The Content Management Filter is a contributed module that adds an easier way for administrators to filter the content on a Drupal site for administration purposes.
CMF is an alternative to the Administer » Content management » Content tool with these additional options:
We all get spammers who register for accounts only to spam our sites. One good use of this module is to locate all their content and dispense with it quickly and easily.
- Show nodes, comments or both
- Filter by author (select from drop-down list)
- Filter by author (enter username in AJAX search field)
- Filter by user role (shows nodes authored by any user in the selected role)
- Filter by user status (active or blocked)
- Filter by title or body substring
- Filter by node created date (before/after)
- Displays a column in the content list with node creation time
- Sort content list by any column: Title, Type, Author, Status, Time
CMF also optionally adds a User Content tab to the My Account page that brings up CMF with a list of nodes authored by the current user. Someone with the permissions to administer users may also see this page for any user.
Drupal's built-in Content tool is sorely missing the sort and filter-by-author features. CMF users can manage content without having to grant full "Administer nodes" permission. ("Administer nodes" permission is required to have the default Content tool appear and it grants users full access to create/edit all content.)
For those who like to add a bit of color to their pages, there is an optional section in the CSS file to add color to the buttons.
Standard module installation applies.
- filter and manage site content - gives access to the CMF page.
- view user content list - gives access to the user page.
- access user profiles - gives access to the user page.
The functional page to filter and administer content can be found by navigating to
Administer » Content management » Content
