In order to maximize maintainability for the large number of UQ sites, we are providing a set of modules that cover the majority of use cases. These modules are listed below.
For sites where required functionality is not possible with the defined set of modules, there is the possibility of adding other modules to either the generally available set of UQ enterprise wide modules, or restricted to the specific site on which it is to be used.
For every site that deviates from the use standard features available globally, developers must create Drupal features for all of the custom content types, roles, permission sets, and other Drupal structures.
Our ongoing maintenance requires a Feature Revert on all sites. In the case of Feature Revert on all features of breaking a site, developers will be required to be fix any issues beforea site is accepted into our system.
The standard method for creating a feature, is to put data structures as well as visual layouts that should not change into the feature, with defaults for settings, variables and others into the hook_install() into the feature itself. This will allow at least the base to be built, and defaults put in place, but allow site builders to customize without halting deployment processes, both for themselves and for us.
Requesting Modules or Features
These may be requested from firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to suggest a generally useful module for inclusion in the UQ CMS environment please email email@example.com outlining the rationale for its inclusion to begin a discussion with the CMS team.
The CMS team will check the functionality already exits, or is in planning.
Before a module can be added, the proposed functionality will be checked for suitablilty to the wider UQ audience, security and accessiblilty issues. The module must be maintained and at a stable release (no alpha versions).
