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.
CC - Card Deck
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.
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.

CC - List of Links
The "CC - List of Links" widget can be used to create a list of Related Links to other areas of the Colorado College site that are maintained by other Web Authors. You can choose to link to any page from a pre-determined list. If you have a request for a specific link to be added to the list, please contact us.
CC - Call Out Box for Links:
Call out boxes for links offer more flexibility that the "CC - List of Links" widget. In this widget you can select the text you wish for your link as well as any point the link to any Web address, internal or external, that you wish.
