Featured links are styled and grouped buttons that link out internally or externally. They are helpful when guiding navigation in featured sections or listings, and emphasizing links to important pages.

For example, you could use featured links to create navigation for a department page, or create links to key pages in that section of your site.


Insert featured links

Featured links are available for any page with a WYSIWYG Editor. To insert Featured links:

  1. Create or update a page using a content type with a WYSIWYG Editor and open the editor.
  2. Place your cursor in the body content area where you want to insert the Featured links.
  3. Select the Insert featured links icon from the WYSIWYG Toolbar.
  4. Use the Insert featured links menu to create your links.
  5. Select Insert to place your links in the body content.
  6. Select Save Content And Close to exit the WYSIWYG Editor when you're done editing.
  7. Publish your page.


Featured links options

These are the options for inserting Featured links:

You can also use the content selector icon to navigate and link to an internal page. Selecting a page through this option will autofill the Link Name field.

Select a layout option for the featured link block. The darker box represents the Title if you added one, while the remaining boxes represent the layout of multiple links. There are four options for layout; ensure you use the right layout to fit your page.

Once inserted, your Featured links will appear in the WYSIWYG Editor as a green widget. You can edit your links at any time by right-clicking on the featured link widget and selecting Edit featured links, or by selecting the widget and using the Insert featured links icon.
