows running in parallel on one page at the Webel IT Australia: Drupal services zone, showing a portfolio of Drupal sites with rotating screenshots and descriptions.

[module] Insert View

TODO: this content is incomplete, unfinished, or under construction.
HOT TIP: this content is flagged as highly recommended !

Very useful little module, used for example on this site to insert the reusable notes view into an introduction page on reusable notes for UML modelling policies and conventions.

[module] Views

HOT TIP: this content is flagged as highly recommended !

Quite simply, the most important contributed module in Drupal6/7 !

The Views module moves into core for Drupal8.
