Configuration of your thematic page

On the left side of the editing page is the editorial content.
On the right side of your page, there is a preview of your content page updated in real time.

The editing part allows to add elements and page blocks like a CMS.

A block has different sections:

  • The title
  • General description
  • The visualization you want to present
  • The associated datasets which allow you to choose the datasets to highlight.
  • An accented text which allows to highlight an important text such as an information, a success, a warning or an error.

You can use the following video as an example to complete your first block:

Once your block has been edited, click on the pencil to exit edit mode.
You can then create multiple custom blocks.

After adding different blocks, you can publish your page so that it is accessible to visitors to your portal.
For an opendata portal, your page must be public to be available to visitors of your portal.
