5.8 A Couple More Display Changes

Now we are going to go back and make some of the same changes that we made to the Speakers content type and apply some of the same ideas to both the User Groups and Conferences types.

5.8 A Couple More Display Changes

Now that we edited the content type for speakers that had Derek Jensen in there for now, I wanna move on to the other two. And since we're gonna make very similar changes in those displays, I wanna just show them to you all at once. So let's begin by looking at the National Security Conference. This is really just some basic information here. I think for the most part it's gonna be okay. I would like to change some of the fields in here to kind of mirror how we did for the speakers. Which is basically make some of these things in line and maybe just where the image is located and things of that nature. And the same is going to hold true for The Security Dudes. Once again, it's a lot of similar content. Maybe just inline a couple of them and move a couple things around. So let's go back to structure. We're gonna go to Content types, and let's just start with Conferences. And we're gonna manage the display. And let's move some things around again. Let's make the logo kind of come up to the beginning here a little bit. I don't think we're going to need to say that this is a logo, so let's leave that out. And then once again, let's not make this the original image I think medium worked well for the speaker. So let's go ahead an update that. Then we'll go ahead and add the description. I think we can leave that hidden. That should be fine. Conference Date, I think these all could be inline. Conference Date, Conference Website. But once again, Speakers and Sponsored By and Conference Topics, those are all referenced entities. I think we could leave those above and have those come along, and all the content show below them, I think that should be fine. And then let's also go back to content types and also edit the user groups, we'll do the display on this one. And same kind of thing, let's just kind of do the same kind of information here. We don't need to say that this is a description, I think that's pretty obvious. The website, we'll make that Inline. Contact Email, Inline. Group Contact, Inline. And then the Experience. And the conference and the sponsored, we'll leave that above. I think that should be fine as well. So let's go ahead and save both of those changes. And we'll go back to our content and just take a quick look and see how they're starting to look. So we have the National Security Conference, that's starting to look a little better. Once again, we're getting this little issue here. And I'm gonna show you a trick to be able to tweak some of these layouts. Because a lot of this that's happening here, while with things look a little different like this, are typically styles that are defined within the themes. And those are typically editable in a couple of different ways. And I'm gonna show you a way that I kind of like to be able to get in and make changes to that. So, I’ll show you that in a little bit. But I do remember now, I don't like the way this date looks. So we'll modify that. And let's also take a look at The Security Dudes. And that list is looking pretty good as well. So I think, overall, I'm pretty happy with the basic structure of this. So let's go back to Structure. Let's go back into Content types. And we'll grab Conferences here, manages the display. And let's just change the way that this date is showing up. So let's modify this, and select the date format. And once again, I kinda like the default long date. Once again, you can pick anything that you want, it should be fine. So, as you can see, going through the process of adding content and then ultimately changing the way that it's displayed to the end user is a work in progress. And these things can change over time and ultimately you're going to see that you're gonna want to tweak things. You're gonna wanna change that way that things look. And over time you're gonna continue to evolve your website that way. And Drupal is a fantastic tool to allow you to be able to do that.
