  • [CMS] Different layouts for different sections?

    How do I tell a section to use a certain layout?

    It seems I'm using the central layout for every cms page (front and article), I'd like the article page 2 use a different layout...

    Also, how do I show more preview text for articles?

    Total CMS noob here, thanks in advance...

    Next to the section title, you can click on the pencil and edit the section including the layout, in "section information".

                Default is in AdminCP > settings > options > content management > default preview length.

                Per article is in the article editor, preview break (red line)
