Adding content on a Drupal site

This article is aimed at novice level users who would like basic instruction on adding content to a Drupal site. The Drupal Cookbook (for beginners) has a page on adding content, which should be your first point of reference - this article takes a slightly different approach.

Drupal allows users with appropriate permissions the ability to create a variety of different content, which become pages or 'nodes' in the Drupal site.

Logging-in and user permissions

To be able to create content, you must be logged in on the Drupal site and have the appropriate permissions set by the site administrator. To login, enter your user name and password in the respective fields in the "User login" box. If you are unable to log in, use the "Request new password" dialog to login and reset your password. If you are unable to access the "Create content" link in the Navigation menu, contact your site admin.

Adding and editing content basics

Once logged in, click "Create content" in the Navigation menu (typically on the left-hand side of a Drupal site) to see a list of the available content types and a short description of each. The default Drupal content types are: Blog entry, Book page, Forum topic, Page, Poll, and Story. Other common content types are Image and Webform.

Each content type is created by filling out a series of fields on a single page. All have some sort of 'title' field; in most it is called "Title" while for Forum topics it is called "Subject" and for Polls, "Question".

Most content types also have a 'body' field for text input. Depending on the settings for the Drupal site, text can be formatted using a filtered set or the full set of HTML tags. More information on this below.

To edit any content, you must be logged in. Navigate to the content that you want to edit and at the top of the page you will see "View" and "Edit" buttons or links. Click "Edit" to see the input page for the particular piece of content.

Before exploring the details for each content type, it is useful to review the content posting options which are explained in the section "Content post options". The section "Content types and fields" has brief summaries of the fields for the content types.

The frame bag is a classic, but not 'of-the-moment' anymore.
Try eating alot more nutritional fibre, or perhaps your
Mister Hankey is often more such as Mr Tablecloth. A
good rule of thumb is to decide whether you would like a new look
trendy bag or feel more comfortable sticking with
a traditional Prada style.

Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog
platform are you using for this site? I'm getting tired of
Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers
and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you
could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Excellent website you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any community
