Snippets are a very helpful and easy to use feature of the software. For any given page, a large body of content can be replaced within any content block or template by just a small "snippet" of code. One use could be to replace large chunks of content that appear across numerous templates with a Snippet tag to cut down on a considerable amount of code.
You can find the Snippet page under Site Manager from the My Apps menu button, or if already within the Site Manager Module, select Snippet from the top navigation. A list of created Snippets are listed to edit, or create a new one with the Add a New Snippet button in the top right of the screen.
On the New Snippet screen, you can assign a Snippet name, and a unique tag will be automatically created (it will take on the form of "ap_snippet:your-snippet-name" enclosed in curly brackets). Below this, simply insert the content or code that you wish to contain within the Snippet Tag into the text block. For your convenience, a list of established Core Tags are listed on the right-hand side of the screen for easy reference.
After saving the new Snippet, it can be inserted into your page or template for use on the corresponding page.
