Adding Documents to a Page

Adding Documents to a Page

A document is not added onto a page by using any specific template like other multimedia components. Rather, text is hyperlinked to a document component, which allows for the user to download the document from your site once published.

Single Video Player

Video Players

Only videos from the YSM Media Library, YouTube, or Vimeo can be featured on your page(s). The components listed below make it easy for you to add these videos onto your page, whether published as a single video in the center or right column or as a Video Gallery Widget or Grid for multiple videos.

Audio Player

Audio Players

You can feature audio content on your website by inserting a Right Column Audio Player or multiple Audio Players to create a Music Gallery.
