Intro to Fields for Drupal Site Builders

by Joe Shindelar

Learn the fundamentals of working with core Drupal content types and fields, from configuration to extending your field options.

What you'll learn

In this series, you will build out a job posting board using the built-in field module in Drupal 7, along with some other contributed modules. This covers the basics that Site Builders need to know about how to add fields, configure how they're displayed, and use all of the different types of fields including file files, image files, term references, node references, and user references. Each chapter of this series builds upon the last as the team builds and configures two content types for posting available jobs and job applications. To follow along with this course, you'll need to have access to a web server where you can either install Drupal 7 yourself, or have a pre-existing installation of Drupal 7 core.
