Aside from the obvious candidates such as Views, CCK etc, here are a list of 10
contributed modules that I currently use on each Drupal project.
So, in no particular order:
The admin module provides UI
improvements to the standard Drupal admin interface. I’ve just upgraded to the
new 6.x-2.0-beta4 version, and installed the
themes. So far, so good!
- **Better Permissions/Filter Permissions:
**Basic permissions is a basic module which enhances the Drupal
Permissions page to support collapsing and expanding permission rows. Filter
permissions provides filters at the top of the Permissions page for easier
management when your site has a large amount of roles and/or permissions.
- **Better Formats:
formats is a module to add more flexibility to Drupal’s core input format
- Clone module:
Allows users to
make a copy of an existing item of site content (a node) and then edit that
- **Vertical Tabs:
into Drupal 7 core, this module adds vertical tabs to the node add and edit
**Context allows you to
manage contextual conditions and reactions for different portions of your
site. You can think of each context as representing a “section” of your site.
For each context, you can choose the conditions that trigger this context to
be active and choose different aspects of Drupal that should react to this
- Node Picker:
A rewrite of the
module TinyMCE Node Picker.
Allows you to easily create links to internal nodes.
- Module Filter:
module aims to accomplish is the ability to quickly find the module you are
looking for without having to rely on the browsers search feature which more
times than not shows you the module name in the ‘Required by’ or ‘Depends on’
sections of the various modules or even some other location on the page like a
Quickly create Zen
- Add Another:
displays a message after a user creates a node, and/or displays an “Add
another” tab on nodes allowing them to make another node of the same type. You
can control what roles and node types see this feature.
