Defining the structure of your browse page(s)

Twixl Support Team Updated: - Created :

Article-based apps in Twixl Publisher use a concept that we call "browse pages" as a flexible way to present your content to readers. While browse pages can still mimic the behaviour of the traditional kiosk that contains different issues, the flexibility goes much further.

The layout of your browse pages will be defined using a grid-based approach. First of all, define a number of columns for your pages, then based on that your page will be divided into a number of equal squares.

Browse pages can be defined as either scrolling vertically or horizontally.

Below are examples of both a 4-column and a 6-column grid with vertical scrolling.

Browse Grids

All the items that you want to display will then have a size of one or more squares, and your pages will have different cells, as you can see in the example below.

Brows Grid, how it works

Each of the cells can display a thumbnail that links to an article, or to other content items like a movie or an image (more on 'content items' can be found here). But it can also be a link to a collection of articles (an 'issue' in traditional speak).
