Whenever we speak about Drupal we tend to talk about how functional it is and how its different features are extremely useful. But when one is creating a Drupal website it is essential to know what are the must haves – without which the website will remain incomplete. I have shortlisted the ‘5 Must Haves’ that you need to have in your Drupal website.
Content uploaded in the website is of vital importance and when you are using Drupal one can easily build the content types on the site with its distinctive configuration and specific fields. Say for example you want to upload a News Article on the site, you can construct it in such a way so that you can easily upload an image and use the Image Cache Module to configure the presentation.
If you were on the lookout for customized URL’s then you can easily do so with the path auto module where the user needs to physically mention the path alias. As such you will be able to create your own personalized URL’s.
This is one of the best features of Drupal. An excellent tool one can easily resize, scale, crop as well as rotate the images as per the need. Say for example you have uploaded an image of 600x400px but on the particular page you want to display only 300x200px, you can easily do so with this feature.
If you were on the lookout for a feature that will help you to check out the different lists of content and regulate the list then Views module is what you need. It allows one to navigate the entire website in an effortless manner.
And finally who does not want a SEO friendly site? So don’t forget to use the Node module as it allows one to add Meta tags to Drupal pages. It can be done both in an automatic way as well as manually.
