Editing a content item

Here's the content editing form for a simple banner content item that was created previously. To delete the background image, just hover over the image icon until the trash can icon appears. Then click this icon to delete the image. The image will be deleted and you can choose a new one to add.

Of course you can also edit any of the other forms in the banner. In this example we're editing the subheading to "Grab some bargains!". Once the change is made we click the Save button.

There are a number of other options available from the save menu, including renaming the content item and save as. For more information see saving content.

Editing linked content

Linked content is also easy to edit, as we'll show with the example of the carousel.

To open the carousel for editing, choose "View" from the item's contextual menu or double-click the item to open it.
