What is a node?

The current MMI website is based on Drupal technology. In this system, each piece of content is called a node. A node can be of different types, including events, news, opportunties, references, pages, book pages.

Each node is assigned a unique number, which can be used to access the content in question.

For example, this page is assigned node 6065 

Content can be accessed directly using either the node number, or the assigned URL.

For example, to get to this page, you can type one of the following into the address bar of a web browser:

http://marinemetadata.org/node/6065
