Organizing a collection of thousands of images can be daunting and time-intensive. If you or your team members haven’t taken the time to organize your images by adding detailed titles and meta-descriptions, that disorder can eat up your time. Every new blog post turns into a game of hide-and-seek as you scroll and scroll, trying to find your feature image, or that infographic your designer dropped into the library. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Organizing, and finding your images, can take seconds, making your content operations workflow a whole lot smoother.
Contentful is a really powerful CMS that we use on a number of projects at The Couch. However despite most of our clients having an intimate hate for Wordpress, they do have an intimate love for some of the common features. One of which isn’t something that works out of the box with Contentful: Preview.
Most of us use some type of map –– be it the Google or paper variety –– to navigate around unknown cities and places. Navigation helps us to get to where we need to go, and anyone who’s had their phone die on them in a new city knows how it feels to be completely lost.
I’ve spent a lot of time chatting with NYC Contentful users about their experiences using our software, and I've been hearing a lot about the pitfalls that editors and developers experience when setting up previews. Editors and developers both interact with the same projects, but their experiences with those projects are completely different.
I work at DoSomething dot org, which is the largest not-for-profit exclusively for young people and social change. Our digital platform activates millions of young people to create offline impact in every US area code and in 131 countries. We run social good campaigns (350+!) where our members can learn about a social issue, take some practical actions to help solve that issue and report back to us to verify their social action. Through these campaigns, DoSomething members have clothed half of America’s youth in homeless shelters. They’ve cleaned up 3.7 million cigarette butts. They’ve run the world’s largest youth-led sports equipment drive. And much more!
