The Drupal Rules Filter Module is a simple module that makes it easy to sort through a long list of Drupal Rules. This is a module that is especially useful on those larger scale Drupal websites that rely heavily on the rules module and have many contributed Drupal modules installed.

The Password Reset Landing Page or PRLP module is honestly one of the simplest modules you have come across. The sole purpose of the module is to provide the ability for users who request a new password to be able to reset their password on the password reset landing page instead of having to do so on the user edit page.

The Smart Paging module is one of those "nice to have" modules. This module allows the ability to break content on a particular node into multiple pages. It is important to remember though that this doesn't mean you have to create multiple nodes or Drupal pages. This module works off of the same node. Neat!

By default a Drupal site has a lot of flexibility when it comes to assigning user roles and permissions. There are times however when the default flexibility is not quite enough. The Drupal Role Assign Module extends this flexibility a little by allowing more fine grained control over setting user roles.

The Drupal RoleAssign module allows you to allow other roles to assign users roles... confused yet? An example might be helpful. Assume you have the following Drupal roles on your site:

Drupal: Configuring Override Node Options Module

All the best modules are simply built, and override node options is exactly that. The purpose of this module is to give you individual control over the fields with the authoring and publishing fieldsets on Drupal nodes.

Within permissions you are able to set access control (based on role) to show or hide these fields. Some of the fields include sticky at top of page, promoted to front page, authored by and authored on.

Over the summer I was able to attend three different Drupal Camps (Drupal Corn Camp, Twin Cities Drupal Camp, and Drupal Camp Atlanta). While talking to other attendees or during my sessions, I made it a point to ask about hosting providers and what other Drupal developers, designers, and site builders were using.

The Drupal 7 File Resumable Upload Module is a great way to allow your Drupal site to upload large files. This is especially helpful if your server limits the size of files you can upload to your Drupal site.

In this video we look at the Protected Pages module for Drupal 7. This module allows for password protection on paths in Drupal. In other words, this module will prompt a visitor to a specific page to enter a password before they are able to see the content.

This is one of those modules that exists to just make this use case simple. There are a ton of other ways to accomplish this with permissions and roles in Drupal, but it is always nice to have a simple way to accomplish this task.

In this video we look at the Publication Date module. This module allows content creators to use the date in which the content on their website is published and NOT just when it is created. In other words, if you create a post a week prior to publishing it, this module will use the date in which the post goes to published. Again, this is a simple module but can be extremely helpful if you post a lot of content or have a habit of writing content days or weeks prior to publishing.

If you have ever built a site using the entity reference module, then the Entity Reference View Widget module is a module that you should know about. It isn't always necessary, but can be a lifesaver if you have a lot of referenced content that you need to sort through and select from on your Entity Reference fields. This is a good replacement for using a traditional autocomplete field for your entity reference fields..

In this lesson you will learn:

As developers we always are looking for ways to become more efficient. After all, time is money.

One of things we found that always cost us more time than needed was remembering Drush commands when building our Drupal websites. Obviously, Google will find thousands of sites with this information, but just having a sheet laying on our desks seems to provide the answer faster. Remember time is money.

In episode 174, we look at a new way to display administrative messages. In other words, absolute messages is a module that changes how status, error and warning messages are displayed. For the most part, this is a nominal improvement, but does allow for hiding and showing of messages.

In episode 173 you learn about how to make a simple countdown timer using the jQuery Countdown Timer module. This module, which uses jQuery, allows you to specify an end date which the countdown timer will countdown to. The countdown timer is available as a block and can be placed in any region that you desire for your website. Also, at this recording their was a minor bug that didn't allow for countdown dates to extend beyond 100 days (wouldn't display the third digit).

The Entity Reference module not only allows you to reference entities within your Drupal site, it also allows you to do so using a custom created entity reference view. This allows you to leverage the power of the views module to control how the entity reference selection field is displayed.
