Build a Feature widget

What's inside this article:

Basic information

Feature is a special layout option that is available for the Content widget. This layout lets you showcase a collection of content pages on a special topic that is important for your audience (such as elections or the death of a public figure). The Feature layout includes a gray background for increased visibility on the page.

This layout supports exactly five items. If you add more than five items, the extra items are not displayed. If you add fewer than five items, a blank space is visible on the widget.

Build a Feature widget

The following pages and segments might include a Feature widget:

  • Section pages (including your homepage)
  • Infopages
  • Landings
  • You Might Also Like (YMAL)

To build a Feature widget:

  1. Go to Build in the primary navigation.
  2. Choose the type of page / segment where you want to display the widget.
  3. Select the specific page / segment where you want to display the widget.
  4. Ensure Editor is selected in the left panel.
  5. Click the empty Feature layout block.
  6. Select New widget > Content to start building a new Feature widget.

The remaining options are the same as for creating a standard Content widget.

Add a Feature layout block

To build a new Feature widget, you first need an empty Feature layout block. Identify this special layout block as follows:

  • Via the Editor view, the Feature block is gray.
  • Via the Layout view, the Feature block is gray and marked Special.

If an empty Feature layout block is not currently available, you can add it:

  1. Select Layout in the left panel.
  2. Scroll to the place where you want to add the block. Click Add block.
  3. Select Feature under Special.

The layout block is added. Go to the Editor view to build the Feature widget.
