Brightspot makes publishing pages easy by showing you a side-by-side preview of your changes in real time. Virtually any user can publish a page with little to no training and with no help from IT. You can reorder modules with a drag-and-drop interface, create modules dynamically based on metadata and content filters, add a carousel for trending content and more. In this short demo, we’ll show you just how quick and easy it is to publish a page on Brightspot.
The above demo covers Brightspot federated search, a feature that requires no IT support in its setup. This functionality gives you the option to query a third-party site with an API, like Getty or YouTube, for images or videos—all without ever leaving the publishing tool. Once you gain access to a database’s content, you can import it directly into Brightspot. Then you can treat it like any other content type in Brightspot.
Let’s say you have access to the Getty Images database. Simply enter a search term in the Brightspot dashboard, and all available Getty photos will appear. This is a tremendous time-saver, as publishers don’t need to toggle back and forth between a separate site and the CMS. Everything from external content types is available to search within Brightspot. What’s more, you don’t need a separate team to help you manage images; instead, you can query for them, edit them and add the necessary metadata all within the CMS.
