Lists

Using the Lists content type, page managers can create listings of items and provide details for each item. Some examples of lists include community service opportunities, extracurricular clubs/activities, employment opportunities, library services, admissions process steps, and giving programs. Each item in a list can contain a title, a brief description (a short summary or introduction), a long description (the full body of content), and photos.  

There are several ways to show list items on a page. Some of the options enable page managers to provide a lot of information while only using a small amount of space on a page. Page managers can edit the appropriate block style to establish the appearance.

  • Full: The title and descriptions all appear on the page by default.

  • Expandable: Users select the title to expand the descriptions.

  • Detail Page: Users select Read More to access a separate page that contains the descriptions (to use this option, page managers must create a List Detail page in the Pages & Menus task).

Links from this content type that are used in posts on social media will generate a small detail window which shows a short description, the page title, and a link back to the source post. For more information, please click here.
