  • Series - This lets assets run in a particular order and groups them together.
  • Timeline - This plots assets on a timeline by start date.

None

This is the default Presentation.  There is no special Presentation applied.  The Collection Title is displayed at the top with the Description underneath it.  Each Asset is listed in a single block in a stacked manner.  If there is a related Image Child Asset in an Article Asset, it will be displayed to the left of the Title and Summary of each Article Asset in the collection.  If there's a Byline, it will appear in between the Title and Summary.  If there's no Byline but there is an Author, the Author will appear there instead.  If there are both an Author and a Byline, the Author displays below the Byline.  All Sibling Assets in the Collection Asset, will be displayed on the left side at the bottom of all the Collection Assets.

NOTE: Associated Classifieds assets will appear below the map. Editorial assets will not. If you have a mix of editorial and classifieds, no assets will appear. 


Paging Gallery

This Presentation adds controls for switching between individual Assets.  The Title of the Collection will be at the top with the Description under it, just above the Collection.  The Title of the Image Asset is linked just under the Collection with the Byline displayed under the Title.  If you click on the Title link, you will notice the Photographer's name is listed under the Image Asset (it opens in a new browser window).  

If the Collection is related to another Collection, that Collection will be listed underneath the Paging Gallery.  Any Sibling Assets that are part of the Paging Gallery Collection will be listed and linked below related Collection.  There are two points to navigate through the Paging Gallery.  They are on the right side of the Collection; one is above and one is below.


Note: When using the Presentation option Paging Gallery on a Collection Asset, the Byline will appear under the image and above the caption.  If there is an Author, it displays at the bottom of Asset.

Note:  This example has a Banner Ad set to show after every third photo.


Series

This Presentation allows assets to run in a particular order.  The Collection Title is displayed at the top with the Description underneath it.  Each Asset is listed in a single block in a stacked manner based on the order they are listed in the Collection and have a 'Read More' link associated with it.  If there is a related Image Child Asset in an Article Asset, it will be displayed to the left of the Title and Summary of each Article Asset in the collection.  All Sibling Assets in the Collection Asset, will be displayed on the left side at the bottom of all the Collection Assets listed in the Series.

When you click on a 'Read More' link, it opens an Asset in its own browser.  The Asset Byline will be displayed at the top and the Author will be displayed at the bottom of the Asset.  As you scroll down in the Asset that is part of a Series, you will see a "In This Series" box below the Asset with links that allow you to move to the 'Previous' or 'Next' Asset in the Series or to return to the Collection.  Also, as you scroll to the bottom, a pop-up window will appear in the lower right corner with the next Asset in the Series linked in it.

Timeline

This Presentation plots assets on a timeline by start date.  The title of the Timeline Presentation Asset will be at the top of your Collection page.  The title of Collection and the Description will appear in the Collection itself.  If there is an Image Child Asset to the Article Asset, it will display to the left of the content.  An arrow will display on the middle right of the Collection with a timeline based on the dates stated in the Collection Asset will be displayed at the bottom of the Collection.  You can navigate by clicking on the arrows or click on an Asset in the Timeline itself.

If you click to open the Asset, you'll see the Byline listed above the content just under the Title and Subheadline. 

You can also place a Timeline Collection into an Article Asset as an Inline Asset.  If you do, the Article Asset you place a Collection Timeline Asset in, will appear under the actual Timeline Collection.  Any Sibling Assets in the Timeline Collection will appear below by Title (linked).

NOTE:  Bringing a Timeline Collection inline to an Article Asset is an effective way to present the Article Asset.  However, be aware, doing so, two things will happen:  First, if you are using a Hammer in your header, it will not appear as it is suppose to.  Two, if you have a Location set in the Article Asset, the Map will NOT appear in the Article Asset.
