so, you want to make a static site dynamic? I'm more confused now
interesting indeed, but I still don't get the point; seems that tiles are a new name for fields and we are going to allow people using the CMS to insert any number of new fields on any piece of content.
IIRC, this has been the idea since the beginning of Deco, and it could make sense on small sites of just a couple of pages managed by one or two persons, but on others may be a nightmare in the making. I can't imagine migrating a site with dozens of editors and tens of thousands of news items, each one with a different layout and content fields (tiles).
This allows us adding more complex content elements such as images, videos, and in the future more complex layout elements.
In addition to the standard text editing it is now possible to add an image tile that can be placed on the left or right side, on the center of the page or in full page width.
Rob also added a YouTube tile that allows the editor to add a YouTube video URL and then displays the video within the editor and the page view.
Text, image, and video tiles can be added to a page. They can be deleted and moved up and down to change the order of the elements.
correct me, if I'm wrong, but I don't see anything that can't be done with our current content editor.
thank you for your comments, guys; I'm willing to learn and understand your use cases to see where are you heading.
some ideas may be useful for us in the future.
