When you learn how Drupal handles dates, you can create event functionality, listing pages with a unique result set, and calendars. The Dates Series begins with basic configurations and the contributed modules required to integrate with other functionality. In addition to creating a new content type for our Date field via the wizard, we also explore all possible configuration choices by diving deeper into the Date field. Once we have content on our site, we move into displaying the content in unique ways in Views by using basic filters, exposed filters and contextual filters. Other demonstrations in this series include working with multiple date fields, repeating dates and integrating with the Context module.
If you would like to work along with the video, the entire demo site can be downloaded and set up (it is found on the introduction video's Downloads tab). The zip file includes the Drupal files, the database, and a README.txt file to explain setting it up. The site was created using the Demonstration module so that you can switch back and forth among the finished states of the various chapters.
