Site Builder Role

FAQ Categories

Overview

Categories for FAQs are required. Before you start creating FAQ items, create FAQ categories first (see instructions on the Categories page), so that you can assign the FAQ items to their corresponding FAQ categories.

Listings Widgets

There are several "listings" widgets available, which allow you to show a listing of content with various display options. The workflow for constructing Listings widgets is to build your content first (i.e., create Content pages, News items, FAQ items, etc.), and then select Listings widgets that will display your content as desired.

News Listings Widgets

There are several options for displaying your News content in a widget. Select "News" from "Add Existing Content," then click the "Add" button for the view you'd like to feature in a widget.

Most likely, you will find that the majority of your content will be created as "Content pages." A Content page is a standard webpage, with one primary chunk of content, and is likely in the main menu of your site.

Edit Content

Overview

To edit a page, navigate to that web page when you are logged in, and you will see an “Edit” Tab.

Reusable Content

Overview

When adding a new widget or modifying a current widget, you can check "Make this reusable" to easily re-use the widget on other pages. When you update a "Reusable content" widget, the update will be made on every page where the widget is featured.
