pretty nice module
I find this module very useful on all my websites. Also i need to say is not kind really to deal with it. For drupal begginers if u want to play with this module, i recommend using backup and migrate first, then.. cck to avoid any.. problem :) if u know what i mean..
Such a great tool! I use it to clean my websites.
Could not really live without it.
drupal right hand!
From my point of view... drupal core without this module is.. pointless. After a very long while of using it.. i simply can't imagine drupal without it. Togather they make an awesome job! Use it. It worth it!
This is a great tool! I use it for my cleaning websites and it really improved the metrics that i get! 10x!
A BIG BEER for creator of this module.
This plugin is used in 90% of my projects. I don't know what i've done without it. ITS MAGIC! big beer for owner!
All hopes starts from here.
Drupal is No.1 CMS based on the 2 modules. one is Views and another is CCK. If this tow modules are not there nop hope for No.1
Thanks to Dries.
A must need module!
i've done a lot of great things with this module. But if you want to undestand better this module or the help resource from description is not enough to you.. drupalize.me is the answer for you. That site is giving all you need about this (text / video tutorials). Just go there and search content construction kit.
really helpful at the end.. :)
If u really discover where to put and how to use it.. is really great. For me was very hard.. i'm noob on drupal.
It takes me some time to find how awesome can be this plugin. Documentation was really good. - not for those who don;t know english like me :))
Considerably, the article is really the best on that worthw hile topic.leather-bag
Many Needed Features
This module is really great and as it had many needed features, Most of CCK has moved to core in the Drupal 7 version and it shows how much this module is useful and what abilities it has.
This module defines Drupal
I have to say, this module really defines Drupal to me. Anytime someone asks me why Drupal is so special, I give example based on CCK
Every Drupal website should have this module.
The ability to create your own fields and let users fill out forms with the information that you need to get is invaluable. If you know CSS, this module's worth is almost doubled since you can style your fields and fit them nicely into your theme. There is plenty of documentation on cck.
Must have for any Drupal website.
This has become an essential module for me.
Very nice features but it's a pain to manage when dealing with CCK + input formats, especially concerning line breaks. I also dislike how they "correct" your HTML and add what they think should be the right tabbing, spacing, closing tags where they don't need to be closed, adding paragraphs where you want line breaks, etc.
thanks for this great module. it´s a must have module.
not easy for beginners.
This is definitely one of the most necessary modules for your drupal installation.
Content Construction Kit (CCK)
its a great module thank you so much
You cant really live without
Together with the other must have module "views", you really cant live without this one. Will be merged into core into Drupal 7.
Essential if you want custom content data
Using CCK together with Views gives you a really good platform to create whatever you like (CCK) and display it however you want (Views). A must-have.
Many people says Drupal would not be Drupal without these two modules and I guess that is true even though I use CCK and Views less often the more I learn about coding in Drupal by using different hooks.
If you are going to use CCK however, which I truly recommend, I suggest that you do NOT reuse the same fields in different content types. It will decrease the performance by extra database table joining.
What you should do to prevent this is to set the content type's name as prefix of the field name, thus all fields in the content type will be stored in the same database table.
Any drupal developer who wants to do more than publish blogs or static pages will want to download this module.
I have created over a dozen different content types on my site. You can view them here: http://cmstips.org
Think fields, not modules
The novice coming to drupal is searching for modules. Yet, drupal's real power is creating new content types with CCK, adding a few fields here & there (choose your field modules wisely) then add views. This provides the most stable solution that will be easy to upgrade over time.
The big difference with other CMS's
This module is the big difference with other CMS's. Being able to create your own content types is something I use all the time. Every site has its own specific needs. CCK can fulfill those needs by creating specific content types. With the many extra CCK modules almost any content type can be created.
Using it for the first timeis not easy, but try it a few times on a local testsite and you'll feel very comfortable creating content types.
Required. Simply Required
I don't know how anyone builds Drupal sites without this module! The combination of this with Contemplate is an amazing advancement.
A must have
This module has too few ratings. It is so important for Drupal and just a must have. Easy to use and full of features.
Second most important Drupal module
After Views, this is what you need to really harness Drupal's potential.
