Content Placeholder Widget for Post Types​

The Content Placeholder widget is a dynamic placeholder for use in content layout templates that, when displayed within a template, will show the excerpt or description of a post.

How to use it

  1. Add or edit a section template.
  2. Design the layout of the template, adding the Content Placeholder widget in the position where the post excerpt or description will display.
  3. Assign the section template – either as the default for the whole site or for specific post types.


  • The Content Placeholder widget for post types is only available when editing section templates.
  • It is not necessary to use this widget in content templates.
  • Content templates, whether using the Content Placeholder widget or not, can also used for post types when displayed using the Posts widget.
