How to Update this Component
When content managers add this component to a content section, they will see four tabs across the top. The Component tab is where content managers will name their components internally on the backend. This setting is for organizational purposes, and this information will never be public to users on the front end.
The next tab the content manager will see is the General tab, and this is where they can add their heading to the component. Content managers also have the option to add a subheading to this component in the field below. The next field is where they will be able to allow the icons to appear within this component. This is a dropdown field that has the option yes and no.
The next tab is labeled Items, and this is where the content manager will add the items and their labels. By default, the item tab will be open, and the content managers will see where they can select their icon from the dropdown list, and the item’s label.
The first setting they will see is the Type, where they can choose to either manually enter the content in the fields below or dynamically pull in the content from an existing published post. The settings below are only available if the type selected is manual entry.
