  • Preparsed Snippet: select Yes to have the morsel behave as if it was a native EE Snippet, but with the template data parsed before bing put into the template.
  • Refresh: Leaving this value at "0" will cause your morsel to only be refreshed by the weblog, template or category update rules listed below:
    • Template Refresh: when one of the selected templates is edited, the morsel will be refreshed.
    • Channel Refresh: when an entry is published or edited in one of the selected channels, the morsel will be refreshed.
    • Category Refresh: when a category is created or edited in one of the selected category groups, the morsel will be refreshed.
  • Code: this is where you place the template code you'd like to have cached and available to be pulled into your front end templates via the Fetch tag.
  • Usage Notes: you can store some notes about this morself for yourself here.
  • Click the Update button at the bottom of the page and your morsel will be saved.
