Creating nodes

On the first page you see as an administrator on a new Drupal site, there are no less than three links to add new content – one in the sidebar, one in the shortcuts at the top of the page, and one right in the middle of the page. (See figure 1.1) They all open the administrative overlay, allowing you to create either an Article or a Basic page. (See figure 1.2)

Articles and Basic pages are two node types or types of content. Clicking on any of the type names will give you a form used to build a content of that type. This is called the node form. The forms used for Articles and Basic pages are different, but they work the same way. You get a number of fields where you can input information, and you have buttons for previewing or saving the piece of content. (See figure 1.3)


Figure 1.1: A Drupal standard installation without any content – click add content to create your first node!


Figure 1.2: By default, nodes – content – come in two flavors: Articles and Basic pages.

Below is a description for the fields available in the Article node form.

    Achieve Taxonomy Image function in Drupal 7 with Imagefield

    Now when Taxonomy is an entity, and an entity can have fields; Taxonomy Image functionality can be achieved by adding a Image field to a vocabulary.

    How to do this

    1. Enable Image module and its required modules.
    2. Go to the Taxonomy settings page (Administration » Structure » Taxonomy) and choose edit for the vocabulary that you would like to associate images and terms – and then go to Manage fields in the tabs menu.
    3. Now add a image field and make the necessary settings for that field.
    4. Now you have a image field to add images, when you add or edit terms that belong to the vocabulary that has the image field.

    Display taxonomy images inside nodes

    In the, not so crazy, scenario that you want to display the taxonomy image you just created inside a node, you can do this in Drupal 7 with the use of some extra modules.

    First, you will need Entity API and EntityReference installed and enabled. Optionally, you may also want to have Entity View Mode so you can create a custom view mode for displaying the taxonomy term with just the image.

    Then, follow the steps below:

      Migrate Image module to FileField

      The script at http://drupal.org/node/201983#comment-4483072 migrates images from Image, Image Attach, and Video Image modules to FileField in Drupal 6.

      In addition to the prerequisites mentioned in the code, if you started with image.module in Drupal 5, you'll need to make sure that you've successfully upgraded image.module first. See http://drupal.org/node/342269.
