Field Demos

As a content admin you can use these fields to build advanced visuals so that you don't have to worry about manual design.

Icon Links

On This Page

Just above you see On This Page being used. Handy for long pages. The Accordion field (below) can alternatively be used to condense long pages.

Body Field

This field's just for heading + text pairs.

Nothing fancy, just headings and paragraphs, potentially formatted as lists.

  1. List Item #1
  2. List Item #2
  3. List Item #3

What's Not Demoed

This page has most fields, but there are a few still that haven't been demoed here. They are:

  1. Header Image (example)- News is using that space.
  2. Logo (example) - This replaces the FACS logo at the top with another one. Good for separate units.
  3. Hide Menu (example) - This hides the left menu and makes the page wider. All elements grow to full width automatically. Great for if you want a strong visual presence and/or don't need the local menu.
  4. News options - This pulls in news in one of multiple ways; currently "Big Header" is used, but Small and Big Body are also options.
  5. Related People (example) "Job Description" option - This pulls in a related person, but emphasizes their job description.
  6. Image Grid - Checkerboard Option (example)

Want to see how these are defined in Expression Engine?

Click "Edit Page" at the bottom right of this page. Switch between the default tab and the Advanced tab to see the field definitions.

Let's Use Accordion

  • This field expands/collapses accordion items. Useful for long amounts of content that you'd like discoverable. The "On This Page Menu" field does something similar, in that it makes content on long pages discoverable. 

  • This is a field where you can define just the "Title" sub-field, and a heading will be output instead of the normal content.

Card Grid

This is the Card Grid. It is used when you'd like cards, each with an optional paragraph, and option link from your title.

You don't have to use the Link URL field within this field. You can simply link from this text if preferred.

    Image + Text Field

    Image + Text is handy if you want an image followed by some text. Typically this is for smaller images and larger amounts of text. For example, if you don't use the Related People field to automatically pull somebody's profile from the directory and you want to define it yourself, this is a good option (or Card Grid).

    Another Image + Text

    Image + Text is handy if you want an image followed by some text. Typically this is for smaller images and larger amounts of text. For example, if you don't use the Related People field to automatically pull somebody's profile from the directory and you want to define it yourself, this is a good option (or Card Grid).

Wow, this is a lot of fields!

This is the Testimonials field. Wow, this is a lot of fields! As you can see, it's pretty neat. If you use the Standout Quote sub-field, it should be in the quote somewhere here. The full testimonial, here, can be long or short.

  1. Timeline

    This is the Timeline field. The basics are date and title. But you can also add custom icon, paragraph and image for each slide.

    Timeline
  2. Next Slide

    The Timeline field is located at the bottom of the Advanced tab. Use it to make something like this.

    Next Slide
  3. Final Slide

    Typically this field looks better with more width. You can do this by not including a Contact box or eliminating the local/left menu (Advanced > Hide Local Menu).
