Sprout Video

In this video series, Joe Shindelar, Karen Stevenson and Michelle Lauer build out a job posting board using the built-in Fields in Drupal 7 along with some other contributed modules. They cover the basics that Site Builders need to know about how to add fields, configure how they're displayed, and using all of the different types of fields including file files, image files, term references, node references, and user references. Each chapter of this video builds upon the last as the team builds and configures two content types for posting available jobs and job applications.

In this video, Joe shows the finished project we're going to make together through this series. Later in the series we'll be going through the steps necessary in order to create the job posting and job application content types he demonstrates here.

This video will pair well with Intro to Views in Drupal 7, which will continue this job board project through to completion.
