First Steps Basic Product Reviews

Before we get started, log in to the site with the username admin and password oreilly if you are using the installation profile. We'll get started with a few things that we are going to need.

One thing we will need is a new content type for the product reviews. Based on the Super Duper Chefs requirements, we'll need the following for each review:

• A Pros field and a Cons field to list quick summaries of each product's strengths and weaknesses

• An Amazon Product field to hold detailed product information

• A Rating field, so that visitors can quickly find the cream of the crop

• A Field Group that combines the rating, as well as the pros and cons, for a more attractive presentation

• Comments so that visitors can weigh in with their own opinions

We'll start by creating the base content type and adding the simplest pieces: the basic text fields needed for the Pros and Cons, grouping those fields together, and allowing comments:

1. First, go to AdministersSite buildings-Modules (admin/build/modules) and enable the following modules:


2. Next, go to AdministersContent managements-Content types (admin/content/ types) and add a new content type called "Product review," using the settings indicated in Table 4-1.
