What is a Thumbnail Index?

A Thumbnail Index is like a gallery that’s automatically populated with links to pages from your website. Let’s say you have several projects, and you want to showcase them all on your homepage without manually updating it every time you add a new project.

With a Thumbnail Index, whenever you add a new project, it’s automatically included and displayed on the homepage. It’s a convenient way to keep your homepage updated with your latest work without having to constantly edit it yourself.

What is a Thumbnail Index hover?

A Thumbnail Index hover means that when you move your mouse cursor over a project image in the Thumbnail Index, the title of that project will appear above the image. It gives a cool effect to your projects.

Add different project pages

Log in to your Cargo Collective account and access your Dashboard.

Go to the content section and first create a set that you can think of as a folder and then start adding different pages inside the set. Make sure you turn the pages on(green in color)

Add content to the project pages
