You have automatically created sub-blocks and your content is automated.

Feeds for Content Management

"Manually Managed" feeds allow you to create new feed items with a title, body, media and any custom fields you like.

Rather than manually created sub-blocks to be each item in a grid or each slide in a carousel you can use and configure feeds to be layed out just like sub-blocks.

FEEDS FOR AUTOMATIC PAGE CREATION
