Content Droplets

ContentDroplets is available from BlueSpice 4.3.2.

To insert additional functionality in a wiki page, you can use Content droplets. Content droplets include tags that were previously accessed from Insert > Magic word in the editor toolbar. They also provide access to some templates that are preconfigured in the wiki, such as message boxes.

Adding a droplet to a page

To add a droplet to a page:

  1. Click the Content droplets icon in the editor toolbar or type <<.
  2. Search for a droplet name in the search bar of the droplets menu or browse the droplets by category.

  3. Select a droplet
  4. Click Insert.
Note:Some droplets open an inspector menu which contains another Insert button. Be sure to confirm that button as well.

Based on the type of droplet, you can continue with configuring the droplet as needed.
