Welcome to our complete, free beginner class on building sites with Drupal 8. This class shows you how to create content, uses Views, add contact forms and choose themes.
In this 10 video class, you'll learn the entire process of building a site in Drupal 8 from creating content and views to managing layouts, themes and contact forms.
In this video, you'll set up a new Drupal site. You'll fill in your site information, check your status report and fix any warnings before we start our site.
We're going to plan our site and create the content types. We already have 'Article" and "Basic Page" content types.
Once you have Drupal 8 content types set up, your next step will be to add content. In this video, we'll start with a simple Article and then a more complex Review.
In this Drupal 8 video, Robert shows you how to use the Devel module to generate dummy content.
Now that we've plenty of Drupal content, we need to come up with a way to present and organize our content. We're going to do that with Views, one of the most popular features in Drupal 8.
In the previous video, we set up some basic Views in our Drupal 8 site. Now we're going to create some more sophisticated views, including lists that we can filter dynamically.
Once we have our content created in Drupal 8, the next step is to configure sidebar information. For this, we'll use Blocks which are smaller pieces of information or functionality.
Once we're taken care of our Drupal 8's site's content and views, we're going to turn our attention to the homepage.
Let's allow people to contact us. By default, Drupal provides us with a contact form. We can use the Contact forms module to create more sophisticated forms.
