Understanding Drupal Nodes and Content Types

Any form of content on a Drupal site – whether it's a blog post, a poll, a basic page (static) or an article (real-time) – is called a node. The Drupal node module ensures all content on your site is structured. It provides you with legroom to make content changes effortlessly across the site.

When you are adding content to a site, you are actually dealing with content types. The node module deals with creating, deleting and editing content of your choice.

Add/remove fields, create revisions and do a lot more with nodes. Some of the attributes associated with Drupal nodes are as follows:

  • Content Type
  • Node ID
  • Creation Date
  • Title
  • Author
  • Body
