One of the most striking features of Drupal is the Weight module, since it provides control and versatility to many of the platforms that are created in this environment. “This option adds weight to the types of nodes enabled,” the company explained in its documentation.
“Least weight nodes will sit at the top of the lists, while heavier items will sink to the bottom of the lists. This is useful for ordering non-chronological nodes like bios, ecommerce products or whatever you want and for ordering nodes on the front page”, they added.
This Weight module is just one of the data sorting options that Drupal offers, since you can also sort by date of creation.
One way to organize Drupal user roles is through the Weight module. “Role Weights provides some utility functions to access user role weights for other modules that require this functionality (such as Path Access ), as well as some additional tokens for user role weights”, Drupal detailed in an article.
With this, what is achieved is to assign a specific weight to each user role, which will determine the permissions and responsibilities that each user will have in a platform created in Drupal. You can even organize the modules installed in Drupal by means of the weight.
