understand everything before you can build anything
To publish something, the user has to create a content type, add fields,
create some content, configure a view mode, build a view, and possibly
make the view the front page.
To add a block to a page, the user has to click Structure > Blocks > Add
block; access the block management page; set the initial settings, the
regional settings and the visibility settings...
UMN Usability Testing 2015 issues
• The inability to see the work in a realtime preview was frustrating.
• Operations are in the reverse order from the way users conceptualize
it. (structuring taxonomy/content/etc.)
• Default frontpage settings and promoted content leads to users to
feel like “whoops! I broke the homepage”
Now that both CCK and
Views are in Drupal 8
we can finally start to integrate them for a better UX
You can click anything on the page, edit its configuration in-place, and
watch it take effect immediately
