Call To Action Text Property ("See More" Buttons)

FieldLabelDescription
DYNAMICCTATEXTPROPERTYCall to action text propertyPick a metadata property, values of which can be related to articles to override text in "see more" buttons

"See More" Buttons

In the various panels of the Home template, and in the panels that appear as slides in carousels around the site, a button with the text "See More" is displayed, which acts as a link to the full article of that panel.

See More Metadata
 The button text can be customised as follows:

  1. In the subsite configuration select a metadata property using the "Call To Action text property" picker. The property name doesn't matter.
  2. In the metadata library create metadata values beneath this property. Each value is the text you would like to use instead of "See More". The accompanying image shows some examples.
  3. Relate one of these metadata values to the article which is appearing in the carousel or homepage panel. The value will override the "See More" text. Note that the article "blocks" on the homepage (the ones placed side by side) cannot have their button text changed.
