Migrating Advanced Content Modules

Originally, the advanced layouts where handled through the use of custom functionality we called Advanced Content.

This section provides an explanation of how to reproduce the functionality from Advanced Content using the blocks editor and custom blocks.  The following is a screenshot of the legacy Advanced Content Modules.  Each will be addressed individually with an explanation of how to recreate them using standard or custom blocks.

WYSIWYG

Use the native block functionality for most WYSIWYG formats.  Use the Styled Panel Container to add a custom background behind your content.

Multiple Columns

Use the native Gutenberg columns block functionality.  Use the Styled Panel Container to add a custom background behind your content.

Alternating Images

Use the Alternating Image Row block to achieve the same layouts as the Alternating Images advanced content module.

Accordion

There isn’t an out-of-the-box accordion block that comes with the Gutenberg editor.  We installed a plugin that adds this functionality.  Use the Accordion Item block supplied by that plugin.

Box Grid

Use the regular columns block, and add a Grid Box block within each column.

Photo Link Grid

Use the regular columns block, and add a Photo Link Box block within each column.

Download Boxes

Use the regular columns block, and add a Download Box block within each column.

People

PDF Embed

The PDF embedder plugin comes with it’s own custom block called PDF Embedder.

Social Links

Twitter

Use the out-of-the-box Twitter block to insert a Twitter feed.
