Now Drupal 7.2 is setup, I’m looking into how to configure it to fit:
- extend the fields for users, such as Name, Last name, etc.
- list of users (for authenticated users only)
- calendar with coming events (for authenticated users only)
- share and store documents (for authenticated users only)
- share and store pictures (for authenticated users only)
- remove breadcrumb (maybe…)
Ad 1 Extend user fields
Via Configuration –> People –> Account settings go to Manage fields and add all fields you want to have for your users.
Ad 2 List of users
Install Ctools (http://ftp.drupal.org/files/projects/ctools-7.x-1.x-dev.tar.gz). Then install Views (http://ftp.drupal.org/files/projects/views-7.x-3.x-dev.tar.gz). Enable Chaos tools in the Modules page, then enable Views and at last enable Views UI.
For more extended help on Views, install Advanced help (http://ftp.drupal.org/files/projects/advanced_help-7.x-1.0-beta1.tar.gz) and enable it.
Create a new view based on users, add the fields created in step 1 that you want to appear, set the output to e.g. table and you’re set.
Ad 3 Calendar
The easy easy way is to just create a page, make it only visible for authenticated users and add a link in the page pointing to e.g. a Google calendar. In this case, just maintain the calendar via Google.
Setting access to pages for authenticated users requires the Content Access module (http://ftp.drupal.org/files/projects/content_access-6.x-1.2.tar.gz). When installed and enabled, make sure to enable access control per content node.
Setup dates in the system using the Date module (http://ftp.drupal.org/files/projects/date-7.x-2.0-alpha3.tar.gz). Then use the Calendar module (http://ftp.drupal.org/files/projects/calendar-7.x-2.0-alpha1.tar.gz) for creating a Google alike calendar view.
After installing the modules, enable the Date API, then Date, then Date Views and finally the Calendar module. Create a new content type, call it e.g. Event. Add a field called e.g. Date of type Date to the new content type.
Note: somehow a View is not able to link to the new date field. In a previous version it worked, either use an older version of the modules or wait for it to be fixed.
Ad 4 Share and store documents
Ad 5 Share and store pictures
4 and 5 seem to be related. A solution for both is the Media module (http://ftp.drupal.org/files/projects/media-7.x-1.0-beta4.tar.gz) which requires the Styles module (http://ftp.drupal.org/files/projects/styles-7.x-2.0-alpha8.tar.gz).
For Styles enable Styles, File Styles and Styles UI.
Ad 6 Remove breadcrumb
Edit themes/bartik/templates/page.tpl.php, find the lines that print the breadcrumb and comment the lines.
Enable rewrite module by adding it to Apache, use sudo a2enmod rewrite, then edit the /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default file, set AllowOverride All for /var/www and then restart Apache (sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart).
