Content Placements

Gary Ploski Updated by Gary Ploski

Use placements to specify when and where content will appear.

A placement is a space that your website content can occupy on a specific webpage. That placement may be any number of spaces such as the logo, navigation bar, hero, carousel, email sign-up, footer, etc. Content can be associated with a placement via the Composer.

Select a Placement

  1. Navigate to a piece of content.
  2. Click the content card.
  3. Below Placement, click the dropdown arrows.
  4. Select the intended placement.
  5. Click “Save“ or “Save + Close.”
Tip: To see a preview of your content alongside other content scheduled for the current day, click "View Placements."
Note: Available placements are managed by an Opal admin. Contact your Opal admin if you have questions about the placement options available in your Opal.
