Key Texts

Sometimes, an image upload is not enough. There are times where you need to update large portions of text that exist deep in your layout, or provide complex HTML instead of images. To address these needs, Web Cube provides a key text system. Key texts can be used for blocks of text where the copy could change often and it needs to be maintained from the admin.

After your keytext is added, you can add the following to your template:


{% load keytext_tags %}

{% keytext "your-keytext-key" %}


Just like a CTA, the keytext will be loaded and presented to the user. Unlike a CTA, no link is built in. If your keytext needs to have a link, it supports HTML, so you can add it as an HTML anchor.

If your keytext keys are updated, the templates that use them must be updated too. The best policy is to leave the keys untouched once the templates are completed.
