Website teaser

Configure how the audio clip is previewed via widgets on the public website. Configuring these settings is optional unless the audio clip title is longer than 140 characters. In this case, the Teaser title is required.



Social media

Optionally configure how the audio clip is previewed when it is shared via social media. If you do not configure these settings, the Title, Main image, and Introduction from the General settings are used.



Authors, contributors

Optionally add one or more authors that are displayed at the top of the audio clip page on the public website. You can only add someone who is an author in Pangea CMS.



Tags

Optionally add one or more tags. Adding tags has the following benefits:

Tags also influence the search results displayed for visitors on the public website.



Comments

If your service has comments enabled for audio clips, you can manually enable or disable the option for visitors to leave comments on the current audio clip page.



Encoded files

Access the different versions of the audio file. After you upload an audio file, Pangea CMS creates different versions of the file that allow it to be played in different levels of quality.



Miscellaneous

Copy the URL for the audio clip page, or add internal notes that are visible only via the audio clip Settings screen. Notes are not searchable in Pangea CMS and are not visible on the public website.




Add related content

You can add a Related content widget to the audio clip page. 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.

Select Related content in the left panel and click Select content. For detailed instructions, refer to the following article:




Preview the audio clip

If the status of the audio clip is Published, you can click Live site in the top-right corner to open the audio clip on the public website. Regardless of the status, you can use the options under Preview in the left panel to preview the page on devices with different screen sizes (desktop, tablet, or mobile).
