Displaying Content

You can display content in various ways. The option you choose depends on the type of asset you want to display, how many assets you want to display at once, and how you want your content to be viewed.

Asset Publisher

The Asset Publisher displays multiple pieces of content at a time. It can display any kind of asset.

You can specify which assets to display. For instance you can display only assets that meet specific conditions, such as specific tags or keywords. You can manually create a static collection of assets, or you can configure it to select content dynamically on the fly. Read Using the Asset Publisher Widget to learn more.

Display Page Template

A Display Page Template defines how your web content is organized and formatted on a page. When the full web content is viewed through the Asset Publisher or its friendly URL, it’s displayed on its own page, based on the Display Page Template. Read Using Display Pages to learn more.

Other Methods

If you need to embed content from another URL, you can use the IFrame widget. For instance, you can include multimedia (videos, interactive elements, etc.) or display advertisements in the iframe.
