List Builder Component

Build lists of links (bullets, teasers or entire pages).

This feature works comparably in both the Classic and Flex UI versions of the UBCMS. In the future, screenshots and language will be updated to reflect Flex UI.

Using This Component

This component initially has only the List tab. A second tab with corresponding settings appears after the Build list using option is chosen.

Split long lists into several pages

Lists with more than 500 teasers will generate a server error and not show any results. More details in this Known Issue: Page editing slow / lists break when too many components are included.

In lists, teaser thumbnails are square to better support all image shapes. When present, the teaser will preferentially use an image in set in the Page Properties (see Page Properties: Image tab). Consider adding a customized image there in addition to what is on your page, or recrop what you have previously loaded there to work better as a square thumbnail.

Tip: Learn how to make a quick link to the top of your page.
