Drupal is build to be modular in nature. Drupal's core functionality is provided by a core set of modules. Its functionality can be extended by the use of user contributed modules and custom modules. Currently Drupal has a huge selection of user contributed modules. User contributed modules which were found to be indispensable were later moved to the core. Have a look at some of the Top 5 Drupal modules which have become almost indispensable while using Drupal. Still not sure about what modules to start with for your Drupal site? - We can provide a wide range of professional Drupal services to help you build your Drupal site. Please get in touch with us to know more.

Views

Views is undoubtedly the most popular Drupal module of all time. Indeed most of the power of Drupal comes from the correct management of Views. Views is simply a smart query builder, which when given sufficient information can build the relevant query and execute it to produce the desired results. Views gives Drupal an enormous amount of flexibility and functionality in generating lists and tables of the relevant content. Due to its popularity there is even a small micro movement in the Drupal community to make Views a part of the Drupal core.

Content Construction Kit (CCK)

The second contender for the Top 5 Drupal modules is the Content Construction Kit commonly referred to as CCK. CCK allows users to add custom fields to nodes using a web browser. CCK has now been moved to the Drupal core from Drupal versions 7 onwards and is presently know as Fields.

Token

Token is a very important Drupal module. Tokens in the Drupal world are small bits of text that can be placed into large documents via placeholders. Different modules can use these tokens via a central token API and expose their own token values. Tokens was a separate module in Drupal 6. Now due to is usefulness most of the functionality has been moved to the Drupal core from Drupal version 7 onwards.

Pathauto

Pathauto is yet another useful module that has enabled it to be placed in the Drupal Top 5. Pathauto automatically generates URL aliases for different types of content without manual intervention. Pathauto does this using a pattern system that utilizes the token module. Pathauto also gives the admin options to change the pattern system so as to customize the url.

Wysiwyg

The next contender on the list is Drupal Wysiwyg. Wysywig allows the use of client-side editors to edit content. It is designed to simplify the integration of an editor which could either be an HTML editor, a pseudo editor or even a Flash based editor to a Drupal website. Wysiwyg provides an abstraction layer for various other Drupal modules to expose content editing functionality.

Administration Menu

Drupal Administration Menu or commonly known as 'Admin Menu is the final contender on our list. The Drupal Admin Menu provides an administration interface that is independent of the theme used. It is mainly intended for novice users coming from other CMSes and it is also a really valuable time saver for administrators and developers by enabling them to access all the relevant links from a single point of access without the need to load any pages.

Search for stumblethis_button and you should be able to see the code for the image and the URL. Then you should be able to troubleshoot from there.

Most webmasters do not realize this, but a lot of the content on lot of websites can be accessed from multiple URLs. A simple example would be where www.example.com and example.com leads to the same page. This is a fatal mistake in Search Engine Optimization and search engines penalize you for duplicate content. The correct configuration would be where the above two urls will lead you to the same page but example.com will redirect you to www.example.com with a 301 (Moved permanently) status which will not result in search engines penalizing the page. It is very easy to configure 301 redirects using Apache .htaccess file and the process is the same for a Drupal installation also.

I'm trying to make example.com show as www.example.com, and I'm running into difficulties. I'm on Apache 2.0 and using the following lines in my httpd.conf file: RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^xxxxxxxxxx\.com$ [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.xxxxxxxxxx.com/$1 [L,R=301] When I go to http://xxxxxxxxxx.com, I get http://www.xxxxxxxxxx.com (as expected). However, when I go to http://xxxxxxxxxx.com/node/1 (it's a Drupal site), I get a 404 thrown and the URL changes to xxxxxxxxxx.com/var/www/drupal/node/1. Same thing with www.xxxxxxxxxx.com/node/1. Any suggestions? I want to run without Drupal's .htaccess file (instead incorporating these calls into my httpd.conf file). webmaster access_time 21 Oct 2019 - 09:15 In reply to Rewrite including filesystem path by Anonymous (not verified) I think the problem is with the base path which results in the redirection to /var/www/ part. The best approach I would think is to start with drupal htaccess and then strip out parts and move to httpd SNVC (not verified) access_time 21 Oct 2019 - 09:15 This is definitely a good guide. Thanks for this. wellyson access_time 21 Oct 2019 - 09:15 This is really nice and helpful. Add new comment

We have volunteered to take up the maintenance of a very useful Drupal module - Search404. As of today we are the official maintainers of this very useful Drupal module. We know that this is going to be a challenge for us, being a young company and with a young team. But we do feel that it is our responsibility to give back to the Drupal community at least some part of what it has given us.
