Content plays in vital role in your website. It is the information that you post and are willing to share with others over the internet. Therefore, the task of generating content is one of the most important things to be handled. Once your content is generated, the next step is its management. Merely creating content will not pay you in the long run, at the back end you need to maintain the same in an apt manner.
Drupal modules can help you in managing the content of your site. Drupal is defined as an open source content management system; this makes the fact more clear that it is the best solution for content issues. Drupal has a rich collection of modules both for creating and managing content; however, in this piece of work, managing modules will be the center of attraction. A brief description of such modules is provided in here.
The Arbitrary Content module is very light-weighted. Though the module performs the dual function, first creating the small pieces of structured content and second managing the same; it is lighter than using full nodes with Views or Panels. The content created is exposed either as blocks or pages.
Would you like the comments or any content (node) to be published on your website without your approval? Obviously not. The Content Approval module makes sure that the content (node) prior publication gets approval from you or the administrator of the website.
This is one of the most helpful modules used for managing content. For the same, it provides a dashboard, which consist a series of tabbed pages (one for each content type) and an overview page. The latest activities and the links to create for each content type are displayed on the overview page. In addition to this, sub-pages are used for adding new nodes of a content type, and to edit its settings. In order to function in the best possible way, this module requires a set of other modules. Those required modules are Chaos Tool Suite (Ctools), Panels and Views. Further, there is one more module, termed as Views Bulk Operations, which is not necessary to be used; however, is recommended.
There are many other modules in Drupal that can act as a helping hand. The basic idea is that the big task of creating and managing content turns out to be really easy with drupal modules. Further, there are modules that take care of editing also. Drupal has a pool of modules for various purposes.
