Collection Grid Block

Collection grid block

The Collection Grid block provides a simple way to display collection item pages that can be filtered based on the collection categories selected. Start by creating your collection item pages. For example, you could create a collection type for all your "Computer Science" program courses and create collection categories such as "Majors, Minors, and Certificates". Visitors may then filter the content to just view the courses for Computer Science majors.

Note: you must enable the Collections bundle to use this block.
