  • Auto: The leftmost slider position. The height of the widget will increase and decrease to contain what it is displaying.
  • Fixed: Select a fixed height between 50px to 600px in increments of 50px. A vertical scrollbar will appear on the widget if the content exceeds this fixed value.
Appearance tab


Your digital workplace's theme overwrites many of the settings on the Appearance tab. However, the settings listed above are usable.

Using it

The feed displays shared articles ordered by their published date, with more recent articles appearing at the top. These properties of a shared article are displayed in the feed: 

  • Title (links to the article in the hub)
  • The first image
  • Summary
  • Author Name
  • Creation Date
  • Channel Name (links to Blog Channel in the Hub)

Selecting the Title or Channel Name provides navigation to the corresponding locations in the hub. Since these locations reside in the hub, the hub's access rules determine to what extent users can interact with these locations.

Image sizes

Custom themes may result in different dimensions than what is listed below.

The size and shape of the image thumbnail are dependent on the position of the widget and the screen width:

  • Narrow side column:
    • Above a 770px browser width, the image size is 220 x 140.
    • Below a 770px browser width, the image size is 675 x 140. 
  • Any other column:
    • Above a 640px browser width, the image size is 180 x 180.
    • Above a 640px browser width, the image size is 555 x 180.

Due to how images can be cropped to fit these sizes, it's best to use images with content in the center of the image.
