Section Types

Following is a list of available sections you can include on your web pages, as well as tips for how/where to use them. Section types are available to sites based on their design and layout. If you have a question about section types that aren't listed here, please contact us

Aside

An aside is an option that allows you to draw attention to specific content on the right-hand side of the webpage. This can be used to provide useful information, related links or contact information to users.   

Basic Page

How to manage an aside on a Basic Page: 
If you select Basic Page in your Content menu, you’ll see that Aside Content is already a tab under Main Content. 

Here you will have options to add the title, add an image, add content, and create a link button. 

Other pages

You can also choose to add an aside on other pages such as the Robust 3-Column Page. 
On these pages, you will see a Right Sidebar tab. This is where to add your aside. 

  • Select the Right Sidebar and click the Add Aside button. 
  • To use the button option on the aside, you can provide a URL, or start typing and autofill a URL from a page that already exists within your side. 
  • To preview what your aside will look like, ensure that you have the title of your page filled out and click the preview button at the bottom of the screen. 
  • To return to edit the page, click the Back to Content Editing button at the top in the blue bar. Note: If you navigate away from this preview, you will have to use your browser's back button. 
  • To add another aside on this page, go back to the Aside Content tab and select Add Aside at the bottom. You’ll see that another aside appears with the same options.

To change the position of these asides:

  • Click and hold the intersecting arrows above the title of each aside. This allows you to move the aside up and down on the page, changing the order of appearance. 
  • You can also delete an aside completely by selecting the Remove button in the top right hand corner or each aside. This will collapse the aside into a single line that prompts you to take an action using a button on the right-hand side. From here, you can either confirm removal or restore the aside.

Accordion

An accordion is a type of section that allows you to add content within collapsible headers—which open and close—on your site. We recommend only using accordions sparingly, as they hide content at first glance to the site visitor; FAQs are a good use case, as there usually is a lot of content that needs to be shared in one page and can be easily glanced through to find the. 

In most cases, you’ll find that dividing content up with headers will do. But in the event you want to use an accordion, here is how to add one to your page. 

Accordions can be added to Robust 3-column pages. Because they are their own section, they are separate from the rest of your content and have their own WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor when you create them.

To add or change an accordion on your page:

  • Go to the Main Content tab
  • In the drop-down menu, select Add Accordion. 
  • The first thing you’ll notice is that accordion content is divided by sections. Each section will have:
    • Accordion title - This is what appears in bold when the accordion is collapsed. This is
    • Accordion content - This is the text that will be revealed when the accordion is clicked on. 
  • If you need to remove a section of content for any reason, you can also do this here. Drupal will prompt you to confirm before you remove a section. Once you delete a section, that action cannot be undone. 
  • To reorder the pieces of the accordion, use the intersecting arrows to drag and move, as you do with the Aside. 

Galleries

Galleries display and cycle through multiple images. Typically, galleries contain images that share a similar theme. You should try to keep your galleries under five images, but may have up to seven. Each image should be no larger than 256kb.
Galleries must always be the first section displayed on your Robust 3 Column Pages. 

To add a Gallery on to your page:

  • Use the “Gallery” Section Type in the main content area.
  • Click the Add Gallery option in the drop-down menu 
  • Select a gallery size: small, medium or a full-width gallery spans the page. The gallery will display differently on the page based on the option you select. 
  • The gallery is divided in sections. To add a new image, add a new Gallery Section to the same gallery. 
  • You can use the cross to change the order the images appear in the gallery. Click and hold the cross to drag and reorder the images. 

Subfeatures

Subfeatures promote the most important content on your site. They link to the content with a button and are separated into columns. 

  • Subfeature Title 
  • Subfeature Image - suggested sizes 
  • Subfeature Content - add with a WYSIWYG editor. Suggestion on text size (keeping sub features with similar length).
  • Subfeature Link - add url or begin typing the name of another page on your site to link to an internal website page (such as in the example above). 
  • Link Text - generally a call to action 
  • Document Link - able to link to all doc types. Upload a file or link to a document such as a Google Doc 

You can change the order of your subfeatures using the intersecting arrows.
