Editorial Layout Control

The Widget Framework is in general designed to enforce a separation of concerns between editorial staff and publication designers: editorial staff are responsible for content and organisation: designers are responsible for layout and functionality. For some organizations, however, this separation can be too strict, and there is a requirement to provide editorial staff some control over layout. This chapter describes the layout controls the Widget Framework can make available to editorial staff.

The functionality described here is available to editors when editing section pages. It mostly needs to be enabled by designers, however, and is only useful if designers have configured other components to make use of it.
