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.

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop,
just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now
destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is
totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News.
Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News?

I've been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
Thanks

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my
own weblog and was wondering what all is required
to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% sure.

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Appreciate it

I believe what you typed was actually very reasonable. However,
what about this? suppose you were to write a killer title?
I am not saying your information isn't good., however suppose you added a title that grabbed people's
attention? I mean Add new comment | arxic Drupal is a little
plain. You could peek at Yahoo's home page and
note how they create post titles to grab people to click.
You might add a video or a related picture or two to get readers interested about everything've written. In my opinion, it
could bring your posts a little livelier.
