This feature is specific to Clearvale Enterprise.

The Communities widget lists all of the communities defined for your network. Click the community image or name to display the detail page for the community.

Notes about this widget:

  • This widget can appear on any page in your network.
  • To change the way content is displayed in this widget, click Edit and change the settings:
    • By default, eight communities are listed. You can change it to show more or fewer communities.
    • You can change the title “Communities.” For example, you might change it to “Network Communities.”
    • You can control who can see this widget.
    • BETA: If you have a hybrid network, place a checkmark next to the type of communities to show in the widget. Options are:
      • Show Internal Communities
      • Show Guest Communities
      • Show External Communities
  • To create a community, click Add Community at the bottom of this widget. Follow the prompts on the screen to define your community. You can make the community open (anyone can join) or invitation only, in which case you need to invite network members to join your community.
  • This widget does not necessarily display all of the communities defined for your network. To see all of the communities in your network, click the More link in this widget. Note also that some communities may be private or configured to not be visible to all people.

You must have the Owner, Supervisor, Administrator, or Moderator role to create a community. Additionally, your network may be configured to allow Writers to create communities.
