Content App

  • Introduction

    When we are working with the Content app, we can do many things.

    Text can be plain or formatted.

    We can include headings for accessibility (such as Introduction above and Considerations below).

    Images can be aligned to text, which allows for text wrapping, as seen to the right.

    Text can be turned into hyperlinks to websitesemail addresses, or documents.

    It is easy to check spelling, grammar, and accessibility with the built-in checking tools.


    Rules for Section Editors to Follow: (example of a bulleted list)

    • Remember: "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should." -- Anonymous
    • Consistency is key. Most text should be the default size and color, and changes should be made judiciously and for good reasons. 
    • Keep text left aligned. It is easier to read if it stays to the left of the page. If you must center align, use it sparingly and only for titling if needed. Do NOT center align multiple lines of text on a page.
    • Always paste as plain text to keep the style consistent so that it looks professional and is determined by the current template.
    • When using images within the text body:
      • Use photos taken by a student or employee that are clear and high quality, or stock photography that you are authorized to use.
      • Refrain from using older/pixelated images.
      • Avoid animated gifs.
      • If using right or left aligned images, check the mobile preview to verify the wrapping looks okay.
    • If you want text separated into columns, use the proper page layout and multiple content apps. Do NOT paste in a table. Tables should be reserved for data only.
    • When you need to provide titles above your content, turn on the app name in the app options for a clean, consistent look that matches the template.
    • Keep pages simple. Do not overload them with too much content that requires an end-user to scroll too far.

    We can accentuate certain items with boxes, using the Featured Content tool.

    (Ultra templates and newer Premium templates only).

  • Embed videos with just the URL via the Insert Media button.
