Over the years of progress in CMS website development services, websites have come a long way from being something reserved for coders, to being something that can be easily created by users through drag-and-drop interfaces.
You’ve probably heard or known about Drupal development services, for the CMS platform which has gone head-to-head with the dominant WordPress platform at times. With the open-source platform’s 8th iteration, the Drupal 8; things are well set to change.
How Drupal is useful in Content Authoring
Drupal 8 uses an enhanced layout builder for a content authoring experience better than ever before. For those writers and artists for whom a website layout is a canvas, the layout builder offers them exactly what they want, and help them to get things done the way they want to do it.
For instance, the CKEditor developed exclusively for Drupal 8 provides a WYSIWYG (What You See is What You Get) interface for easy drag-and-drop page building. While most users would be familiar with the button for text styles, links, and other elements, Drupal 8’s content authoring system brings in easily editable captions for images through the widgets feature.
While such features initially defined the success of platforms such as WordPress, Drupal is quickly catching up to the game with this update. Another useful advantage in content authoring for Drupal comes in the form of an In-Place Editor.
With the In-Place editor, Drupal allows instant editing of the website front-end right from the position of the elements itself. What this means is that you no longer need to go to and fro from the front-end to the back-end of a website to make changes.
The ability to edit the website’s layout instantly also offers another benefit. Users designing their websites can see in real time how the website looks with every shift and shuffle of content blocks.
Automatic Packing negates the need for authors to add in features manually, instead; it automatically detects and thoroughly analyzes the website and automatically bakes in, or packages a set of features that may be useful.
However, you’d still need support for Drupal Development Services. Here’s why?
Yes, the content authoring system in Drupal 8 is indeed amazing. But the problem with this system is that you’d still have no clue about implementing the back-end features. At the other end, i.e., the back-end lies the real benefits with Drupal.
One of these is the relative ease of developing a custom app over the website. Today, web apps are commonplace and many businesses such as Alibaba have tremendously benefit-ted from custom app development. Have a understanding of job portal with drupal integration.
