Config Pages for Easier Custom Site Configuration

Many customized Drupal sites include custom functionality, and that custom functionality may require configuration from developers, site editors, or site administrators. Writing custom configuration forms, however, can be a thankless task.

The Config Pages module allows developers to build configuration pages through Drupal's admin UI rather than in custom code, and control access to those pages through Drupal's permission system. The result is quicker development time for developers and a better administrative interface for site administrators.

This session will introduce the module and describe use cases for how it might make common development and administrative tasks easier. It will use examples from Bryn Mawr College's website, which relies heavily on this module to create happier and more efficient web team members.
