Create a banner content item

  2. On the Overview of Content Items page, click Add Content Item > Banner.
  3. On the Create Content Item: Banner page, enter a NAME.
  4. Optional: Enter a DESCRIPTION.
  5. On the Default tab, enter the following:
    • TITLE.
    • ALT-TEXT
  6. Optional: Repeat the previous step on the needed locale-specific tabs.
Multi-language setup

The following logic applies in a multi-language setup:

  • Locale-specific values overwrite the default values when the banner is rendered on a Storefront page with the locale selected.
  • If the fields are not filled out for a locale, the default values are displayed on a Storefront page with the locale selected.
  1. Click Save. This opens the Overview of Content Items page with a success message displayed. The content item is displayed in the list.

Tips and tricks

To clear all the fields on a tab, click Clear locale.
