OpenWRT Switching To Distributed Switch Architecture

Over the years I got used to the simple Switch configuration tab in the OpenWRT web interface to be able to configure which ports are tagged/untagged on which VLANs which I could then bridge later to specific interfaces. This page has since been removed for a more flexible/powerful subsystem that OpenWRT is implementing called DSA. I’m still new to this, however, I had to recently configure a similar interface-to-vlan layout in this new section. It is now listed under the interface bridge configuration page but it has the similar table layout with the same set of options. For example, two LAN switch ports on separated VLAN access ports (untagged) and two LAN switch ports as VLAN trunk ports (tagged) both of which are carrying the other two separated VLAN network traffic.
