Drupal expert Lee Rowlands recently shared insights on enhancing website interactivity by creating a cards section using the Layout Builder on the PreviousNext website. The tutorial addresses transitioning from traditional paragraph-based models to a more dynamic layout plugin approach, promoting ease of use in content management and design customization. Key to the process is the introduction of two distinct block-content types for internal and external links, facilitating streamlined content curation with fields for titles, images, teaser text, and URLs. Lee outlines the necessary steps to define a layout plugin, from setting up the initial YAML configuration to integrating a custom class for additional title settings in the layout. This method not only improves the user experience by simplifying content arrangement via drag-and-drop but also enhances the visual appeal and functionality of the cards section.
