Page thumbnail and summary

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.

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.

Add thumbnails and page summaries to a page

  1. Under Page settings, hover over the Add page summary text box and click the Edit (pencil) icon.
  2. Add your summary, then click Save to display the summary wherever the article is referenced.

Display a page summary on a page

Default MindTouch page templates automatically display the page summary, but you can also manually display the page summary on individual pages.

  1. Open a page in Edit mode and from the Editor toolbar, select Style > DekiScript.
  2. In the the DekiScript container, enter the following code:
    template('MindTouch/Controls/PageOverview');
    
  3. Save the page.

Update or remove a thumbnail

To change a page thumbnail, hover over the thumbnail and select the Edit (pencil) icon.

To remove a page thumbnail, hover over the thumbnail image in Page settings and click the Delete (X) icon.
