Blackbaud Website Solution Modules

In the context of the Blackbaud Website Package, a “Module” is a functional element that can be inserted into a page as content using the page editor. This differs from “Plugins” which offer functionality separate from that of the Page Editor.

Basic Modules

Basic Modules are modules included with every installation of the Blackbaud Website Package built on WordPress regardless of package level. You may view working demos of each of these modules at our front-end demo site.

Accordion
The Accordion module provides a vertical list, and each item in the list can be expanded to display more detail.
Audio
Using the Audio module, you can insert one or more audio files from the Media Library or a single audio file from an external source, plus choose some playback options.
Alert
The Alert module creates a basic alert box that can be placed anywhere on your page. This module is perfect for calling attention to a specific event that only has a few tickets left, or a campaign that is nearing its goal. These alerts can be styled as needed to match your specific brand requirements. Note: this Alert is  not a site-wide alert for use in urgent messaging. A site-wide alert can be configured in your Blackbaud Website Package site settings.
Announcement Bar
The Announcement Bar module allows you to create a page-wide announcement that appears either at the top of bottom of the page with options to dismiss it once viewed. This dismiss functionality utilizes cookies that can be set to a pre-determined length of time before the announcement bar will display again for that user.
Blackbaud Embedded Forms
The Blackbaud Embedded Forms module allows you to easily inject the various Blackbaud Form snippets provided by Blackbaud Online Express, Blackbaud Luminate Online, and Blackbaud eTapestry. Each of these products utilize an iFrame or JavaScript snippet to load in their respective forms.
Breadcrumbs
This module enables breadcrumbs on each page which adds additional navigation option for your users and also benefits your site SEO rankings.
Button
The Button module is a button that you insert into your layout to lead visitors elsewhere within your site or to an external link. In addition, the Button has an extra capability: instead of following a link, clicking the button can open a lightbox that displays the video or any other content that you can insert with shortcut or HTML.
Content Slider
Content sliders are typically used on landing pages with long narrow images. Often used for primary calls to action or as a mission statement/story slider, they can be utilized in the position of a traditional slideshow, or utilized for smaller calls to action throughout the page.
Content Tiles
This module allows you to create complex content in one of four different “tiled” designs built into the module. Both static content and posts can be loaded into these tiles.
Divider
The Divider module adds a stylistic separator to your page content, which is especially useful in pages with multiple sections or with a substantial amount of content.
Dual Button
In come cases, you may desire to have a set of buttons aligned next to each other to guide a user in several directions on your site – for example, signing up for an event or learning more about it. This module allows for two buttons to be quickly built and placed next to each other for this purpose.
Event Grid
The Event Grid module pulls events from your site’s Event Calendar and aligns them in a visually appealing (and responsive) grid.
Facebook Page
The Facebook Page module provides the ability to load a Facebook widget into your site, displaying your timeline, Like Buttons, and links back to your main Facebook page.
Font Resizer
The Font Resizer module adds a set of controls to easily increase or decrease the font size of the content of your page. This is especially useful if you are developing a site focused on on a demographic that would benefit from larger font sizes, or are building a site as ADA-friendly as possible.
Gravity Forms
The Blackbaud Website Package built on WordPress utilizes Gravity Forms as its primary method of serving up web forms of various types. This module allows these forms to be easily loaded into a page via a module rather than the standard method of using short codes.
Headings
The Heading module inserts a heading or title into your row within the Page Builder.
Hover Cards
The Hover Cards module allows for calls to action to be created that have a hover effect, revealing additional information, or buttons and other elements to drive engagement.
Image
The Image module lets you insert an individual photo from your Media Library or a custom URL.
Image Carousel
The Image Carousel module allows you to easily create a horizontally-scrolling slider of various images from your Media Library.
Info Box
The Info Box module offers a method of displaying a heading, text, images and buttons formatted to drive a user to take a particular action.
Map (Single Address)
The Map module inserts a Google Map with a marker pointing to an address you specify. The map automatically adjusts in size to fit in the column, and you can specify map height.
Modal Box
The Modal Box module allows for the creation of modal boxes (light boxes) that can contain a variety of content such as images, videos and forms. The modal box can also be set to display when clicked, display on page load and on exit intent.
Number Counter
The Number Counter module displays a number in an animated fashion, with the counter going from zero to the number or percent you specify.
Photo Gallery
The Gallery Module is used to display a gallery of images from your Media Library. Choose the Collage layout to display images in a mosaic. Choose Thumbs to display thumbnails of the images in a grid.
Pinterest
Like the Facebook module, the Pinterest module allows for your Pinterest account to be embedded within the Page Builder. You can load in your Pinterest profile, or a specific Pinterest board.

