There are various set places throughout the Good Grants platform where text content can be placed to provide information for your users. We call these areas 'content blocks' as they are typically a block or box of content rather than a whole page. Some 'pages' in the system can display multiple content blocks.
With a new account, there is some default text content already placed in some content blocks. You are welcome to use or change this content as you need.
Create and edit content blocks
- Go to Content > Content blocks.
- Click on New content block or click on an existing content block
- Under Content location, choose where you want the content to show; see: Content block locations
- Add a Title
- Edit the content — it can be as long as you need.
Tip: you can use merge fields to customize some content blocks.
- Under Visibility, choose the default state
- Click Save
To format content you can use markdown formatting. With markdown, besides basic formatting (bold, italic, lists, links, etc), images and videos can also be embedded in the content. HTML is not supported.
Some content blocks are in a box that can be toggled open/closed. The Visibility options can be set to:
- Open initially, then closed: on the first visit to the page the content block is on, the box is open. On subsequent visits, the box is closed.
- Open: the box is open by default on every visit to the page. Unless the user closes the box, their preference for it being closed is remembered.
- Closed: the box is closed by default, but can always be toggled open by the user.
