Anatomy of Widget Displays

Structure of Widget Displays

Referring to the image above, key regions of Widget Displays are outlined below.
Main Display
This represents the entire published Widget Display, as it appears on a webpage where it is embedded.

Content Region
Area where actual content, or Tiles are shown. The layout of Tiles in this region depends on the selected Theme for the Display. See Widget Display Styles for further details on customising the styling of this region.

Inline Tile (2a)
A single Tile (item of content). See Inline Tiles in Widget Displays for details on customisation and styling options.

Optional banner that can be configured to show a logo or title text, and links that either point to external websites or refine the Tiles shown in the Display. See Customising Banners in Widget Displays for further details.

Expanded Tiles

An Expanded Tile refers to the enlarging and highlighting of a single Inline Tile. Since Widget Displays are interactive (intended to be shown in websites and apps), your audience can interact with it, for example, hovering on Product Hotspots, clicking Product CTAs, or clicking on Inline Tiles to Expand them.

You can use Widget Displays with Product Hotspots and CTAs to distribute authentic social proof at different points in your customer’s journey. See Expanded Tiles in Widget Displays for further details on layout and styling options.


Adverts are branded or sponsored content and are a great way to push promotional, messaging and advertising content to your audiences. Your audience can interact with Adverts in Widget Displays by clicking on them and be directed to external URLs for more information.

Adverts can be either images or videos and can be added into the mix of content at configurable intervals. See Adverts in Widget Display for further details on adding and customising Adverts in Widget Display.
