Drupal 8 Reimagined Authoring: How the Beautiful New Interface Makes it Fast and Fun to Create Content

November 12, 2015 1:00 pm

Drupal 8 brings more than 200 new and exciting features for both marketing and technical teams. The new Drupal 8 interface redefines ease of use for content authors, making it fast and fun to create and edit content on any device.

In our upcoming webinar, join Kevin O’leary, Director of Design at Acquia to get an overview and demo of the new enhancements, including:

  • Responsive Admin: A responsive toolbar that works on all devices, image uploading right from the editor, and fully responsive admin pages so you can create content from any device. Responsive tables, tabs, layouts and images.
  • Built in WYSIWYG: CKEditor 4 is now in Drupal core, along with several new features like paste from word, image captions, CKBlocks, improved source editor (that preserves your line breaks) as well as a drag drop toolbar configuration UI.
  • In place editing for all content: Now you can edit anything right on the page without using the edit form.
  • Redesigned Content Creation Page: Introducing a two column-view to reduce excessive scrolling and keep the focus on text, not the tools.

We will also talk about plans for additional functionality targeted for a Drupal 8.1 release including: drag-drop blocks, in-place layout swapping, a content modeling UI, and streamlined tools for sort, filter, search and autocomplete using Select2.
