Print Publication Listing
To highlight your organization's printed publications such as a newsletter or magazine, use the "Publications List" template. This template will add a browse-able gallery of issues for a particular publication with a title, image of the issue cover, and link to a PDF version of the issue.
Creating a print publication list from scratch requires building quite a few components. You will want to first upload images for the covers, then create a component for each issue, then assemble the list. These components can exist anywhere in the Building Blocks folder, but it may be easiest to create a separate folder for these components.
