Definitions web publishing process

Definitions – web publishing process

  • 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

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.

Drupal Concepts

  • 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)
