The Basics of Content Type Design in Drupal
Here is a simple video I put together to go over some high level tips and strategies for designing content types for a new Drupal site. Basically you want to remember 4 things:
- Will I actually use this content type enough to warrant it's own designation?
- Can I simplify the name to something generic versus overly specific?
- Whare are the structure requirements for this type?
- Can I simply use a tagging system to differentiate between similarly structured content?
The video includes the use of a mind map in creating a design.comments powered by Disqus
