Acrolinx for AEM checks all the default AEM components that you have the option to edit but isn't always able to insert suggestions if the components aren't enabled for inplace editing.
If your components are capable of inplace editing, then the Acrolinx Sidebar can insert suggestions into those components. If your components aren't capable of inplace editing, then the Acrolinx Sidebar checks your content, but the cards in the Sidebar won't replace the content, we call these 'read-only' components.
Here are some typical components that Acrolinx checks including components that are 'read-only'.
Tip: If you have special or custom components, then we have a special tool you can use, the Acrolinx Configuration Assistant. The Acrolinx Configuration Assistant helps you configure which AEM custom components you want Acrolinx to check. And you no longer need to edit the custom components configuration file (CustomComponents.json) in CRXDE Lite. You can write, validate, and preview your configuration results all in one place.
It can be a little tricky to analyze the structure of your page, so you might need some help from your administrator. Define custom components with the Acrolinx Configuration Assistant .
