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.

Types of Widgets

Overview

There are many types of widgets available to feature content on your site! See the full menu on the left for details and instructions on how to use each one.

The Photo Thumbnail with Zoom allows Site Builders to show a photo in widget, and then when a user clicks on the widget, a larger zoom (modal) version of the photo pops up. The Photo Thumbnail with Zoom features a line of text (a title) to accompany the photo, with the option to include a photo credit and caption as well.
