    Widgets

    Widgets are parts of your pages that contain special information.  Much of the content with special formatting or that needs special treatment is taken care of inside a widget, reducing the amount of time you have to spend working on it.  In this section you will find training on how to create, edit and add widgets to your pages.

    Naming conventions for widgets follow the same rules as do web page contents: Naming Content Containers

    See examples below to get an idea of how these widgets appear on webpages.


    You can display up to four cards in a row and select colors for the row. The more cards in the row, the slimmer the cards will be. Each row is a separate widget.

    Profile Listings Pages

    Called (people.html, faculty.html, staff.html, index.html) in admin screen, Profile Listings pages are those with the list of all faculty or staff members on one page. When you select "Lock for Editing" on this page, you will be able to make edits to each individual professor by selecting "Edit Content" above their name.

    Example Profile Listing page

    Profile Pages

    Profile pages (profile.html) are those that display the information of one faculty member on a web page. Although each different faculty member's information shows up on the profile.html page, notice that the url is different for each person.
