How to activate the Browser Client?

The Browser Client

After your succesful and approved opt-in for this Technology Preview, you need to activate The Browser Client for each of your article-based applications. So, in other words: it's your decision which article-based apps will have The Browser Client activated.

  1. When you go to the Application Menu of an article-based app, you'll notice a new item: Browser Client.
  2. Click on Enable Browser Client to enable The Browser Client for that particular article-based application.

Available options

  1. Try Browser Client: This will launch a new window with the new Browser Client.
  2. Disable Browser Client: You can always decide to deactivate The Browser Client for this specific article-based application.
  3. Pre-render Content: This prepares all your content for fast viewing in The Browser Client. By default, the Twixl Distribution Platform will pre-render content on a regular base in the background.
  4. Delete Pre-rendered Content: In case of problems, it can help to delete Pre-rendered Content with this button and Pre-render Content again.
