Asides within the template layout

Asides are the reason why some Content Module Blocks have multiple panels. Asides sections of content that appear in panels, but only one per panel. They can be on the left or right of the main content of the panel, preferably the left when located next to the right navigation at the top of a webpage. They can also be before or after the first heading of the panel, noting that location is more apparent on small device screens. The aside spans edge-to-edge on smaller screens. On larger screens, textual content wraps around asides, but caution should be used with certain elements like lists, tables, or styled text as these don't wrap as well as basic text.

Due to the responsive requirements for multimedia, asides provide the resizing functionality of images and videos. They are also the location of what is typically considered related, or relevant, information to the main textual content of the panel.

Asides provide

  • additional information in the form of multimedia or text,
  • maybe helpful links, and/or
  • buttons to learn more about the topic.

Text heavy modules use the aside layout component. Asides are optional on panels, so media can be organized further down the page content. For example, the first panel could have no aside, but the second panel could have an aside with a photo and textual content. Follow that panel with another with no aside. The choices are endless.

Can place content, buttons, and/or multimedia here.

Purple Poo (Sub Heading)

The Purple Poo spirit organization evolved from the original spirit groups, Ten Tarleton Peppers (TTP) and Ten Tarleton Sisters (TTS). They actively promote school spirit by attending all university events and by posting signs on campus.

Members conceal their identities with costumes until they “unmask” themselves at the annual Leadership and ServiceAwards Ceremony or in their Grassburr pictures. Graduating members give the university president a purple pig as they receive their diplomas.

Champions counter

These images should have a description that aids in their relevance to the content. For example, the Champions Club has multiple amenities for Tarleton students. 

Guys playing the Wii

While images are allowed, use this feature in moderation. A page should not be more than 1-2 MB to load. This takes a long time and discourages visitors from staying.

Slideshows are interactive, but are less effective the more slides you have. Keep these rotating content areas shorter than the typical mobile phone's maximum screen height.

Not many people swipe to this last slide. The content should be engaging, create a purpose for viewing, not merely become a photo album. Photo albums are better suited on social media (e.g. Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram).

Rotating Aside Feature Panel: Champions Club

In the Champions Club, students can purchase kinesiology gear, class supplies, snacks, and water. They can also get help with Professional Development (PD) points. Student workers in the Champions Club are available to help upload PD points.

The club has a laid back and inviting atmosphere for students to relax and hang out between classes. Students are also able to meet with classmates and utilize the available computers. The Champions Club is located in the Kinesiology Building, Room 102.
