Best Brand comes with four build in Content types
- Blog post
- Slideshow entry
Of course Best Brand also supports the rest of Drupal's default content types: Article and Basic page.
A Product post is ideal for creating and displaying products. It has the option to be displayed into front page slide show. It provides the ability to attach an image which is automatically adjusted to fit into the websites layout. What’s particularly cool about a Product post, is that it provides the ability to attach a series of images, thumbnails of which are automatically created and adjusted to fit into the website layout. Product post enables free tagging (just like labels), taking the bests from the taxonomy system.
A blog post, similar in form to a story, is ideal for creating and displaying content that carries images and informs or engages website visitors. Press releases, site announcements, and informal blog entries may all be created with a blog post entry. By default, a blog post entry is automatically featured on the site's initial home page, and provides the ability to post comments. It has the option to be displayed into front page slide show. It provides the ability to attach an image which is automatically adjusted to fit into the websites layout. Blog post enables free tagging (just like labels), taking the taxonomy one step further.
The Testimonial entry is perfect to showcase the words of love from your users and customers. Use it to easily publish testimonials on your site. A special View Block and a View Page are already configured to show them off perfectly.
A Slideshow entry is ideal for creating commercial banners as well as messages for your website. Use it to promote any page of your website or URL into the front page slide show. It can carry a title, a teaser and an image linking to an internal path or external link.
Best Brand comes with pre-configured image presets ready to be used. All the content types, Blog post, Product and Slideshow entry make use of this and produce all necessary thumbnails and other derived images.
