Understanding the Fields System in Drupal

Time: Wednesday 17th May 11:15-11:45
Room: Main Theatre
Track: Drupal Development

One of Drupal’s best features is the entity and field system. The ability to create content types and attach custom fields makes Drupal a flexible CMS.

In this session, you’ll learn about the field and entity system. We’ll also perform a live demo and show you how to create a content type and attach fields to it.

You’ll learn the following:
- How to create a content type
- Attach fields
- Discuss all the different fields
- Reuse fields
- Understanding the “number of values”
- And we’ll look at some modules that offer useful field types

By the end you’ll have a better understanding of how fields in Drupal work and have practical examples on how to use them in your next project.
