Description: This package is a collection of add-on formatters for various CCK fields. Each provided sub-module in this package should be a self-contained single formatter.
CCK fields support an arbitrary number of "formatters", swappable code that renders a field. In Drupal 6 these are essentially theme functions, although in Drupal 5 they are not always. It is possible for any module to define new formatters for field types it doesn't define itself, which creates a very powerful way to extend and theme a field in any of the myriad ways that a field can appear.
This module is an "incubator" for new field formatters. Because each formatter may have its own development cycle, there will probably not be stable releases of the entire suite. If a specific formatter gets particularly popular or requires a more full-featured release cycle, it should likely be spun off to its own project.
This suite is maintained by Palantir.net. If you want to submit another formatter module to be included, please contact Larry Garfield. If you maintain a CCK field and want to fold one of these formatters into the field module itself, contact the appropriate module author (or Larry if you aren't sure who that is).
