Part of Drupal For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Drupal’s Content menu allows you to create and manage content. To quickly create new Drupal content, log in to your Drupal site as the administrator and click the Add Content link. To manage your Drupal site’s content, click Content on the Dashboard menu bar. The options are

  • Add Content: This is another way to open the Add Content form to create content.

  • Show Only Items Where: This section contains two filters to help you find content posted on your site. You can choose to filter by status (for example, published content or promoted content) or by type (for example, article).

  • Update Options: When you’ve found the content you’re looking for, select the check box next to the item and choose an option from this list to change its status or delete it. You can update multiple items of content at the same time by selecting multiple check boxes.

  • Content tab: View, edit, and delete all content on your Drupal site.

  • Comments tab: List, moderate, and edit comments on your Drupal site.
