  5. Fill in the Drupal settings:

    • Plugin location: Depending on your theme you can display the plugin in the node content or the node links.
    • View modes: Select the view modes you want to display the plugin on. The most important view modes are “full content” and “teaser”. The full content view mode is used when a node is fully shown, for example when an entire article is displayed. Teaser view mode is typically used in listings, when viewing a list of news items for example.
    • Create a block: When checked the plugin will be displayed in a block. You can place this block in any region of your site using the block administration page.
