There are many different ways to host a Drupal website. These ways each have their pros and cons depending on your specific website needs. In this article I will break down Drupal hosting into three major categories: Drupal specific hosting, Cloud/VPS Hosting, and shared hosting. There are probably arguments for other categories and some possible overlap, however it's a good starting point when beginning to look for a Drupal hosting provider.

The Drupal 7 Node Expire module allows you to use the power of the Rules module to perform actions on nodes at a specific point in time (when the node "expires"). This is useful for things such as unpublishing your content after a certain amount of time, or removing your content from the front page after it's been published for a week. You can also create rules actions to send an email at a specific time to serve as a reminder to do something related to a node on your Drupal site.

There are times when you want to programmatically embed a node display in a block or panel pane. You can do this by creating a block. You might try to use the node_view function to display the node. Doing so in a module might look something like this:
/**
 * Implements hook_block_info().
 */

The Drupal 7 Entity View Modes Module allows you to define custom view modes for your entities. A view mode allows you to configure which fields on your entity you want to display. For example, Drupal by default has a Teaser view mode that you can set up to display different fields from your Full Content view mode. This module will allow you to add your own view modes on top of the ones Drupal gives you by default.

In this lesson you will learn:

The Drupal 7 Panelizer Module allows you to panelize (or use panels) for any entity type on your Drupal 7 site. This allows you to change the layout of a node page, user page, or any other type of entity that you can think of. Although it's a little more complicated to set up, the Panelizer module allows you to set up a slimmed down panels interface for other site managers to use.

I recently ran across a problem of needing multiple Drupal Commerce add to cart buttons on a single page. Instead of trying to add a second add to cart form, I decided it would be easiest to create a custom link that could then be used to add products to the cart. This is useful if you need to create multiple add to cart links on the same page, or if you just need to create custom add to cart links to place in other areas of your Drupal Commerce website.

If you are familiar with me or with Codekarate.com, you know that one of the core goals is to help Drupal developers, designers, and site builders learn and improve their Drupal skills. Another one of my goals is to work to improve Drupal and the entire Drupal ecosystem. There is no better way to do that then to start getting more people involved with Drupal at a younger age.
