Previewing Content Updates| Hitchhikers Platform

Overview

Often you will want to make changes to data in your Knowledge Graph but preview how it will impact your site before you officially make the update. This is where page previews come in:

Page previews are powered by a combination of Pages and the Knowledge Graph Suggestions system (refer to our Suggestions module to learn more). Any time you provide a suggestion for one or more fields, you can preview how those changes will look on your live production pages!


User Workflow

Previewing content updates is easy, and can be accomplished from two areas in the UI:

  1. Entity Edit
  2. Suggestions Edit

Let’s walk through both:

Entity Edit

  1. You can “preview” all requested edits for a given entity from the “Entity Edit” screen.
  2. Once you have updated a field and requested an edit, you can preview how they will look on your pages by clicking the “Generate Page Previews” button.

  3. From there, select which sites you want to preview. The Pages system will generate the preview URLs and return them to you. The system will also return the current live production page, so you can compare the differences side-by-side!

Suggestions Edit

  1. You can preview each suggestion on your pages from the Suggestions workflow screen as well. Click on “Suggestions” in the left-hand menu and you will see a list of all suggested edits in your Knowledge Graph. Using the Suggestions workflow comes in handy if you want to quickly preview any content before approving a suggestion.
  2. When you click into each suggested edit, you will see the current field value and suggested edit. You can then generate a page preview per suggested edit by clicking “Generate Page Preview”. See screenshot below.

  3. From there, select which sites you want to preview. The Pages system will generate the preview URLs and return them to you. The system will also return the current live production page, so you can compare the differences side-by-side!
