[module] OOE = Object Oriented Examples = One Of Each

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

The OOE module is the primary tutorial module for this demo site.

[module] Draggable Views

4

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

[module] Nodequeue

4

Node queue used out-of-the-box does what it is intended to do very well, but that is not IMHO where it's real power sits; the best part of it is when using the 'API that allows other modules to define smart queues' such as for taxonomy smartqueues.

[module] Node clone tab

CREDITS

The Flag Plus module is developed by Webel IT Australia, specialists in PHP-driven Drupal CMS web engineering, UML, SysML, Java and XML. In addition to using Drupal CMS for developing clients' web sites, Webel has used Drupal CMS for many years to develop educational web sites promoting graphical software engineering with Unified Modeling Language (UML) and graphical systems engineering with Systems Modeling Language (SysML):

[module] Context

4
This module review page serves as its own demo page. The context in this case is that the node type is 'module', and that the path is 'node/2288', in which case the reaction is to hide many of the theme's regions (including the right sidebar), and to include the 'Powered by Drupal' block and the 'Contributed module demos' menu block in the theme's 'featured' region (above this content area).

Move to any other page and you should see the theme layout return to normal.

[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

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

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] Field group

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

I consider this one of the most useful contributed modules in Drupal7. It's essential for getting control over display/screen real estate and the user experience (UX) when dealing with rich/complex structured data and content. I use it on every single Drupal site I've ever developed.

[module] Field collection

5

Absolutely super little module, especially when also used in combination with Field Collection Views.

Example

It is for example used on this site for the OOE tutorial module UML diagrams. Each UML diagram is a collection of some metadata about the image and the UML diagram image, and a UML content type node can have more than one UML diagram. See for example Demo.

[module] Lightbox2

4

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] Panels

HOT TIP: this content is flagged as highly recommended !
5
TIP: when using Panels, always also turn on the Page manager
module within the Chaos tool suite (ctools).

Panels is massively powerful (although I do miss some of the simplicity of Composite Layout [Drupal6], which I used gladly on some Drupal6 sites). Panels is now far more stable that in the first years of Drupal7, and will clearly likely be supported at high priority in future versions of Drupal.

[module] Media: YouTube

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

I am not currently using this module on this site, as one can use MediaFront with YouTube easily. Example: Video: YouTube example: The Drancing accelerometer music system: PureData/GEM + Wii Remote version {MediaFront}.

However, currently there is a problem inserting MediaFront videos into pages using Node Embed text filters (ISSUE: TEST: Node Embed fails with MediaElement and MediaFront), so this promise for Media: YouTube makes it attractive:

[module] Media

0
I am not currently using this module on this site.

For most of my video needs either MediaFront or Video: Demonstration of NetBeans IDE prompting on an OOE IMenuItem encapsulation of a Drupal menu item in object-oriented PHP {MediaElement} suffice.

[module] Composite Layout [Drupal6]

OBSOLETE: this content has been flagged as obsolete (out-of-date).

I made good of this excellent little module on many Drupal6 sites:

[module] MediaFront

4

If you just want to play a video in HTML5 across many devices, this module is massively more complex to setup and use than MediaElement, although it does come with comprehensive documentation, and it has an enormous range of options, including a very flexible custom presets system. Presets have a nice option to NOT show a player when there is no media (which is very useful if one is combining many different media fields in one content type).

[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] Field validation

HOT TIP: this content is flagged as highly recommended !
0

The essential module for serious data entry control ! Although there are lots of other options for validation, and plenty of out-of-the-box validation solutions (as well as field type modules like Link that already validate for you) you had better be on top of regular expressions to get the most out of this for complex cases.

To get a quick start watch this video: Drupal Field Validation using Regular Expressions.

[module] Front page

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

I haven't tried the Drupal7 version of this module, but when I tried to combine front 6.x-2.0-rc1 with Node Embed - noting that it is supposed to work with whatever input filter (text format) once chooses, I got a complete mess. So for now I am rating it down. I have not yet reported my problems as issues on Drupal.org.

The basic idea is good.

[module] Node clone

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

Brilliant ! Install it on every single site. And despite the caveats about field cloning, I've found it mostly very reliable.

[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] Page Title

HOT TIP: this content is flagged as highly recommended !
4

Very handy little module that enables one to include dynamic/parametric content into the page title that appears at the top of the browser bar. I have used this on a number of client's sites to achieve the desired presence where the default Drupal page title did not quite please.

[module] Token

0

[module] Submitted By

4

A handy little module that can (often) save you the trouble of having to fiddle with the 'submitted by' metadata in a theme's node template.

If it isn't enough, see How to Control/Modify Display Settings (Author and Date Information) on Posts.

[module] Node Convert

HOT TIP: this content is flagged as highly recommended !
4

Super module, a life-saver for many situations.

However, the conversions for Drupal7 with the core Entity/Field system are not quite stable yet, expect some information loss sometimes.

[module] Cache Expiration

STUB: this content is flagged as a placeholder only, with minimal content.

[module] Boost

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

If you have a large amount of anonymous traffic to your site this module can definitely help reduce load, especially on shared servers. Best used where content is not changing rapidly.

[module] HTML Purifier

5

[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).
