  • Homepage / Modules

    Feature Profile

    Used for highlighting a person. This content type is a bit advanced, but very flexible for the information you may want to include.
  • Homepage / Modules

    Feature Link

    Allows you to post a photo, title, blurb and image that redirects to any internal or external web page. If this appears in home_news, be sure to include the Label, which is small text above the headline. If this is in home_top or home_center, please include something in the Tab field as well (such as “Featured”).
  • Homepage / Modules

    Feature Story

    Used for news articles, press releases, announcements, etc. Requires a short blurb. When the headline/link is clicked on, it opens to a page that contains the story in the Body.
  • Homepage / Modules

    Feature Photo Gallery

    The Feature Photo Gallery displays as a modal window and is usually embedded in sidebars. The Title, Blurb and Image will represent the gallery as a whole. The Unique Identifier will be used to associate other pieces of content that will be part of this gallery, so it is best to keep this simple enough to remember, but complex enough that someone else does not end up using the same one. For instance, a Unique Identifier of “loyola” would be a poor choice. However “loyola-weekend-2012” would be better.
  • Homepage / Modules

    Feature Video

    Displayed as a modal window, the Feature Video can be used throughout the site to highlight a video. The field YouTube Video ID should contain the source video’s ID, which can be found after the equal sign in the video’s URL. For instance, in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZA9N05D8og The YouTube Video ID is: xZA9N05D8og
