[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] Draggable Views

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

It's important to note that:

You may use the Rules module or core's Trigger module to react to transitions and states.

[module] Features Extra

A very handy extension to Features, and becoming more robust. I've already found it useful on a few client's sites. I particularly like the ability to export Blocks.

[module] Features

Q: Do I need Features if I am developing a Drupal site for my local soccer club's social calendar ?
A: Probably not.

Q: Do I need Features if I am a professional Drupal web developer/consultant ?
A: You need to take it to bed and sleep with it. Then have dreams or nightmares about it, depending on how lucky you are when you use it on a real project.

Super (when it works).

To get the dependency version right this worked:
# drush dl simplehtmldom-7.x-1.12
# drush en simplehtmldom
# drush en devel_themer

The last step will download devel_themer and will see the simplehtmldom as forced above. Otherwise it will (at the time of writing) download simplehtmldom 7.x-2.1, which fails.

[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] Apache Solr (Search Integration)

0

A review for the Drupal7 version is pending

This module was used by Webel IT Australia on a major Drupal6 site to implement in-document search for the Systems Engineering Goldminefor training organisation Project Performance International.

Because it requires the Solr server process to be running (in Java) this module is only of use on dedicated servers or virtual private servers, not on basic shared web hosting accounts.

[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] Rules

Qs and As

Q: I am developing a simple Drupal7 community web site for sharing my favourite recipes; do I need Rules ?
A: Probably not.


Q: I am professional Drupal7 developer/consultant; do I need to understand Rules and how to create new Event-Condition-Action (ECA) instances via the Rules interface and Rules elements using the Rules API in code ?
A: Definitely.

[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] Panels

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.

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