Core Publisher: What is a Three Story Curated Block?

The Curated Homepage Block allows you to feature Posts that you either created locally or pulled in from the NPR Story API. There are two treatments for the Curated Block -- Three Stories and One Story.

Use the Three Stories Curated Block to feature three posts (either local or from the NPR Story API) on your homepage. The posts that you select do not have to have images to be added to a Curated block.

In Region A:

This layout of the Three Stores Curated Block was designed with major news event consideration. The first story added is treated as the main story, so the primary (first) image, headline and first few lines of text from the post are displayed prominently. The primary image and headline for the other two posts are stacked to the left of the main post.

In Region B:

Because Region B is a skinnier region, the posts become stacked, with the main story at the top, to improve readability.

In Region C:

Because Region C is a larger region that spans the entire width of the homepage, the size of the block in this region is a bit larger. The headline of the main post overlays the image as well.
