Dynamic Promo module
A shared dynamic promo can appear in multiple pages. The promo can change over time depending on the sort and filtering criteria you configure.
Dynamic promos display a single promo. If you want to dynamically display more than one promo in a module, use a dynamic list. For details, see Creating a dynamic list.
To create a shared dynamic promo:
- In the header, click .
- From the Create list, select Dynamic Promo Module.
- Using the following table as a reference, complete the fields as needed.
- Complete your site's workflow and publish the dynamic promo.
Dynamic Promo fields
Click each tab below to see a description of the associated fields.
|Internal Name||Enter an internal name for this asset. Brightspot uses this name internally, such as in the search panel and recent activity widget. This name is not visible to visitors to your site.|
|Types||Select the content types included in this module.|
|Filtering||Select filtering criteria for this module. For information about the various filters, see Understanding dynamic list filters.|
|Sort||Select the sort order for this module.|
|Anchor||Modify the anchor to something that would make sense when appearing in an Anchor field's drop-down menu on another asset. This allows you to directly link to this module in another asset. Being specific makes it easier to identify in a list of other anchors.|
|Disable Dynamic De-Duplication||Toggle on to allow duplicate promos to appear on the page. Leaving this setting toggled off prevents duplicate promos from appearing on the same page.|
|Locales||Select All Locales, Current Locale, or Some Locales to determine the locale in which the dynamic page promo is displayed. This serves as an exclusion filter to prevent items in different locales from inappropriately populating the dynamic module.|
|Hide Description||Toggle on to hide the description of the asset contained in the list module. For example, toggling on this setting displays the Headline of an article, but hides the Description of an article contained in the list module.|
|Hide Image||Toggle on to hide the image included on the asset contained in the module.|
|Hide Publish Date||Toggle on to hide the publish date of the assets included in the module.|
|Hide Category||Toggle on to hide the category of the asset included in the module.|
|Hide Author||Toggle on to hide the author of the asset included in the module.|
Page Promo Module Styles
|Template||Select the template of this module from the list of options. Templates are visual presentation presets that differ depending on the type of module.|
|Preset||Hides line numbers when the code block is rendered on the front end. If any annotations present renders the line numbers regardless of this setting.|
|Promo Title Size||Overrides the default text size of the promo title as specified in your theme's CSS file.|
|Promo Description Size||Overrides the default text size of the promo description as specified in your theme's CSS file.|
|Locale||Choose a locale for the translation you want to submit.|
By default, Brightspot ensures the items in a dynamic promo appear nowhere else on the same rendered page. If you want to allow items in a dynamic promo to duplicate other promos on a rendered page, toggle on Advanced > Disable Dynamic De-Duplication.
