ShortPoint Generator: Introduction

What is ShortPoint Generator?

ShortPoint Generator is one of the tools found in ShortPoint Dashboard. It allows you to create custom elements so that they appear in the Page Builder along with other ShortPoint elements. ShortPoint Generator is also used to create footers.

What is the main purpose of ShortPoint Generator?

The idea behind ShortPoint Generator is to create a custom element or a group of elements and be able to reuse it on different pages of your site collection. After the element is ready, it appears in the Page Builder like this:

You can insert it into your page with just a few clicks instead of re-creating the element from scratch.

Another use case here is to create a footer to use on all Site Pages. For that, we will also use the ShortPoint Generator, but in combination with Theme Builder.
