Menu Firstchild |

By default, Drupal 6 requires that you enter a path for each menu link you add/edit from the Menu administration page. There are cases you may want to create a parent item, without any path, that simply links to its first viewable child item. Menu Firstchild provides this functionality.

Menu Editor |

Menu Editor enhances the menu editing form with inline text fields for title, path and description, and provides placeholders for new items. This way, it reduces the number of page visits needed to create a site's menu structure, and eliminates the need for dummy nodes.

4 Challenges that News Publishing organizations have with Drupal (and some solutions)

Over the past 6 months, we have been working with a few news publishing organizations. Some have smaller production/editorial departments with 5-6 people while others have much bigger operations. However, in most cases, the production/editorial departments do not have a lot of staff members who know HTML extensively. While Drupal has a lot of functionalities that allow for non technical users to manage content, a few things do make it challenging.
