Adding a Related content widget


Pangea CMS lets you add a Related content widget to certain content pages. A Related content widget provides links to other content published by your own service that visitors may find interesting. The widget is displayed on the right side of the screen on desktop, or below the main content on mobile devices.

NOTE: If the content page also includes a Region, the Related content widget is displayed above the the Region. A content page may automatically include a Region based on the settings for the Category that the content is assigned to.



This article explains how to add a Related content widget on any of the the following edit screens that use the new CMS 8 layout:

  • Article, Feature, or Transcript
  • Audio Clip
  • Document BETA
  • FactCheck BETA
  • Photo Gallery
  • Static Infographics
  • Video

It is also possible to add a Related content widget using certain edit screens that still use the classic CMS layout.
