Mini Story

This block is only featured in the Premium Tier of the NC State Web Platform.

Use Cases

The Mini Story block provides content creators another visually interesting way to breakup long bodies of text while pointing their users to additional relevant content. The Mini Story also affords site maintainers the opportunity to showcase unique photography while promoting another page or story.


In Gutenberg, adding a Mini Story block to a page is as easy as clicking the “Add a block” button and choosing “Mini Story” from the block list. Alternatively, the block can be found by using the “Search for a block” function. For more info on blocks and adding them to a WordPress site, see our documentation on blocks.

Once added, the Mini Story block allows for a custom heading, teaser text, linkable call to action, and a unique image.

Additional customization is available through the block settings found on the right-hand side menu. Creators can opt to change the background color, and to mirror the layout of the image and text.
