Adding Widgets to Pages

From the Content Search Manager, a Content Contributor or Webmaster can add Widget Content by choosing the desired Widget Content Type, and then clicking the “+Add New Content” button.

Widget content can also be created or re-used by clicking on the “+Add Content” button on any Container, and then choosing “Add Widget” from the drop-down list.

After selecting the Widget Content Type, an existing widget can be selected and re-used on the Page from the widget detail area, or a new Widget can be created by clicking on the “+Create New {Widget Type}” button.

In the example provided below, the user has selected “News Listing”, has set the new Widget title and has provided the filter parameters for displaying a dynamic listing of News content categorized as “Investment Banking”. These parameters determine how the News Listing content dynamically displays on the page.

After saving the News Listing Widget to the page, the filtered News Content list displays on the Page.  The News Listing Widget can be re-used on one or many Content Containers and as many dotCMS Pages as needed.  All dotCMS Content Containers allow the addition of Widgets and Forms - as well as the addition of specific Content Types that have been formatted to the Container.
