Creating a Content Widget

Content widgets contain a Rich Text Editor (RTE) text box, that provides various options for formatting your text & image content. 

Please refer to the below instructions for creating a Content widget:

1. Go to System → System Configuration

2. Click on Dashboard

3. Click on New Widget

* indicates a required field

4. In the Type* drop-down, select the "Content" option

5. Title*: Enter a name

Tip: This can be anything, but we recommend using something that catches the attention of the targeted users.

6. Description*: Enter a description

Note: Only appears to administrators and won't be shown to users/on the front-end.

7. Preferred Column*: Select the preferred column you wish to display the widget in - either "left" or "right"

8. Target Country: Set target country/countries you wish to apply the widget to [optional]

9. Style*: Choose your preferred header style and colouring

10. Content*: Enter the content you wish to display in the widget

Tip: Use the various options for formatting your content (e.g. colour, size, lists, alignment etc.).

11. Click Save

Note: The content widget will show the first 200 characters by default. If the text content contains more than 200 characteres a 'More' button will appear that allows you to view the full contents of the widget.

So, what next?
