To access a module, you must be an Administrator for the site.

A module is a file containing a set of routines written in PHP. The module is executed within the context of the site.

  • Core modules are provided with a Drupal installation and extend Drupal’s functionality.
  • Contributed modules are created by Drupal community users to extend Drupal beyond its default functionality. These modules must be downloaded separately.

To access modules, navigate to the Modules administration page [Administer > Site building > Modules].
