These are steps for modifying the order fields appear in Oliver to ensure the video appears towards the top of the story page once opened - this makes it clearly visible for the user. Additionally there are instructions below for setting up a slider that showcases Story Box Library on the Oliver News page. 


  1. Navigate to System > Pages (must be an Oliver administrator)
  2. Click ‘Turn On’ page editing:

  1. Open the Oliver Search interface and search for a SBL resource
  2. Click the Title to view the SBL resource details
  3. Scroll right to the bottom of the page and click ‘Change the layout of this screen’:

  1. Edit the entry with the following:

Area name: catalog

Page Type: detail

Page Name: search2Fixed

  1. In the Used fields column, locate and select ‘StoryBox Video’, then use the ‘Up’ arrow to move it up the list (we recommend to the top of the list)

  1. Click ‘Save’. Close and re-open the Search interface to see the change.
