Drupal 6: Online Presentation of Data: Part 9 of 10

Connecting content to existing nodes By Tom Geller

Drupal 6: Online Presentation of Data

Drupal's built-in data presentation tools offer several ways for web designers to clearly and attractively package their data. In Drupal 6: Online Presentation of Data, Tom Geller explains how Drupal handles data so users can set up intelligent structures and implement them with Drupal's Content Construction Kit.

Tom also shows how a data-driven web site can improve its interactivity by using geographic data to connect real-world addresses to maps.

Topics include:

  • Importing and manipulating data in Drupal
  • Presenting date-formatted information in calendars
  • Understanding Drupal's data-query interface, "Views"
  • Improving view appearances with grid, list, and table formatting
  • Importing, exporting, and cloning views
  • Extending views with arguments and relationships
