Priority Link blocks

Introduced in SiteFarm 5.0.0, the Priority Link blocks seek to offer a way to mimic a very popular presentation of the main links on the UC Davis' home page.

The SiteFarm version includes:

Content related by Tags

If you've been working with SiteFarm's various page types for a little while, you probably noticed that certain content types, like Article and Events, allow you to relate content through a Category taxonomy. It may have occurred to you that it would be great to relate content in a similar way even if it doesn't have access to the Category system.

Instead, what we have to offer you, is a system block called Content related by Tags.

Webform Block

The Webform block is a system block (View) that create a container you can assign to a page region and then select an existing webform to display within that container.

There you are, building your site, and you come across a page where there's a noticeable space either before or after your main content in the First or Second Sidebar region.  What's going on here? And, more importantly; how do you fix it?

Reusing your blocks

One of the powerful benefits of using a content management system like Drupal is the ability to reuse the blocks available in the service, but reusing your blocks can mean a couple different possibilities:

UC Credits block

The UC Credits block is a system block (View) that will display information in the footer of your site based on the configuration options you choose to include. This block is designed to satisfy Campus policy 310-70.

Users can configure the following options to display or not:

Placing blocks

Once your block is created, placing your block is a straightforward process regardless of which outlined method you prefer to use in a given circumstance.

Place Block Button - Attaching a block in-page

This method is recommended if you have single block to add; it's the easiest and quickest approach.

Trumba blocks

UC Davis utilizes the Trumba system for its central calendaring and event listing needs, which can also be used in your SiteFarm site. 

Calendars displayed can use your own department's Trumba account ID or an account ID of another department on campus, such as Academic Dates,  Athletics, or Arts and Entertainment.
