Guide for Entry Editor Elements


We have created this guide as a comprehensive list of Entry Editor layout elements, complete with detailed information on each element and its usage

Entry Editor Element Wrapper

We have an Entry Editor Element wrapper that allows you to add various elements, styles, and custom code to enhance your editorial experience. This wrapper includes the following options:

  • Entry Editor Mode:
    • Values: Default, Regular, Stepped, Tabbed
    • Descriptions:
      • Default and Regular: Display the Entry Editor view as seen when you click on 'Add Post.'
      • Stepped: Presents a stepwise arrangement and input method.
Tabbed: Displays a tabbed view in the Entry Editor, allowing for multiple tabs.
  • Post Layout: This dropdown contains a list of all active post layouts. If you want articles created by the custom Entry Editor to be published with a specific post layout, you can select it here.
  • Default Post Sections: Choose the sections where the post will be placed by default when creating an article using this custom Entry Editor. It displays the entire list of sections, and you can select multiple sections if needed.

Row/Column

Rows and columns function similarly to those used in other layouts. They are primarily used for organizing multiple elements on a page

Custom HTML

If you want to add custom HTML, including any custom code or scripts, to the Entry Editor, you can do so using the Custom HTML element.

Element Wrapper

This element can gather other different elements together to achieve a desired design, avoiding any errors while formatting.

Confirm Dialog

It will show a pop-up before publishing, updating, or unpublishing the post. You can edit the placeholders, message, and button text for this dialog box.

Leading media

The Lead Media element is used to add the main image to an article. It has three settings:

  • Required Checkbox: If checked, this setting makes the lead media image mandatory. If an image is not added, a validation popup will appear.
  • Disable Add Tags Dialog: When an image is added, a popup displaying default tags appears. Checking this option will skip the popup.
  • Disable Multiple Selection on Search: If you do not want editors to select multiple images while adding lead media, check this option. It will restrict the upload to a single image at a time for lead media.

Headline

The Headline element is used to add the main title of the article. You can add a placeholder to this field and mark it as optional. If you check 'Allow HTML,' it will enable formatting options for the headline. You can also set a maximum character count for the headline.

Subheadline

Similar to the Headline, but as a supportive summary text for your post. It can also be customized as a required field, adding a placeholder text, and can have a character limit set on it.

Authors

This element will display the author of the text in the post. You can disable the fields “Add Author” and “Add Community”, so the author will be only the person who created the post, and no additional authors will be added manually.

If you choose to keep the fields enabled, you can add a filter, so the authors shown while manually adding will only correspond to the group selected, e.g. “Guest Editor” group.

Body

The Body element is where the post text is written. There are many additions you can make to this element:

  • Is required: Mark it to make it mandatory to have a body text in your post;
  • Enable resize and float on images: this enables you to customize the images within your post body text, resizing it or floating the image between the text.
  • Turns off automatic converting text to link on Return key or paste: mark this if you don’t want to paste phrases copied with links directly on your text.
  • Allow HTML comments: Mark this to disable comments in the HTML code part of the text
Assign “rel=nofollow” attribute to external links as default: mark this to mark all external links with “nofollow” tag, so search engines will ignore those links.

Right Rail

You can utilize this element to add Right Rail tabs. You also have the option to include expand/collapse functionality for the right rail.

Topbar

The Top Bar serves as your fixed compass — a way for visitors to navigate their way around your site and be introduced to your brand. Therefore it's best to keep it simple. A prominent logo, clean section links, share buttons, and a search bar are typically all you need at the top.

Post Custom Field

This widget allows you to set a custom field to be added to your post. You can choose among a vast variety of options in the dropdown.

Product Details

To create an e-commerce module, you can add the Product Details widget and place some placeholders for both the Full Price and the current Price for the product.

Pay with Stripe Button

This element adds a stripe button for users to finish their transactions. For this, you need to add:

  • Button Caption: The text that will be displayed on the button
  • Stripe Public Key: This key is provided by Stripe when you have an account with them
  • Amount: The price of the purchase
  • Company Name: The name of your enterprise
  • Reditect to: You can choose to redirect to a URL or to another step created previously
  • Redirect URL: The URL that will be redirected

UI text

It is a text element to guide your user using some UI indications while in Entry Editor.

Post creation date, Embargo date, Unpublished datetime

Each of those elements adjusts the way your post is published or not.

The Post creation date shows the date when the post was created.

The Embargo Date will “block” the publication of the post until the date chosen. It is similar to a Scheduled Publishing, but you cannot publish before the chosen date.

The Unpublished Datetime will show the date when the post was unpublished. A post can be manually unpublished or scheduled to be unpublished.

Post sections

The Post sections element will allow you to select and attribute a section to your post, among all the sections created in your CMS.

Post status

This element adds a dropdown to change the status of the post from publish to draft and vice versa.

Private comments

You can enable the Private Comments element in Layout & Design Tool to show internal team comments in Entry Editor.

Extension

This element will group different extension items, called “Extension Item”.

This Extension Item element allows you to select some actions on a drop-down "Execute On" then it will return something like one of the options below:

  • On post creation: It can be used to initialize data on post creation like default authors, tags, etc.
  • After load: this is loaded after the “on post creation” and the editor UI is already loaded, it can be used to modify some UI interfaces.
  • Before Save: is called every time the post is saved.
  • Before Publish/Update: is called before making live the changes in the public site, there is not difference between publish and update.
  • Before Schedule: here the post is still draft *but* will be published automatically so the most probable is if you need to do something before publishing, you should apply here too.
