Common content posting/publishing options in Drupal 6

Content types also have several posting options which are accessible on the input page by expanding the collapsible sections for each option - usually denoted by an arrow or plus sign icon.

Menu settings

The Menu settings section usually appears directly below the Title field on the input pages, somewhere near the top of the input page. This option allows you to create a menu item for the piece of content you are posting. Drupal sites typically have three menus by default: Primary links, Secondary links, and Navigation. For example, on this site, the Primary links menu is located at the top of the page and contains the items 'personal', 'photos', and 'professional'; the Secondary links menu is at the bottom of the page and contains the item 'legal'; and the Navigation menu is on the left sidebar, the box titled 'Navigation'. Many other themes however have both Primary links and Secondary links at the top of the page, others use only Primary links. Typically, you will only want to create a menu item for your content if the particular page is the front of a section or in similar situations. To do so, expand the Menu settings section and enter the text for menu item in the "Menu link title" field, and select the menu from the "Parent item" drop-down menu. The "Weight" option is used to order items in a menu, and can be left at 0. To delete the menu item for a piece of content, edit the content, expand the Menu settings and click the "Delete menu item" button.

Summary options

Several types of content with body fields for blocks of text allow you to designate where the summary of the content should end. The summary is the teaser text that appears below the title on lists, such as on the home page of a Drupal site. To set the summary length, click the cursor at the point in the text where you want to summary to end and click the "Split summary at cursor" button. To remove the summary split, click the "Join Summary" button. If left unset, the summary displayed will be the site default. [the options below appear at the button of the content input pages]

Input format

If allowed in the site permissions, it is possible to select between the available input formats for the text in your content. The two primary input types are "Filtered HTML" and "Full HTML". While you do not have to be an HTML expert to use Drupal (in fact, you could not use it at all, but then you just have a lot of plain text), it is worth knowing some basics. In the Input format options section, there is a link at the bottom, "More information about formatting options", to the built-in help for using the default filtered list of HTML tags. It is here on this site. A good starting primer is the basic HTML tutorial on by Dave Raggert. Scott Williams and Kate Gregory have provided a Compact Index of HTML Tags, which is good for quick reference.

Book outline

Books are a unique way of organizing content in Drupal. A book consists of pages, and each page can have up to nine levels of child pages. To create a book, expand the Book outline section and select the option "" under the "Book" drop-down menu. The "Parent item" menu is used to make the content a child page of the selected page in the book.

Revision information

This option allows you to track and add notes about the changes that you make to content. This can be useful for when more than one person is working on the content.

Comment settings

Comments are the small posts that any user (usually) can submit to provide commentary on an item. Some content types default to comments enabled. To change the default setting, expand the Comment settings section to select: "Disabled", "Read only", or "Read/Write". Ultimately, the ability for anyone to post comments on a site depends on the site permissions.

File attachments

Use this option to be able to attach files from your local hard drive to the content item. Drupal limits the types of files that you can attach, though the specific allowed list may vary on certain sites. Simply expand File attachments and browse to the file you want to upload.

Authoring information

This section allows you to change the name for the "Submitted by" field for content posts from the default, which is your user name when logged in and usually anonymous if not logged in. The post date and time can also be manipulated here.

Publishing options

The last of the post options allows you to specify how the content will be rolled out on the site. By default, the "Published" option is selected for all content types. If you de-select this option, the content will be unpublished: it will not be deleted and will remain on the site, but it will only be visible to users with the appropriate permissions (i.e., only those users who are allowed to unpublished content). The "Promoted to first page" option puts the content on the front page of the site. "Sticky at top of lists" makes the content rise above non-sticky content in lists, like the front page posts, menus, etc.
