How to Add Content Snippets

 

ProProfs Knowledge Base lets you place content snippets (small pieces of customizable content) anywhere on your help site pages. The main advantage of using content snippets is that you can place them at different locations on your website without repeatedly writing the exact text.

 

Benefits of using a content snippet:

  • Prevents you from repeatedly writing the same information.

  • Saves time while placing the exact text at different locations on your website.

  • Edit the snippet once, and the changes will reflect across all instances where it is placed.

  • Maintain consistency across the help site.

 

In this article, you’ll learn:
