Allows people to put content into an ordered grouping.

Nodequeue provides a simple drag-and-drop interface to manually order any queue.
Additionally, it allows nodes to be added and removed from queues without
requiring edit permissions for the node. Nodes can be added to queues either
from a queue management tab or by links on the node teaser.

Once a queue is set up, a new tab will appear on eligible nodes for eligible
users. This tab will allow the user--regardless of edit permissions--to add or
remove that node from the queue. Queue admins can view the nodes in the queue,
and can modify the order of items already in the queue. Items may also appear
in a nodes links area to add/remove them from the queue.

When a node is added to the queue, it is added to the back of the queue. If a
queue is full when a node is added, the front of the queue is removed.

Nodequeue has support for nodes with i18n Internationalizations.

Examples of uses for ordered groupings include:

  • To control the ontent in, and order of, a home page slideshow.
  • To highlight one particular node, as in a typical news site's Lead Article.
  • To create a block listing 5 posts that are deemed the most important.
  • To create a group of special posts, and then have a block on the home page
    that selects one of these randomly.
