Most content types are Assets. In the Creating Web Content tutorial, you examined the most common type of asset: web content. Other types of assets include blog posts, wiki articles, message board posts, bookmarks, and documents. Developers can define custom asset types that use the asset framework, which provides support for tags, categories, vocabularies, comments, ratings, and asset relationships.
The Asset Publisher application displays assets. It has many configuration options which you’ll cover in this chapter. By default, Asset Publisher displays abstracts (previews) of recently published assets with links to their full views. You can configure the Asset Publisher app to display a table of assets, a list of asset titles, or the full content of assets. You can also make it display only certain kinds of assets, and you choose how many items to display in a list.
You might use Asset Publisher to display chosen content types, recent content, or content by tags and categories.
This section covers the following topics:
- Adding relationships between assets
