11. Modifying the Items in a Resource Collection

Resource Collections group items together into a grid layout.  On this view you can:

    1. See all the items that are in the selected collection
    2. See the order they will appear in
    3. See the item heights (for reference if bigger image needs more room)
    4. Remove an item from the collection

To add items to the collection select the ‘Update’ button (this will have ‘Update’ followed by the name of your collection.

To set item details (order, title, description, image height) also select the ‘Update’ button. 

Note that you can select an individual image by selecting on it (this currently does nothing)
