The website loading speed is a very important aspect in the user's perception of the portal. Then how can you speed up the loading of a website that has a lot of media or iframes?

The standard method of managing Drupal's display mode may be too limited in some cases. If you want to efficiently create differentiated views used when listing terms or content related to the terms, you can try Layout Builder.

When creating a website whose editors will be working on content with photos, a problem often arises: how to manage the images so that the editor doesn’t have to manually edit them when they want to publish the same content with a different look?

For text or date fields, we will use different formatters. And for images?

Modern websites require modern solutions for their editors. Nowadays, a plain WYSIWYG text editor is often not enough.

They were confident in their movements and quickly got to where they needed to go, or annoyed they reached the simplest places after many redirects. If the second description fits your experience, you’re about to discover a way that prevents you from having to have all the paths in your head. Let me present the Admin Toolbar!

For laying out content on a website, Drupal standardly uses a single body field that takes advantage of the WYSIWYG capabilities and is available immediately after installation of the CKEditor. This solution is easy to use but not flexible enough to be suitable in every case. For more advanced layouts, we can use the functionality prepared by the community in the Paragraphs module.

When creating content for a website, it is sometimes necessary to plan its publication later down the line. However, taking care of it manually can be both time-consuming and inconvenient. This is when Scheduler comes in handy – a Drupal module that will help you automate this process. Using it will allow us, among other things, to schedule the publication of content for a specific date and time.
