Creating Pages

  • Todd Tomlinson

Abstract

Now that you have a general understanding of content types, blocks, views, and themes, you’re ready to start assembling pages on your website using a combination of each of those elements. A page may represent a single piece of content (for example, a news story about the first day at DrupalCon), or it may represent a landing page similar to the front page of Drupal.org. Each page on your site may vary in structure, thanks to the flexibility of the theme that you select for your site as well as the blocks mechanism and the ability to specify on which page (URL) a block is to be displayed. Using Views to create blocks provides a dynamic mechanism for extracting content along with static blocks created through the blocks interface. The combination of Drupal 8 tools provides a powerful mechanism for creating an awesome site.
