Webdesigners like full screen slideshows on their frontpage

This tutorial deals with the full screen slideshow in the Drupal 8 Adaptive Theme and Flexslider module.

Let's start...

Installation of the theme see AT Tootls module.

Today, 12/10/2017, I have just screened the 4053th module. The last one.. it seems. I spent months on it and it gave a boost to the depth and breadth of my lessons. There were 163 pages each with 25 modules. I have withheld 272 that I found interesting. One more useful than the other.

There are forms, displays, image galleries,... that are written in pure HTML, CSS and Javascript code. Sometimes they are so nice that you want to use them in your Drupal site. Of can not use the field structure from Drupal for these cases.

If you work with a reference field (content, user, taxomomy,..) you can choose from a list of items. In the display you see the referring title, with or without link.

What if you want more than the title of the reference field? In a view it is easy. A relation makes it possible.

This contribution deals with automatically generated content.

1) Default values

Take a field (eg image field to make a banner on each node, or a piece of text) en set content default.

Composer auteur: Dirk

You need composer to run some Drupal 8 modules. For some people this is scary... Ik have hundreds of students who chose a CMS in order not to use code... Now this seems far away.

Putty is an open source Linux program for accessing the server. Something like Filezilla, but with Linux code. It requires SSH access. With Putty, you can use Composer. Composer is essential for Drupal 8.

Drupal has content types, fields, field collections, views, relations, filters.... For a complex site it is a challenge to find the right structure.

Uninstall modules auteur: Dirk

You can add modules to your Drupal 8 site if the update module is active... Modules you don't want to use any more can not be set unactive, like in Drupal 7. The reason is that unactive modules can leave something behind in the database. You have to uninstall them.

A beautiful Drupal 8 one page theme. There is more than one page possible. The home page is mostly one page and the rest is normal. The structure of these kind of themes have a lot of blocks. Every block has his own CSS and structure.
