Special Purpose Blocks
If you are using one of the header blocks that does not provide "breadcrumbs" (a list of links showing the user where this page is in relation to the home page of your site), you should probably add a Breadcrumbs Block near the top of your page. (as shown above)
This block is currently available within the Centered One Column layout block, and in the main section of a Left Sidebar layout block.
Publish Date Block
The Publish Date block can either show the day the page was first published or the day it was last updated. This block is styled like the dates in News Articles and is mainly intended for use on site news articles but can be used other places if you so choose.
This block is currently available within the Centered One Column layout block, and in the main section of a Left Sidebar layout block and the Right Sidebar layout used for news articles.
If you are using the 'image' button in the RichText editor, you are probably doing it wrong.
The accordion block is for use building FAQ pages. You can put your questions in the "title" field and answers in the "content field". Many people try to use the block to put a ton of content in a small space. This has rarely been effective and we generally recommend reserving this block for your FAQ page.
The accordion block is available in the main content sections of the left and right sidebar layouts, in the centered one column layout, and in both sides of the two column layout block. In all cases, please check that your questions are not so long that they overflow the gray background when viewed on phones and tablets.
WuFoo, JotForm, and iFrame Blocks
We support WuFoo & JotForm specifically and other embeds via a generalized iFrame block. These blocks are not available by default and you must email us which one you need to enable them.
If you have a WuFoo or JotForm form, we will enable the block named for the appropriate service. The block will only need the the appropriate url to display (no script tag; no iframe tag).
If you have embed code from another service, then we will enable the iFrame block and you can insert the entire iframe tag into that block.
If you have a few very splashy statistics you want to convey to your audience, the Statistics Block may be a good choice. However, as you can see in the example below, the blocks demand a number followed by a short, pithy description of that number. If your content can not be condensed to fit within those constraints, you will need to choose another way to convey this information.
The Statistics Block is only available at the top level of the Interior and Home pages.
The DidYouKnow block was originally developed for the www.caltech.edu homepage. You can request that this block be made available for your site, which will enable the ability to create and display a DidYouKnow block.
To create a Did You Know item on a site with the feature enabled, click the "Did You Know" link in the admin sidebar. This will lead you to the Did You Know item listing page, which has an "Add Did You Know item" button in the upper right. Did You Know items are primarily text and an image, and can optionally link to either a page on your site or any arbitrary URL. They can also be organized by setting only a select few as "live", which enables their display within the DidYouKnow block. You can optionally set some as "Must Appear", which ensures that those items always show up in the block, regardless of its default as a randomized listing.
Once your site has a few Did You Know items, you can add the "Random Did You Know" block to whichever page you like. It can be placed within most layout blocks. When rendered on the page, it will display the specified number of live Did You Know items, in a random order, except for Must Appear items, which will appear at the top in the same order, all the time.
