Creating and Adding a Card

John Doe John Doe

Cards are a great way to message new visitors or highlight content. 

 

Cards are semi-permanent messages that appear over your channel's sidebar. Unlike overlays which disappear after a set amount of time, cards remain over the sidebar until the user dismisses it themselves or it is manually removed by an admin. 

Creating and Adding a card can be done from the Editor or Panels tab in the admin bar.

In Editor:

  • Click the Editor tab from the admin bar
  • Hover over the sidebar and click EDIT
  • Follow steps 2- below

In Panels:

  1. Click Panels from the admin bar
  2. If you don’t see the header, sidebar Settings, click BACK in the top right of the sidebar
    •  When you enter the sidebar you’ll be taken back to wherever you left off last time you were in the sidebar
  1. Click Set Card
  2. Click on preview button to the right of the card to view an example in the preview window
  3. Click Use to select and start editing a card’s content
  4. After entering your content, click Save To Library
  5. Click the button next to the card to add it. You’ll see it in the Preview
  6. Changes will be saved automatically. Click PUBLISH to push changes live 

Editing and changing the card works similarly to Panels. To edit a card:

  1. Click the edit button next to the card
  2. To remove a card, click the X next to the card
  3. To switch to a different card, click Change Card. Click Library to pick from your previously added cards or click Catalog to create a new card
  4. Make sure to save your cards (check the top left of the site for the SAVED icon) and then click Publish to push changes live

Note: removing a card does not delete it. The card will still remain in your library and can be added later on.
