  2. Click ‘Edit page’
  3. Enable page builder by clicking on the ‘Pagebuilder’ tab , if there is no option to click on the tab, the pagebuilder layout is enabled.

  8. Hover over the document list widget and click edit
    • Add widget title
      • This can be ‘Documents’ if it is a department document page, since the page title widget will display the title as [Department] documents.  For example, The Administration department will have the page title ‘Administration documents’ therefore naming the list ‘Administration documents’ is redundant.
    • Pick the category(ies) to display
      • If the parent category is selected, it will also display all its corresponding  sub categories
    • Select display style
      • Documents are commonly  displayed in the ‘List View’ style but you can always go back and change the style that best matches your ProudCity site.
    • Insert a number of post to show in the ‘Number of post to show’ field
      • Enter 0 for all documents to show  under the selected category type  or select specific amount to list.
