Left Column Content Widgets – Callout Box

This article will explain how to implement the “Callout Box” widget for the left column section of your page. 

Step 1: Select the page you’re going to update and click “Edit.”

Note: Make sure that the page you want to edit is highlighted in the site content menu.

Step 2: The editing pop-up will display basic information about your page in the first section. In the next section, you will see regions that represent different areas on your page that you can edit. Since we are focusing on left column content, select the corresponding region.

Step 3: Once you click on left column, it will expand and give you the option to select a widget. Select “Callout Box.”

If you want to know how to add a new widget, refer to our KB article about adding a new widget.

Step 4: Your callout box will automatically default to “Yes” for show. If you want to hide your callout box, select “No.”  For more information about the “Show” function, visit our KB article about how to show/hide widgets. 

Step 5: The headline is the main topic of your callout box. You can add a more detailed description in the copy section.

Note: The callout box is intended for concise content. If you plan to write more than a paragraph, consider using a different widget.

Step 6: If you want to add a link that provides more information about the topic, scroll down further and you will see a section titled “Links”. Here, you can add a link that directs the user to a page within Cascade, external website, or a file.  To learn more about the different links, go to our KB article about the types of links.

To add more links, click the green plus sign parallel to “Link.”

Step 7: Click “Save & Preview” to see the changes you have made. If you need to make more edits, follow Steps 1 and 2 again to go back to your widget.

If you are satisfied with your content, go ahead and submit the page for approval and you are done.
