Article Teaser

In the teaser section add Teaser Image and Teaser Text. The theme utilizes Drupal core Media module, which allows you to browse and reuse existing media that has been uploaded to your site.

Click on the "Select Image" button and upload image, or click on the "Select existing" tab to use an existing image.

After choosing image for your teaser, you can click on the "Edit" button and use Focal Point to specify the portion of an image that is most important. For example, this will prevent thumbnail that cuts off the subject's head.

You will notice a crosshair in the middle of the image. Drag this crosshair to the most important part of your image. Alternatively you can click on the important part of your image if dragging seems too daunting.


Article Body

In this theme, the classic Body field is replaced with a Paragraph Builder as a new way of content creation. This will make things cleaner and will give you more editing power and flexibility. Instead of putting all the content in one WYSIWYG body field including images and videos, you can now choose on-the-fly between pre-defined Paragraph Types independent from one another.

To add new paragraph click on the "Add paragraph" button and from the pop-up choose which type of paragraph you wish to add.


Publishing Options

Use Publishing Options to promote your article on the front page, added it to the Featured Slider or in the Editor's Picks block, or mark his teaser as featured or highlighted.
