Example of Widget Use
Following is an example of the widget in use:
Where can the Widget be placed?
The widget can be used in the following templates:
- All Templates
|Option||Use||Comments||Available from Version|
|Description||A short description of the widget's use.||We recommended this field be updated so the widget's purpose is clear at a glance from the template page.||All|
|Layer||The layer the widget is valid for.|
The layering technology allows for the content to be shown to specific audiences.
This is handy if the content is only valid for a certain type of user, or if the same widget is required for more than one audience, but different configuration is needed.
The widget can be added to the zone more than once and the layer feature can determine which audience can see each widget.
