The CCK module is one of Drupal's most popular, contributed modules, and for a good reason. It gives the administrator the ability to create custom content types as well as custom fields that are essential for creating a web site that manages specific forms of content. We will use this module to create the structure required to enter content for each recipe in our Drupal web site. But before we can start adding custom content to our Drupal installation, it is important to first download and install the Content Construction Kit from http://www.drupal.org/project/cck. Once we have this module within our modules folder, we can then navigate to Administer | Modules, where we will select all of the following modules within CCK:
Once we have all of the CCK modules selected, we can then click on the Save Configuration button at the bottom of the page to install CCK into our web site. Now that we have CCK installed, let's create our Recipe content type.
