Views You need Views if You like the default front page view, but you find you want to sort it differently. You like the default taxonomy/term view, but you find you want to sort it differently; for example, alphabetically. You use /tracker, but you want to restrict it to posts of a certain type. You like the idea of the 'article' module, but it doesn't display articles the way you like. Views can do a lot more than that, but those are some of the obvious uses of Views. Views for Drupal 8 Views is in Drupal 8 Core! Recommended versions of Views! For new installs of Drupal 6, we recommend the 6.x-3.x branch. The 6.x-2.x branch of Views is in critical/security maintenance mode only. Dependencies The Drupal 7 version of Views requires the Chaos Tool Suite also known as CTools. Views' bug squad The Views' bug squad is a group of people who have dedicated a few hours a week to help provide support and fix bugs in the issue queue. Views documentation Sponsorship This project is sponsored by IO1.
Chaos tool suite (ctools) This suite is primarily a set of APIs and tools to improve the developer experience. It also contains a module called the Page Manager whose job is to manage pages. In particular it manages panel pages, but as it grows it will be able to manage far more than just Panels. For the moment, it includes the following tools: Plugins -- tools to make it easy for modules to let other modules implement plugins from .inc files.
Pathauto The Pathauto module automatically generates URL/path aliases for various kinds of content (nodes, taxonomy terms, users) without requiring the user to manually specify the path alias. This allows you to have URL aliases like /category/my-node-title instead of /node/123 . The aliases are based upon a "pattern" system that uses tokens which the administrator can change. Requirements Versions The 7.x-1.x and 6.x-2.x branches are currently accepting new feature requests and are kept in sync as much as possible. Known issues Multilingual URL alias support is still a little unstable and should be tested before used in production. Recommended modules Redirect (D7) / Path Redirect (D6) when installed Pathauto will provide a new "Update Action" in case your URLs change. Co-Maintainers Pathauto was originally written by mikeryan and maintained by Greg Knaddison (greggles) . Pledges #D8CX : I pledge that Pathauto will have a full Drupal 8 release on the day that Drupal 8 is released. Downloads
Context Context Context allows you to manage contextual conditions and reactions for different portions of your site. You can think of each context as representing a "section" of your site. For each context, you can choose the conditions that trigger this context to be active and choose different aspects of Drupal that should react to this active context. Think of conditions as a set of rules that are checked during page load to see what context is active. Any reactions that are associated with active contexts are then fired. Other included modules Context UI provides an administrative interface for managing and editing Contexts. The inline editor for 7.x The inline editor has been redone for 7.x and is activated via a "Configure Layout" contextual link on blocks that appear on the page. Dependencies Required Chaos Tools 1.7 or higher Recommended for 6.x jQuery UI in order to use the Context inline editorAdmin 2.x in order to use the Context inline editor Upgrading from Context 2.x for Drupal 6.x Thanks
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.
Transliteration Provides one-way string transliteration (romanization) and cleans file names during upload by replacing unwanted characters. Generally spoken, it takes Unicode text and tries to represent it in US-ASCII characters (universally displayable, unaccented characters) by attempting to transliterate the pronunciation expressed by the text in some other writing system to Roman letters. According to Unidecode, from which most of the transliteration data has been derived, "Russian and Greek seem to work passably. Do I need to use transliteration for uploaded files? This question can't be generally answered, rather it depends on what you want to do with user submitted file uploads. you let users upload files to your site and offer these files as download without PHP processing, and you're on Drupal 6 or later, and not using a Windows-based web server. However, whenever you want to process uploaded files on the server, you most likely need transliteration. Credits Authors: Stefan M. Current maintainer:
Rules The Rules module allows site administrators to define conditionally executed actions based on occurring events (known as reactive or ECA rules). It's a replacement with more features for the trigger module in core and the successor of the Drupal 5 workflow-ng module. Example use cases Build flexible content publishing workflows changesSend customized mails to notify your users about importantCreate custom redirections, system messages, breadcrumbs, ...Build an eCommerce store using Drupal Commerce And many more... Features Obviously, you may use reaction rules to react upon any event with custom conditions and actions.Allows functionality to be re-used via components (Drupal 6: Rule sets only).Flexible scheduling system that allows scheduling any component / action.Users can share their customizations by using the built-in import/export feature. Integrations Modules may use the Rules module's API to provide new events, conditions, actions or default rules, which can be customized by users.
ImageAPI This API is meant to be used in place of the API provided by image.inc. You probably do not need to install this module unless another module are you using requires it. It provides no new features to your Drupal site. It only provides an API other modules can leverage. Currently GD2 and ImageMagick support are distributed with ImageAPI. This module is specifically for Drupal 6 and older. Differences from Drupal core's image.inc Images are objects.Images are not written on each image operation and must be explicitly closed when processing is complete. Related Modules Internationalization Views Translate views using Internationalization. This is a work in progress and not all Views properties can be translated yet. Requires Internationalization 6.x-1.5 or newer. This module has been moved from Internationalization package so we can have different branches compatible with each of the Views versions. Use the same branch of the Views version you are using (2.x. 3.x) Roadmap Drupal 6 i18nviews 2.x The 2.x version has grown up over some time. Drupal 6 i18nviews 3.x Views 3 introduces a complete new translation layer. Drupal 7 There's a basic D7 port available now. New maintainer for i18nviews Jose Reyero decided to release i18nviews primary maintenance.Miro Dietiker of MD Systems took over maintainership for future.
