Using the Factoid Promo

Factoid Promos work best in smaller spaces. Use Column Control to break up your page and create a more dynamic display.

Tutorial

  1. Navigate to and open your page.
  2. Add the Factoid Promo component.
    1. Tip: The Factoid Promo works best in smaller column width spaces; we suggest using this component in conjunction with Column Control or in the sidebar.
  3. A new Factoid Promo component without content will appear on the page as a placeholder.
  4. To edit the component click Edit on the component toolbar.
  5. An edit window will appear so you can customize the promo's overall appearance adding optional text, adding an optional link, selecting an option icon to display, and inserting the required title.
    1. Required fields:
      1. Title
    2. Optional fields:

  6. In the Icon field, choose from a variety of optional icons from Font Awesome (v 4.7.0) to display above the required text. Icons are displayed alphabetically and hovering your cursor over each icon will display that icon's title. Note: Not all Font Awesome icons are available with this component.
  7. Add a required Title in the appropriate field. There is a character limit of 100.
