Automating a SmartFeed panel
Modify a SmartFeed panel
When using a manual selection (Static) SmartFeed panel, you can modify the heading and body copy, font and image of your chosen SmartFeed article.
In both a Static and Dynamic SmartFeed panel, you can select Edit from the panel editing toolbar to modify the panel layout and style. *
* If text or image content is modified in a Static panel, contacts will see the original content of the page when they click through to it, e.g.: even if you change the article title within your email panel, they will see the original title when they see the full article.
