The web publishing process allows non-technical people to not only read the web, but also to submit their content to the web; to sort, tag, and classify it; and work on the content collaboratively
The tools/software that enables web publishing is called content management system (CMS). CMSs have been in use / development for about a decade
Today we will give examples of how create content and edit a Drupal site
Definitions - the Content
Content can be news, events info, a person’s profile, pictures from a trip, new publications, or more specialized content, for example, medical records, properties of novel nano-materials, botanical plants info.
In addition to common attributes each content type has its own custom attributes.
All types of content need to be sorted, tagged, and displayed in a various ways, for example, alphabetically
Different content types have predefined relationships; for example, publications have authors who have profiles and who participate in events.
Enter data only once – display where needed, no duplicate entry of same info on different pages
Different Content Types (course, faculty, events, news, publications, photos, etc.) have different fields for data entry (courses have course numbers, people have related departments)
Relationships can be established between different content types (course have related person who is teaching this course)
