Display resources with a post

What goes better with Posts than Resources? Posts users can create a personalized resource collection for their post and have it display in a Resource element alongside the Single Post element.

Add resources to post

Adding resources to a post is simple! Navigate to the Posts module and open the post you wish to add resources to. Then, click on the “Attach Resources” button underneath the “Thumbnail & Resources” section of the Edit Post screen. A Resources screen will appear. Click on the “+ Add Resource” button to add as many resources as you want. Once complete, click “Back to Post” and return to the Edit Post screen. Finally, click "Update" (at the bottom right of the screen) to save the changes.

Display resources alongside posts

There are two components required to display a post’s resource collection in Composer: a Post element set to Single format and a linked Resource element.

  1. Add a Single Post element to your page.

  2. Add a Resource element to your page. This element is usually placed under the Post element and should be set to either Grid or Slideshow format.

  3. Navigate to the Post element settings, expand the “Link To” menu, and choose “Element.” From the dropdown list, select the Resource element.

When the link to a post with resources is clicked, the post will open in the Single Post element, which will trigger the Resource element to display the post’s attached resources. 

Tip: Use the toggle to turn off the Resource element name in the element settings. This way, when the user views a post on the same page that doesn't have any resources attached, the element will be invisible.
