Daily Dose of Drupal Episode #207

Taking a content type and displaying it in a Drupal View is core to any Drupal website. If you are new to views, you can check out our Drupal views video. As you venture into views you will learn hundreds of ways to manipulate content to change the way the end user is able to interact with the content. To help enhance this, you can use the Views Isotope module. This module uses the jQuery isotope library to dynamically filter views content. As the title states, it’s pretty fancy.

You ask and you shall receive. That is exactly what happened. Roman, the supporter of the Range Module, asked us to review his module. So that is what we did.

We kept things simple for this episode of the DDoD. The options element module uses Javascript to create an easy way to create radio button and checkbox options for fields on a Drupal content type. Before this module you had to add key|value for each options you wanted. Using this module the key and value is broken down into two fields making it easier to distinguish the difference.

From time to time we get a question that we feel would be beneficial to more than just the person asking. Yesterday, we had one of those questions.

Hi Shane,

I just bought your eBook today and have enjoyed some of your tutorials too.

I come from the WordPress side of development, but recently sunk my teeth into Drupal and I'm working hard and fast to get up to speed as quickly as I can, which is one reason I bought your eBook today.

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!

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.

The Problem

Style this using views and CSS. What you are looking at below is a view being displayed as a grid. This is by far the easiest way to display content in a nice looking grid view, but as you will read there is a MUCH better way.
