Text Blocks & Testimonials

The Red theme offers both basic Text Block components and specialized components that are demonstrated below. Most have variations built into the component and can be used for a variety of text and image content needs.

Components built on a specific page, cannot be copied and reused on other pages. For reusable content blocks, like news items, use one of the four custom post types available.

Text Block component

The basic Text Block component includes an optional title field, required text field and options to include an image at three different sizes and a link list. Image options are full-width, half-width placed on the right or left of the body text, and one-third width placed on the right or left of the text. The full-width images appear between the title and text.

Donec venenatis nibh quam, et bibendum nunc sagittis at. Suspendisse non rutrum felis. Morbi libero libero, ultricies.

Text Block with a Google Map

This component includes an optional title field, a required text field and a required Google Map field. To create the map, simply type the address you want shown. The map feature includes Map data that you can edit for the initial map zooming level, center coordinates and map marker coordinates.  In fact, if you want to be even more precise in the map layout, you can drag and drop the marker icon on the Google Map field while editing the location – just know that the component will update the address field in relation to where you drop the marker.

Multi-Column Text Component

The Multi-Column Text component allows you to incorporate 2 to 3 columns of text across a specific page.  It also provides an organized method to display larger amounts of text, without taking up too much vertical space on the page.  Similar to a Text Block component, you can incorporate Link Lists (both internal and external) with the Multi-Column Text component, but no images.

See below for an example:

Text Column One

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Maecenas neque lacus, blandit at consectetur non, pulvinar et ligula. Mauris sollicitudin lectus porta neque fermentum ultrices. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Duis lacinia nulla et luctus interdum. Nulla et elit eu quam porttitor consectetur. Phasellus eu porttitor metus, nec fermentum dui. Sed iaculis, arcu sed placerat ultricies, sem lorem placerat nibh, eget hendrerit justo libero sed nisl.

Text Column Two

Nam sed purus fringilla, cursus diam vitae, auctor sem. Duis et dolor ac risus vehicula commodo. Etiam at fermentum dui. Duis condimentum imperdiet pellentesque.  Pellentesque at lorem a lectus bibendum rutrum. Suspendisse malesuada dui nunc, a egestas orci feugiat congue. Duis laoreet nisi non odio pulvinar, ut finibus lectus condimentum. Aenean mollis, magna vel fringilla molestie, velit mauris posuere sem, vitae hendrerit augue ante eget mauris.

The Accordion Component

Below you will find an example of the Accordion component. The Accordion component is an excellent way to organize content when you need to have numerous Text Blocks or Tables on a single page. It hides the content until the visitor clicks on the Accordion and reveals the embedded text or table. It keeps the page looking concise and doesn’t create a density of text to the visitor. See an example of the Accordion component below.

Quote Component

The Quote component uses a maximum of 60 words. You do not need to add the quote marks as they will be automatically added. Optional fields for Author Name and Author Description are also included. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Vivamus consectetur pellentesque turpis sit amet faucibus. Nullam convallis dignissim tincidunt. Praesent at ultrices odio.

Testimonials Component

example 1

This text field has a maximum of 60 words. If the text is a quote, you must add the quote marks. Images will show as circles by default, you do not need to do any editing to create that effect. Although this component is intended for highlighting persons, it can be used to highlight buildings, classes, campus features, etc. The content use is flexible. The Author Name and Author Description are optional. Only one image and text block are required for this component.

Donec venenatis nibh quam, et bibendum nunc sagittis at. Suspendisse non rutrum felis. Morbi libero libero, ultricies.

The Tab Group Component

The Tab Group component is another handy way to organize extensive content on a single page.  Similar to the Accordion component, you can embed several Text Blocks or Tables in one area.  The Tab Group component allows you to relay several chunks of information to the visitor, without taking up too much page space, and preventing that cluttered feeling of a page full of text.  See below for an example of the Tab Group component in action.

Example of a Text Block within the Tab Group component

You can either embed Text Blocks (with or without images and link lists) as well as Tables.  Click on “Tab 2” above to see the Table component embedded within the Tab Group component.

Example of a Table Within the Tab Group component

Donec pellentesque, tellus a auctor posuere, est tortor sodales urna, rhoncus mattis ipsum ipsum posuere justo. Donec in commodo justo. Donec non ipsum dolor. Donec vel sem turpis.

At A Glance Component

The At A Glance Component is an excellent way to display written content in a link tile format without requiring links.

  • Tile Header

    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. In a tellus cursus, egestas turpis quis, condimentum quam. Fusce a pulvinar diam. Aenean fringilla condimentum ligula in suscipit. Curabitur mauris lectus, congue eu odio nec, luctus convallis nisi. Proin massa arcu, tempus vel aliquam ut, commodo sed sem.

  • Second Tile

    Fusce at turpis nec metus ultricies mattis et sed mauris. Morbi porta erat vitae ante elementum, sit amet finibus justo semper. Ut posuere eu velit vel vulputate. Vestibulum non sagittis mi.

  • No Links Necessary

    Pellentesque posuere velit ac sapien facilisis congue. Nulla dignissim, libero nec iaculis luctus, libero orci vulputate turpis, sit amet porttitor nibh turpis at neque. Cras eleifend a metus pellentesque sodales. Sed rutrum leo et luctus vulputate.
