How to display content on a page

Once you add content to Sitefinity, you'll need a widget to display your content. Start by creating a page or navigating from Pages to an existing page where you want to display content. You'll see all the widgets in the right column of your screen.


 

Sitefinity editable widget
Editable widgets (pencil icon) allow you to display images, videos and documents, and write copy directly on the page to go with them. Drag an editable widget from the right column onto your page. Choose Create Content or click in the widget to add content. Choose Edit to select how you want the content to display.

 

Sitefinity content type widget

Content type widgets (pancakes icon) draw from content you've already created. Drag a content type widget from the right column onto the page. The entire library for that content type will appear. Choose Edit to select what content you want to display and how you want it to display.
