You have created a website, a YouTube channel and now you want an easy way for visitors to subscribe to your channel.

You installed a basic Drupal 8 website, created a few articles and now you want to customize the way the content pages look. When you go to “Manage Display” you can re-order fields but you can’t put them in regions. Display Suite is the module designed to do just that. It offers extra regions on the “Manage Display” page with a drag-and-drop fields interface. There are different layouts with different sets of regions. You can move fields around without writing a single line of code.

So where are the larger images?
Over the last couple of weeks there was a lot of anger about the Facebook privacy blunders. On Twitter there was the #DeleteFacebook hashtag and there where other initiatives in various countries. But getting away from Facebook is easier said than done. One of the reasons is the Facebook built tracking software which is used by a lot of apps.
When I started using Firebase realtime database in my app I Quit Smoking it was very easy to test. All the data in the database was from development with the emulator. I released the new version of the app and there where a few errors. So I started to work on that. I soon discovered a practical problem being that the data in the database contained live data.
