How to get added flexibility in your Drupal core block system to allow placing discrete pieces of content (Workshop)

Wilfred Arambhan

"Drupal core comes with a flexible block system to allow placing discrete pieces of content, such as a listing of who is online or an advertisement, within various page regions.

The session will explore core layout builder's extensions such as
1. Layout builder restrictions: Set which blocks and which layouts should be available for placement in Layout Builder.
2. Layout Builder Styles: Select from a list of styles and apply to Layout Builder blocks and sections.
3. Layout Builder Modal: This module lets you add and configure existing blocks in a modal in the Layout Builder UI."
