Chapter 6. Managing Your Content

In This Chapter

  • Controlling HTML in your content

  • Hiding content from logged-out visitors

  • Managing comments

  • Creating pages

Drupal offers you a number of options that allow you to customize the appearance of your content. This chapter shows you how to leverage Drupal's options to refine your content further. You see how to include HTML code, images, and even Flash movies in your posts. Also, I discuss the comment system and how to control the appearance and behavior of comments. I also show you how to temporarily hide posts while you continue to work on them and how to control who can see them when they are published. Along the way, I include information about a few other optional tweaks to the presentation of your content that Drupal gives you. There's a lot of good stuff in this chapter to help you fine-tune your nodes.

Note

The tweaks and settings discussed in this chapter apply to both pages and stories. They also apply to other node types, including polls, blog posts, and forum posts I discuss in Chapter 9.

Most of the settings I discuss in this chapter are accessed from the form used to create or edit content. They are accessed by clicking on the links under the large Body text box (see Figure 6-1).

Note

You get to the content editing form for any of your pages or stories by logging in as administrator and clicking on Administer
