What's the best way to do stackable content blocks in Umbraco 8? I want to have landing pages, where I can configure blocks in any order.
In Episerver, I can create block types then attach them to the ContentArea in the Page Type.
I was looking in Umbraco, and it seems like it should be Macros with Grid Layout. But when I set up the parameters for the Macro, the list is very limited. There's no Rich Text, List...
Have a look at Nested Content, it should be exactly what you need.

What's the best way to do a shared block that be used across many pages? Would I do Nested Content with a link to the shared block? Where would that shared block live in the Content tree?
If you need them shareable/reusable, you'd want to create your own component store in a folder and then use a content picker to pick the blocks to include.
If you go down the nested content route they are "create per page" type blocks. You might find you want a mix of both, so you could have a nested content block that contains a picker so you can combine both approaches.
I would create a separate folder with separate nodes and user Umbraco Node Picker to select the needed shared node where it's required
Marc from uSkinned here. Our themes use the component approach that Nic mentioned. If you contact us via our contact form we can set you up with a demo to try it out.
