Right Column Content Widgets – Callout Box

This article will explain how to implement the “Callout Box” widget to your right column content section. 

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 right column content, select the corresponding region.

Step 3: Once you click on right 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 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 show/hide widgets. 

Step 5: There are two styles you can choose from for your callout box. Select the style you want.


Style One (Light Background, Dark Font Color)

Style Two (Dark Background, Light Font Color)

Step 6: Now you can add an image. If you don’t want an image in your callout box, go to step 7.  If you choose to add an image, be sure to add alt-text.

Step 7: 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 8: 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.
