Extending Pages Module to Add View Sections

failcookie - 1 month ago

I feel like I am being needy with some of these questions, but I am just having some massive brain farts on a few of these issues and I cannot find a solid solution. I am looking at trying a few things out and see if I can speed up development on a few projects. I'd like to extend the Pages Module to create a section view for a group of field types that I usually create across projects.

For example - I have a common full screen hero image with the fields: Background Image, Heading, Subheading and Overlay Color. This is standard across most page types. For quick dev, I'd like to create a section for this as a plugin (I think?) and setup the fields from the code and pushed along to X and Y page types.

I have a plugin that I created and added streams to it. What do I need to do next to make sure the custom plugin talks to the Pages module?

Durr. Completely forgot about Grids in this scenario. Definitely was trying to make it harder than it should be for handling content.
