The front page of a work is a kind of introduction or content listing about what the work contains, and when you change the type of content list, it is this front page that changes most in the work. There are other alternatives to the book-like table of contents, including the "presentation page", which can contain sets of writings arranged in different ways, and a "blog-like", which presumably means a blog-like presentation, where the layout can be adjusted in some way.
In the case of presentation page writings, a "mainimage" for a writing can be displayed (referred to as a "feature image" in some other services/applications). The mainimage must (optionally) be set for each writing separately in the view where the appearance of the writings is fine-tuned and where, for example, images can be included to the writings. A mainimage is also (optionally) used on a writing page as a header image or then just on a introduction pages alone.
On the works' front page, the "presentation page" could look like this. It shows several different writing sets made from the same collection of writings, in some cases with the writings automatically placed and in others the writings are placed manually. Published work can use multiple layouts, if enabling setting "Page menu" is selected in solution's adjustments.
There are about seven writing sets that require manual placement and about seven writing sets for which it is sufficient to just select a writing collection. There are about twenty styling and adjusting options to choose from (image from earlier version).
At the top of the view is a menu from which to select presentation pages created for the project. At the bottom, they are listed in such a way that you can change their order, change their names, change their participating setting and get an address that you can refer to, e.g. in writings.
Presentable pages containing one of more writing sets can be saved for later use. Writing sets can be ordered by simple dragging them using the mouse or other pointing device. Redirect links work in writing sets, too. When a new presentation page is created, a random name is generated for it. The presentation page can be duplicated as well as the blog appearances.
The writings in a blog-like work may be spread across several collections of writings, as the date of the writings determines the order in which they appear to the reader. A work may also contain collections of writings that are not even visible to the reader, but are in the project just for some reason.
For visibility on the presentation page, writings have two changeable dates, one of which is the date that determines the order of writings (publication date) and the other is displayed in the title of a writing (optional update date).
This is what a blog-like work might look like with standard styling.
(Actually.. you'd better take a look at: example: Blogging about something)
There are almost twenty buttons for adjusting the appearance (image from earlier version), which affect margins, image sizes, text ribbon layouts, etc. You can save as many element layouts as you feel you might need.
This is what a blog-like work might look like with a few quick tweaks. The visibility and placement of the writing-specific tags is one of the controls.
If there are a lot of writings in a work, just listing their names would take up a lot of screen space, making it less easy for the reader to grasp the scope of the work, or perhaps all the writings are in some way equally valuable/important, so why list all the names separately if all of one or more of the writings are intended to be read?
This, in all its simplicity, allows the reader to get straight to the point: the writings of all the collections of writings in the work are displayed below, separated by the name of the collection of writings, as they would appear if read separately.
