Drupal Lite: Additional Features

From its introduction to the University community, a number of features have been developed for Drupal Lite that may not be enabled on all sites. Older sites may have fewer features enabled than sites requested today. Additionally, some Drupal Lite features are only available upon request. The following list describes features that can be enabled on a Drupal Lite site: 

  • Special Menu: Provides placeholder and separator menu items. A placeholder menu item is a menu item which is not a link, and a separator menu item is a nonword set of characters, for example -------, which does not link anywhere but provides a way to structure menus and separate menu items visually.
  • Webform: Allows site administrators to create web forms and questionnaires.
  • Layout Table: Provides an option for presenting non-tabular content in a table-like format. It presents information in a table-like, accessible format and dynamically sizes your content so that each individual content cell will be the same height and width.
  • Site map: Provides a page that lists all links on the site.
  • Reading Time: Displays the estimated amount of time needed to read the displayed text.
  • Image Slider: Provides an image slider where you can add links to images and image titles (Enabled).
  • Back to Top: Allows site visitors to jump back to the top of the page as they scroll down.
  • Escape Button: Developed for the Aurora Center, this feature closes the Drupal Lite page the user is on and loads two new tabs.
  • Redirect: Allows you to redirect one URL to another. This feature is useful if you are moving a site from another platform (e.g. Web Hosting for Departments) to Drupal Lite.
  • Colorbox: Provides a modal image gallery that allows site owners to display thumbnails of images that site visitors can click to view the full size (Enabled).
  • Photo Grid: Displays two or more images within a single image layout.
  • UMN Lite Collage Feature: Provides a responsive display of images.
  • Intranet site: Removes permissions from general site visitors and creates a view-only role that can be assigned to accounts that should only have access to view the site content.
