WidgetsOn Pages we show how to create a page, and add widgets to your page. This document will explain the different widgets you can add to your page. Widgets can also be used to add your own custom online forms to pages; you can read about these widgets on Online Form Widgets.
Text boxWith the text box you can add rich text to your page, to write a quick note or an important document for example. Adding text works much like you're used from a normal word processor. You can add formatting, insert links to other websites or Papyrs pages, and highlight text. More about editing and formatting on the Pages page.
HeadingAdd headings to your page to divide your page document in different sections. You can choose the style of the heading from the dropdown menu in the toolbar, see the screenshot below:
AttachmentWith the attachment widget you can add all kind of files to your pages, and easily share the files with your team. Adding attachments is very easy, in the Attachment dialog (see screenshot below), simply choose the files you wish to upload. If you have a modern web browser, it is also possbile to directly drag files from your computer (e.g. Explorer in Windows or Finder on the Mac) to Papyrs, by dropping them on the "Drop files here to upload" area. You can upload multiple files at the same time.
After you added attachments to your page, when you edit the page you can modify (add and remove files) the attachment widget by clicking Edit as shown in the following screenshot:
ChecklistChecklists are great way to create a list of items you and your team members can check off. Think about lists of to-do's for a project, people attending a meeting, or steps you need to complete before takeoff.
Image(s)With the Image(s) widget you can add an image or a image gallery with thumbnails to your page. Creating a new image gallery is very easy. In the Image Gallery dialog (see screenshot below), you can upload a single image file, or multiple image files you want to add to your image gallery. Uploading works similarly to uploading attachment files (see Attachment), so you can drag & drop multiple image files at the same time. Papyrs automatically creates thumbnails of your pictures, and you can select the size of thumbnails you wish to display on your page. You can also set the alignment (left, right, or center), and change the order of the images by dragging them around. To remove an image from the gallery, double click on it.
After you added the image gallery, you can edit (add, remove and re-arrange images) the image widget by clicking Edit on the top-right corner of the widget.
DiscussionAdd the Discussion widget anywhere on your page to add a comment area and allow discussions about the page.
Media WidgetThe Media Widget can be used to add all kinds of (social) media to your page. For example, you could show the latest mentions and buzz about your company on Twitter directly on a page. After adding a Media Widget, in the dialog (see screenshot below), select the type of media you want to add to your page. You can add Tweets, YouTube videos, Google Docs, Google Maps, and a Google Calendar to your pages. If you need some other or custom widget, click the "Other widgets" tab and copy-paste the HTML code for this widget there (only IFRAMEs and flash objects are supported).
NavigationYou can add easy navigation to other pages by adding the Navigation widget. You can place this widget anywhere on your page, for example in the sidebar. Or you could add different types of navigation widgets to create a dashboard page about recently commented and changed pages. In the Page navigation widget dialog (see screenshot below), you can choose the type of navigation you wish to add. You can choose between:
- Favorite pages - A list of pages which are marked as favorite
- Recently changed pages - A list of pages which were recently changed
- Recent comments - A list of pages to which new comments were recently posted
- Recent form submissions - A list of pages with a form that was recently submitted
- Table of contents - Generate a table of contents, based on the Headings for this page
- Categories - Show a tree with (sub-)categories and pages
Note: users only see pages they have access to in the navigation widget.
