Using the Document library widget

The Document library widget is stored under the Document library widget category and is an editor widget by default (i.e. can only be added to editor widget zones on the Page tab of the Pages application in the administration interface).

Compared to the Document library web parts, the Document library widget only has a limited set of properties to configure:

  • Library path - path to the parent page under which the library documents are stored, e.g. /My-document-library/My-images; only CMS.File page type documents from the first level under the entered path are displayed.
  • Page size - number of documents listed on a single page.
  • Combine with default culture - if No, the widget only displays documents from the current culture that are stored under the Library path. If Yes, documents from the default culture are displayed along with documents from the current culture. In this case, the default culture documents are marked with the culture’s flag and the Translate option is available in their menu.

Besides the fact that only a limited set of properties is available with the widget, its functionality is identical to the Document library web part.
