The Drupal 8 Configuration Read-only module allows you to lock down some of your environments to prevent users from making configuration changes. This lets you use the Drupal 8 configuration management system to push up all your changes, while preventing you from changing any settings, content types, views, or any other configuration on your production website.
The Drupal 8 Editor Advanced Link Module allows you to specify additional attributes when creating links in your content. This makes it easy to add a CSS class, an ID, open the link in a new window, or even specify a rel="nofollow" tag. The module is very easy to use, but there is a small trick to getting it set up. Watch the video to see how it's done and start customizing your links in no time!
The Drupal 8 Editor File Upload Module is a great module for allowing your content editors to upload files directly in your website content. If you have ever needed to upload a file, and then include a link to that file, then the Editor File Upload module will be useful. Rather than having to upload the file manually using FTP or through another module, then having to go back to create a link in your content to that file, this module lets you do it all in one step.
The Drupal 8 Image Widget Crop Module is a handy module for allowing your content editors on your website to crop images after they upload them. Have you ever uploaded an image on a website and had it automatically crop the image for you in a way that just looks wrong? This module solves that problem!
In this episode, we cover the Drupal 8 Contact Storage Export Module. This episode covers a module that adds additional functionality to the Contact Storage Module (which we covered in episode 213). This module allows you to export your contact form submissions to a CSV file. It's a simple module that serves a very specific purpose. If you need to export your contact form submissions, this is how you do it!
In this episode, we cover the Drupal 8 Linkit Module. This module extends the link functionality of your Drupal 8 WYSIWYG editor (like CKeditor) to make it easier to link to other pages on your website. Rather than having to go find a page on your website you would like to link to, copy the URL, and paste it in the link field, this module allows you to do it in one step!
In this episode, we cover the Drupal 8 Contact Storage Module. This module extends the Drupal 8 core contact module by saving the contact entries in the database. This makes it easy to go back and view, edit, or delete any of the contact form submissions on your Drupal 8 site. It's a handy little module that can save you from needing to install a more fully featured form module (like Webform or Entity Forms).
In this episode, we will cover five different ways to download and install modules in Drupal 8. Yes, that’s right, FIVE different ways!
