Freeform

This feature is specific to Clearvale Enterprise.

The Freeform widget lets you add almost any content to your network. To use this widget, place the Freeform widget on your page. Then click Edit to define the widget.

Notes about this widget:

  • This widget can appear on any page in your network.
  • To configure the content in this widget, click Edit and change the settings:
    • Use the editor to define the content. You can include formatted text, an image, a link, or a combination of these elements. To view a larger editor page, click the Full Screen button .
    • You may want to hide the Freeform widget title from your network users. To do so, set Hide Heading for Non-Admin Users to Yes.
    • You can change the title “Freeform.” For example, you might change it to “Daily Tip.”
    • You can control who can see this widget.

Note the following about the editor that allows you to create a freeform widget:

  • To create a link to a web page, use the Link button .
  • To remove the link, select the link and then click the Unlink button .
  • To create a callout quote, use the Block Quote button .
  • To work in HTML instead of the rich text editor, click the HTML button. Toggle back to the rich text editor by clicking HTML again.

To upload an image:

  • Click the  Upload/Insert Image button .
  • Click Browse.
  • Navigate to the image file to upload and double-click it. You can upload .jpg, .gif, and .png files. The image appears in the Add Images window.
    Select the image and then click Insert Selected Images.
  • If you have previously uploaded some images, you can click the Previously Added tab to see the images uploaded previously and add them to your freeform widget. You only see images that you uploaded to the network—not those uploaded by other network members. Select the image to upload and then click Insert Selected Images.
  • If you want to instead use an image URL, instead of uploading an image to your network, click Image URL. Paste in the URL for the image, wait for the image preview, and then click Insert Image.

To include a video,  see Embedding Video or Audio Files in Clearvale Content.

You can place  HTML <iframe> syntax directly in the Freeform editor. Or, you can click the HTML toggle and enter the <iframe> syntax directly in the HTML code for the Freeform content.
