Before you throw a bunch of content at Craft, stop for a minute and learn how to approach content and Craft together. We'll cover the steps necessary to understand how to model content in Craft.
I am the creator of CraftQuest, a web developer, and former software team manager. I spend most of my time improving CraftQuest with code and courses. When I'm not in front of the computer, I spend my time with my family, and running on the roads and trails of Austin, TX.
The Craft Mindset is made up of the following videos:
|1||Picturing Craft||Before you throw a bunch of content at Craft, stop for a minute and learn how to approach content and Craft together.||03:55|
|2||The Pieces of Craft, Part 1||In Lesson 2 we'll review Sections, Fields, and Field Types. We'll take our boxes of content and turn them into Sections in Craft. We'll then identify the different content types in those boxes and create corresponding our Fields and Field Types.||05:03|
|3||The Pieces of Craft, Part 2||We’ll continue going from generic content terms to Craft-specific implementations. In Lesson 2 we turned boxes of content into Sections. In Lesson 3 we'll continue with Entries and Templates, the last two pieces of the puzzle.||04:02|
|4||Putting the Pieces Together||We wrap up the course by taking everything we've learned, putting it together, and applying it. Onscreen, I'll walk through my own process for planning content implementation in Craft. I'll review sample content and create a plan for Sections, Fields, and Field Types.||25:01|
