Templates and modules

Templates provide a framework to create pages quickly and consistently with minimal coding knowledge. There are two main template types: Slabs and Cards.

Slabs are the main horizontal containers of content that are stacked on top of each other to build a page. The content they mainly contain are images, videos and text and can also include Cards.

Slab templates are applied directly to content containers within a page asset. They can be applied to a container when inserting a new container or once the container has been created. Note:  for templates to work correctly the content type must be WYSIWYG.

Cards are stand-alone sections of content that relate to one subject, eg. a staff member card containing the photo, name and department they work in. Multiple cards can be combined within a slab to create a collection eg. A listing of all staff members within a department.

Card templates are created in the asset creation wizard in Edit+ from the card menu on the left of the wizard. They are created in a specific card template repository, within folders set by the template.

Templates have a responsive design. To see the mobile view of the page you can simply resize your browser.

Useful information

Adding link to phonebook

Use the link format below, substituting the relevant email address:
http://app.griffith.edu.au/phonebook/phone-search.php?email=t.smith@griffith.edu.au&format=advanced

Note: In a very few cases this link format may retrieve more than one person's record. In this case it is possible to add the person's first name as an extra search parameter, e.g. http://app.griffith.edu.au/phonebook/phone-search.php?email=t.smith@griffith.edu.au&name=thomas&format=advanced

My changes are not reflecting on my live site

The cache could be the cause of this. There are a few things you can do when previewing your recently live pages.

  1. Append /_nocache a the end of the web path e.g https://www.griffith.edu.au/_nocache
  2. Clear your browsers cookies and cache
  3. Open the page in an incognito/private window in your browser.

Note: If you are a publisher for the page and you are previewing your page you will be able to see under construction and safe edit pages. It is best practice to check your pages in an incognito window to best reflect what a general user will see.
