Page components

This section contains information about the functionality and design of page components that we use in EdGEL and EdWeb.

Headings and text

Subheadings can be used to create visual interest and summarise blocks of text.

Basic list types

Lists are a very effective way to convey information online and can be useful in emphasising specific information.

Content images

EdWeb sets the rules for how generic content images display, depending on the screen size.

Block quotes

Block quotes can be used to draw attention to something someone has said that relates well to the page's overall topic.

Tables

Tables help organise text, numbers and other data into an easily readable format.

Overview panels

Panels are used to present links or prioritise content in terms of its importance.

Featured content

Feature boxes can be an important tool in getting users to zero in on the most pertinent information on your page.

Contacts

A structured content block that groups an individual's or functional area's contact details.

Search results

Guidance on the presentation of results related to a search query.

Forms

EdGEL provides support for a wide variety of form elements.