CCK helps make Drupal the most flexible, powerful open source CMS solution.
one of the best
No site is complete without it.definately should be in the core .
CCK is a core module, don't leave home without it.
Without CCK and Views drupal just wouldn't have had the take up it's got.
Awesome module, and it's just the tip of the ice berg, there are so many modules that work in conjuntion with this it's just mind blowing.
I don't know where I'd be without CCK. It's essential. Glad to see that it is part of Drupal 6, and I'm sure there is more great functionality to come. Complex at times, but great for getting sites built.
In the top ten of all time
Another module that allows the average drupal user to take full advantage of the brilliant code inside the drupal core. With CCK -- and the scores of modules that have been written to work with it -- you can really display your creativity. I've been using it for years, and can report that installation, setup, configuration and upgrades are smooth and trouble free. Be prepared to have to spend some time learning all about the capabilities; scan the drupal forums for hints if you don't find them in the documentation. You will not be disappointed. This is a true work of brilliance.
An Elegant Solution
This is, simply put, the greatest thing since Drupal itself (and views). New drupalers, this module takes a bit to understand, both in terms of purpose and function; however, once the theming layer is understood, the need for a module such as this becomes very apparent.
CCK is a must have, but usability and documentation are bad.
Even the name is confusing to newbies. What the heck is "CCK"? They don't get it. And the name doesn't explain that your building NODES TYPES...
When you start building there's no intuitive way to see what's going on. Take a cue from Views2 and show the resulting fields below as you build them so people have some concept what they are doing.
Give some examples.
Change the name to something other than an acronym.
Powerful but a bit comfusing (5.x version)
This is probably the best and most useful module ever made for Drupal. It is extremely powerful, and together with many of the modules for CCK to add more fields, and options this is really a KILLER.
The drawback is usability. It took me quite some time reading the documentation and searching the forums until I really began to understand how this thing works. It was acctually thanks to some video tutorials on CCK that began using it.
I think the whole process of creating a new CCK content type is bit cumbersome. Especially the fact that first I have to create the content type, save it, and then i can start adding fields, then comes the configuration of the fields. And these steps aren't made easier with the quite advanced terminology.
This should be integrated in drupal
definitely the most helpful module around.
Makes custom content types much easier. Essential module.
Great but hard to use
The CCK module is probably my favorite module in terms of functionality, but I really don't like the interface.
I know I've used Drupal a lot, so I've gotten used to it, but it's still pretty confusing. Could be better.
but need more documentation
A motor, a chassis and the wheels
Lets have a look at a car:
- The motor is drupal
- The chassis is CCK
- The wheels is views.
With drupal alone, you can make loud noises, with CCK you can make the car comfortable, but with views you can drive!
CCK should be integrated into drupal core as views should be! Both together make it comfortable and easy to create new content types and collect and present data out of the database. But the user interface of both modules needs to be ajaxified asap!
I, too, would like to change the sequence and appearance of all fields, not only of the user created fields!
Spend some time with this one
This is pretty much a must-have module, but using it can be confusing and frustrating. Be careful when installing CCK contrib modules. Try to stick with core CCK functionality if you can.
a must have for any site
This module is a must have for any site. Everything ends up being a content type in Drupal, so this makes those more dynamic and powerful.
CCK is good but can be Better
Content Construction Kit as the name suggest is a module which lets you create custom content except of the regular blog, story and page mainly. It is a must module for any dynamic website that is not centered on a single service like blog or forum. If you need your content to be managed and accessed properly creating various content type as per need is a must with views you can work wonders with the created content.
But CCK is not all good a problem I see is the inability to remove the body field, in some cases we might need a content type that doesn't require a long body field like say a link with no description but title only. So these things can be updated in the next release of CCK. To sum up it is a must have module not that easy to start with but when you get used to it, its hard to survive without.
Must have for any of my sites
I'm sure everyone knows of or about CCK, in combination with views and the addon modules for CCK it is one of the most useful modules available to me.
Until views and cck are ported to Drupal 6.1, I wouldn't even think about upgrading to it.
CCK should be first on your list
If you are building any site that uses more than just title and body in your node, CCK is a must have. Together with Views, you can slice and dice your content with Views and present any kind of content.
