Zivtech: 5 Drupal Modules for Content Editors

Planet Drupal - 21 December 2017 - 10:01am

As a content management system, Drupal is designed to simplify the process for adding, modifying, and removing content, even for users without much technical expertise. 

Beyond its core functionality, Drupal has a number of modules that make life even easier for content writers and editors. Some of these modules, like Views and CKEditor, were added to core when Drupal 8 was released. 

These are some of our other favorite modules that can further simplify workflows for content editors. 

Real-time SEO for Drupal

Content writers always need to strike the right balance between user friendliness and search engine optimization in their work. Content should incorporate SEO strategies in order to appear in relevant searches while also remaining relevant and appealing to site users. 

Real-time SEO for Drupal promises to help “optimize content around keywords in a fast, natural, non-spam way.” The module analyzes elements of your content like page length, meta descriptions, keywords, and subheadings. This helps boost SEO without sacrificing readability, striking that careful balance. This module also requires the metatag module.

Pathauto

Drupal identifies every piece of content with a node ID, which is displayed in the URL. The Pathauto module uses tokens to automatically create URL aliases based on a specific patterned system that you establish.
