Embed-able Entities

This post is a showcase of the power of embedding "stuff" (which we'll call Entities) in the content area of a site. We're always fiddling with the possibilities, so fair warning: this post will typically look a bit messy. :)

The power of Entities is that they can be just about anything. You'll see a couple examples below, but really, think crazy & it can be on a page. Stock tickers, custom-formatted displays of products from Reverb.com, a live feed from Instagram, all pre-formatted and made beautiful by our website's theme. Once it's built, all we're doing is uploading a few images, entering a few lines of text, copying a hashtag, and boom, you have the below.


Fig. 1 - A Slideshow.

This is an example of a custom slideshow I built recently for our Case Studies. Now that it's built, we can chuck some images into one & put it anywhere.


Fig. 2 - Some Columns

Here's a text-based one. There's two columns in this example, but in theory, you could have dozens of chunks in a 2-3 column grid. Pulled from our 3-Column Case Study intro.

Column #1

These are some awesomely styled columns.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Sed tincidunt elit at pellentesque feugiat. Donec ut diam sit amet ligula pellentesque hendrerit non venenatis nisl. Integer sit amet eros vitae lorem laoreet aliquam. Vivamus a arcu sit amet sapien lobortis auctor. Nam et mi tortor. Etiam molestie lacinia luctus. Nulla facilisi. Nullam convallis enim non libero congue, vel sollicitudin ex vulputate. Praesent at ante et tortor facilisis tempus at a erat. Nullam congue, massa vitae varius faucibus, metus metus placerat orci, ac iaculis risus est ut velit. Vestibulum eget maximus odio, a volutpat mauris.

Column #2

seriously awesomely styled columns.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Sed tincidunt elit at pellentesque feugiat. Donec ut diam sit amet ligula pellentesque hendrerit non venenatis nisl. Integer sit amet eros vitae lorem laoreet aliquam. Vivamus a arcu sit amet sapien lobortis auctor. Nam et mi tortor. Etiam molestie lacinia luctus. Nulla facilisi. Nullam convallis enim non libero congue, vel sollicitudin ex vulputate.

These entities can be really simple, or super-complicated. Really, the sky's the limit here.


I'll expand this showcase with additional entities as we think of new ideas. Stay Tuned.
