Editor's Picks

Exclusive to the Editorial theme, the Editor's Picks content set allows you to display handpicked items in a two-by-two column layout. This is a great way to feature news items that you want to have a presence on your website past their chronological publication date.

The display features the items' title, Main Image (optional) and summary text, and it supports Article pages, General Content pages and Promotions.

As with all content sets, the content that will be featured must be created first.
