When you create a custom database type in Webvanta, you can add whatever fields you want. One popular option is "Related Assets", which is used most commonly to associate a set of images with a database item.
Related assets have not, however, been available for our built-in item types. Now they are! This is especially useful when you want to associate a set of photos, instead of only the single "icon" image, with a blog post or article. You can, for example, show a photo gallery for each blog post.
This feature is disabled by default, so existing sites will not see any change. To enable it, add a Global Setting (via Settings > Global Settings), as specified below.
|Item Types Affected||Global Setting Name||Global Setting Value|
|Articles and Blog Posts||node.articles.related.assets||Set to "true" to enable|
|Articles and Blog Posts||node.articles.related.assets.label||Optional label for the asset picker (e.g., "Photos")|
|Links, Events, and Books||node.links.related.assets||Set to "true" to enable|
|Links, Events, and Books||node.links.related.assets.label||Optional label for the asset picker (e.g., "Photos")|
To access the related assets, use the same WebvantaScript as for custom item types, as described in the support article Working with Related Assets
