Intro to the Modular Content Field

7m 53s

Another unique feature to DatoCMS, the Modular Content field is used to define a dynamic area for richer page layouts, available in two flavours - a Single Block and Multiple Blocks.

For example, in a landing page, defining a Modular Content field allows the writer to choose between adding a text section, a carousel, or a CTA, depending on which blocks have been created. This gives the writer the freedom to compose a landing page by alternating and ordering as many of these choices as they want/need.

You can use Modular content for defining dynamic layouts in any of your models where you want to give the content writers the choice between different template options within some guidelines.

For more details on making block editing feel "native" to the model itself, check out the release and details on the Frameless Presentation mode.
