An addon is an independent effect or extra functionality which you can attach to an element or a section, which then influences how the element/section looks, behaves, invisibly communicates with external services, or all of this combined.
The “Animation” add-on makes an element/section move.
The “Link” add-on makes it a … link.
The “GTM Event on Click” add-on sends a Google Tag Manage event upon clicking.
In other words, an add-on is a superpower you give to elements or sections to make them do special things they normally don’t do on their own.
The best part is an element/section can virtually have an endless number of add-ons (as long as they don’t interfere with each other).
Follow the steps outlined next to learn how to work with add-ons.
Select an element or a section
Choose “Add-ons > Add new“
Select an add-on from the list
Right-click the element/section with the add-on
Choose “Add-ons > [name of add-on]“
Each add-on will have its own set of config options. [#TODO: add links to add-on reference pages]
Just like you can create custom elements and sections, you can create custom add-ons. See https://vev.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/HELP/pages/579305504/Code+-+Extending+Vev for more information.
