Configure a view pane

Each view pane permits content creators to configure the view panes in many ways:

Override the title:

    If you would like to add a title to your view pane, select Override Title.
  2. 2.
    Select Finish.
  3. 3.
    Select the Settings option on the view pane and then type in your customized title.

    Then, Select Finish again.

  2. 2.
    Type in some descriptive "more" text that indicates where the link is going (ex. More Features).
  3. 3.
    Select Finish.

Categorizing view panes:

Taxonomy is used to categorize content so it is visible in desired locations. If you would like to categorize your view pane by using taxonomy:
  1. 1.
    Ensure the content type has a category.
  2. 2.
    Note down the term number that the category is associated with. The term number is located in the url on your screen (ex. https://.../term/109/...).
  3. 3.
    Add the term number to the Category space, when configuring your view pane.
  4. 4.
    Select Finish.
Always save the page when you are done customizing.
