Feature request: Better presentation of sibling assets

Paul 3 years ago in BLOX CMS updated 3 years ago 3

Right now, if you have multiple sibling assets on an article, the first asset has an image, headline and summary. The remaining assets are just headlines. (Left)


We'd like siblings to be presented more like child assets; each one getting an image, headline and summary. (Right)

Hi guys!


We have an option for this!


If you go to the URL properties, under General Design, there is a choice for "Related asset display." You can choose between one card and then headlines (default), all headlines, or all cards (which is what you want).


We build this specifically for sites who were using lots of children in order to get the card display. We'd prefer you to use siblings for semi-related items, and children for very closely related items. If you want them to display as cards, you can use this option. =)


Remember that asset relationship has a specific interpretation by our software, and we make decisions based on those interpretations. This is why, for example, child assets syndicate along with their parent - because children are meant as an important (even necessary) element of the story. Siblings, for example, do not syndicate, because they are supposed to be only slightly related.


I hope this helps! =)


It would be nice to have that as an option.
