A content type product that allows you to create a profile (case study, client profile, etc) with image and rich text content. It includes a portlet to rotate through the published Success Stories. A simple, but useful and flexible product.

Project Description

It also provides a portlet that will show a random success story, taken from the given Success Story Folder. You can add multiple Success Story folders in your site and then have set different portlets to display their contents.
