    • The list pages are the system-provided pages having multiple rows of information, such as staff members, divisions, documents, courts, programs, schedules, sponsors, teams, etc. For all these pages, you can choose how the information should be displayed to the public visitors.
    • For example, if you have selected the display layout as Grid – 2 items, then the information on the fields web page will be displayed as shown below.
  • Max. items to display in widgets:
    • It shows the maximum number of items that will be displayed in every widget.
    • For example, suppose there are five news related content items in your organization and you have selected the maximum number of items to display in the widget as two. In that case, the news widget will display only two news-related content items with a high priority.
  • Archived content display status:
    • Select whether to show or not to show the list of content items that are marked as archived on the public website content pages. If selected to show, then they will be displayed under the archives section.
    • For example, suppose there is an archived article in your organization, and you have selected not to display the archived content, then the article will not be displayed on the website.
  • Social media share options on content pages:
    • Select whether you want to allow or restrict the visitors from sharing the content published on your organization’s public website on the various social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, etc.

  • Practices on the organization calendar:
    • Select to display or not display all team practice schedules on the organization calendar, along with matches and events.
