Snippets are pre-configured pieces of content. Snippets are used to help ensure standard formatting, layout and design of page items. When using a snippet, you can edit the content (i.e. the text, files, or images), but the style, layout, and format of the content will stay consistent.

What Snippets Look Like

You may be wondering if you have any Snippets on your page. Use the examples below to know what to look for. 

You will see Snippets in two different ways. There is the live view of the snippet, which is the way the snippet looks on the live site. Review our Types of Snippets to see a full list of all snippets and how they look on the live site. 

Secondly, there is the Snippet Edit Table, which is the way the snippet looks inside the WYSIWYG editor. If you have snippets on your pages, you will use the Snippet Edit Table when you want to edit the content inside of them.
