Roles, Permissions and Project Wrap Up

This entry is part 35 of 37 in the series NA Service Body Site with Drupal 7

In this cast I create a user role for a content creator and assign some permissions.

Wrap Up

I have decided not to do a database migration with the cbana.org site though I probably will with tbrna.org when I get to it. There are too many things that I want to change about cbana that the current data is not going to be practical to make a node for node transfer. I am going to copy and paste what I want and create new content for what is lacking. As I input this content I will try to create some “content creation” and “site management” videos that you can use to train your servants. I will try to keep them simple and to the point so that they can be used in all, or at least most, Drupal NA sites. Stay tuned.

This is the last video in the series. I hope that I have shared enough to get some web servants up and running in the wonderful world of Drupal site creation. And of course, you can download the features from the Bitbucket repository.

What we have done here is created a very basic site. Drupal is a prime platform for extensibility so as you get things up and comfortable with the workings and modular architecture you will find that you have no limit to what you can do with your site. Below is a list of modules that you may find helpful in site development and design.

For search engine optimization install the SEO Checklist and follow the suggestions in the list.

To display your events differently, Calendar is the bees knees. Many options.

If you are going to do content moderation Workbench is very helpful. I used Workbench on another site.

Another great module for helping to quickly create content is Node Clone. Though there are a lot of Views enhancement modules out there, you really shouldn’t miss Views Bulk Operations especially if you have a use case where you need to expose views fields in Rules.

To aid content creators, WYSIWYG, IMCE and the match the two, IMCE Wysiwyg bridge.

Though there are a lot of modules out there to twist the display without theming, I have enjoyed Display Suite and I have heard much good stuff about Panels.

I am sure this list will grow as I think out more cool stuff.
