Learning Launch: the Drupal Rules Module

Drupal CKEditor

Our latest video class covers Rules for Drupal.

Rules is a powerful module that is used to automate actions on your Drupal site.

With the Rules module, you select an event (for example, a new article is written) and then specify an action (for example, an email is sent to the site administrator).

In this series we demonstrate the basics of Rules and give you a detailed, real-life example. We walk through the process for notifying an author when someone makes a comment on their article.
