Basic template: Of Note

The Of Note component puts Of Note items (announcements) in the center of the webpage.  Of Note items have a title, description and optional url and image.  The items can be added with a scheduler which allows the item to be displayed during a specific time-span.

Any webpage requiring a centrally located Of Note should at minimum use:

  1. Text Editor Component (or Text Editor with Of Note)
    • should contain the page title (using Heading 1)
    • should contain an introduction to the Of Note
  2. Of Note Component
    • contains the ofnote items
