Most useful Drupal modules

I thought I would crosspost some of what I consider my most useful Drupal handout information from my demo and presentation for the UGADG. Of course, this doesn't include the demo part at the moment! Maybe I will screencapture that part and add it in later. Another thing for the todo list! Anyhow, you can see the handouts here

..and now to the top ten (plus):

the easiest way to use most of the widgets is just to create a new box, i.e., a block.

That particular widget, the youtube badge, I think I made at the youtube site.

I then went into my drupal installation, created a new block, and then dumped the code in. Simple!

This also works with, flickr, facebook badges, etc.

I wouldn't download a specific module for youtube, flickr, wordpress, etc. unless I wanted to add content via drupal to those sites. Other wise, I would just pull in content via the rss or the widget script.

this is a blogger site, but I pull content into my drupal via the feed.
