Scrollshow Installation Guide

This guide will help you get the Scrollshow module installed and configured.

Step 1: Install the Scrollshow module

First, you must install the Scrollshow module in the normal Drupal way.

Step 2: Create Content

Scrollshow will work with any Drupal node content. In this example, we will simply create nodes using the built-in page content type:

README.txt Template

The following components and template are based on the input of many who contributed to the discussion "Create a README.txt template". For the sake of having a fleshed out example, we're using some text from the Administration menu module's README.txt.

README files are not explicitly required, however they are strongly encouraged for every project.

Table of contents

TOCs are optional, but appreciated for lengthy README files.

Rules Support

The following features are available only when installing the Rules extension of protected nodes. This extension requires the thrid party Rules extension for Drupal.

Protected Node Rules Conditions

When handling a Node, it is possible to check whether the node is currently protected or locked.

Protected Nodes

A node is said protected when the node was protected by a password using the Protected node module.

Views Support

The additional support includes fields, filters, and sort capabilities that are added to the Node type. The join between the regular node and the protected node data is the node identifier (nid). This means the revision identifier is ignored.

  • Password last changed

    This value is the date when the password was last modified. You can display this date, filter using the date, and sort by date.

Password Fork Feature

Password Fork

The new module allows for a password fork.

This means you can send your users to one specific page, and tell them about a password to use on that one page. Depending on the password, they will be sent to one of several nodes.

This works in a very similar way as the other password form, except that there is no specific destination, and the users need to know any one of the passwords.

The feature uses a specific URL defined as follow:


Password Form

Protected Node Password Form

Once a node is protected, users who cannot bypass the password are sent to a simple password form.

The password form includes a field for users to enter the node password, and an "OK" button.

When the user's browser sends a referrer, the Protected Node module adds a "Cancel" link back to that referrer. The "Cancel" link can be made to always appear by using global settings. If no referrer is available, the "Cancel" link returns users to the home page.
