Using Drupal Chapter 7: Managing Publishing Workflows

For large, content-driven web projects, building the initial site structure and getting the design “just so” is only the beginning of the work. If more than a handful of people are writing content for the site, the process of reviewing, editing, and publishing articles can be a Herculean task. Newspapers, online magazines, and even many large blogs with multiple contributors need tools to ensure that editors can effectively manage the review process. In this series, we'll be using Workbench, a series of modules that improve content management and publication workflow in Drupal. We will be building a site for a volunteer news organization, and implementing a full editorial workflow. In the process we will use the following modules: Workbench, Workbench Moderation, Workbench Access, core Taxonomy, and Pathauto.
