Use Sidebar Extensions in Entries

Note: Experience Extensions use the legacy approach with extensions. We recommend using the Sidebar UI Location for the Contentstack App Framework to extend the functionality of your apps.

Once you have added a Sidebar Extension in your stack, you can use it in the entries of selected content type(s).

To use Sidebar Extensions in an entry, log in to your Contentstack account, and perform the following steps:

  1. In your stack, click on the “Entries” icon on the left navigation panel.
  2. Select the content type for which you have enabled the Sidebar Extension.
  3. Create an entry, click on the "Sidebar Extensions" icon located on the right panel. Select the Sidebar Extension that you want to add to the entry from the drop-down menu.Use_Sidebar_Extension_in_Entries_1_highlighted.png
  4. Then, the selected Sidebar Extension will expand in the sidebar. Run it to see the results. Use_Sidebar_Extension_in_Entries_2_highlighted.png

Once done using the Sidebar Extension, click on the close (x) button.
