Promos & Lists
August 05, 2019 08:28 AM
Promos are some of the building blocks of Brightspot. Whenever you want to refer to another page using its title, description or image, Brightspot helps you by automatically pulling that information into a promo.
August 05, 2019 11:22 AM
Use Brightspot Lists to display a list of promos. These can be dynamically generated to show things like the most recent articles, or finely controlled to specify exactly which items appear in which order.
