Why add page summaries?
Page summaries are an important part of the search and navigation experience. The text of a page summary is displayed in both MindTouch and Google search results, and explains what the article is about to help users find what they are looking for. Page summaries are limited to 500 characters. MindTouch search results will display up to 200 characters of the page summary.
Page summaries added to templates are meant to be written as a description of the template. These pages are not indexed in MindTouch or Google search.
Why add thumbnails?
A page thumbnail is an image you can add to any article that will be leveraged in two different instances. They are displayed for your categories and guides and on search results pages to help users quickly filter by the appropriate category or guide.
