Customize content by using content snippets
Content snippets are small chunks of editable content that can be placed by a developer on a page template, allowing for customizable content to populate any portion of a page's layout easily. Snippet controls, which are responsible for rendering the content of snippets on the web-facing portal, are placed on a page template by developers.
Snippets can be edited either through the Portal Management app. The main power of the snippet is the fact that you can abstract a bit of content (other than the main copy of the page) and edit it separately, allowing essentially any static content on your site to be fully content-managed and editable.
Open the Portal Management app.
Go to Portals > Content Snippets.
To create a new snippet, select New.
To edit an existing snippet, select an existing Content Snippet in the grid.
Enter values for the following fields:
|Name||The name can be used by a developer to place the snippet value into a page template within the portal's code.|
|Website||The website that is associated with the snippet.|
|Value||The content of the snippet to be displayed in the portal. This can contain plain text or HTML markup.|
