Drupal 7 - Before You Install

Please go through the checklists below to make sure you are ready to install the Cloudwords for Drupal module.

  2. In the upper right corner, click Settings > My Account.
  3. Click the API tab.
  4. Click the Generate Access Key button. Take note of this.

 

B) Testing with Cloudwords Production Account

  • Generate an API key:
  1. Log into your Cloudwords Production account.
  2. In the upper right corner, click Settings > My Account.
  3. Click the API tab.

Tasks In Drupal

  • Confirm you are using Drupal version 7.x. The Cloudwords module for Drupal does not work with previous versions of Drupal (6 or earlier).
  • Confirm the following modules are installed in Drupal:
  • Optionally, install the Internationalization module. If you choose to enable Internationalization, be sure to enable the corresponding Cloudwords i18n components and install the dependent variable module.
  • Install the PHP cURL library. (For example, on Ubuntu, the command is sudo apt-get install php5-curl.)
  • Disable the Entity Translation module.
  • Enable the View UI module (installed as part of Views, listed above).

Please verify that you have set the private upload directory for your Drupal instance. In Drupal, click Configuration. In the Media section, click File System, and ensure that the Private file system path field has a valid value.  

  • To keep up-to-date on any issues and fixes related to the module, create a user account on Drupal.org (if you haven't done so already) and then subscribe to the feed.
