Brightspot Content Types Guide

Listicle


A listicle is an asset that consists of a list, such as a list of recommendations. Listicles are designed for use when a publisher wants to tell a story in list format—a list of top restaurants, or best museums to visit, or great sports teams.

Tip
If necessary, create and upload images you will use in the listicle. For details, see Image.


To create a listicle:

  1. In the header, click add.
  2. From the Create list, select Listicle.
  3. Using the following table as a reference, complete the fields as needed.
  4. Complete your site's workflow and publish the listicle.
