How to Enhance Your Visual Page-Building Experiences in Drupal

June 06, 2024

Eastern Standard Founder and Technology Director Jim Keller presented this topic at DrupalCampNJ at Princeton University on March 15, 2024.

When it comes to building web pages, versatile visual page builders like Elementor and Gutenberg from WordPress have taken center stage, while no-code solutions like Webflow continue to gain ground. Content managers are drawn to their flexibility and seemingly endless array of add-on blocks and features.

By comparison, Drupal’s site-building experience feels antiquated and clunky (at least right out of the box).

In his session, Jim discussed a variety of techniques and modules you can use to enhance the Drupal page-editing experience without compromising (or only minimally compromising) your design and content architecture.

You’ll learn:

— What the fundamental building blocks of your Drupal site should be — from Layout Builder to Layout Paragraphs, Blocks, Entities & more

— How to design for success by balancing design integrity & content editing flexibility

— How to determine the right blend of layout flexibility & content portability

— How to scale your content model in terms of both data & presentation
