Hello contentful community!
I just arrived from working primarily with wordpress as backend. Enjoying contentful a lot, but one question:
In wordpress I often use the repeater field from the Advanced Custom Fields plugin to allow flexible layouts, and I am now trying to figure out what is the best way to achiev something similar with contentful.
To exemplify, for a site I am currently working on I would like this:
I define a couple of different subsection-types: text, images, embed, etc…
I would like the authors/editors to be able to add an arbitrary number of fields of these subsection-types, and drag and drop to change the order.
I now do this with a multi reference field, and created post types for the different subsections/components.
This works! But somehow feels a bit messy (for the editors), with the “sub-content” showing up in the list of all entries etc…
How would you guys go about this?
