How to insert preformatted content into a page using a Content Wizard

A 'Content Wizard' is a program used to insert a block of predefined HTML content into a page. Content Wizards can create dynamic content which is automatically updated by the CMS.

Choose the Content Wizard you want from the drop-down box and press 'Select'.

The options that appear depend on the Content Wizard chosen. There may be several pages of options. Enter the options required.

When all options have been set the finished content will appear. Press 'OK' to insert the content into your page.
