This series on Learning the Rules framework was produced by Johan Falk of, and it will present some basic and advanced usage of the Rules framework.

The Rules module helps decrease the need for custom coding. Johan starts with an empty sandbox site. He enables the 3 related Rules modules, and the modules they depend on. Now, we see what it can do for our site by creating some reaction rules. This isn’t just an introduction – you actually get into the mechanics of using Rules right away.
