Create a content spot

Use the Personalization Editor to create a placeholder for the rule that renders the selected content on a Web page. This placeholder is the content spot. Specify which rule to place in the content spot; this is called mapping the rule to the content spot or creating a rule mapping. In this example, the content is a resource collection.

Before you begin

Before you begin this procedure, ensure you have created the simple content rule Show Gold Offers for the Personalized Offers resource collection.

About this task

Note: You must use the same name as the original content spot's display name. Do not place the new content spots into a folder, unless your display name already includes slashes. Place them directly into the root Workspace.

Procedure

  1. Return to the root directory in the Personalization Navigator.
  2. Click New > Content Spot to display the Personalization Editor.
  3. Type Pzn_offersSpot in the title field of the content spot.
  4. Select Pzn_offers from the Output Type drop-down list.
  5. Click the button in the Default Mapping section.
  6. Expand the Pers Offers folder in the tree, select Show Gold Offers and click OK.
  7. Click Save.
  8. Test the content spot with the Personalization Editor portlet by selecting it in the Personalization Navigator and clicking the Preview tab in the Personalization Editor.
    Note: If the previous values appear on the Preview tab, the rule and content spot work.
  9. View the page with your Pers_Offers portlet.
