CMS 101: Basic Foundations


This content type is used to attract audiences and display 2 column pages with navigation links on the left and different blocks on the right, promoting redirects to more specific content.

We prepared several variations of Left Navigation Pages:

  • With or without Eyebrow
  • With or without Signup Form

Content Creation Steps


Login to the website.

Use your pace credentials to login. If you're email address was for example, then your username on the website would simply be "jsmith". Your password should match the password you use for all Pace University logins.

Hero Section contains:

  • Title* - required text field for page title value, displayed as H1 title
  • Textural Type - optional text field used to output limited few words value as white decoration text in a hero section when Image or Video are uploaded.
  • Eyebrow Text - optional text field to enter eyebrow title, recommended for 2nd level Left Navigation pages (as example: the title of Parent Left Navigation page)
  • Eyebrow Link - optional autocomplete link field to enter internal or external links. Recommended to use in 2nd level Left Navigation pages to make Eyebrow Text value clickable and redirect to specified destination (as example: the URL of Parent Left Navigation page
  • Video URL - optional field accepts only external vimeo player link format. When filled, ambient video is played on a hero for desktop resolutions. For tablet/mobile - video is absent for performance purposes. That’s why Hero Image becomes required and is used as a placeholder image. When Video URL is filled, the play/pause button appears in the component display right bottom corner.
  • Hero Image - optional field to load 1 image from Media Library. Becomes required when the Video URL field is filled. Dimensions for this image must be 2000x833 at 72dpi.
