Every story in Quintype has a structure. There are mandatory and non-mandatory components to a story. Your administrator can decide what elements are mandatory or non-mandatory.
Each story must have a Title, Subtitle, Hero image anda Card. For certain story types, the list of mandatory elements may be longer. For example - a Listicle story may mandatorily require at least three list items, apart from the Title, Subtitle, Hero image and an Introduction.
Elements are the building blocks of a story. You can add an element above, below, or in between elements. You can delete an element and add review comments to each element. An element can be displayed differently to a reader, based on the website’s layout settings.
Each element provides a delete icon and a comment icon (Start a Conversation) on its top right corner.