Tabs
Use the Tabs module to insert tabbed text content into your layouts. This is a great tool for inserting large amounts of text into a small space.
Table
The Table module can be used to create tabular content for listings, directories, etc. The Table has responsive features built in that allow it to reformat itself for small screens.
Team
The Team module is built specifically for creating profiles: examples include featured members, board members, staff members, etc. The module supports a photo along with name and biographical information and links to Facebook and LinkedIn if desired.
Testimonials
Use the Testimonials module to add a basic slider with testimonials to your layouts, or any other set of text and images that you want to display one by one with either autoplay or navigation.

Video
Use the Video module to embed code provided by a third party such as Vimeo or YouTube.

Advanced Modules

Advanced Modules are modules that either require additional configuration time, or require a custom visual design to be delivered in order to best function with your website. Unlike the Basic Modules, they are not intended to be “drag-and-drop” and require some amount of assistance from Blackbaud before they can be utilized on your site. Up to 3 Advanced Modules are included with the Essentials Package, while the Professional Package includes all of the below Advanced Modules. You may view working demos of each of these modules at our front-end demo site.

Blackbaud RENXT Integration
The WordPress NXT connector integrates your constituent database from RENXT into WordPress, allowing you to better target your site towards your recurring donors and members. Users will sign-in to your WordPress driven site, be recognized as a constituent in RENXT, and have content served to them that is targeted to their specific attributes.

There are a number of styling settings for customizing the look of the countdown timer, including the choice of numbers or numbers plus circles.
Custom Grid
Like the Content Grid, the Custom Grid module is designed to allow you to create highly customer displays of your site content. However, while the Content Grid has a fixed “Grid” setup, the Custom Grid allows for further flexibility in display, pagination, filtering, etc.
Dot/One Page Navigation
The Dot/One Page Navigation module is designed for site that incorporate multiple stylistic sections within one large page on the site, whether that be on purely the homepage or across the site. The Dot/One Page Navigation creates a set of “dots” on the left or right side of the page which float as you navigate down the page and allow you to quickly jump to each section on the page.
Facebook Comments
The Facebook Comments module allows you to open up conversation on specific pages or articles on your site. Constituent can comment and have conversations on the page/article itself utilizing Facebook’s own commenting features. By leveraging Facebook for comments, you greatly reduce the risk of spam on your comment wall.
Flip Box
The Flip Box module allows for content or calls to action to be animated to “flip” and show more information, buttons, etc.
Hover Cards Advanced
The Hover Cards Advanced module differs from the basic Hover Cards module in the way it can be customized to meet your specific design needs, as such it is a good fit for Custom Visual Designs produced as part of the Essentials and Pro packages.

The Instagram feed module provides several display options for your Instagram Feed, and leverages the Instagram Feed Pro plugin.
Logo Grid & Carousel
The Logo Carousel is used for content like Sponsor logos in which you want to create a list of icons/logos that can be navigated in a carousel format and setup in a responsive grid.
Posts Carousel
The Posts Carousel module has two distinct display modes: the gallery display shows a thumbnail of the featured image of your posts in a horizontal format that allows for the post title and info to display on hover. This view does not allow the entire post content to be displayed, however. This module allow includes a grid layout that includes the featured image, and the post title and info below the image. Both these displays are in a carousel format, which allows for the posts to slide to the left or right to display additional posts.
Posts Slider
The Posts Slider module only has one layout style: an animated display of one post or page at a time. The post info and optional post excerpt can be displayed in two ways: The featured image can be set to display as the background with the post info and post excerpt appearing on top, or the image can be set to a thumbnail, with the post info and excerpt appearing beside it.
Posts Timeline
The Post Timeline module allows you to arrange your posts in a “timeline” view with custom icons/dates and slider functionality. This module is ideal for creating a timeline of major events in the life of your organization, or showing milestones towards a specific goal.
Pricing Table

You can configure options such as column color, title, price, frequency for recurring costs, a feature list, and a button. This module is especially useful for showing membership levels and benefits of each level.
Smart Banner
The Smart Banner module allows for custom animated banners and calls to action to be designed alongside your custom visual design included at the Essentials and Pro packages.
Timeline
The Timeline module allows content to be displayed in a timeline format vertically on your page.

Likewise with he Post Timeline, this module is ideal for showing milestones in the life of your organization or key dates in a campaign.
