The ExpertsDatabase is going to be implemented in Drupal by mainly using Drupal core and contributed modules. The final ExpertsDatabase will be released as a Drupal module which will perform some automatic installation task but manual installation and configuration will be also required.

Drupal Modules

Beside core modules the following contributed modules are used to build up the ExpertsDatabase:

  • auto_nodetitle

  • cck (with cck_nodereference_views_fusion_47.patch)

  • cck_taxonomy_ssu

  • subform_element

  • taxonomy_xml

  • views

  • views_fusion

How to install the ExpertsDatabase

Import taxonomies

Import all taxonomies xml files from ./expertDB/resources/

When importing the taxonomies by the taxonomy_xml it is highly recommended that you set

the max_execution_time and max_input_time in the php.ini to a value which is high

enough to prevent from interrupting the import process.

We use the following setting. Five Minutes of max_execution_time should be sufficient:

max_execution_time = 300     
max_input_time = 120

IMPORTANT: You must check the 'Allow duplicate terms' option when importing

- DAISIE taxonomy structure.import.xml

- geography-ed2.import.xml 

Once all taxonomies are imported you should restore the former values of max_execution_time and max_input_time.

Setup access control

To setup the access control go to {{admin/user/access}} and set the permissions according to the following notes:

In the following the authenticated user role will be abbreviated by AU and the asterisk character '*' is going to be used as wild card.

Module: NodeProfile

Grant access to the role authenticated user for the following permissions:

  • each create expertbd_* content

  • each edit own expertbd_* content

  • (each edit expertbd_* content )
