Creating Parent / Child Relationships in Drupal

Let me show you how to create a site using parent, child, grandchild relationships. Do you want to be able to display information from multiple related content types in a single view? What to create an content entry UI that is intuitive, easy, and convient for the user?  All of this can be done with just a little planning and five drupal modules; entity, entityreference, entityconnect, auto_entitylabel, and views.

This session is for all levels of site builders as the concept are straight forward even if they are a bit out of the Drupal box.

During this sessions, I will

  • Discuss the concepts
  • Demonstrate a working model using Drupal Camp as an example.
  • Show you how to create entity referneces and access the child node from the parent.
  • Show you how to utilize the relationship information in view to access data in the child from the parent or access data in the parent from the child.
  • Share with you some views lessons learned from the University of Hard Knock.

In addition, have attached a Word document that describes the process in great detail. For those that don't have word, I have also attached a PDF file. I have tried to convert the word document to other formats, but then it looses all of it formating. The document is a work in progress.  If you find any issues with it, please let me know and I will correct them.
