Drupal Management

When getting into the content part of creating your Drupal site, one must first understand the difference in options. After navigating to your Create Content section of the admin block, there are two options: the page and the story. So, what’s the difference?


The Page

The page is meant to be a content manager for information that will remain static. Generally, on a normal website, this would be for information such as contacts, about, and FAQs. After creating such pages, there will normally be little need for updating and moderation.


The Story

The story is meant to be a content manager for information that will require commenting and moderation, as well as changes and updates. The most popular example of a story would be your typical blog post article. Also, by default, a story will publish the author, timestamp, and comments, which are all generally accepted as blog post features.

Of course, both the page and the story features can be modified to be either exactly the same, or even more different. The customisability of Drupal is just another reason why the software is so amazing.

Another addition to the content management areas is the ability to decipher both a Title for your page or story, as well as a Menu Link Title, which can actually be very different from the previous option depending on your website needs.
