Module of the Week

  • Administer User By Role - https://drupal.org/project/administerusersbyrole

This module allows site builders to set up fine-grained permissions for allowing users to edit and delete other users — more specific than Drupal Core's all-or-nothing 'administer users' permission. It also provides and enforces a 'create users' permission.

Module of the Week

Trasliteration - https://drupal.org/project/transliteration

Provides one-way string transliteration (romanization) and cleans file names during upload by replacing unwanted characters.

Generally spoken, it takes Unicode text and tries to represent it in US-ASCII characters (universally displayable, unaccented characters) by attempting to transliterate the pronunciation expressed by the text in some other writing system to Roman letters.
