Here's an example of where "less is more" sometimes. I reckon we can make the video paragraph type in LocalGov Drupal simpler by just removing the template.

Reformatting Drupal Code: LocalGov Alert Banner

When looking recently at the template for the video paragraph type in LocalGov Drupal, I thought, "hang on, is this necessary?". As it turns out, we have a template for it, but I'm not sure it's needed.

Let's go through this template implementation step-by-step to show how sometimes less is more.


I've started streaming some of my work, especially if it's contributions to open source, on twitch if you'd like to follow along/subscribe. As it turns out, Twitch deletes your videos after 14 days, so I have also been uploading them to YouTube. Feel free to subscribe.
