What are Sub-Topics?

Sub-Topics are the various media type groups that can be selected to appear under a Topic or Directory Listing. 

For instance, if you wanted an Article to appear under a Topic you created, then you would need to add the Articles Sub-Topic option in the New Topic/Listing Form for that Topic. 

Sub-Topic Options

There are many different Sub-Topic options you can choose from for a Topic/Listing. You can create a Topic/Listing that has no Sub-Topics (and only uses custom URLs and/or the single video/article/lesson options) or you can have ALL the Sub-Topics selected. It is up to you. 

Stand Alone Media Types

There are a few media types that appear in their own menu options in the app/web. We refer to these as Stand Alone Media. Some of these exist independent of Topics/Listings and some of them can be found with the Sub-Topics and can also be made to exist independently. See the list below for more information.

NOTE: Some of the items below may not be available to you depending on what type of app/web owner you are, and which ones you have turned on.

NOTE: We have not mentioned that things like video and audio files can also appear in lessons/courses. For ease of explanation we are considering lessons/courses to be their own individual media types. 

Additionally, most of these Sub-Topics can also be featured which will cause them to appear in the feature area of the app/web. We do not consider featured content to be a stand alone media type.
