These teaser portlets are included with the Content Template Catalog.
When an author drags the Teaser portlet onto the page, a Teaser item is created in the Teasers area under the current page. The author can then edit the teaser and insert any rich text content. The person who designs the site should provide a set of header and footer styles to provide teaser formatting for different purposes. You can use the Teaser Reference portlet to reuse a teaser across pages without creating a content item. An author must edit the shared settings of the portlet to reference an existing Teaser.
The following examples show a teaser that displays hero text, a type of banner text that stands out on the page so readers see it immediately.
The first example shows the teaser text in the main column.
The second example shows the teaser text in the sidebar column. The “contentHero” styling reformats the teaser for the sidebar.
