Whilst some content can be sufficiently defined with plain text, sometimes there is a need for richer formatting and layouts. To support such content Whistlepost provides a selection of editors capable of capturing and rendering markup and rich content formats.
Whilst every Whistlepost site may choose to render content in unique ways, we can define some common structured metadata that is typical for a particular type of page. Using common types allows us to provide consistent formatting a layout of pages and page sections.
A news article is typically defined to include a tile, an abstract, a cover image, and a body of text.
A recipe consists of a title, an abstract, a cover image, a list of ingredients, and a method.
An advertisement may consist of a title, a thumbnail image and a full-size image.
A collection will consist of a title, a description, a page count (for paging resources), and a list of resources included in the collection.
