Featured Content Block

The Featured Content Block Element allows you to use existing content and feature a page, post, media file, faculty/staff member, or documents page and highlight it on another page. You can also create custom content using the Featured Content Block.  For instructions on adding the Featured Content Block Page Element to a page, see https://kb.wisc.edu/wiscwebcms/page.php?id=69026.

Using Existing Content with the Feature Content Block will create a link to the page and pull in the Excerpt from the page to display.  This is very useful when you want to reuse links to the same content in multiple locations.  Because the Excerpt is attached to the page, it gets reused through the site.  Updating the Excerpt will update that content everywhere it is used on the site.

Featured Content Block is available in One, Two, and Three Column Content Layouts.  See the examples below on how you might use this Page Element on your site.
