This tutorial shows you how to create a new Contensive Addon.
You should already have created a new developer site on your workstation.
Create an Add-on
- On the Admin Navigaor on the left, Open
Manage Add-ons >> Advanced >> click on Add-ons.
You will see a list of all the Add-ons installed on the site.
- Click the Add button to create a new Add-on.
You will see a new add-on record.
Set the name. I will use "Sample Addon"
In the Html Content box, enter "<b>Hello World</b>"
In the Placement tab, check "Place on Pages" and "Admin Navigator"
- Click OK at the top of the page to save the Add-on and exit the edit page.
- Execute the new addon.
On the Admin navigator on the left Open
Manage Add-ons >> Advanced >> Add-ons With No Collection >> click on Sample Addon.
You should see the words Hello World in bold on the left pane.
- Add the addon to a website page
Go to the public home of your website and turn on Quick Edit
Place the cursor in the page editor where you want your addon and select it from the Add-ons drop down. A green icon will appear when you place the addon in the copy.
Click OK to save and close the editor. Your addon will run here and show "Hello World" where you placed the icon.
