Webinar Details:


Drupal and WordPress can churn out exactly the HTML you want when you customize your template files, but they are more of a factory than an experimentation lab. More and more teams are using static style guides (where HTML is easier to edit) to figure out the markup they want before porting it to Drupal or WordPress.

In this webinar, we will review how complex, content rich sites can be prototyped in a style guide and then implemented in a CMS. Bill Sprowl of Palantir.net will walk us through real projects, including one for the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. We will see how Palantir's clients can edit content with Drupal's paragraphs module or WordPress' Advanced Custom Fields and still get a custom-looking end result.

Here’s what you’ll learn:


  • Website Scope

    Discover new types of content that the site will need to accommodate, while auditing existing content

  • Style Guides

    Before knowing what the CMS implementation will be, use a style guide to figure out what elements the final site will need.

  • Template Customizations

    Overcome the challenges of combining Drupal or WordPress with the HTML you want.

  • Content Editor Control

    Ensure you have an adaptable editing experience for organizations that have content that changes structure.
