A suite of modules containing fun for module developers and themers ... Devel Helper functions for Drupal developers and inquisitive admins. This module can print a summary of all database queries for each page request at the bottom of each page. The summary includes how many times each query was executed on a page (shouldn't run same query multiple times), and how long each query took (short is good - use cache for complex queries).Also a dprint_r($array) function is provided, which pretty prints arrays. Generate content Accelerate development of your site or module by quickly generating nodes, comments, terms, users, and more. Devel Node Access (DNA) View the node access entries for the node(s) that are shown on a page.

Token Tokens are small bits of text that can be placed into larger documents via simple placeholders, like %site-name or [user]. The Token module provides a central API for modules to use these tokens, and expose their own token values. Note that Token module doesn't provide any visible functions to the user on its own, it just provides token handling services for other modules. For Drupal 6, the Token module provides a "Token Actions" module which can be enabled separately. This provides several "actions" for the Drupal core Actions/Trigger modules to use that take advantage of the Token replacement functionality. Modules that use the Token module and provide tokens via the API include Organic Groups, Pathauto, Comment Notify, and Commerce. Pledges #D7CX: The basic token API is now a part of Drupal 7! #D7AX - I pledge to make this module as accessible as it can be.

Panels An Overview of Panels The Panels module allows a site administrator to create customized layouts for multiple uses. At its core it is a drag and drop content manager that lets you visually design a layout and place content within that layout. Integration with other systems allows you to create nodes that use this, landing pages that use this, and even override system pages such as taxonomy and the node page so that you can customize the layout of your site with very fine grained permissions. Integration with CTools module Panels 3 utilizes the CTools' system of "context" so that the content you place on the page can be aware of what is being displayed. Panels uses Contexts - What are they? In a Panel, you can create contexts, which represent the objects being displayed. In addition, these contexts can be checked for information and use that not only to make content available to be displayed, but to choose which layout to display! Panels can also be used for items smaller than pages.

Megamenu Notes: This module is in beta and under active development. Use on production sites at your own risk, and use caution when upgrading.7.x-2.x is the active development branch--new features go here6.x and 7.x-1.x branches are now bugfix only. Overview Mega menus are a type of drop-down, which seeks to overcome some of the usability drawbacks to traditional style drop-downs. The information architecture of your navigation is made clearer and is visible all at onceThe amount of clicking, searching, and navigating is reduced This module allows you to build mega menus by leveraging jQuery and the existing Drupal menu system. Shown to the right is an example of a mega menu taken from What's the deal with Megas? What does this module do? This module takes any existing Drupal menu and produces the markup for a megamenu. Features Who is this module for? Who is using this module? Here are a few examples of what people are doing with this module. How can I contribute? Update notes: 7.x-2.x

Migrate The migrate module provides a flexible framework for migrating content into Drupal from other sources (e.g., when converting a web site from another CMS to Drupal). Out-of-the-box, support for creating core Drupal objects such as nodes, users, files, terms, and comments are included - it can easily be extended for migrating other kinds of content. Content is imported and rolled back using a bundled web interface (Migrate UI module) or included Drush commands (strongly recommended). Status I'm afraid I've been very busy with project work and the Migrate in 8 effort and haven't been able to put Migrate 2.6 to bed yet. I am starting to catch up on the issue queue, aiming to answer a few issues at a time, a few times a week, prioritizing bugs>support requests>tasks/feature requests. Migrate 2.6 Release Candidate 1 is available. The most significant changes in Migrate 2.6: For a more complete list of changes, see the issues tagged as Migrate 2.6.

References This project provides D7 versions of the 'node_reference' and 'user_reference' field types, that were part of the CCK package in D6, at functional parity with the D6 counterparts. See for details. Note for users upgrading from References 7.x-2.0-beta3 There were a couple changes in the way 'References' views are handled ("referenceable nodes/users defined by a view"), which might require double-checking those existing on your site: The 'label' (node title or user name) is no longer automatically added if not included in the view. Note for users upgrading from CCK D6 The References project integrates with the content_migrate module present in CCK 7.x-2.x-dev to allow the migration of field definitions and field values from D6 nodereference and userreference fields.

SimpleMenu Description This module creates a menu bar that is displayed at the top of every page. The menu bar is fixed in place and uses jQuery to position the bar, along with handling menu effects and adding IE compatibility. Very useful for themes that don't have a good place to put the navigation menu (although it can be used with any menu.) Documentation direct links SimpleMenu settings SimpleMenu Documentation & Known Issues I removed the upgrade information as it shouldn't matter as much now. Related Modules (if you have a module that you think is related, submit an issue and I will add it here) Cute Menu — Cute Menu is also a drop down featured menu. Mini-features modules — gives you some extra features not otherwise found in any module because those are so... mini!

stickynote | - (Private Browsing) This module is meant to be a utility module for content admins. It could be useful for content authors/admins to communicate with one another about their content or keep a todo list on pages, thus the name stickynote. How it works This module simply creates a block with the ability to add, delete, and edit notes (ajaxified). Notes are stored on a per path basis and the block can be made visible to certain roles/paths etc... like any other block. Demo Try out the stickynote module now at the demo site. Differences from sticky_notes module: This module creates a block and allows adding/editing/deleting in the block rather than using the modal frame api and jquery ui to display the note. Please see the sticky_notes module (d6 only) to decide which solution meets your needs as they are very different approaches. Future plans: Drupal 8 can do this in core! Views + Content + Edit = Stickynotes! Note: A D6 Backport is not planned. Security Update:

CCK Blocks Field Visibility and Display Modes: Since version 6.x-1.1 , the module does not hide the field in the node's content area anymore. You can do that for yourself in the display settings for your content type. CCK blocks will define a display mode named "CCK Blocks", which you can use to configure the display of fields when they are appearing as blocks. This allows you show the field both in the node's content area and in the CCK block, with different display settings. IMPORTANT: Before any of your CCK blocks will show up, you need to set the field in question to be visible in the CCK blocks display mode! Performance and Caching: Since many users have experienced tremendous problems when block caching is activated (#400858: CCK Blocks appears to be incompatible with block caching), we decided to disable block caching for cck blocks. If you wish to have block caching, please use the Block Cache Alter module to activate block caching for individual cck blocks. Tokens [node:field_yourfieldname] 1.

Nice Menus Nice Menus enables drop-down/right/left expandable menus. It uses only CSS for most browsers, with minimal Javascript for IE6. (Version 2 uses the Superfish jQuery plugin for all browsers, with an option to disable JS, and falls back to CSS-only for browsers that can handle it.) Three styles/types of menus are currently possible: horizontal, menus drop down; vertical, menus fly to the left; vertical, menus fly to the right. Nice Menus creates blocks that may be associated with any existing site menu which can be placed wherever normal blocks can be placed in a theme. The module comes with a simple, generic color scheme which can be fully overridden either by adding the override CSS to the theme's normal stylesheet or by creating a Nice Menus CSS file and telling Nice Menus to use that rather than its own default one through the global theme configuration. Version 2 The 6.x-2.x version has many new features and some rewriting.
