With "A Simple Timeline" contribution module in conjunction with the Drupal core module "Views" you can present a nicely looking and well organized vertical timeline of Drupal entities. It could be, for example, teasers. This is exactly what you will learn in this post.
For the purpose of this tutorial, I will use a sequence of the Summer Olympic Games of this century. Let's get started!
Several people asked me if I have ready to use paragraph configurations, with styling and so on. It became apparent to me that a lot of small projects would like to have some components ready for them, so I went on and started this project.
At the moment, the project provides 3 modules:
Drupal core announcements: 8.4.0 release candidate phase begins week of September 4; no Drupal 8.3.x or 7.x patch release planned
The release candidate phase for the 8.4.0 minor release begins the week of September 4. Starting that week, the 8.4.x branch will be subject to patch release restrictions. Closer to the 8.4.0 release on October 4, we will limit the changes to critical bugfixes and other high-priority changes. You can help by ensuring that the issue priority is set correctly for major-priority issues, and that the branch field is set to 8.5.x (for disruptive changes) or 8.4.x (for patch-release-safe bugfixes) as appropriate.
8.4.0 provides stable, production-ready releases for several modules that were previously experimental, including Workflows, Datetime Range, Layout Discovery, Media, and Inline Form Errors. The release also includes several critical bug fixes and many other improvements for REST, content moderation, authoring experience, performance, and automated testing. You can read a detailed list of improvements in the announcement of alpha1.
Minor versions may include changes to user interfaces, translatable strings, themes, internal APIs like render arrays and controllers, etc. (See the Drupal 8 backwards compatibility and internal API policy for details.) Developers and site owners should test the release candidate to prepare for these changes.
8.5.x will remain open for new development during the 8.4.x release candidate phase.
Drupal 8.4.0 will be released on October 4th, 2017.
September 6 is also a monthly core patch (bug fix) release window for Drupal 8 and 7, but no patch release is planned. This is also the final bug fix release window for 8.3.x (meaning 8.3.x will not receive further development or support aside from its final security release window on September 20). Drupal 8 sites should plan to update to Drupal 8.4.0 on October 4.
I had a devil of a time figuring out where captioning was coming from on my entity embeds.
Another team member had set it up, and I was just kind of baffled as to why captions were being offered on my entity embed forms.
It turns out that if you turn on captioning, you just get it for free on all of your embeds, and it's not configurable.
But... I don't want it for free!
Bah. Humbug. This free software doesn't have the features I think it should.
Alright, so here's how you turn off captioning:
This is part 2 of our series on developing a Decoupled Drupal Client Application with Ember. If you haven't yet read Part 1, it would be best to review Part1 first, as this article continues on with adding authentication and login form to our application. Shortly, we will explore how to create a new article but for that we will need to have authentication working so that we can pass in our credentials when posting our new article.
