Modules and themes contributed by the community are valuable tools for extending Drupal beyond its built-in potential, and are available on the flagship Drupal.org website. To find these "contrib" projects by keyword, use the search form located at the top of every page on that site. You can utilize its "Refine your search" options to focus your inquiry on the project pages of modules or themes; otherwise, most of the search results will comprise postings in issue queues and forums. Nonetheless, consider exploring them, because they often point to resources unmentioned on the project pages.
