Intro To Drupal Drupal Vocabulary
Node - A piece of content in Drupal, typically corresponding to a single page on the site, that has a title, an optional body, and perhaps additional fields. Every node also belongs to a particular content type, and can additionally be classified using the taxonomy system. Examples of nodes are polls, stories, book pages and images.
Block - The boxes visible in the regions of a Drupal website. Most blocks are generated on-the-fly by various Drupal modules, but they can be created in the administer blocks area of a Drupal site.
Theme - A file or collection of files (PHP, INFO, CSS, JPG, GIF, PNG), which together determine the look and feel of a site. A theme contains elements such as the header, icons, block layout, etc
Module - Software (usually PHP and CSS) that extends Drupal features and functionality. Drupal distinguishes between core and contributed modules.
View - A contributed module which allows site developers a simple graphical interface for creating lists of various drupal objects; most notably users and nodes. Views permits selection of specific fields to display, filtration against various node attributes, choice of basic layout options (i.e. list, full nodes, teasers, etc.), and other more advanced features. Many Drupal sites use Views extensively.
