With Drupal 8 on the horizon, now is a good time to start using it. The best way to learn the new version is to build something with it.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be publishing a series of tutorials teaching you how to create a blog in Drupal 8. The aim of the series is to help new comers, as well as experienced site builders, how to create a blog website using Drupal 8.
Throughout each tutorial, major changes between Drupal 7 and 8 will be highlighted. Even if you know Drupal 7, follow along and you’ll learn what’s new in Drupal 8.
In this first tutorial, you’ll learn how to create a Blog content type and how to add custom fields. You’ll also learn about the Taxonomy system by creating your own vocabulary to categorize blog posts.
