How to Use the Video Listings Component
When a content manager selects a Video Listings component from the component dropdown list, they will see four tabs within the component’s settings. The first tab reads Component, and this 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 tab to the right of the Component tab is the General tab, where the content manager can specify a heading or description text for this component if they choose. This tab does not have any required fields, meaning that the content manager can leave it blank if they choose or if it makes sense in terms of content.
The tab to the right of the General tab is labeled Videos, and this is where the content manager will add the videos they want to be listed within this component. The content manager will first select the video from the media library, and then in the field to the right, they will add a title for the video. The video title is not a required field. To add an additional video to the listings, click on the ‘Add Component’ button that appears in the red circle in the image above
