This is my first EE build. I'm building a system that allows users to create content entries to be displayed anywhere on the site and in various different display formats (eg: featured, compact, thumbnail etc.). One entry could appear on several different pages and look different depending what display type it was given for that page.
Here's what I have already set up:
- Create entries in a "Content" channel with various fields like rich text, images, links etc.
I know EE Relationships will do this:
- Assign any number of those entries in any order to an entry in the "Pages" channel
I NEED to do this:
- Associate a "Display Type" with each of those entries at the time of relating them to a page
This would allow me to share those entries across the site, but separate their display types from the data without that being done in templates.
If a combination of Playa, Matrix, Low Variables or any other add-on will help, I'd love to know!
I have to get purchase orders every time I spend an tiny amount of money so it's difficult to purchase add-ons unless I really know I can use it. :(
