In this edition of 3 Takeaways, our Business Development Strategist, Nelson Harris, reviews Drupal 8 and how the latest improvements help get more out of the box, leverage mobile, and upgrade smoothly.
Hi, I’m Nelson Harris, Business Development Strategist at Elevated Third. A question I get a lot from people is “what’s new and interesting about Drupal 8, and why might I upgrade.” There are a lot of reasons why you might want to upgrade to Drupal 8 but I’m just going to list three of them.
Takeaways #1: First, you get more out of the box.
There are a lot of useful modules in Drupal 8 core that have been built in. Things like views, multilingual, a WYSIWYG editor, and more types of fields. This means you can spend less time configuring and installing modules, and more time working on your site.
Takeaway #2: Second of all, mobile is in it’s DNA.
Built-in themes are all responsive and adapt well to different screen sizes. Tables will scale, and the new admin toolbar is really good on mobile devices. Chances are, you’re probably watching this video on the screen of your mobile device right now, so you can imagine why mobile might be important.
Takeaway #3: Finally, it’s built to be more future proof.
Where an upgrade from 7 to 8 or 6 to 7 requires scraping your codebase and starting all over from scratch, Drupal 8 is designed to go from 8 to 9 and 9 to 10 more seamlessly and more like an update patch as opposed to starting over. An investment in Drupal 8 really means that you're investing in your website because it's going to be easier to upgrade in the future.

Here is where we seek to bring awareness to Drupal modules running on less than 1% of reporting sites. Today we'll look at Timelogin, a module which restricts users, based on role, from logging in during certain times of the day.
