Using This Component

This component initially has two tabs: News List Module and List.  An additional tab appears after the Build list using option is chosen.

Note: this component is essentially a List Builder, without the 'Display as' settings.

Split long lists onto several pages.

Lists with more than 500 teasers will generate a server error and not show any results. More details are in this Known Issue.

Technical Restrictions

  • This component is only available for use in the right sidebar and on some homepages.
