Logout Redirect

If you log out of a Drupal site and then hit the back button,
you can see pages from the authenticated user's previous session.

This could be a problem on public computers, if the authenticated user
had permission to see content protected by node access (or similar).

Quick Node Block

This module is completely superfluous at first sight ... but still .. You can present content as a block by creating a 'custom block' and giving it a place on your page. You can also create a view that displays a block with, for example, the most recent content.

Pager

If you view content, you can use this tool to navigate to the previous and next nodes. You can even do this with multiple content types at the same time. The navigation can be used with an image. Dispaly as a small block or an extendable slide.

Fontawesome

Fontawesome is a module that allows you to bring icons to your website without having to upload them. Just think of the icon for an airport, a toilet, fire hazard, etc ...

MixItUp Views

Surprisingly simple and clever module that allows you to simulate Facets without the difficult settings and search engines that are needed for Facets! The view has a nice built-in animation that is also fully responsive ..

Feeds Tamper

The Feeds module to import data is not usable without Feeds Tamper. This module ensures, for example, that the data from your import file fits into a multiple field. You can then separate the terms with a comma in one column and the Feeds Tamper will then read this comma as for each new item.

Prepopulate

A module that allows you to transfer content from one node to a new node in another content type. You choose which fields you transfer. Suppose a visitor looks at a node (for example a product) and that you provide a request information button, about this product with a nodeform ....

Read only mode

If you are updating your website, it is recommended to put your site in maintenance mode. Then, no content can be added via webforms. This would give a problem as the site is not ready to receive this new data.

Text2Image

A module where you first have to think about the usefulness of it ... It converts text fields (also title field) to an image (in png). You can set background and letter color. With the module there are also a number of fonts, but you can add them yourself. All text, becomes an image.

External Body Linker

It is common for internal links to be opened in the same window and external links in a new window. This module will automatically take care of this if you make links in the CKEditor. The check mark to automatically detect a link must of course be turned on.

Leaflet

A module that you have to install with composer because there are corresponding libraries. Leaflet provides a map output for the Geofield. You can set this when displaying the field.

Geocoder

This module will help you to enter the latitude / longitude coordinates in a Geofield field.

Must be installed with Composer as a library comes along.

At the settings of the module you tick which services (= type of cards) you want to use.

Geofield

A field type with which you can enter coordinates for a location determination. This module almost always forms the basis for an output with a card. You then need other modules for that.

You can choose input from different options.

Holiday Chart

A calendar with the holidays ... On clicking you can easily indicate the holidays as an admin. Unfortunately, the module does not provide CSS and therefore you do not get a calendar but the data come as a list. The clicking does work. All Sundays are holidays ... you can not change this ..

Node Title Validation

There is something like 'field validation', which determines what is allowed to be typed in a field and what is not. However, the title field is a special case. It is not regarded as an ordinary field. This module makes it possible to set a validation for the title field as well.

Node Save Redirect

Simple module with many possibilities. After creating and / or adjusting content, you can perform a redirect instead of displaying the content. For example, you can place a thank you. Normally this can also be done with Rules ..., but this is easier.

Marquee

Turns a simple text field display into a marquee. Add some CSS to the .marquee class yourself.

The display of the field.

Screen001157.png

Choose the direction.

A Simple Timeline

Handy module that turns a view into a timeline. The word timeline can be interpreted broadly. Everything that you actually want to show among each other is eligible. The order of the view is decisive for this. It does not have to be a date.

You have different settings:

Field as Block

This module is just the opposite as Blockfield. It converts a field into a block. For example, you can show an image of a content type somewhere in a block instead of between the other fields. This can be useful and is actually a kind of 'light' Panels or Display Suite.

Animate On Scroll

A clever module ... Ensures that you can provide some animations when scrolling. View the overview of the possibilities on their site. The codes you see then must be applied to your div's. You can rewrite the fields in a view.

Admin Menu Search

Admin Menu Search intends to help admin to search through the list of menus available in Drupal Toolbar providing autocomplete list. Providing a fast access to all administration links for keyboard lovers.

Requirements: Admin Toolbar, Admin Toolbar Tools

Facets

With the Facet module, site builders can easily create and manage facets of search interfaces. You can see this a lot on webshops.

Content Access

This module allows you to determine access at content type level.

Who is allowed to see, modify, create the nodes? Can be set per roll.

You go to your content type. A tab has been added with access rights.

Sticky

You can use CSS to make every piece of your page Sticky. A menu bar then remains at the top when scrolling. You give the section a class or ID name and you add position: sticky. A CSS instruction that is fairly recent. Older browsers can not do this.

Link target

The link field can be set globally at the view to open the links in another window or the same.

If you now want to determine per node (actually per link) what the target of the hyperlink is, this is a useful module. A widget will be added to the form input.

Simplify

A module that hides some things for the user. For example, you always get a complete explanation of a text field which html can be used and which can not. Disturbing ... With Simplify you can hide this and other things.

So it is normal:

Color field

A module that allows you to choose a color. You wonder what this can serve for? Well ... I combine it with the Token module and I let someone determine the background color of the site without the person needing Drupal knowledge.

An example

Image effect

We have seen several modules for making image styles.. (eg Focal Point, Imagick,..) This one is interresting for making images of the same size without loss of pixels. The empty space is filled with a white background.

An example.

Image Hover Effects

Add some hovr effects on your images in nodes and views.

With a little CSS (use Asset injector), you can display images in an attractive way. Take an image style larger than you CSS width. When zooming in the image will still show acceptable resolution.

Flag

If you want to change content, taxonmy, users, ... in the future, you can set a bookmark. So you can see in a view the items you selected.

The module has 2 built in types of flags; Bookmark for content and Follower for users. 

You can add a new one yourself eg. A to do list

Field Display Label

Simple module that allows you to override the field label in the display of the field. I usually give a field a name with the content type in it. (eg immo_image) Easy to use in views. With this module one can override this technical name.

 

GTranslate

Translate the content of your site with Google Translate... Not always correct, but the visitor knows what you want to say... The built in, multilanguage module in the core of Drupal 8 allows you to do the translations yourself. This is much better than GTranslate, but needs a lot of work..

Geysir

Strange name for this module..that makes working with Paragraphs very easy. It offers an interface to add, delete and edit paragraphs while looking at the content as administrator.

A date field than can be displayed in three different countdowns.. text, Led and clock display. If the date has passed, you can turn it automatically into a timer showing the days and hours passed.

Search Exclude (Node)

Iframe

This module allows you to capture content from another site. For security reasons this is depreciated. Most of the browsers block this content. Therefore this module can not be used...unless you use another module... 'Allow site iframing'.

Honeypot

This module adds an extra field to the form. Users don't see this field, spam bots do. From the moment this field (=honeypot) is filled, the form closes for some seconds.

This method is very user friendly as it is not visible for the user. Not so effectieve as Mollom though...
