To customise the rotator create a ‘spotlight.json’ file with write permissions in the assets/shared/spotlight directory. There will be a sample file in this directory called spotlight.json.sample. To initialised the spotlight CMS editor with no entries the spotlight.json file should contain the following text.

{“items”:[]}

Once this file has been created you can add entries to the rotator by selecting the “Spotlight CMS Editor” from the “Tools” menu of the Registry Dashboard.
