We have a current intranet page that lists documents, categorized by group. For example, there is a heading called "Budget," and it has one document listed under it. Another heading called "Equipment" has three documents listed under it. (See attached file: document listing.)
I made this page as follows: in Drupal, I created a new "Basic Page" and manually transferred these files to the server (not by uploading them through Drupal), and then I created HTML within the page to link to these files. The files are all stored within a folder called "forms." (See attached file: HTML.)
As you can see, there is nothing special about this page.
For me, this page works fine. However, other people within my organization -- who are not technically savvy -- want to be able to add/delete/change documents on this page through Drupal, without being technically inclined.
Therefore, I need to properly use Drupal so that files can be added/deleted/changed by regular users.
My understanding is that I need to use the Views module. I have it installed, but I don't even know where to begin.
The work would involve writing a very brief (but complete), step-by-step how-to on how to create a new Drupal 7 page with the following requirements:
--Uses current site template
--Allows users to add/change/delete documents using a simple interface without using PHP/HTML/CSS
--Outputs the above HTML (such as the DIV, H2, and UL elements)
--Groups documents into categories, such as "Budget" and "Equipment," just like in the current page
So, in short, I want the end result to be *exactly* the same page that we currently have, except the new page needs to correctly use Drupal so that non-savvy users can add/remove/change documents.
