(Building a website with Drupal 8)
 
Line 1: Line 1:
The intent of this page is to allow conf organisers to know who's expected at the airport when.

{{Trail|Programme|Tutorials|Tutorials/Drupal8 outta the box}}
  
You might also be able to use the info below to connect up with people who are on the same flight as you, arrange taxi shares, and so on, so '''leave some contact info''' in the entries that you create. Remember, there is '''no free transport from the airport''' provided by the conference this year. See [[Getting_to_Auckland#Airport_to_venue_transfers|Airport to venue transfers]] for more information.
 
  
===Arrivals===  
+
= Planning to build a website =
  
Order the entries below by scheduled '''time of arrival''' in Auckland. ''Please use 24 hour clock format (hh:mm)'' and ''Auckland time!''
+
We won't be going through this section in detail in the tutorial.  We'll be building a sample site with a lot of this thinking already done. But if you want to use your own sample content, have a think about these things and come prepared!
  
==== Tuesday 6 Jan ====

Or if you want to choose your own dummy content, rather than use the samples provided... here's some fun sites to peruse.

=== Planning Tools ===
 +
There's a range of tools out there to help you plan your site.  (know any others? Add them here.)

 +
== Join the community ==
 +
We'll be working with Drupal8.  The training sites we're using were built against HEAD late last week.  So they're a little bit behind the bleeding edge, and they're very much in BETA.  So we're likely to hit some rough edges.  If you do, report them.  To do that, you'll need to have an account on Drupal.org
 +
 
 +
 
 +
=== Go to https://www.drupal.org/user/register ===
 +
 
 +
It looks like this.

== Building a website with Drupal 8 ==

 +
=== Basic site configuration ===
 +
[[File:D8otb-siteinfo.png|right]]
 +
* Site name
 +
* Site slogan
 +
* Email address
 +
* Default front page, and error pages
 +
 
 +
=== Nodes and other entities ===
 +
 
 +
==== Default content types ====
 +
 
 +
* Article
 +
* Basic Page
 +
 
 +
Go to SITEURL/node/add to add content
 +
 
 +
==== Custom content types ====
 +
 
 +
Go to SITEURL/admin/structure/types/add
 +
 
 +
==== Users ====
 +
 
 +
* anon

 +
=== Menus ===
 +
[[File:d8otc-menus.png|right|400px]]
 +
We get a few menus out of the box
 +
 
 +
But we can also add menus of our own
 +
 
 +
=== Views ===
 +
 
 +
Views.  The single most popular module for previous versions of Drupal, is now in core. It's a powerhouse. But complex. We'll start simple.
 +
Views is a list maker, a query generator. It lets you slice and dice your content in all sorts of wonderful ways.

Planning to build a website

We won't be going through this section in detail in the tutorial. We'll be building a sample site with a lot of this thinking already done. But if you want to use your own sample content, have a think about these things and come prepared!

Or if you want to choose your own dummy content, rather than use the samples provided... here's some fun sites to peruse.

Words

Pictures

Purpose

What job will this site have?

  • sell stuff?
  • build a community?
  • documentation?
  • record an event?


Audience

Who will visit the website?

  • Personas
  • Demographics
  • Language / Geography
  • Devices / Browsers


Content

Getting the information architecture right from the start is important.

  • Content Modelling
  • Navigation
  • Search
  • Taxonomy

This is the stuff your website is all about. Here's some resources on creating compelling content for the web.

Style / Design / Mockups / Wireframes

We're using D8 Outta the box, so we'll be using Bartik. Not doing a lot of design, but still, need to think about colour, images, logo.

  • Logo
  • Colour
  • Images
  • Layout

Planning Tools

There's a range of tools out there to help you plan your site. (know any others? Add them here.)

Join the community

We'll be working with Drupal8. The training sites we're using were built against HEAD late last week. So they're a little bit behind the bleeding edge, and they're very much in BETA. So we're likely to hit some rough edges. If you do, report them. To do that, you'll need to have an account on Drupal.org


Go to https://www.drupal.org/user/register

It looks like this.

We get a few menus out of the box

But we can also add menus of our own

Views

Views. The single most popular module for previous versions of Drupal, is now in core. It's a powerhouse. But complex. We'll start simple. Views is a list maker, a query generator. It lets you slice and dice your content in all sorts of wonderful ways.
