Embedding a product list module

You can embed a product list into the rich-text editor. The list contains a title, short description, promos of each included product, and a call-to-action button.

To embed a list of products in the rich-text editor:

  1. From the rich-text editor's toolbar, select image > Product List.
  2. Using the following table as a reference, complete the fields as needed.
  3. Click Save & Close.
Inserting or modifying an embedded enhancement does not automatically save the enhancement in the asset. Be sure to save or publish the asset containing this embedded enhancement.
