Mir2Drupal - Drupal 7 Modules

This page documents the possible Drupal 7 modules we can use to configure an Indymedia site migrated from MIR.

List of modules for possible use

  1. Localization:
    1. Enable locale module (core).
    2. Install site-specific languages.
  2. Anti-SPAM settings:
    1. CAPTCHA (not stable for D7 as of 2011-05-23).
    2. reCAPTCHA (stable for D7, but depends on CAPTCHA module above).
    3. AntiSpam (stable for D7).
  3. Multimedia solutions:
    1. Video, handbook (stable for D7).
    2. Working with images (included in D7 core).
    3. Gallery formatter (stable for D7).
    4. Media, FAQ, Documentation (not stable for D7 as of 27 May 2011).

Todo list:

  1. Check if modules are compatible with each other.
  2. Check if these correspond to the best solutions for our needs.
  3. Check if modules which are not stable will be stable soon, history of development, compatibility with other modules, plans for future development.
