Connect StoryChief with multiple node types

When you configure our Drupal module, you will be asked to choose a node type to use for creating stories. Some Drupal websites have multiple node types defined for different types of content. For this to work inside StoryChief, there are two additional necessary steps.

Publish to multiple node types

Step 1: Log in to your StoryChief account and go to the setting page and click through to the Custom fields. Here, click "Add custom field" and select "Single option" to create a custom field with the node types you want to use.

Step 2. Now we need to define the options. The value of the options should contain the "machine name" of your Drupal node types. The machine names can be found here

Step 3. Save the custom field and go to your Drupal channel configuration page. Visiting the configuration page will trigger a synchronisation of the custom fields so they are visible inside Drupal.

Step 4. Configure Drupal to use the custom field as a node type. Go to the StoryChief Drupal module configuration page:

In the section "Multiple node types" you can now select the custom field we created in Step 1 and click "Save configuration".

Step 5. When creating a story in StoryChief, you can choose the Node Type in the tab "Summary". If none is provided we use the default Node Type.
