Modules Intro | Yext Hitchhikers Platform

What You’ll Learn

In this section, you will learn:

  • What modules are
  • Examples of default modules


Modules are horizontal components of your page. Each page is made up of a series of modules. When you create a page and choose the entity type, you will see that the template is created with a set of default modules that are optimized for that entity type to help you get started adding content and building out your page.

By definition, modules are horizontal segments of content used to build your pages.

In the Page Builder, there is a wide variety of built-in modules that you can select from to build your pages. A few examples of built-in modules are highlighted below:

Module Name Description
About this Page An image and paragraph with optional headline and call-to-action button
Announcement Bar A colored bar with a single line of text
Core Location Details Basic information about your location with a map
Event Details with Image Basic information about your event with an image
Image Gallery with Captions A grid of images with captions and descriptions
Nearby Locations A list of nearby locations. You can set the radius and number of locations to display
Store Locator A map of all your locations that your customers can filter and search
Three Column List A three-column grid of items that can be used to list out entities in your account

Not all modules are available for all entities or page types. If you do not see one of the modules, it may not be available for the entity type or type of page you are creating.

Currently, when building Pages, you can only select from the built-in modules to create your pages. For custom built modules, please reach out to your Account Manager for additional information. This functionality will be coming soon.

HTML Modules

One feature that is available, if built-in modules don’t provide you with enough flexibility, or there is something more custom you would like to add to your page, is HTML modules. HTML modules are a block of HTML that you can add to the site via the Page Builder. Once you add it, you can include your own code into the code editor.

Additionally, in the HTML Modules you can map to fields in Content, if you store any entity-specific HTML in Rich Text fields.

HTML Module Use Cases:

  • Page headers and footers
  • Embedding a Javascript or HTML widget to your page
