Article assets are the most-basic asset type within BLOX CMS. Articles may be created both directly within the BLOX CMS editor or pasted in from another application.
How to create an Article asset
To create a new Article asset, within BLOX Assets select +New at the top of the Search Results panel and then select Article. This will populate the Article (new) panel where the required information can be completed to build the asset.
Article asset requirements
Article assets support a wealth of options, but only require the following:
- Asset title
- Body copy
- Section tag
Building the asset

Byline: A Byline may be included. This will appear either alongside the Author or by hovering over the Author, depending on the presentation style.
