Intro to Commons, Part 2: How to Customize Your Commons Site

Drupal Commons is online community software that works right out of the box. As we saw in Part 1, Community Managers can make the most out of user-generated content. This content can be reported, moderated, and published across multiple groups.

In Part 2, we’ll dig a bit deeper to learn various techniques on how to best manage your online community. For example, we will review how to create groups with varying levels of privacy and access, which can provide your users with safe places to collaborate and discuss. We’ll show you tools to maintain your site and monitor participation.

You will also learn how to:

  • Customize tags, terms and taxonomy across the site
  • Configure privacy and group access
  • Administer your online community
