Improve Admin Page Creation

The appetite for 'cards' and visuals leading to other content on a website is causing an incredible amount of overhead for any site in OpenScholar. For example

https://hwpi.harvard.edu/sdp/our-impact landing page features 12 IMPACT PAGES
in CARDS
In order to achieve this look we had to create 12 small images - 12 chtml widgets to hold the image and link to the impact story - then we had to create 4 additonal columns widgets and put the 12 cards in at 3 each and style each column and link to the impact story - not reusing anything already on the impact story.

the time spent is not the only issue - redundancy leaves one open to errors and reputational damage when those errors occur.

Each Impact Page has 6 to 8 widgets because there's no other way to style a page.
but this still doesn't allow you to use these pages in a dynamic fashion (while remaining visually appealing)

We would be happy to work with you on creating this layout/template on a page. Perhaps it's even just an added couple of fields on the right side where we add a blurb and image to make a rollup page with a card.
