Basic Content

Overview

Basic Content is typically in reference to any section where heading options and a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor are together. This can be in Main Content sections as the "Basic" option under Content Molecule or within Asides, Blocks, or Columns.

More often, it references just the WYSIWYG editor itself (which include the responsive template styles) with the understanding that headings may be optional.

Example Heading

This is a warning.

This is instructions.

This is information.

This is a caution.

Note that none of these have the term "Note" in front. This is not necessary as you can provide the urgency within the language.

Teasers set up the topic on a page. Teaser: an advertising or promotional video intended to arouse interest or curiosity especially in something to follow.

That means the following paragraph would not have the teaser style on it. And when we provide a list, we can do it

  • like it completes a sentence (with all punctuation),
  • like it introduces a list (with a colon in the paragraph before the list), or
  • like it sets up steps to complete a task with full capitalization and punctuation.

Some lists do not need bullets, so we can use the no-bullets style, however, make sure the content is easily readable and doesn't look like a paragraph:

  • Item 1: like it completes a sentence (with all punctuation)
  • Item 2: like it introduces a list (with a colon in the paragraph before the list)
  • Item 3: like it sets up steps to complete a task with full capitalization and punctuation

Use of trimheading

A style that can be placed on a panel which trims the headings down on all headings in that panel.
