Sponsor


This topic explains how to create a sponsor in Brightspot.

To create a sponsor:

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

After you save your sponsor, you can use it in assets such as articles, galleries, and listicles.

  • External—A Call to Action button is displayed. In the URL field, enter the URL of an external asset that visitors view when clicking on the button.
Using the Call to Action Advanced tab





When setting up an internal or external call to action, you have the option to set how the link will behave.





External—Advanced tab



  • Target—Specify whether the target of the Call to Action should open in New Window/Tab or Same Window/Tab.
  • Attribute—Click add_circle_outline to add an attribute to the link.



    • Name—Enter the name of the attribute. For example, Title.
    • Value—Set the value for the attribute. For example, Brightspot Home Page. This appends Title="Brightspot Home Page" to the URL of the external link specified in the Call to Action.

  • Attribute—Click add_circle_outline to add an attribute to the link.



    • Name—Enter the name of the attribute. For example, Title.
    • Value—Set the value for the attribute. For example, Brightspot Home Page. This appends Title="Brightspot Home Page" to the URL of the external link specified in the Call to Action.
  • Anchor—If the asset you are linking to has anchors present, such as a page with tabs, you can select items within the tabs to which to anchor. Then when your visitors click the Read More button, they are taken directly to that content.
