Channel Directory (Site wide)

Site wide Channel Directory is a module that allows for a site wide view of all of your channels.  This is a master page users can visit to see every channel you have in a single place! 

Enabling Channel Directory Site wide:

Step 1: Select Layout

From your admin dashboard on the left menu select "Settings." Then select "Layout" from the drop down.

Step 2: Add a New Section

Select the "+ New Section" button to create your channel directory.

Step 3: Create the Channel Directory

A pop up will appear asking what kind of section are you trying to create, select "Directory - Displays a page of all channels."

Step 4: Editing your Channel Directory

From here you can edit your channel directory:

Name it (Label)

Set an icon (menu icon)

Choose whether to have  description under each video when a user selects a channel from the directory or not (Show video info)

Choose which channels to include in what order (available channels, selected channels).

Then select "Save" when you are done. 

Step 5: Adding images to each channel in your directory

On default the image for each tile representing a channel in your directory will be your brand's icon.  

To customize each tile image, which is highly recommended, go to 'content' on the left hand menu of your admin dashboard and select 'Channels.'
