  5. Search for the field or component units to add. Drag the content unit to the presentation's layout in the Design tab workspace.

    Note: Dragging the content unit to the layout in the Design tab workspace renders the content unit immediately. You can edit the content unit via the Design tab workspace or In-Context Editing (ICE).

      Version Notes: CMS 10.1+
      Prior to Ingeniux CMS 10.1, Page Builder designers needed to add placeholder content to new presentation content units (PCU) at design time. As of CMS 10.1+, if content has not been added at design time, a placeholder (i.e., Add New Content button) displays, automatically. Designers can determine the layout of the content units before passing the page, with its new PCU, to a content contributor, who provides the content itself. After saving these "pending" content units, they display:

      PCU Placeholders

      Once a content contributor selects the PCU, the Use Existing Component and the Add New Content buttons display. The content contributor adds content via one of these options. If no existing components are available, the Use Existing Component button displays as inactive.
  7. Click Save or Check In to commit changes. The added content units display in the Edit tab's Presentation Fields element group.
  8. Optional: Click Design > Preview to see how the design displays on the live site.
