What we call editorial blocks: is a block of text written and updated (according to the frequency of sending the newsletter) by journalists allowing them to introduce the different subjects covered in a newsletter.
In this tutorial, we will see how to integrate an editorial block, without having to modify the template daily, i.e., each time the editorial block is changed.
To do this, we will need to use an "editorial variable" since these are the only ones we can configure manually independently of the feeds.
Add an editorial block in the newsletter
- Go to the "Variables" tab.
- Click on the "Add a variable" button and name it.
3. Return to the template tab (we will add the content in the variable later).
4. If you haven't already done so, add a new "paragraph" block in the newsletter to host the editorial (in this example, we will place it below the Mediego logo).
5. You should see the text editor appear. Add the corresponding variable by unfolding the "Editor Variable" menu.
6. Format the text as you wish to use the features of the text editor.
7. Save the template and go back to the "Variables" tab.
8. Select the variable Editor (or another one) and then in the "Value" section, add the text you want.
9. Check in the "Template" or "Editorial" tab that the text inserted in the variable is displayed.
You can add as many variables as you want in a text block. It is therefore possible to create two variables to build the editorial block (one of the title and the other for the text).
