1. Drupal's field formatters offer site builders lots of ways to display their content, but sometimes a few more options are needed.

    This session will ooks at the Field Formatter Settings API module for Drupal 7, which gives developers an easy way to add new settings to field formatters. Andrew takes a quick tour through a range of helpful little modules which site builders can use to tweak their content output.

    Custom field labels, extra text-trimming options, HTML5 data attributes, limiting multiple values... there's a module for all of these! To round things off Andrew looks forward to Drupal 8, which takes things a little further. With the new Field UI API and Form Display Modes, extra settings can be applied to field widgets too!
