Story Page Templates
Story Pages are the pages that display each story. Every story has options for its story page layout. Simply, select which template you would like from the list in the top of the right column on the Edit Story page. Under the Story Page section on the SNO Design Options page, you can choose what you want the default template for your story pages to be.
Classic (With Sidebar) Default Template
The Classic (With Sidebar) template gives you a traditional looking story page where the story display across two thirds of the page and a sidebar that you fill with widgets is displayed in the other third. This template is especially good for displaying advertisements.
The Full-Width option displays your story across the entire width of the page without any sidebar content. This sidebar option allows for greater flexibility to display pull quotes and embeddable content that the content of the story wraps around.
The Side Rails option allows you to display links to other stories down the left side rail, allows for embeddable objects down the right side rail, and will display the SNO Ad Network ads if you are a network member.
The Long-Form template will display your story without the traditional header and will allow options for immersive photography and chapters of text. The Long-Form Chapter is the option you should use to create the chapters for the long form stories. Click for instructions on using the Long Form Template.
The Grid template will display the featured images of multiple stories without the traditional header. The featured images will link to each story, and upon mouse-over, the text of the story will appear over the top of the picture.
