Suppose you are testing a product selling website and the site has affiliate links for products. From a tester point of view here I am explaining the cases to be considered while testing affiliate links. Before going to the cases, here I give a general idea about Affiliate links. Affiliate links means they are external links from a site that leads to services, merchants or vendors and it is mainly used for generating revenues for a site based on the clicks. Commonly seen Affiliate links are Ads displayed on a site and when a user clicks the ads the site gets revenue. Suppose your Drupal site displays a product say "books" and links to merchant sites like Amazon or eBay are displayed as affiliated links for that product. When user clicks on 'Amazon or eBay' links, it will be redirected to their corresponding merchant site and user can buy the product from that site. So when a user purchases a product using this affiliate link, our site will gets revenue from merchant sites.

Slideshow is one of the common functionality you would find in the homepage of websites. It is nothing but the slides with text/pictures used to give an idea of the website. It can be used to summarize the various aspects of the company into a compact and user-friendly slider. Slideshows can be of different designs. Some of the websites use buttons to highlight the navigation of the slides while others use numbers, thumbnail images and so on. Here I have included an image, in which numbering is used for highlighting slider navigation.

Even without the edit permissions to nodes, users are allowed to add and remove nodes from the queue. This module is usually used on sites which have features that allow users to manually control the order of display of nodes.

We all are familiar with the drop-downs on website. It is used to list a series of items under a box/menu. Suppose we have a page which lists apparels. And in apparels we have categories like shirts, t-shirts, trousers etc. We can sort these categories with the help of a drop-down (select tool). The working of drop-down is in such a way that, by default the drop-down will list only one item. When user clicks the down arrow which is displayed near to the menu, the drop-down will be dropped down and will list all the choices below. The drop-down may have pretty large list of items. So in order to select the down most items, there will option for users to scroll down. These are the primary things about a drop-down. Now lets see the test cases for testing the drop-down.
