Designing and building for the editor experience

Andreas Sahle, Daniel Nolde

The editor experience is somehow a blind spot in a lot of projects.
There might exist a great design for the “frontend”, a lot of efforts go into building a good user experience for site visitors and we also put a lot of work in functionality, but very often we are missing out on usability for editors.
There are a lot of sites that are used extensively by editors and for them the “frontend” is the “backend”. The out of the box functionality just isn’t enough, to make them love to work with Drupal for content management.
In this session we want to show, what modules and techniques you can use right now to design and build for a way better editor friendly interface.

  • Common pain points in content management
  • Modules you can use to build an editor friendly backend
  • Strategies for the “intuitive” interface
