What are content cards and how do I create them?
Create your content cards using: URLs of articles, videos and gifs, write your own Texts and upload Images/videos.
tchop tip: You can let our RSS Feed function do all the work for you. Check out our FAQ "How to integrate RSS Feeds and Slack posts to your Mixes"
You can create as many content cards as you want. Just drag and drop each card in the order you wish them to be displayed.
1. Create article CARDS using website URLs:
Add any URL you want to a CARD and tchop will automatically add the basic info for you: Image, Title and an Intro from that link. The great thing here is, you can edit all that automated content that comes with the url as you wish. You can change the image, title and intro. You have complete control over your content.
