I'm learning Drupal 8 after working with 7 for a number of years and I'm a bit unsure how to approach this. I need to be able to add a block and have it appear on a few specific pages.
I also need to be able to add some text and a link to this block. Is there a way to add these as fields to the block that can be filled in when the block is added to the page?
It looks like I could accomplish something similar by creating a new content type with those fields and adding it as an "Entity view" but this seems like overly complicated.
Is there another way I'm not aware of?
