Common fields

Pages start with the metadata fields: Display Name, Title, Summary, Author.

  • Intro: Type in a one-sentence description of the page. It will automatically show up in the subhead font. Note: This is often the same content as in the Summary field (see metadata).
  • Image: You can upload a decorative image here.
  • Alt Text: if you do upload an image, enter alt text here. This is mandatory for accessibility.
  • Image-Alignment: The image will be aligned to the right of the text by default. 

Main Content - Body

  • Article template: Enter the main content here. You can use the WYSIWYG editor or enter code directly through the HTML view.

    • Main Content >> Drawers: Each drawer will have 2 components:
      • Drawer Title: Enter the title for that section. Keep it as short as possible (text only-no formatting). This is automatically a heading 2 and will become an anchor link.
      • Drawer Body: Enter any type of content here. Note: Do not use heading 2 inside the drawer. This will cause an error. Start with heading 3 inside a drawer. Learn more about headings.
    • The template will have 1 drawer by default: To add a new drawer, click the plus sign above the drawer title. To delete a drawer, click the red X symbol. You can also reorder drawers by using the up and down arrows.
