Welcome to the one stop Drupal blog spot! In this post we will tell you the four Drupal modules that we cannot live without. Nearly every Drupal website we build (which is a lot) incorporates these different modules. We find them easy to use, effective at their job, and a huge benefit to the overall site. Of course, there are thousands of great modules out there and we are always looking to expand our knowledge so if you have a go-to, let us know in the comments.
Looking to add some organized lists to your website? This module allows our Drupal developers to collect nodes in an arbitrarily ordered list. Imagine the possibilities! It’s endless. Looking to list the most recent blog posts? Easy. Maybe you want to list TV shows in no particular order. Well, Nodeque can help you do that! If you haven’t already, take a look at it. It’s all done with a simple drag and drop feature.
This is another module that will make your life, as a developer, easier! And isn’t that what modules are meant to do? Anyways, this one is a keeper. We use Features on all major Drupal projects. The description the Drupal.org explains it best: The features module enables the capture and management of features in Drupal. Cool! We use this module most frequently when migrating sites.
Do you like things laid out a certain way? Then this module is for you! Views allows you to sort the default front page view differently. Maybe you want to restrict the /tracker to certain posts? Well, you found the right module! There are only two examples. Honestly, views allows you to do so much I can barely scratch the surface here. Stay tuned for a full-length blog post on the benefits of views. Until then, check out the formal description on the Drupal site.
This is another module that can do a whole bunch of awesome things. Our favorite part of this module is its ability to generate dummy content. It’s really a huge help when building large and often complex sites.
