Content types

Photofolio comes with three build in Content types

Of course Photofolio also supports the rest of Drupal's default content types: Article and Basic page.

Blog post

A blog post, similar in form to a story, is ideal for creating and displaying content that carries images and informs or engages website visitors. Press releases, site announcements, and informal blog entries may all be created with a blog post entry. By default, a blog post entry is automatically featured on the site's initial home page, and provides the ability to post comments. It has the option to be displayed into front page slide show. It provides the ability to attach an image which is automatically adjusted to fit into the websites layout. Blog post enables free tagging (just like labels), taking the taxonomy one step further.

Gallery post

A gallery node, similar in form to an article, is ideal for creating and displaying content that carries a series of images, usually of common context, such as photos of a trip or of the same subject. By default, a Gallery node entry is automatically featured on the site's initial home page, and provides the ability to post comments. However, what’s particularly cool about a Gallery node, is that it provides the ability to attach a series of images, thumbnails of which are automatically created and adjusted to fit into the website layout.

Slideshow entry

A Slideshow entry is ideal for creating commercial banners as well as messages for your website. Use it to promote any page of your website or URL into the front page slide show. It can carry a title, a teaser and an image linking to an internal path or external link.

Image handling

Photofolio comes with the ImageCache module pre-configured and ready to be used. All the content types, Blog entry, Gallery and Slideshow entry make use of this and produce all necessary thumbnails and other derived images.

Just upload your images and the Photofolio will use them for the Front Page, the Image Galleries and any other place where a derived image is needed. Ph3-image-handling-all.png Ph3-image-handling-04.png Ph3-image-handling-05.png Ph3-image-handling-06.png Ph3-image-handling-07.png
