Manual liftups

Manual liftups can be used to display several links to HUBs and content pages. It includes a description of the content and a set of links.

To add content to the manual liftup, click the button "Select content" under "Content liftups list".

Manual liftups have four display modes: 

  • Small should be used for links that might not have an image and mainly need to display the title.
  • Mini liftup is for links with very small images; only the title is shown.
  • Medium is for links with images, also showing a summary text.
  • Accordion is for links with long summaries that need to be displayed. 

Small, Mini liftup, and Medium can be displayed with two themes: Default and Bright. Below are examples of all four display modes and the two themes.

Manual liftup component's display mode Medium

The component avoids the presence of gaps on a page, as the component's cards (or links) will adapt their sizes in order to occupy all of the available area.

See examples below of multiple cards utilised vs. just the one in the Manual liftup component.
