Seven Little Modules Every Site Builder Should Be Using

4,414 views

Published on

With over 7,000 Drupal 7 modules to choose from, there is no way that any single person can have even a passing knowledge of all the possibilities. Our community is extremely fortunate that we have awesome community events to share knowledge and to learn little tips and tricks that we can bring back to our day-to-day Drupal work.

In this presentation I'll share 7 little modules that I've come to love over the past year. None of the modules are in the top 200 most used Drupal projects - in fact, 3 of the 7 modules aren't even in the top 1500.

I'll demonstrate sample use cases for each module, and you'll leave this session with actionable knowledge that you can put to work immediately.
