What are content frames
In contrast to paragraph/text styles, content frames apply to an entire content element instead of a single paragraph or span of text. They wrap all of the content entered in the RTE and the Heading field, if provided.
How to apply a frame
To enable a frame for a content element
- While editing a content element, go to the Appearance tab
- Click the Indentation and Frames drop-down menu
- Select a frame option
- Author and publish content as usual
Content styles for www.ndsu.edu sites as of Fall 2011 include
- Frame 1 in Normal column results in a "callout"
Create a content element and select Frame 1 for it to look like a Callout block.
- Frame 2 in Normal column results in "2-column" text
To get two columns of text, create two content elements (one for each the left and right column) setting both to use Frame 2.
- Frame 1, Frame 2 in Border column
Overuse of content frames
Per University Relations guidelines, you must not use content frames in excess. This means
- Do not put the only content element or every content element on a page into a content frame (exception being 2-column frames)
- Use content frames sparingly to bring attention to noteworthy parts of information; for example, upcoming events or news headlines
