A couple of days ago, I started implementing a rather interesting piece of code. It was late into the night, and I was not feeling like doing my regular work and neither was I sleepy.
Take Control is an administrative module for the popular Drupal CMS created by me last year primarily for managing this very website. The module is currently in its 2.x series with major enhancements and features being introduced in its 2.0 release, notably featuring a full-fledged File Browser/Manager.
The original intent for creating the module was discussed by me in an earlier blog post:
The official page for the module on drupal.org is this:
The module package is available on the official module page listed above.
The current page you are viewing has been created as the permanent address for the module on my website, where I would provide updates on the module development status, and links to some other resources I have created for using the module. You can also use this for discussing with me any issues you face while using the module. However, please file all bug reports and feature requests at the official module issue queue.
You can find a video tutorial demonstrating the steps for installation of the module here:
I originally used FamFamFam icons for the File Browser, which I was not able to commit to the module's CVS because of licensing conflicts with Drupal. The module now ships with a default icon-set for the File Browser, that are GPL licensed. You can find addtional icon-sets for the File Browser here:
An online demo for the module is now available here:
Below are some of the screenshots for the module:
- Jun 18, 2011 - Drupal 7 port of the module is now available. Please download and test the same from the official module page at drupal.org.
- Apr 30, 2012 - A greatly enhanced Drupal 7 version of the module with ability to configure accessible paths per-role and per-user is now available. Please help test the latest dev version from here and report any issues you find to enable releasing a stable version with the new features:
