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 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. This way you can allow a site manager to change the layout of specific node pages or even choose from a list of predefined node layouts that you set up.

The Drupal 7 Nodeblock module is a simple but handy module that can be used to turn nodes into blocks on your Drupal 7 website. Essentially you pick a content type that you want to use to create new blocks, and when you create this type of content, it's now available on the block administration page. This can be really useful for you to set up client websites using this module, this way someone unfamiliar with Drupal does not have to learn how to use the standard Drupal Block administration and can instead just edit the content.
