An Asset Card is an essential widget for a page where you want to present content.
Your content (assets) can be inserted within the page using this element. You can insert assets of any file type within the content card.
The + icon on the top left is the element palette that contains the asset card that you can use when you are building a page.

Add Asset cards to the page
To add Asset cards to your page, go to the element palette and select Asset cards. By default, you’ll get three asset cards added to your page.
Once you add the asset cards to the page, hover over the card and click on the Choose Content option.
The content for Cleverstory can be added in two ways:
Add your respective content and choose the content pieces you want to showcase using the Asset Card. Click on Add to Layout after selecting the content.
Here's how the asset card would appear after you've added it to the page:
Accessing the Content Toolbar
The Content Toolbar is available when you click on the Asset Card element that you dragged and dropped into the page.
The toolbar includes Layout Fields, Spacing, and Grid Options.
> The layout field option allows you to choose which details of the asset card you want to showcase on the page.
> The card includes Basic Fields and Custom Widgets.
> Basic Fields are the default fields available when you add the asset card to the page. The Basic fields in the card include:
> Custom widgets include the elements that you can add from the elements palette by dragging and dropping based on your asset card. In the default card, the custom widgets are:
> If you don’t wish to have a basic field on the asset card, you can hide that field by clicking on the eye icon present alongside the respective field and vice-versa if you want to unhide a field.
> You can space out your cards in two ways: Column Spacing and Row Spacing.
> Column Spacing: You can space out the distance between your cards by increasing the Column space. You can insert the number in the box or move the slide bar to easily space out the cards and see what works for you. The arrows indicate the spacing between the columns.
> Row Spacing: When you have multiple asset cards that get split into various rows, that’s where you can use the Row Spacing to adjust the spacing between two rows.
The arrows indicate the spacing between the rows.
> The Grid option gives you two options for pagination.
> Pagination is basically dividing a large chunk of content into various sections using buttons like Load more or by infinite scrolling after a particular point for your next set of content to load.
> Before setting the pagination, No. of contents to load initially has to be determined.
Infinite Scrolling: When you choose Infinite Scroll, your content will load continuously as you scroll down. Upon scrolling, all the content will show up after the default set of content is shown.
Load More button: This button is present at the bottom of a your content section, which upon clicking allows you to load more content.
Once you’ve added the content, if you wish to add more assets or rearrange the content, click on the Asset card element and choose the Manage Content option.
Adding assets: Upon entering the Content Manager tab, on the top right corner you’ll see an Add Assets button. Click on the button, and it’ll take you to the Content Library, where you can upload the content that you want and Add it to Layout.
Rearranging assets: To rearrange assets, hover over the asset and click on the four club-spoked asterisk, then drag it as desired. Save & Close once you’ve set the order.
Removing an asset: Select the content within the Content Manager tab and click on the Remove button present on the top of the tab. Save & Close after removing the respective content.
There are two ways to edit the assets on Cleverstory.
1. Editing the asset within Manage content

If you want to shift back to the original asset name and details, click on the Reset button in the top right corner above the thumbnail.
