Paragraphs is an increasingly popular module for handling content in Drupal 8. Paragraphs works in a similar way to content fields, but also provides a wide range of options for the design, layout and grouping of your content.
Instead of putting all their content in one WYSIWYG body field, end-users can choose on-the-fly between pre-defined Paragraph Types independent from one another. Paragraph Types can be anything from a simple text block or image to a complex and configurable slideshow.
If you use Paragraphs, you can give your site's content creators a tremendous amount of power and flexibility to create the layouts that they want.
Robert learned HTML/CSS back in 2008 when he decided to start a film review site, and he continued adding to his site file-by-file the old-fashioned way for a year. When he asked a web developer friend how to build a site that "automatically lists content on the homepage and stuff," he was pointed to Drupal.
Since then, Robert has continued to build his experience with the CMS by using it on his own projects and by managing other brands' pre-existing Drupal sites. In doing so, he has learned some of the best ways to use the tools Drupal has available--and what mistakes to avoid.
In his spare time, Robert trains Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and works on too many side programming projects. He is also the author of two books.
