Content Type Fields: Custom Form Elements & Data Storage


I have a requirement, which I know how to achieve in Drupal 7. However, I am not sure of the D8 approach. Below mentioned are the details.

I have following available in my Drupal UI:

  1. Article Content Type
  2. Tags field, Which is provided by default as an entity reference of Taxanomy Term.


  1. Create checkbox element inside the "Edit Form" of Tags field (i.e: field_config_edit_form).
  2. Save this checkbox element value.

Drupal 7 Approach:

Twig Translation String without Enabling Interface Translation

Is it possible to provide translation strings to Twig, without the Interface Translation module enabled?

We have Content Translation enabled but do not want to enable Interface translation (we would like the Drupal administration menu system to remain in English).

We have a couple of landing pages that base most of their content on a translated entity however, there are still a few labels and links we would like to translate using {{ 'foo'|t }} in Twig.

Is this possible? And if so - where would the translation stings be stored?

I am currently trying to update 2 drupal sites from 8.2.6 to 8.2.7. Due to the setup on the server I have had to try the manual method (no ftp). Unfortunately I have not had much success with either.

Site 1

On the first site everything appears to be fine until I load Once I click on continue on the overview stage it attempts to open but this results in a 404 error message.

Comcast Technology Solutions

Comcast banner

Comcast Technology Solutions, a B2B unit of Comcast, reached a point where traditional marketing wasn’t doing enough to communicate decades of innovation and experience within the cable and broadband space. They had stories to tell and success to tout, but no means with which to do it.

Given the lightning-fast pace of multi-platform media buying, Comcast Technology Solutions needed a new content marketing strategy, supported by a Drupal-baded infrastructure.

Redirecting URLs - Switching a site from Underscore to Hyphen?

When we first started using Drupal over 10 years ago the choice was made to use underscore separators (OLD) in URL aliases. I am now considering switching to hyphens (NEW), but want to retain the OLD URLs for search engine indexing and SEO purposes.
