    ADDISON BERRY: One of the main building blocks of our site
  • 0:12
    is going to be the date module.
  • 0:15
    And this is going to provide the when
  • 0:17
    for us in our event content type.
  • 0:20
    The main thing that we're looking at here
  • 0:22
    is the ability to add a field that let's just put a date and a time

    on our event.

Spotlight: Date Module


The main building block for the site is our new Event content type. The information that we need it to provide us with is “where” and “when.” We have taken care of the “where” part in our initial setup, and the Date module helps us answer the “when” question, in an incredibly flexible manner. Our main interest in the Date module is the ability to add a field to our Event content type to indicate date and time. However, looking at the Date module more closely, there are a few extra pieces worth noting. In this lesson we'll get a good overview of what the Date module provides by looking at Submodules, Field Types, Form Elements, and Field Settings.
