The callout content type is used to call the visitor's attention to something, like a web page or PDF document that could be helpful, by displaying the callout in a special column on the right. For pages to display callouts, the page layout must be set in addition to creating the content.
Note: To add a callout the page must contain a Page Intro content item and possibly other content so that the callout enhancement displays correctly. ThePage Intro content is not covered in this tutorial.
