Installing Modules

Drupal 7 permits installing modules through the web interface.
Find the desired module at http://drupal.org/project/, copy the link to the module you wish to install.
Under Modules choose "Install from a URL" and paste the address copied above.
On an LSNet Drupal website, you must enter your username, password and under advanced settings set the host to helen.ls.net.
Once installed, you can "enable" the newly installed module.
Many modules will require configuration.

You can copy them from a d6 installation.

d7 release party

Tomorrow, January 7th at 12:00 Noon at LSNet, 115 1/2 W Grayson St., 2nd floor, Galax, Virginia, USA

Nothing fancy. We will just take a walk through and consider the ramifications of the new release. Hosted by geeks but everyone will be treated gently.

Coffee, cola and hot dogs. If you want something fancier bring it along but bring enough to share.

Option Multiviews not allowed here

Drupal 7 requires Multiviews which, quixotically, is not a member of the set All.
