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.
Use the native block functionality for most WYSIWYG formats. Use the Styled Panel Container to add a custom background behind your content.
Use the native Gutenberg columns block functionality. Use the Styled Panel Container to add a custom background behind your content.
Use the Alternating Image Row block to achieve the same layouts as the Alternating Images advanced content module.
