A Learn More block—an assortment of links to internal or external pages—can be displayed on any page that uses the “page” template.
That includes most pages on your site; exceptions include your home page and news page. The intent of the Learn More block, as the name suggests, is to provide links to information that helps site users learn more about that page’s topic. The Learn More block will appear on the page in a gray trapezoid with a “Learn More” heading.
The Learn More block is a Smart Form. Create it using this process:
Note: You will need to know the exact URL you want to link to, even for internal links. In this case, internal links are not created as quicklinks. You may wish to copy the URL and paste it into the Smart Form.
Individual items within the Learn More block can be reordered or removed.
To do so, click on the icon to the left of the individual Learn More item. You will be given the following options to use as necessary:
To make the Learn More block display on your page, you will need to alter the metadata. Follow this process:
Note: Keep in mind that Learn More blocks display only on pages that use the “page” template. If you add a Learn More block and it does not display, check which template the page is using. To check, you must be in edit mode and go to the Template tab.
Also Note: Content items that you have added through metadata, such as collections, carousels, Learn More blocks, etc., will not appear in preview mode until the content item to which they were added has been approved by the Web Team. Of those items added through metadata, those that go through workflow will also need to be approved before they appear in preview mode. For instance, carousel slideshows go through workflow; collections typically do not.
To remove a Learn More block from your page, simply go to the Metadata tab, go to the Learn More block, and click on Clear. Again, this is a change to the content block, and it will need to be submitted (or resubmitted) for publishing.
