Drupal Modules Help

What is a domain name?:

Drupal is a modular content management system. Drupal has many core modules as part of the central modules. Developers around the world create community-written modules and contribute to the Opensource module collection at Drupal. Drupal's core modules provide functionality like

  • Post & revise content
  • Search content
  • Create RSS feeds
  • Create friendly URLs

The externally contributed modules provide additional functionality:

  • e-commerce system
  • workflow features
  • Photo galleries
  • Google Search
  • Google sitemaps
  • integration with other tools

In the video you will see how to enable various modules. For my site JoeMatthew.com and the gotofamousfootwear.com following are the modules that are enabled:
