Introducing You Might Also Like (YMAL)

What's inside this article:

Basic information

You Might Also Like (YMAL) is a segment that might be displayed on content pages. Regardless of which device is used to access your site, a YMAL is displayed below the main content on the page. The purpose of a YMAL is to promote other content that might be of interest and keep visitors on your site longer.

Build a YMAL

You can build a new YMAL or edit an existing YMAL from Pangea CMS.

Go to Build > You Might Also Like in the primary navigation.

Hit + Add new to build a new YMAL, or select the name of an existing YMAL to start editing it.

For detailed information, see the following article:

Choose widgets

You can add content to a YMAL using widgets. To learn about widgets, see the following article:

The content in each YMAL should be tailored to the audience for the connected Category. The following widget types are commonly included in a YMAL:

  • Content widget: Can be configured to promote the latest content pages from the connected Category.
  • Trends widget: Can be configured to list the current "trending" content pages from the connected Category.

To learn more about the listed widgets, see the following articles:

TIP: We suggest limiting the amount of content in each YMAL. It is important to consider that on mobile, the YMAL is displayed as one long list below the main content (each item occupies one row). A very long YMAL can create an overwhelming experience for mobile users.

Connect a YMAL to Categories

One YMAL might have multiple connected Categories. The YMAL is displayed on content pages from each connected Category.

Two methods are available for connecting a YMAL to a Category:
