Featured Content Block

All content for the Featured Content Block module, used on the home page for the Smith in the Moment feature, is created and chosen by the content author, and does not feed in automatically.

Featured Content Block items have a category taxonomy (News, Profile, Exhibition, etc.) The items are interchangeable; they can appear as the featured item on the left, or as one of the three items on the right. The CMS will size the images appropriately.

Alternate View
An separate build mode displays Featured Content Block Items in a horizontal row of four. In this view, the display titles and categories do not appear.

Events

The Events module will diplay the next four Event elements of the proper taxonomy by calendar date; past events are removed automatically at midnight on the day the event took place, and the next event in sequence is added.

Event items show the date, a title, the location and time, and a brief description. Items can link out to more information.

Important events can be tagged by the admin and will display with a "Notable Event" icon. This feature is usually reserved for major all-college events.

footer call out module

Footer Call-Out

The footer call-outs are organized into "campaigns" (e.g., reasons to visit Smith, reasons to give) so they can be tailored to different areas of the site. The image and "reason," and the corresponding link to other content, load randomly with each page refresh.

The footer call-out is added to a page as a view. Select the appropriate argument number for the campaign you wish to display.

Content Call Out

The Content Call Out displays a title, brief description and link for each Content Call Out Item. It is used for in-page navigation, callouts and access to related content. This callout module uses the same format and functionality as the In-Page Navigation module, but does not display the image or link text for the callout item items. 

This module is commonly used at the bottom of a page to link to additional or related content, and encourages the visitor to "keep exploring." The highlight color for this module follows the section color.

Tabs & Accordions

The tabs module is utilized on the Degrees & Programs landing page to display all majors, minors, concentrations, departments and graduate programs. The tabs module can be used on regular content landing pages and enables users to browse through different content topics one tab at a time. Each tab consists of a header and body. The body for each tab can be freeform content including formatted text, images and links. This module will support up to four tabs. Tabs can be used only as tier (wide) content.

An alternate view provides stacked accordions which open and close when clicked. This version has no limit on the number of tab items and can be used as tier (wide) and right-rail content.

Anchor List

On a single wide page, it may be convenient for users to provide links to the content sections they will find on that page. The anchor list provides direct links to any point on the page you specify. A "Back to Top" link appears when a visitor clicks any of the links, taking them back to the anchor list.

The anchor list links to ID tags (ex: <a id="anchor"> ) you must manually add to your content areas.

Video

Video content is added to the video library and can then be displayed as tier (wide) content or on right-rail pages.

Video content includes an option to show in the library listing, and includes a taxonomy to show related videos. A 16x9 image should be uploaded for the library thumbnail; the video poster image is drawn from the video itself. Video pages include a caption and a time stamp. The module will integrate with Bits on the Run and YouTube embed codes. 

When shown as tier or right-rail content, the caption and time stamp do not display.

Photo Gallery

A photo gallery consists of a set of photos, each of which might have a caption. The photo gallery (and its set of photos) may be reused on multiple pages as desired. Individual photos can appear in more than one gallery.

The user may click the arrows to view a particular slide, but the gallery does not rotate automatically. Each slide can have a link to a different page.

There are two build modes for the gallery; one displays the photos at the full 1170-pixel width, and the other shows the same content at a maximum width of 970 pixels.

It can be used as a smaller version of the photo galleries if there is no need for individual captions; the content on the left remains the same for all images if there is more than one. Slide-show controls are visible only if there are multiple images.
