Sample Drupal Page

Once you are done making modifications, click create content in the navigation block on the left-hand side and then click blog entry. Once the blog page has been brought up, simply add some content, whatever you want, and click Preview to see how it will turn out, and if you are happy, click Submit. If you now log out, you will be faced with your new default page. Let's take a brief look over it to discuss some of the main features When someone first arrives at your site, as it stands at the...

Content Options

When creating new content, we have the Input format section presented as follows (if the Input format link is minimized, click on it to bring up the full version) Allowed HTML tags < a> < em> < strong> < cite> < code> < ul> < ol> < li> < dl> < dt> < dd> Lines and paragraphs break automatically. Vou may post PHP code, Vou should include < php > tags. Lines and paragraphs break automatically. More information about formatting options By default, the...

Scrolling News Ticker

This is a nice feature of many sites that attempt to provide up-to-date information for their users. If you need to present several bits of information at once, then a dynamic news ticker could be just the thing. With a bit of work you can even integrate the news ticker with an RSS feed to present breaking news from other sites without having to do any work in creating content yourself. We'll keep it simple and create a scrolling news ticker across the top of each page on the site. The ticker...

Give me a break

Hi There This text should be broken up nicely. For example This was written on a new line So was this But everything got bunched up The PHP evaluator simply causes posts to be sent for PHP processing, so that any code that falls between the PHP delimiters < php and > gets executed properly. This should not be enabled for anyone other than yourself or a highly trusted administrator who needs it to complete his or her work. There is, however, no other work to be done for either of these...

Adding Google Ads to Your Content

There is also a method of inserting ads directly into your content. For example, if you wanted to show an ad within content, you would first need to enable the Adsense filter, by navigating to input formats under administer and modifying a current input format or creating a new one entirely. For example, the Adsense filter was enabled on the Full HTML input format as follows Substitutes an adsense special tag with an ad, r HTML filter Allows you to restrict if users can post HTML and which tags...

Daves picture

Then you will need to ensure that you set the correct upload module permissions on the access control page, as follows Remember that since the Forum Administrator user automatically receives all the permissions of the authenticated user, it is not necessary to enable the view uploaded files permission for the Forum Administrator as this would be redundant and would make the purpose of your user less clear. Allowing users to incorporate pictures into a site is a good way for people to be able to...

T Input format

Allowed HTML tags < a> < em> < strong> < cite> < code> < ul> < ol> < li> < dl> < dt> < dd> Lines and paragraphs break automatically. Vou may post PHP code. Vou should include < php > tags, Lines and paragraphs break automatically. As you can see I have the default option of Filtered HTML that allows me to enter some HTML code, and no PHP code. Why would they have several options like this , you might ask. We will discuss the reasons for this in...

Poormanscron

It should come as no surprise that there is a contribution that can make life even easier. Poormanscron is a contributed module that does away with the need to set the crontab or a scheduled task entirely. It works by checking whether the cron script has been run in the last unit of time whatever you have set this to be by default it is every hour each time a web page is browsed. If it finds that there is a cron run due, it will cause this to happen after the page has been served so that the...

How Drupals Interface Works

Knowing a bit about the theory behind creating an appealing site is one thing applying this knowledge within the context of a Drupal site is another thing entirely. Because of this it is important that we take some time to understand exactly how everything is tied together. You have already seen that HTML and PHP can and do form part of a site's interface, but many of you will have noticed the themes link under the administer menu item and wondered what all that is about. Further, some of you...
