How to Add a Share Content Widget to an Article Display Page

You can access this feature from your MSL website. Only Content Editors with access to Website Admin can access the Website Pages window.

To enable sharing options, you will need to add the widget to the article display page, this will usually be https://[domainname]/news/article

To ensure the Share Content Widget appears on each article's webpage when viewed, go to the page properties of your news article display page and ensure the Include Page Content in Stub Pages option is selected. The widget will then be visible on the /news/article/ page and any stub pages, for example /news/article/[Article URL].

For further information, see News Widgets.
