This week we finish up our series on using the Context and Bean modules. We'll look at integrating the Bean module into our workflow and the advantages it provides. The combination of the Bean and Context modules will replace our normal use of the Drupal core block system. We will take a look at how adding fields to "blocks", and the ability to export our configuration to code, makes for a more powerful layout tool.
This week we finish off the series with the following videos:
- Overview of the Bean Module (FREE)
- Bean UI, Bean Types, and Working with Fields
- Blocks as Content
- Bean and Context
- Bean Permissions
- Exporting Bean Configurations with the Features Module
Next week we'll take a look at making a multilingual sites, as we continue our series based on the Using Drupal Book by O'Reilly.
