To edit the design and layout of your Manifold project, log in to Manifold, enter Admin Mode, and select your project from the list of Projects on the left side of the screen. This will take you to a project “Analytics” page, where you can see additional menu options on the left hand side of the screen. Begin by customizing settings on the Properties, Layout, and Access menus.
Hero Block: The options under “Hero Block” allow you to customize the visuals and content on the top half of your project’s landing page. Click the “pencil” icon on the right-hand side of each of the three items under Hero Block to edit them. You can view your layout as you make changes by clicking the “View” icon in the shape of an eye, underneath your project title at the top of the page.
Content Blocks: Add and re-organize content blocks to build the rest of your Manifold project page. Under “Blocks” you can add new types of content to your page by clicking the plus sign. Under “Layout” you can drag and drop to rearrange your content blocks, and hide them by clicking the “eye” icon. Click and hold on the equals sign on the far right side of each content block to change its order in the layout. Projects can contain multiple Markdown, Table of Contents, and Texts blocks, while the Metadata, Recent Activity, and Resources blocks can only appear once. Preview your changes by clicking the “View” icon in the shape of an eye, underneath your project title at the top of the page.
Under "Editor Permissions,” you can grant editing access to other Manifold users. Click the “Grant editor permissions” button, and type the user’s name into the drop down menu that appears. Use the toggle buttons to select what permissions to grant each user you add. Users must already have a Manifold reader account. This is the way to add contributing authors, editors, and students to your project. For more details on permissions, check out the Manifold GitHub page.
"Project Entitlements” relates to controlling access if you wish to restrict your content behind a paywall. You do not need to adjust this setting.
