In these tutorials, Tom Geller helps new Drupal designers change the layout and design elements of their sites, control visitor interactions (including comments), arrange content in user-friendly "views," and expand the site's capabilities beyond what's available in core Drupal with Drupal modules. In all the steps you'll learn best practices to ensure your sites remain streamlined, secure, and up to date.

We'll greatly expand the range of content on your site, as well as how it's categorized, presented, and delivered.
You'll also see how to organize content into logical structures known as books, and you'll see how to make it easier for users to move around on your site with menus and content categories. This is the second Drupal 8 Essentials course. They're arranged in a sequence to lead you to complete management of a dynamic, attractive, full-featured Drupal website.
