A client would like to be able to ‘build’ each detail page for their portfolio. The breakdown would be something like this:

Each row can have a combination of either a video block (embed), a text block or a photo block.

The elements themselves can be either full width, half width or quarter width, and so a row can accomodate from one to four elements depending.

There can be however many rows.

As a newcomer to expression engine, I’d love to get anyone’s thoughts on how best to execute on this using EE.

Thanks so much for any help!

    Is this about display on the front-end, or data entry on the back-end, Kenyabob? Matrix may be part of the solution here: devot-ee.com/add-ons/matrix

I'd say you'd want to look closely at Matrix or Content Elements for this purpose, depending on your exact requirements.

  • Content elements seems like a better match! Matrix I think would make me define the content in each column, while I need to choose which content type each block will be as I go. I will look into content elements!
