ZenHub houses documentation to support you if you’re using Contensis Classic. Contensis Classic includes our WYSIWYG and templating features. If you’re working with a newer version of Contensis, is your go-to place to find anything Contensis-related when building with content types.

Use localised literal text in templates

The Multilingual package allows websites to display specific elements of content in different language versions. Users of Contensis must be licensed for use of the Multilingual features. 

Adding a localisation

  1. Access the Management Console and select Localisation.
  2. Using the filter option, click on the drop down arrow for the Resource Type field and select Custom.
  3. This will refresh the screen, and display an Add new custom Resource button in the bottom toolbar.
  4. Then add a meaningful description to the Current Description field (e.g. Email S.Roberts link located in the Base template).
  5. If the text requiring to be localised is a hyperlink, then the entire HTML tag will need to be added.
  6. And, if the value entered contains HTML elements, ensure the 'Is Current Value HTML?' checkbox is ticked before pressing Save.
  7. Locate the newly created item by either filtering by Resource Type and selecting the Custom option, or by entering part of the value that you set in the value field. Once located, remember this ID, as it will be required for the next step in the procedure.

Using Localised Literal Text in Templates

  1. Edit the template you want to add the localised literal text in to.
  2. Select the text in where you want the localised text to appear.
  3. Right click and Insert Web Control, followed by Localisation then you can choose the Localised Literal Text option. A window will popup.
  4. Set the Localisation ID that you located previously, and press Save.
