Content Formatting and Styling with Microtemplates

There are various other templates available to you in the microtemplate window that can help format and style content on your page. As with the other microtemplate examples, selecting any of these options will insert placeholder code into your editing window that you'll need to replace with appropriate content. 

Content Beige Box

A subtle beige background applied under padded black text that makes it easier to callout key ideas and directions.

Columns, Grids, and Profiles

Microtemplates thumbnailsThe microtemplate options for faculty profiles, grids and building columns is the method you should use to format your content on the page. For accessibility, you should only use tables for data -- not formatting.

Please note that in the editor, the content will not  visually display the new formatting, you'll have to follow the placeholder guidelines and will see how they look on the page when you save your draft. You can always go back and edit until it's tailored to meet your vision.

The University Honors Staff Listing page is a good example of column profiles in use.

Buttons

Call to Action buttons are the best way to draw attention to your user for the true meaning of the page. If you're looking for students to register for an event, title the button 'Register' and update the link to the appropriate form or page. 

LINK LABEL

Don't overuse buttons on your page; this can dimenish their impact on users.
