What's inside this article:



What are Website teaser settings?

Website teaser settings are used to generate the default preview of a content item that is displayed via widgets and other pages on the public website. You can optionally add some or all of the following Website teaser settings for any content item:

  • Title
  • Introduction
  • Label
  • Horizontal image
  • Vertical image
  • Loop Video

For example, you can add a separate Website teaser title for an article. The Website teaser title appears instead of the main title when the article is previewed on a widget.

NOTE: If a content item does not have a particular Website teaser setting, the relevant item from the General settings is used in the preview.

Label

Add a Label that may be displayed in addition to the title for the content item on certain widgets. Labels are commonly topics, such as 'Politics' or 'Sport'. This information helps to categorize the items listed on a widget.
