Adding a Collection to a Page Layout

  • To add a collection to a page, start by adding a collection widget to a column. (If there is already a collection in the column, but you want to replace it with a different collection, go to Add the Collection below.)

    Add the Widget

    1. From the PageBuilder menu, click on the Widgets tab. The Widgets menu appears, showing the available widgets (content, collection, etc.)
    2. Click on the widget you want to add.
      • For a collection, choose IUP Collection. If you want to add regular content, choose IUPContent.
      • Blue boxes will appear on the page in all areas where the widget could be placed. Click on one of them.
    3. The Widget will appear in the column. (Note: columns and widgets will not appear until the mouse is moved over them.)

    Add the Collection

    The top of the Content Block Widget has three icons: Move, Edit, and Delete. To add a collection to the widget (or to replace a collection that is already in the widget), choose Edit (the pencil icon).

    1. The Collection Widget window will open. The top drop-down menu (Collection Id) shows every collection stored on your website. Select the collection you want to appear.
      • Normally, collection titles are not displayed, so “Display Collection Title” should remain unchecked.
      • “Teaser” should always be checked. This will allow the summaries of the items in the collection to be displayed.
      • “Page Size” should not be changed. This is the maximum number of items the collection can hold.
    2. Click the Save button.
    3. The page will reload, and the collection will appear on the page.

    You can add different collections blocks to the same column by adding another widget and repeating the procedures above. Each widget can only hold one collection.

    If you want different content or collection blocks to appear side by side, instead of in one column, you must add additional columns to the page.

    If you are finished editing the page layout, you must check in or submit the page layout from the PageBuilder menu.
