Custom modules are just that -- custom. You need to create them (and put them in the sites/all/modules folder along with the contributed modules).

You can find all of the downloadable "contributed" modules on the drupal.org site at:

http://drupal.org/project/modules

Both types of modules need to be placed in the sites/all/modules (or similar area) in your installation. After they are placed there you can enable them in your site at:

http://your.site.name.here.com/admin/build/modules

I hope this answers your question. If not, let me know and I'll refine it! :)

The ones that are custom made will be under a different heading, not in the core modules, it depends on what heading the creator puts it in.

Are you looking for a way to identify modules that are neither core nor contrib?

If that's the case take a look at the modules info file, if they where downloaded from drupal there will be some data that was added by Drupal, custom modules do not have this.

another way to go is to your available updates page, custom modules will be grayed out because drupal couldn't find update information about them

Sorry about the delay in reply.

Yup, RobertPope and nanharbison are right. The code that will be missing will look like this:

 
; Information added by drupal.org packaging script on 2011-01-10
version = "6.x-3.5"
core = "6.x"
project = "webform"
datestamp = "1294652806"

Open in new window


(that's for the Webform module)

It would be missing for custom modules.

So:

- if the module is listed under the two Core categories, those are the ones bundled with Drupal.
- if they are listed under other categories (and have the code above) they are contributed modules that were downloaded from Drupal.org.
- if the code is missing, it's custom.

On admin/build/modules page, the two sections that house core modules are called "Core - Optional" and "Core - Required". Anything not contained in either of these areas is considered a contributed, or custom module.
