[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] 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] Field validation

HOT TIP: this content is flagged as highly recommended !

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] Google Analytics

An absolute must have module for any site where traffic volume matters !

[module] Flag

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] Date

An essential module, with some major improvements in the Drupal7 version.

[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] Ubercart

This is a popular module that integrates well with Drupal custom content types and fields, so you can get started quickly creating products. It has a complete store and product configuration system integrated into the main admin menu. And it talks to most of the major payment gateways.

[module] Image (Drupal7/8 core)

Does not seem to work with SVG yet, which is a great shame for the OOE graphical UML diagrams. You can add 'svg' under an image field allowed upload settings, but it is ignored.

Another "no brainer". Install it and enable it on every site.

[module] Devel

An absolute must for all serious Drupal developers !

[module] Link

No brainer; this is the web, the web uses links. Install it on every site and switch it on first.
