We often talk about how Contentful can do anything and everything. Its flexibility enables you to design your own content models and deliver content to any channel. But what are some of the very edge cases of how to use Contentful? In this post, I’ll describe one unexpected way I used Contentful to solve a very real problem for my father.
If you’re a marketer, or you build things for marketers, you know that experimentation is everything. It can help you deliver faster, and can base your decisions on what’s actually bringing you results. Now you can run these experiments on structured content: From today, Optimizely is an officially supported third-party app on Contentful.
The best way to adapt Contentful to your business or content processes is to use our UI extensions. It’s how you can customize your editing experience in the Contentful web app. One of these is sidebar extensions, which allows you to customize your sidebar to create a workspace with the controls you need.
Good content models don’t always make for easy editing. Now, with our entry extensions release, you can have the best of both worlds. This new feature allows you to overlay a custom UI on top of the entry editor, giving your designers, writers and other users an editing experience tailored to their needs – all while keeping your content model itself flexible and well-structured.
We’re introducing a series of extension features that increase the power and customization of the Contentful web app. Dialog extensions let you work with third-party integrations directly within the app. Everything’s in one, easy-to-use interface for editors, and dialogs are easy for developers to install and customize.
