Creating a component design

When you have a new component type that is going to be used within your project you can create a new design for it.

Note

Depending on your permission settings, you may not be able to create designs. Contact your administrator for assistance.

  1. Go to the Designer module and select Create design.
  2. Select the Component type from the list of design types.

  1. Complete the design form, see Creating designs.
  2. Confirm settings in the left panel and select Create.

    The completed design is displayed in the right panel. A basic custom component design has no system attributes associated with it.

  3. You should now customise the design by adding attributes to the design, which can then be used to create component items.
